I'll get hammered for this question haha

So, I always smell. I'm a big sweater in the arm pit area. I've tried all the clinical protection ones (all brands, Rexona, Mitcham etc) I've tried sprays, roll one, no sweat brand. I've even seen a doctor who recommended I use an antibacterial soap when washing my arm pits. I've had laser hair removal. Aside from Botox what else can I do??? It's not a strong odor. Others can't smell it. But I can when I sniff my arm pits haha. Any help would be great.

I switched to no pong a few months ago and best decision ever!! I still sweat but no smell, even spent several hot days without a shower camping recently and I didn't smell.

OP Thankyou I'll have to try it.

OP Ok, so my no pong arrived and it is freaking amazing!!!! I purposely tried to sweat today to test it out. I put the heater up high, wore my knitted jumper and re-arranged my kids room. I was a sweaty beast. But not nearly as sweaty as I would be and absolutely no smell. Nothing!! I am hooked. Thankyou so much.

Make sure it doesn’t linger in clothes by spraying the inside of armholes with white vinegar before washing.

OP Haven't heard this one! Thankyou.

 Omg I tried this DO NOT do it!!! You will not get the stink out of your clothes, vinegar mixed with sweat in your clothes is impossible to get rid of and it will stink worse each time you wear it lol

OP Hahaha! Ok thankyou. I generally just west singlets, and if cold a singlet under a jumper. I steer clear of t-shirts as I sweat even more in them.

 I do the vinegar in my husband’s work wear before the washing machine - the smell doesn’t linger at all.

Why wouldn’t you try botox?

OP Because due to covid I've lost my job. So right now I can't spare a $1,000. I would definitely look into it once this is all over.
