Antiperspirants
Is is dangerous to use an antiperspirant? I have heard that they can block glands under the arm and cause problems like cancer. Please let me know - thank you.

Annie, if you’re healthy, you have normal skin and adhere to accepted hygiene regimens; using antiperspirant is a good idea. It isn’t dangerous and won’t cause cancer. Good luck.
