    I am a bigger lady and I have a specific deodorant stick to put on my thighs in the summer so they prevent chaffing while walking especially when in a them park or water park. Works better if it’s a powdered solid insted of clearstick or gel. I prefer the native brand myself😊

        I’m going to try this the next time I get a fever blister. I usually apply tea tree oil to them as soon as I feel it coming on and it stops them in their tracks.

        I use separate deodorant on my feet when I don’t want to wear socks with my shoes. I also apply some to the inside of my shoes before I slip my feet into them. It really works!!

        Like Diana commented, I too will use deodorant underneath my girls when needed. I take it a step further and apply the deodorant completely around my bra line. If I’ll be outside for a long period of time, working outside, working out, etc. I will also apply deodorant on the places where I perspire, like down my spine, the back of my neck (I have long curly hair), where my panties hit & around my waistline where my shorts or pants hit. I too will apply it between my thighs like Jennifer commented. I have been blessed with my family’s thunder thighs.

        Thank you for these ideas. I appreciate you.
