Is it bad for you? a few days ago I made a post complaining about the bo from my armpits.2 days ago I picked up a bottle of hand sanitizer and said what the hell. Not only did it get rid of the stench of working for an hour in the sun sweating like a dog. But I worked 3 hours in the sun after wards. Slept/walked around continuing to sweat for several hours later. Still worked.Took 2 showers that same day that I sweat and worked in the sun for hours, it didn't wear off. Today I danced (with breaks of course) for 2 hours. vigorous morris dancing of course I sweat shit loads, and around 10PM it wore off only slightly. and unless my nose was more or less directly in it, I couldn't even smell the slight bit.So the hand sanitizer made me smell not just better, but good and clean. For 2 days. and might still be working tomorrow. And on top of that, it doesn't stop me from sweating allowing me to sweat and get rid of water weight, and salt etc that sweat gets rid of. And on top of that, with the sanitizer, my sweat actually smells good.All the anti prosprans(sp?) and deodorants only worked for a couple of hours, until I sweat, and no the anti prosprans did not keep me from sweating, and probably can't when the base temp in the day is rarely under 103.So is the stuff safe to use, because it's great. at least for me
I finally found something that works, but.
It works because the smell isn't caused by the sweat directly, but as a result of bacteria feeding on the sweat. The hand sanitiser is killing the bacteria.Armpits are a bit more sensitive than hands, but if you don't get a rash it's probably fine.
The smell is actually the tiny organisms taking lil tiny dumps AFTER they feed, with big time smell.
LOL, yeah, People don't stink, all their little bugs do though!!!

Yeah, thatnks to all that bacteria...U STINK, MAN!LOL, all joking aside, everything that stinks around you is caused by bacteria or a fungus. Food left too long in the fridge, your pits, etc. There are so many little critters living inside your gut, it's why shit smells, well, like shit, but without them, you couldn't digest your food. It is said that if you have an upset stomach you should eat yogurt. Yogurt is made from milk with bacteria living in it. These extra bacteria will help replenish your own supply. Most of the bacteria living inside you are beneficial, it's only when curtain strains of bacteria get in you that it can cause problems. For example, ever hear of E. coli food poisoning? You actually have E. coli inside you and it's healthy. The bad strains of E. coli make you sick. Always eat food that is thorouughly cooked and not left out in room temperature for a long time. The danger range is 40 to 160 degrees F.The hand sanitizer is a good idea as long as your armpit skin doesn't form a rash. There are bacteria everywhere and in everything, so it's a good idea to wash your hands several times a day.
