FYI to men: TRIM YOUR PITS BEFORE. I had an angry nurse who dry shaved the heck out of my skin. Large investment but well worth it. I used all types of antiperspirants and shirt pads, nothing worked. . Since surgery (2 weeks ago) I've had no sweat AT ALL. I was really sore first night/ 48hrs. Then I was fine. still slightly swollen and sensitive (11 days later).
