I have hyperhydrosis (abnomally sweaty pits) and this changed my life.
To stop the issue with the shower, buy a fan. I was exactly the same coming out the shower, so I'd get out the shower, dry, then sit in front of a fan for 15 minutes and the sweat would disappear. Also, when you start feeling like you're gonna sweat, run your wrists under a cold tap for a while. It calms you down and reduces the risk of a sweat outbreak.
If Oxybutynin doesn't work, have you ever tried Sweat Block wipes? They're from Amazon and they're incredible. I had mild sweat issues when I was on heroin and I worked in an office, so it was kind of awkward. I tried these and they worked perfectly. They literally stopped the sweat in the area you wanted. You can also buy deodorant and other products from them and they work amazingly.
If you want a more drastic option, Botox in the problem area completely stops sweating.
My god, Farty Mcgee is right! This could be a game changer, I found these on amazon that sound promising, or they'll give you cancer immediately.
SweatBlock Antiperspirant - Clinical Strength - Reduce Sweat up to 7-days per Use [link]
I’ve suffered with Hyperhidrosis for years and my main problem area is my face. My arm pits hardly sweat, but my face will pour with sweat even just standing around doing nothing. I’ve found two things that have worked. The first thing I tried was SweatBlock Antiperspirant from Amazon. It’s a wipe and it helped control my facial sweating for up to a week at a time! I didn’t want to risk it irritating my face before my wedding (although it never caused irritation before) so I tried the medication Glycopyrrolate and it worked the majority of the time, but I did still experience some sweating, just nothing to the degree I was before! I would give either of those a shot. I know for me, I start experiencing anxiety when I notice my face dripping and that only leads to me sweating more, so I practice taking deep breaths while sitting to calm my anxiety to prevent even more sweating. Hyperhidrosis is embarrassing (do people really need to point out I’m sweating inside in the AC?) but know you’re not alone!
I have a bad underarm sweating problem that happens pretty much no matter what I’m doing. I found this product a few years back called Sweat Block on amazon and it has been a game changer. It’s like a moist towelette that you apply before bed and it last a good week or two before you have to reapply. I would give it a try as when I use it I don’t sweat at all anymore.
Here is the link for it.
Jesus. Go buy some sweat blocker! Like this shit [link] and rub it on your hands!
Idk how to get rid of sweat stains but try these
Just rub them anywhere that you sweat and it will clog the sweat glands for like a week
Hello fellow sweaters!!! This post is much old but I searched hyperhidrosis in AB just to see if there are any other sweaters out there, and this was the only post that came up so I just wanted to jump in the conversation. I've also been struggling with it my whole life (mostly face, hands, and feet), tried most every product/medication besides surgery/botox, though none of it worked at all. Eventually I just accepted it and learned to live with it and be sweaty and still happy. However over this past summer I found this thing on Amazon called Sweat Block ([link]) which was very interesting because it worked on my face! (But not my hands because I don't think there is a single force in this world that could stop my hands from producing sweat.) It works for 4-7 days per application so it's a temporary solution for when there's some important thing you don't wanna be sweaty at. It did dry out my face however so I had to change up my skincare routine during that time which was very very interesting... and different. If anyone also with hyperhidrosis out there reads this, best of luck to you!
For those heavy sweaters out there, I use Sweatblock during the summer and it helps TREMENDOUSLY. It stings at first when you use it because it closes your pores, but I would much rather have 20 minutes of sting than everyone in the office wondering why I spill water under my arms every day.
I am not a Dr but I also have Horner's Syndrome. Like your mom I have a bunch of other health issues and as a result am pretty much house bound. I am not aware of any treatment for Horner's. I have drops for the eye that is dry, moisturizers and face scrub for the dry side and while I have not discussed it with my drs I recently found a product that I have found very helpful for the excess perspiration. Because her health issues are different than mine she may wish to consult her Dr before trying this. It's a box of wetwipes, you gently pat the perspiring area with one once a week, before bed. I have only used the first wipe in the box, today is the end of.the first week and it's the first sign of heavy perspiration since the application last Monday night, so far I have found it is helping with the excessive sweating. The redness is also reduced noticeably so I wonder if the redness is caused by the perspiration. There are products that are like a lotion with a green tint that is said to cancel out the illusion of red, I'm looking at trying one of these next. It's so incredibly frustrating, she needs to still be aware not to overdue any physical activity, whether it's sweeping, cooking, folding laundry. Two months ago I was hit with rhabdomyalysis when I did one housework chore too many, began to sweat excessively and next thing I knew I had strange pain and confusion. Had to have home nursing care for a month and a couple of weeks of IV fluids. So even if she tries the sweat block remind her she simply can not do too much.
Sweatblock works wonders, and the active ingredient (Aluminum Chloride) is 14% whereas Certain Anti-Dry is 12%. I initially had to apply it 2-3 times over 1.5 weeks to see the difference, but since then I only need to use it once every 2-3 weeks to maintain, and I live in a humid area of Texas. Now I can be covered in sweat at the gym or outside, but my underarms are bone-dry. Just make sure you follow the instructions and use it in the evening right after a shower and let it set in overnight before you do any physical activity.
Try Sweatblock! They really worked for me. I use them in the summertime with great success.
