    Are you allergic to baby powder? That might work.

    Talcum powder Strongly advised against by my doctor using any powder bases. I Spend about 10 mins a week in the presence of most of my clients, collecting security tapes to review that sort of thing. That is one of the reasons I find this so annoying - most of my work is solo.

    This sounds weird, but I saw on some danish forum someone suggested washing the armpits with intimate hygiene soap, let it stay there for about 10 minutes before rinsing it. Apparently that worked for someone, might be worth a try?

    I said that already. But thelassa said that soap doesn't work.

    I said that even antibacterial soap only kills 99.9% of bacteria. Depending on the specific species of bacteria, a population can double in size in 2-4 hours in good conditions (good conditions being damp and warm, which is just about every armpit, ever).

    It's not a practical solution, to shower that frequently. Plus it will dry your skin out and make sensitive skin more sensitive.

    Plus, triclosan is bad. (hopefully a problem going away soon--not sure what the status of triclosan is in the UK, but its still in a huge number of products in the US)

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I have a medical certificate for my boss basically stating that due to my allergies my choices in 'Personal hygiene' extras were very limited. Just wanting to know if there was anything extra I could do. The doctor BTW thinks my hygiene regime is 'better than average'.
    My son actually uses women's deodorant because men's tends to give him a rash. You could try that perhaps?

    I don't have an answer to what kind of deodorant (or, 'odorant' as my hubby likes to call it) to use. I'm in a similar boat, myself. I can't use gel based deodorants because it gives me a rash. Other deodorants don't last long, if they even work in the first place. Now, I didn't really have many issues with this until I changed my diet, last year. It changed my body chemistry which resulted in me having to look for new things. (there's a thread any that floating around here somewhere).
    I'm wondering if you're experiencing a similar problem. Did you make dietary changes a few months leading up to this becoming an issue for you?

    Re: BO problems

    Trying to respond to A few things here
    1) Tried women's deoderent - it's the base that I'm allergic to
    2) no dietary changes in 3 years.
    3) only significant change was sinus surgery last year to help me breathe better. not going back on that - my health has improved immensely
    The rock seems to be working. but when I had 3 days off I forgot to put it on for 2 days and got a rash - wondering if that was because of the changes the rock causes - but that - so far - is dealable with.

    Found a homemade deodorant recipe in an ancient thread.
