    Clinical strength antiperspirants

    Hey Sprawling! I got too much spam on those forums so added a tough registration question/answer (think it might be confusing people). Google also started penalizing non-doctor/hospital owned health site rankings. They want to just send people to surgery without exploring other options :-(
