What is your question?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
What is the best feminine deodorant or powder to use for excessive sweating? I also get boils on the panty line so I'd have to have something that doesn't clog pores... what should I use?
Expert:  Nurse Annie replied 9 years ago.

Vagisil makes a feminine powder with baking soda that I would recommend. This would be best rather than using any type of deoderant spray. Also make sure you wear cotton underwear, rather than anything made out of any other type of material as this absorbs perspiration and keeps it away from the body.

Would Monistat soothing care medicated powder (it says helps minor skin irritations so I thought maybe it'd help boils) or Vaisil's powder be better? I want to be very sure whichever one I use doesn't clog pores. Thank you very much i've been searching about each and haven't found anything that says they dont clog pores

If it has baking soda or cornstarch, then this would be best. None of these would clog your pores at all.
