Stops sweating overnight
Can cause very dry and therefore itchy skin.
When i 1st started using driclor it was a last ditch effort. Even in 'normal' room temperatures, i would have massive sweat patches for no apparent reason. I had tried all sorts of deodrants and antiperspirants. the best being sure for men antiperspirant, but even that had little or no effect at times.
After the first few applications (id say 2 or 3) i had no sweating at all. Not even wearing a leather jacket at a full day in maddam tausauds in London, my armpits were dry as a bone. However after about a week my arm pits became very itchy, even in the day after washing it off in the morning, and i think this was down to the dryness of the skin as moisturising seemed to help alot. Now i am down to around one application every 2 weeks or so with minimal itching if any, only after application. I have very sensitive skin and so i was expecting this when i initially bought Driclor. (after reading the packet)
I think the benefits of feeling confident again far outweighs the side effects. even on nights out, which used to be a big problem, my forehead may sweating slightly, or playing sport i may be sweating all over but my armpits arn't even damp. such a relief!
Another thing i will say is slowly build up, dont use every day for a month as this is too much. apply a few times when you first get it for a few nights, and then drop back to twice a week and go from there. my advice is, if you have sensitive skin, use with caution, just try it and see. otherwise, go wild and never sweat under your arms again!
