Spironolactone: Use with extreme caution! Most doctors are hesitant or will outright refuse to prescribe it, and for good reasons. This drug is generally used for people who have had CONGENITIVE HEART FAILURE. It is potassium sparing and a diuretic as well. Although it is an anti-androgen, it comes with high risk, black labelled and severe side effects. I ended up with a massive body rash and itching for a week. I had to go through several doctors before I finally got a YES. I did a follow-up with my GP and he refused to refill the prescription for fear of my life. Lume Deodorant: Save your $$$. It doesn't work for bromhidrosis. If anything, it will exacerbate the odour making you a real life Pepe Le Pew (skunk). Furthermore, this was not developed by a dermatologist or endocrinologist-it was a gynecologist who developed Lume-it's more geared to the genital area (although it claims you can use it for the body). Dr. Armpit: if you suffer from a hormonal imbalance due to PCOS/Fibroids which makes you more androgen prevalent, does this also affect the bacteria development/breakdown of the armpits? I know that Staphylococcus is more common in males and causes more of a stench. Would the two be connected?
