Question: Constant sweating everywhere

 Caprice12 - Fri Mar 05, 2010 5:24 pm

Hello, for about three years now I have been sweating constantly all over my body. It is usually only on my armpits and face where it is particularly bad but I am really sick of it. It makes it hard to go out anywhere. Even when I am sat down in the middle of winter I still sweat. It is worse in summer, but my armpits never stop sweating at all, even when I am in a t-shirt in winter. Please help, I need something done to stop it before summer!

User avatar Hello,Axillary sweating is essentially a problem of adolescence.It can be phasic or continuous.This can be associated with sweating of palms and soles.Emotions can precipitate the sweating.
While anticholinergic drugs like probanthine help the lead to side effects because they block secretions elsewhere too.
External treatment containing aluminium as antiperspirants do help.Severe cases need botox,and there is a surgical option too known by name sympathectomy.
You should do well with antiperspirants.
Best wishes.
