Got hyperhydrosis of the armpits and have been using driclor which is stopping most of it.

Seen this new thing called Odaban which apprently doesnt sting at night wen u put it on. Wondering if anyones ever used it. Does it work?

I am 32 years old and had a MAJOR problem with underarm sweat. About 2 years ago I ordered Odaban through the internet. I received it and applied it. No joke, it works great!!! I am simply a "Sweater"
I also recommended to my brother and it works great for him as well.

As a note: Do exactly as the directions tell you. Do not overapply. It WILL WORK! Give it about a week or two and the sweating will completely stop. Now I only have to apply it about once every other month and my sweating is completely gone. I feel so much better.

I have never tried driclor, so I can't compare it to that. But... my under arm sweating was really bad and now it is perfectly fine.

I am still looking for a non-surgical remedy for my sweaty palms and feet though. It does not seem to work for that.

I hope this helps!

well I have it and I cant say it works cos you know as for me I sweat only when Im worried ,all the other time palms are dry , and its hard for me to say if it works ,but I know if Im really worried they still sweat (not too heavily but still) thats not good enough cos if I want to touch someone I automatically start worrying thinking that they might become wet heh+)

Also Driclor will stop working after a certain time (maybe 1 or 2 years), I don't think odaban does this.
yeh it mightnt sting but i may give u allergic reactions like red bumps and s*it, like it did to me!

I have used both Odaban and Driclor. I used Odaban first, many years ago when I was a teenager. Then about 4 years ago I bought Driclor as I couldn't find any Odaban.
After using both, I found that they were pretty much the same, so much so I thought that they had just changed names.
I know what you mean about the stinging but I think when I read the instructions it said not to put too much on. You only need a small amount. They were both roll-ons and I would simply roll it on my armpits and then get some tissue and pat it dry to get the excess off. It would either sting very slightly or the skin would become slightly irritated but nothing too painful. Sometimes I would wet the area afterwards to cool it down. You can also roll some on the tissue and dab it on your armpits.
I found both to be very effective.

i tried odaban for about a week and it wasnt working, so i stopped. i honestly think i should of used it for longer but it does require patients. and im one of those that mostly sweats around people. (WHAT IS UP WITH THAT!)

anyway i think im gonna give it another try and hope it works. wish me luck.

Remember with Odaban, sometimes less is more. For some reason if you apply an excessive amount you have less success.

Have no doubt in Odaban ! It is working like a magic ! After years and years of sweating and feeling soo bad about it, after research on the net, I finaly found something I can swear in ! It is affordable and to knock on the wood I hope they are not gonna jack the price up,cause they can-this is tha thing ! If you are feeling bad-STOP !!! Go buy it - you got nothing to loose and lot to gain ! Feel free to email me if you have questions !

Results seem mixed, as with any treatment...However I have had a level of success with Odaban as well as Maxim.

I tried Odaban since other products were too irritating for my skin, and it works, but only for a certain period, since my skin became irritated with this product too. However, for persons who are not as sensitive as me, I stongly recommend this product. Also the price is reasonnable.
