I had this too and it was a bit unsettling. Fortunately it only lasted a few days. In e interim, I carried a small deodorant in my purse and applied it a couple of times during the day. That seemed to help as opposed to just first thing in the morning.
I used clinical strength too, so hopefully that will work!!