SweatBlock Antiperspirant - Clinical Strength - Reduce sweat up to 7-days per use (8 antiperspirant towelettes)per box [link]
I would recommend sweat block [link] its preety amazing you use it b4 bed and then it blocks sweat for 7 days. One note is for some people it does not work with one usage so do it each night till sweat is gone and see how long it last
Sweat Block, the best weapon against sweating I have ever seen.
I HATE sweating. This stuff is the bomb. Apply it once, wait five minutes, and you're good to go for about four DAYS.
I just learned about this stuff recently—it truly is great.
I also have Ts from Uniqlo that just wick the sweat away if there is any. But I think it's an older product of theirs, and not the new "Airism" stuff, which I admit I haven't tried.
Try sweat block! I've had a ton of issues with underarm sweat and this has lowered in dramatically--I'm outside all day and will barely get wet under my pits.
Hey OP, I used to sweat a lot. Mainly in my armpits though. Even if it was cold out, I was pitting. I did some research online and found a product called "SweatBlock". It's an antiperspirant that comes in the form of a wipe that you use once a week. It worked wonders under my arms and I've read reviews where people have had success on their foreheads as well. It's a little pricey, but well worth the money in my opinion. Here's the link to it on amazon. Good luck!
Hey buddy, Sweat Block will be your new best friend. It works wonders. You might have to reapply 2 or 3 times in the first 2 weeks, but once you use regularly it works like a charm. I used to be in the exact same situation as you: always sweaty armpits even in winter, ruining all my shirts with deodorant stains (which Oxi-Clean does a good job of removing!) but a year after starting with this stuff, I now only need to apply it every 2-3 weeks and I get absolutely zero underarm sweat. I can even ride my bike in the sun and show up somewhere pouring sweat, but my armpits are bone-dry.
I have mild hyperhidrosis on my face... which isn't so bad because it's (comparatively mild), but is awful for dates, job interviews, and social situations in general.
I found this on Amazon and it's been a lifesaver. You can use it on your hands and feet to plug up those sweat glands, get your confidence back, and live normally (or at least get to stop worrying about this problem).
The Amazon reviews too seem to indicate that I'm not the only one singing its praises:
I empathize - the same thing happened to me while I was taking Strattera. I stopped about 3 months ago, and I finally feel "normal" again. Then again, it's winter time.
I'm about to start Concerta and the excessive sweating worries me. I've never used these sweat wipes, but I may consider using them if I experience the sweats again.
As someone with hyperhydrosis, i cant reccomend this enough. I tried Qbrexza and this stuff works better, isnt RX, and only use 1 a week.
Not sure if you've heard of Sweat Block. It was a total game changer for me. Wish I had this stuff in high school!
Sounds like you need the help of chemistry.
I've got this ones sweatblock
I started using certain dry medicated roll on deodorant from my arch to between my toes.. it helps me a ton.
These work really well too. [link]
Sweatblockworks for me. See if it's strong enough.
Sweat block wipes are amazing. Amazon has them. Hope they help! [link]
You can try this Or you can apply heavy flow maxi-pads and stick them to the back of the forehead protector and arm pits of your shirt.
This is what you need. It's awesomeness personified.
Escolhe antitranspirantes com sais de alumínio na fórmula.
Caso não resulte, precisas de algo tipo isto.
I've tried this, and it works well for lower back and cheek sweat, however, it has the same active ingredient as certain dri and is cheaper. Sweating this much sucks!!
OP, I suffered with the exact same problem. You've basically described me perfectly.
Earlier this year it got so bad that I couldn't take it any more. I couldn't even focus at work because I'd constantly be thinking about my sweating and whether I had visible sweat patches. Plus it was so uncomfortable, and cold.
As others have said here, there are products out there that will help.
I've tried a couple of products. One is called Sweat Stop – specifically, this is the product I use. (That's a link to their UK site, but they also sell in USA and Canada.)
It's £20, which sounds a bit steep. But the important thing to note is that one bottle will last you the best part of a year. It's strong stuff, and believe me you don't need to use much!
First time I used it, I couldn't believe it. It really works! Like magic. My pits stayed dry the whole day! Whereas just the day before, I was going to the toilet every couple of hours and using the hand dryer to dry my underarms.
Going into work the first day after using that gave me such a huge confidence boost. I really can't put into words how much better you'll feel when you have to confidence to know you won't have uncomfortable sweat patches. It's been the single biggest boost to my self confidence all year, and I wish I tried it years ago. And when you put it in perspective, it has to be the best £20 I've ever spent.
Another product I've used is called Sweat Block, available on Amazon. It also works miracles, but I do prefer the Sweat Stop spray personally – it seems a bit stronger. These wipes are handy to have if you're on the road and don't want to carry the other bottle around. Do not use both at once – you will only need one or the other.
Okay, I'm finished with my lengthy sales pitch. I promise I'm not a paid shill! I just want you to know that there's a solution out there, and it really does work. For your own happiness, please give these products a try. You have nothing to lose – the £20 is worth the risk. You won't regret it. And then come back and tell me how it went :)
Good luck! I'm excited for you.
As mentioned, Certain Dri is pretty good. As is Drysol.
One problem area for me is the forehead. One solution that I have found that works quite well are SweatBlock antiperspirant towelettes. They are not intended for your face, but I use it on my forehead and it works great with no side effects and lasts for a week or more. Just don't apply it in excess or more frequently as it will irritate the skin.
There is also a website, Kleinert’s that is devoted entirely to products to address excessive sweating. They have antiperspirants, wipes, inserts, special clothing, etc. They might have something that will help as well.
