    I'd have to start using body powder to absorb perspiration. I've read that talc is bad for my lungs. I'd read about using cornstarch, but I also read that this clumps.

    Anyone have recommendations for body powder or an alternative method?

    I was reading about Caldesene corn starch powder. It's for adults and also a baby powder so it must be mild. I know cornstarch powders are good because I found those to be the best for my kids diaper rash years ago. There really keep moisture out and are very smooth. The reviews I read online are good and mention uses for adults as well as children.

    I haven't used Caldesene but it might work. GB66

    Aveeno and plenty of the other powders do not contain talc. You just need to read the bottles.

    I've been using cornstarch for awhile. If you get the baby one that has aloe in it, it's superfine and doesn't clump. However, it doesn't do a great job at deodorizing and will wear off after a few hours. I think the plain regular cornstarch is better, but it gets all over the place. It doesn't really clump, it's just it doesn't stay put.
