Better But With Side Effects

I've been using this for 3 days now as directed by another user on this site (wetting underams and then patting baking soda on it) and it's been very effective as an alternative to anti-perspirant. The only downside was that it stung like crazy when I applied it which continued for about an hour afterwards, this morning I was shocked to see that my underarms were totally raw and scabs had started to form! What I think must have happed is that the baking soda crystals chaffed at the skin on my underams, which is quite sensivie. Anyway I really want this stuff to work, it's so much better than store-bought antiperspirant, so I'm going to try dissolving some in water and then applying it. Hopefully I'll get the same results without the raw skin (ouch).
