I had this really bad as a teenager up until my mid-twenties. I used to bring two undershirts with me everywhere I went and at one point I decided to start pinning washcloths to my shirts by my armpits. My dermatologist had me on this prescription antiperspirant, zinc oxide I think. It didn't help at all. I had to endure the discomfort and embarrassment until I was about 23 or 24 when it inexplicably stopped. Now it's like I don't sweat at all unless it's extremely humid.

I still have nightmares of people touching or hugging me and recoiling in disgust when they realize my shirt is soaked.

i do not! in fact it got worse when i like cut coffee out of my regular diet because of heartburn. it may be because i moved back to NYC. the humidity, constant walking, and extreme changes in temperature of environment (apartment -> streets -> fucking subway -> office)

oh i'm so jealous. its gotten worse around age 24/25. but yeah i love having to give people a disclaimer before they touch me. a few months ago, an aunt recoiled after i gave a disclaimer and she still hugged.

yeah i'm curious about the pills cuz prescription antiperspirant sounds like a joke. he said if the pills do not work that we could consider botox in certain areas which sounds insane.

i have this really bad. pits, arms and feet. dermatologist gave me some prescription grade antiperspirant that works on the pits, but it's basically liquid aluminum and burns really bad and you have to keep up on it, which i sucked at.

been curious about this stuff for my hands, because having to shake hands with anyone is always embarrassing:

I might try this out; I get sweaty hands when I am writing tests and stuff like that and sometimes I start smearing the ink all over and it sucks.

I've also thought about doing a DIY Iontophoresis Device:

Me, my mom and sis all have this. Sis and mom have it primarily in their arm pits and had Botox injections about ten years ago. They say that it's drastically reduced the amount of secretions and has saved them a lot of embarrassment. I have it in my hands, which is frustrating because I'm training to be an RN and have actually failed lab exams because I've torn sterile gloves right in half trying to put them on. I looked into the Botox but it's not feasible because it requires 25+ injections (!) and carries a not-insignificant risk of nerve damage. This person did it anyway and said it was pretty painful but effective.

FWIW, I've been told that beta blockers can be effective in treating anxiety-induced hyperhidrosis; I took Propranolol briefly and had mixed results. Talcum powder works pretty well for brief periods (I understand that they used to apply it to all sterile gloves to facilitate the gloving process, but stopped after they discovered it stimulated the formation of granulation tissue and would sometimes cause post-op intestinal obstructions).

my pits and hands and feet are fine, but the back of my head sweats quite a bit under very slight exertion, like walking briskly. anything more than that and the sweat drips off my hair in the back.

it sucks.

i have this problem as well - even with the most minimal of exertion, it's like someone turned on a water tap full-blast in my head (which is where most of it comes from).

actually, doesn't have to even be physical exertion; any more, if I get even the slightest bit stressed out or nervous,


it really is crimping my life anymore. job interviews? fucking hell. going to the barber? i'm mortified.

I'm at an anti aggression training day where I have to grab and be grabbed by other people. This is like the nightmare because I get anxious about being gross and sweaty and that makes me sweat more.

I used to have sweaty palms, so much so that I was self-conscious about shaking people's hands. (If I found myself in a situation where I had to do it, I would reflexively [and discreetly] wipe my hand against my pants before extending it to the other person.) It stopped being a problem once I hit my 20's.

This is my life. I have to buy shirts with patterns that don’t give away my pit sweat. It sucks. I work at a laid back office now but I can’t even take advantage by wearing T-shirts.

Damn I was gonna ask if anyone has any tips for getting stains out of their shirts. I basically buy new tshirts and can wear them once.

I'll get salt stains on my suit jacket armpits after being in court.

The sweating is definitely better at 41 than when I was a teenager/early 20s, but it's still a thing. My feet particularly are bad, pits, then hands probably.

I might actually look at botox for the armpits.
