I have gone through many trials and tribulations with trying to lighten my armpits and all the issues that happened with that.
Now I have gone and TOTALLY f*^%$# up my armpits with this new antiperspirant.
Not only do I have ugly dark underarms, I also perspire a lot. As a result I have to use those clinical strength antiperspirants.
It gets EVEN better. I have sensitive skin and for some reason when I use a product for a while it no longer works, so I have to use something different.
I have normally been using Dove and Secret and they have been working well. The two that I have were about to run out so I decided to try out this new antiperspirant that I had just gotten.
I should have stuck with what I know.
I used it one day to go to work and noticed that
1. It did not keep me as dry as the others and
2. My armpits felt a little bit itchy.
By the time I got home from work my armpits were VERY itchy so I took a shower. I noticed some little bumps under my arm so I went to sleep without putting anything on. Of course the next day I had to go to work so I squeezed a little bit of Dove out and went to work.
This is what my pits look like three days later.Not sure if you can see the bumps....but they are there and they itch and burn.
As soon as I got home I took a shower again to give my pits some time to recover. I have been through this before and the only thing that works is to not wear anything while I am at home because I can sweat as much as I want and there is no one to notice.
Looks like I am in for a week of peeling and itching and burning. I guess it is time to stock up on Dove and Secret so I can avoid this happening again.
