The stick stuff definately smells "manly", and I don't think they make an unscented version, so I'd avoid it if I were you.  =)  The stuff I use is actually toothpaste-like in texture, you twist a knob at the bottom of the container and it squirts a bit of it up through a mesh at the top, which you then apply.  It's still an organic aluminum material, though. (aluminum chlorohydrex, which is basically chlorinated proplyene glycol complexed with aluminum somehow)

So we're still going to get Alzheimer's from it, but maybe not breast cancer if I'm willing to go around smelling like a guy.

the uber-sweaty forehead syndrome is actually a very common inherited trait.  I would be willing to bet that your grandmother on your father's side has/had the same problem.  Don't ask me how that works out genetically (and genetics is kinda my thing) but I've actually heard of several insances where it is true so I don't think its just a cooincidence.  Bad news, from what I have heard all you can do about it is carry a hanky with you.  Sorry.  Can anyone else figure out a scheme where a trait would only show up in a paternal grandmother???  If its sex linked it shouln't be paternal, i dunno, I'm rackin my brain on this one now.  rrrrrr

Man, no one's made a shot at my genetics question yet!  This has been driving me nuts for 2 days now!!!!  Oh well, maybe I'll ask around at work tomorrow.

Cut me some slack I'm new around here!

hello

i've been reading this thread with interest. i am 19 years old and i have a problem with sweating. It started when i was about 14 years old. I usually sweat excessively under my arms. Its usually when i go out and meet people or when i go to work. I become conscious that im sweating there and seem to sweat even more though.

I do sweat really easily in general. I consider myself a reasonably healthy active guy but i break a sweat as soon as i start excercising, im not out of breath or even tired, but my forehead and body get really bad.

Im not sure if this is the latter stages of puberty of something. Im baffled a bit, and its embarrising to be sweating when im at work etc.

The only thing i can think of besides this is that my weight may be slightly over what it should be. Im not obese, far from, but i would consider myself to be a little over weight.

Im a clean person, i've tried many deoderants, all to no help.

Has anyone got any light on the subject

Many Thanks
