No one in Darwin really treats underarm sweating, my doctor is great, but he didn’t really know what to do about it. Most people think it’s no big deal, but if you have bad underarm sweating, it rocks your confidence, especially around chicks. Mates just to give me heaps, but it gets to you eventually…Rexona, Driclor and all the other chemist stuff didn’t work- it just gave me a rash in the armpit area. Now I fly down to Brisbane every 7 months, say hello to my folks, and get a top up of sweat stopping treatments. It works every time.

I don’t think about my sweaty armpits now that I’m with a bird.

Specialist comment

Underarm sweating ranges from mild to severe. Most cases of mild axillary sweating can be managed with topical antiperspirants such as Driclor. The correct use of Driclor will give the best results. Always apply to dry skin, and use a hair dryer on the cool setting before application. This will reduce skin irritation. The next step if antiperspirants don’t work, is sweat stopping treatments injections. This procedure is well tolerated, relative painless, and is successful in over 95% of cases.
