Certain DRI made my armpits itchy and red but it worked great. I was wondering it there is another product that worked just as well.
There is a complex set of instructions for application and a list of things you should tell your doctor before he prescribes it. You did read the instructions for use didn't you? https://www.drugs.com/cdi/certain-dri-solution.html
The active ingredient is Aluminum chloride hexahydrate and the product is to treat severe excessive sweating problems; a condition called hyperhydrosis. It is not a deodorant; it is a potent anti-perspirant.
https://www.drugs.com/condition/hyperhidrosis.html The link to this site lists alternative treatments but says to see your doctor for professional advice. Furthermore:
"Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:
if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances
Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Certain Dri solution. However, no specific interactions with Certain Dri solution are known at this time."
I don't know your gender or location but:
"Do not apply to broken, irritated, or recently shaved skin." Armpits?
"For underarms - To minimize irritation, let the alcohol evaporate (if needed, blow dry with a hair dryer on a cold air setting), leaving an evenly distributed film of medicine on the skin. Wear a T-shirt while sleeping to prevent the medicine from being rubbed off on bed linens."
"Repeat use of Certain Dri solution for 2 or 3 nights until the desired lack of sweating is achieved. After that, usually once or twice a week should maintain the desired effect."
I hope something there was helpful.
