OT: Excessive sweating

I've found that for the last few years I seem to sweat quite badly from the armpits no matter how warm/cold the weather is.

Recently became more self conscious about it and now never go out in a t-shirt by itself because the obvious patches can be kinda embarrassing.


Was looking at this https://www.sweatguard.co.uk/best-antiperspirant.asp as a potential option but unsure.


Anybody else had a similar issue and what have you used to help it?

Cheers.

    Shave your arm pits.

    Drink atleast 1.5 litre of water ever day.

    Sweat is basically your body letting you know it's over heating. Therefor it releases sweat to cool you down.

    i suffer from this but its worse on 1 side bizzarrely... Ive tried various anti perspirants including doctor prescribed. I think what basically makes them more potent is the amount of aluminium contained. I tried Driclor which u put on at night and wash off in the morning but my god the skin irritation it caused was unreal so i stopped.

    But yeah man it sucks and i feel ur pain :/ . The WL stressing last year made my right pit go mental lol

    Well you should obviously try an antiperspirant since that's what it's sort of made to do. Sweating can be a side effect of many medications too.

    Though just to warn you about antiperspirant: I usually use regular deodorant, but I bought an antiperspirant by accident once five or six years ago. It definitely stops your arm pits from sweating, but I started noticing that I'd get these weird trickles of sweat running down my side on the way to work. I think that, if you block the sweat from coming out of your armpits, it's still got to go somewhere.

    Not sure how bad it is in your case but I’ve seen botox be very effective when people have had it for the same problem and medication etc. hasn’t worked.

    Not always. Sometimes it's simple lifestyle change such as better sleep,drinking more water and cutting out coffee/fizzy drinks. Not everything is serious specially when its only his arm pits and not his whole body.

    I tried that. It was a mates and he said it stops you sweating. You've got to let it dry, otherwise it gets irritating. If you let it dry then it's absolutely fine.

    Yes , Lifestyle change is good . My own experience with Thyroid issues was always staying up till odd hours and being fine , High Metabolism , high blood pressure / heart rate . When my wife and I were dating she took notice of things and told me to see a doctor where I got some blood work and now I am controlled with medications . Seeing a physician would be my first suggestion to @Andy99TradeZ

    When I was 16 years old I had the same problem. My mom (yes my mom) bought me a product called ‘axitrans’ at the local pharmacy. It stings a bit when I applied it, but it helped me so much!! Apply it before bedtime, let it dry and the morning after wash your armpits and use a deodorant. Hope this helps.

    Women always notice stuff you need to get fixed! Like not eating crisps all day and occasionally eating a vegetable.

    See I'm 18 so I guess similar, got any idea whether it was a certain ingredient in the product that was what helped?

    Thanks everyone else so far

    Sounds toxic. Your diet might need to include more antioxidants. More water and less soft drinks. More lettuce and veggies and less fried frenchy fries.

    I recomend you NOT to use a product that blocks you from sweating. Sweating is a natural organism response. You should see a doctor. None from this forum or internet can help you. Its nothing to be scared about.

    I went to the doctor once years ago and he took my blood pressure and looked at me and said "Did you . . . . run here?" I had not. Now I don't go to the doctor no more.

    Yeah go the doctor. It might be a minor thing but they will likely be able to solve your problem whatever it is.
