I have body odor on one of my armpits so i tried using aluminum chloride, but it didn't worked. I've also tried natural remedies but nothing works. ?

Body Odor: Apocrine glands secrete a fatty sweat directly into the tubule of the gland. When you're under emotional stress, the wall of the tubule contracts and the sweat is pushed to the surface of your skin where bacteria begin breaking it down.

How likely is aluminum poisoning from carafate (sucralfate)? I use prescription strength anti-persperent that contains aluminum also.

How likely is aluminum poisoning from carafate (sucralfate)? I use prescription strength anti-persperent that contains aluminum also.

Not likely but ?: Sucrafate and Anti-perspirants both contain aluminum which is absorbed and stored in bodily tissues. Chronic may cause toxicity, most particularly for patients with chronic renal disease or who are on dialysis. I would advise switching to an anti-perspirant that doesn't contain aluminum such as Arm and Hammer. Ask your physician if there is an alternative to Sucrafate for your condition. ...Read more
