Axiron is a liquid solution (not a gel) that is applied to the underarm. It is much like antiperspirant, except that it is entirely liquid and has the tendency to "drip" (no different than just plain water).
In the instructions, it says something like this:
If the solution drips, try to "scoop up" the excess dripping with the applicator and re-apply the solution to the underarm. Do NOT scoop up the excess dripping with your fingertips to try to apply the excess with your fingers.
I am curious about that. Why would it be "bad" to scoop up and apply the excess dripping directly with your fingertips?
