I use best products, shower twice a day, use deodorant & body spray yet I have bad odor. Why? What to do? It's embarrassing especially with my partner
Don't rule it out: Most antiperspirants contain aluminum. This can enter your body through pores. It can also be inhaled when you spray. If you have oral lichen planus I think it merits a look. Also your axillary lymph node is located directly in your armpit. Aluminum may make cause a localized or systemic reaction. For this reason I have personally switched to an aluminum free deodorant. ...Read more
Which is better, a "spray" anti-perspirant deodorant or a "roll" anti-perspirant? And why? What's the best brand? I use dove & nivea currently. Ok?

High aluminium levels can cause anemia, nerve pain and symptoms like dementia.If one has kidney damage, they must consult the physician before they start any medicine or natural products like herbal medicines. ...Read more
I have a spray deodorant and the can says "ask doctor before use if you have kidney problems". Kidneys are healthy but am I causing damage using this?

My pcp recomended I use moisturizer for my dry skin. I hate the greasy feeling. I don't even use sunblock or bug spray and only spray on deodorant.?
Many choices: Try daily moisturizers that are less greasy like kiehls, cetaphil, neutrogena and eucerin. However, think hydration from the inside and drink a lot more water 8-10 glasses minimum/day. Also, consider oral/dietary hyaluronic acid which has been shown to help with dry skin...And wrinkles. Good luck. ...Read more
W/ gel deodorant my sweat bleaches clothes. It melts shoe polymers/glue. Have hyperhidrosis, shoes stink after a month, sprays don't work. What to do?
Proven effective OTC vaginal Ph balance control. Issue--non-STD odor & sweating. Sprays work; don't like 'em; sensitive skin. Often use bar deodorant.
Here are some...: The odor represents the ending smell resulting from interaction among secretions of apocrine glands, local tract like vagina, and local bacteria. Deodorant use is only to artificially alter and deceit that local smell; there is no cure for personal unique "bad" smell but to cope with heightening local hygiene after ruling out and treating any suspected local infection.

My husband got a really bad rash under his armpits from using old spice deodarant, what should he do? He used the deodarant stick and also the body spray and his rash resembles burns and is very sore and painful.
It: It is possible that this is a contact dermatitis due to allergy from a substance such as fragrance or preservative in the deodorant. I would avoid that deodorant and consider using a mild topical Hydrocortisone cream in the area. If not improved in a few days, consider visiting a dermatologist for diagnosis and to discuss treatment options and possible skin allergy testing. I hope that helps. ...Read more
Antiperspirants: It's best to let the body do what it needs to, i.e., sweat out toxins (of which there are far too many in our world today). If using an antiperspirant consider using it sparingly, for big events rather than daily. Avoid odorous foods such as garlic and onions on those days when you want to stay especially fresh and clean-smelling. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Unlike the like fds's, do deodorant suppositories like Norform's throw off a woman's Ph balance? Are they safe to use?
No need.: They can all affect pH. All can possible cause irritation. IF you have an odor that does not go away with daily bathing, then you need to be checked for infection. Vaginal deodorizers & douches, are a big waste of money & can cause increased production of discharge. The body knows how to make enough normal discharge, & if good hygiene is followed, in cleaning, and with safe sex, neither is needed ...Read more

I used alcohol diluted with water, baking soda and oil as a deodorant for armpits, it safe while pregnant?
We mix sodium bicarbonate with water and use it as deodorant (armpits). it works perfectly. But is it safe?!
It's safe: It doesn't work very well. Nowadays if you have body odor, you'll be at risk to lose your job and nobody will tell you the real reason. You also can't smell yourself. The old lie about ordinary deodorants causing cancer was traced back to a guy selling a phony mineral deodorant. Be smart. ...Read more

I take an internal deodorant supplement (nullo) to treat symptoms of urinary incontinence. Is this safe, and in what doses?
Unknown safety.: I did a quick research on the product. Chlorophyllin is a chemically altered chlorophyll. It has not been tested in a way that promotes a doctor to recommend it. Doses and side effects and long term effects are unknown. Finally, it has been used for rectal incontinence, not urinary incontinence. This is because it influences the gut/intestinal bacteria. ...Read more

Deodorant containing sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), corn starch, sustainable palm oil from non-peatlands, tea tree oil be safe for pregnancy?
It depends: It depends on where you're spraying them, in what concentrations, and whether you personally tolerate them. If you have sensitivities towards what you're spraying, you could develop a skin or other tissue reaction. You want to dilute essential oils into a carrier oil to at least 2% (or less). http://www.
