Posted , 17 users are following.

What is wrong with me!!? Everything I put on makes me smell worse. I haven't wore deodorant for 2 years now. I shower and put it on hoping this nightmares went away and I smell like a skunk lol. Its really bad and only after its been on 10 mins. I have to wash it back off. 

Its really bad ladies help!!!!! I've already tried all of the secrets, lady's choice and degrees.

    Woops I know that one, I remember mentioning the exact same issue to my doctor and the reply was"raised eyebrows!" However I do think you smell yourself more than others do. I use a lotion called "vinaigre de toilette 80* , " by diptyque. It is pricey but well worth it as it lasts for ages. It is a horrible sensation standing in front of people and thinking " I smell awful," I was put on HRT and that issue dissapeared. But the lotion did work for me before I was put on HRT. My husband found a link on internet on how to make your own lotions with vinegar water if I can find it I will sent it on for you. 

    Best of luck

    info on what i use  can get off ebay or stores for both even amazon 

    look for aluminium based for excessive sweating control .. i have tried and tested these two. 😀😀 

    Vichy Anti-Perspirant Cream 7 days effectiveness contains a new generation active ingredient : the refined anti-perspirant. It is twice as small as classical active ingredients, for a direct targeted action in the heart of sudoral pores.

    Results : 7 days of effectiveness. The armpits stay fresh and dry. The perspiration level decreases and is maintained to a lower level, week after week.

    Driclor antiperspirant roll on ...

    If you experience heavy sweating even in regular situations, you may need Driclor™, a clinically proven, highly effective antiperspirant.

    Driclor™ is the ultimate protection for heavy perspiration.


    Always dry the affected areas thoroughly before applying, otherwise irritation may occur.

    Initially apply once daily, last thing at night.

    In the morning – wash off and continue to use your regular deodorant, as normal.

    After 1–2 weeks, you should notice a considerable improvement.

    Once sweating stops during the day, you can reduce application to twice a week or less.


    Alcohol, Aluminium, Chloride, Aqua

    Alcohol-free, fragrance-free.

      Hi Jay and all you ladies out there,boy am I glad I missed this one your talking about,I'd heard of it .Jay done her homework again,don't ask dr first ,ask Jay.  Saves the Drs runaround.

          Weird how hormones do this to some females and not others.

         I've never been a sweating person wonder if that's why I've been okay?

        What sad  news of Robbie Williams,depression  see money for treatments  didn't save him.wonder what meds Drs had him on over the years ?,he must have been in a terrible way to do this.truly sad ,one of my favourites,God rest his soul.

      Hi Jay I stand corrected,yes Robin,use to watch Mork and Mindy,films of his I enjoyed Good Morning Vietnam,could watch that again and again,and he was one of the best comedians to come out of the U S A,

         Yes this hormonal problem is a strange one some of the ladies get,yes I agree it's one that's got overlooked,good one to have been brought up.

         Like all the other Gyne probs you get different threads on,it's an endless topic to us  young and older ones.

         Dotties Birthday today everyone,hope she enjoying it.

    I had and still do the same problem. I found Rexona Cream Extra Strength and it works. My boss told me and I was devastated. But all happened around the same time. A little weight gain, aching joints, hot flushes - just your normal joy joy joy!  The way I look at all of this is - still living, still have my family and still functioning!  smile
