    If there really is no option, you could deodorant your clothing, there's the soap you put into the washing machine to make your clothes smell nice. Also take a shower every morning and try not to sweat.

    You don't need deodorant to smell nice, in fact, I think I smell better without it. I just put a little on my armpit and belly.

    I've found a washing powder after a few years that doesn't irritate my skin, I don't think I'll be messing around with that.

    And yeah, I do shower every day multiple times - I don't think people avoid me, it's probably a case of me being more self-conscious of it than anyone else.

    'Try not to sweat' - apart from avoiding exhaustive exercise, it's a natural reaction, how can you really stop it?

    Plain talcum powder does not irritate the skin, but like you say, it doesn't actually help the smell unfortunately.

    I meant, just try not to sweat excessively. If you have a real sweating problem, there is meds for it, can't remember the name but definetely google it. See your GP, and explain the situation.

    Ah right, I see. No, no excessive sweat; like I say, I think I'm more conscious about it than anyone else.

    I said I don't have a problem where I sweat excessively - why would I get meds for that? :confused:

    Sweat is justa bit of salt... anything else that comes along for the ride is courtesy of your diet... so I would definitely start here.

    If you wash everyday just use water, If you dry your skin using soap everyday you will smell nicer for an hour or so before your sweat glands overcompensate for the dryness for the rest of the day...

    If you really need a placebo effect for your worries try these guys:
