So I went to see a pr0fessional about my dark armpits and she told me that before they could do anything about the color they had to deal with the excessive sweating, also called hyperhydrosis.
She gave me a regimen that I am supposed to follow for the next month and then come back to see her and I really hope that this helps.
The first thing I am supposed to do is to use Certain Dri antiperspirant at night to shrink my pores and stop the sweating.
The next thing I am supposed to do is to apply Zeasorb powder over my regular antiperspirant during the day.
So far I have not noticed any change but after reading the reviews I saw that some people said it took about three weeks of continuous use for the sweating to be reduced. Some others said they never saw a change in the sweating. Still others said that the Certain Dri gave them a rash or something.
I have noticed that it does feel strong so I am going to use it every other night because it does tend to irritate my armpits.
The Zeasorb powder is also not being used every day because it causes me to itch....I read that it was made for athletes foot!!!! What, does the doctor think I have athletes foot under my arms?
