To keep your pits from sweating up a storm this summer, Dr. David Bank, a dermatologist in Mt. Kisco, New York, says be wary of deodorants claiming to be clinical strength.
He says, Unlike prescription strength, theres no technical definition of clinical strength. Its just a marketing and advertising term.
Bank says many people turn to Botox to deal with hyperhidrosis excessive sweating but for the rest of the population, hes got a simpler sweat solution.
If you dont want to let a doctor prescribe something for your pits, Bank recommends Certain Dri, an over-the-counter antiperspirant made with aluminum chloride, the same sweat stopping solution in the prescription models.
To keep from sweating through your shirts, Bank recommends applying deodorant at night when youre fully dry, letting it seep deep into your sweat ducts.
