Do you often race home, just to get out of your wet, soggy
shirt/blouse? Have you ever kept your arms tight at your side, because
you were self-conscious that someone could smell or see that you were
sweating too much?
If you answer yes to any of these questions, it could mean that you
suffer from excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis. The main trigger for
these sweating attacks tends to be anxiety, even though things such as
diet and climate can have a huge effect.
Antiperspirant deodorant has been a staple in most people hygiene
routine since their early teenage years. However, for true sufferers,
antiperspirant’s not enough to keep from sweating too much.
So what can you do?
The first thing you can do is make sure that you are buying a good
quality deodorant. Many deodorants like Dove and Suave are good
deodorants, but for excessive sweaters it can be just like having no
deodorant on at all. Some popular deodorant brands that you can try,
are Certain Dri, Kiehl’s, and Secret. Your journey to find the right
antiperspirant may lead you to try other brands. If you still can not
find any relief, you can make an appointment with your physician and
get what he/she may recommend.
Still, their is a population of excessive sweaters that deodorant and
other home remedies just do not work for. If this is the case you may
want to start looking at things you may be consuming that could be
causing an internal issue that is manifesting itself in the form of a
lot of sweat. Things, like alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods can all
contribute to Hyperhidrosis. Also, mental illnesses such as anxiety
can cause people to sweat profusely, for what seems like no reason at

sweating at work or other social events, I recommend that you try
