In brief: Baby Powder

Parents have used baby powder for years to help reduce diaper rash, and those same properties can help adults with sweating problems.
Baby powder can absorb sweat and keep down sweat production in areas where there's skin-on-skin contact, like the underarms or thighs. The fragrance can also mask body odor.
