    Recently, summer has come upon and the sweltering heat has caused my pits to drip with sweat.

    Is there an unscented deoderant that doesn't interfere with my EDTs and colognes? I normally shop at the Bath and Body works for such so a recommend of a product there is very appreciated.

    Ask your pharmacist for Certain-Dri. It is an antiperspirant.

    I cannot wear deodorants because when I sweat, it causes the deodorant to melt down my arm. I have had the best luck with Degree (origional scents are now labeled as Degree for Women) antiperspirant. I don't recall offhand if they have a scentless, but probably do. If you have some issue with the ingredients, such as aluminum, etc...then you'll have to look elsewhere, of course. Kiss My Face has a sale on some of their deodorants for $1 under the Dollar Store section of their site, along with some castile soaps and shaving creams.

    Certain-Dri does work, I use it. You can get it cheap online too at drugstore.com. It is OTC so no prescription needed. Drysol on the other hand I believe needs a prescription. It is an unscented anti-perspirant however there is a smell from something in the formula, perhaps the high level of aluminum?

    I use the certain-dri at night every few days (which is enough). Then I put on a deoderant in the morning such as Mitchum just to smell lovely. The box says you don't need to use a deoderant in the morning because with no sweat you won't smell, however the first few times you use a product such as Certain-Dri you may get some minor drippage. Takes a few times to really work.

    If you don't believe that it works read the reviews on drugstore.com, hundreds swear by it. A similar product but more expensive and harder to find (except online) is Maxim. Does the exact same thing.

    I have recently switched over to a deoderant crystal after getting tired of yellow stains in my shirts from regular deoderant.

    I like Tom's of Maine brand, at some drugstores or health food stores. No aluminum, so no pit stains. Shaving your pits once a month helps a lot in the sweat/stink department.

    To solve the pit-stain issue, I just wear white V-neck undershirts under my long-sleeved shirts instead of wifebeaters. The undershirt will get the stain, leaving my nice dress shirts clean. I don't think the stain comes from any product either, it is from the oils excreted from your underarms. People I know who don't wear deodorant or AS at all are the ones who have the worst pit-stains.

    I like one called Odaban, from www.odaban.com, better. Lasts longer, stings less, more powerful, and it is in a spray bottle, so it never leaks.

    Nair your underarm ever now and then and it will help out a lot. Do it at night time, leave in for 8 mins, then shower with warm water, apply aftershave liberaly and go to sleep.

    I really like the crystal (what I use) but it isn't as strong as Anthony's Logistics or Happy Me. The last two are unscented.

    I wish I could use Happy Me or Anthony's as they are perfect, unfortunately, I am allergic.

    I don't shave but I use a clippers to remove most of the bacteria holding hair.

    I got Tom's of Maine Unscented lat night and it's only been one day so far, but it's been very weak so far.

    Would regular shaving of the pits help? I'm stuck with the Asian Hairless syndrome so all I get is a small tuff of pit hair.

    I don't think so. Lots of women have hyperhydrosis and shave their armpits regularly. Shaving doesn't close the pores it just removes the hair that the sweat can drip on. Some people are just blessed with being able to not sweat a lot from certain areas and some have to control it with an anti-perspirant. Some even have it so bad they have to have their sweat glands removed in certain areas.
