After awhile you won't mind so much.
I can't stop sweating - Page 6
I used to have major underarm sweating issues and this stuff stopped it dead in its tracks. It can also be used for any other area of the body - hands, feet, groin, etc. You apply it at night, cover up the affected area with a shirt/sock/etc. and shower it off in the morning.
For the first 2 weeks, I applied it twice a week. Now I only have to apply it once every 4-6 weeks. Works like a charm...
I have a bottle of drysol but haven't gotten around to using it yet. I'd love to use it on my palms and feet, but I can't stand sleeping with socks on (tropical country, not common practice), and I'm pretty sure no one likes sleeping with socks on their hands..?
I'm getting desperate, I cannot figure out how to stop under arm sweat..
For the past year I've been trying everything I have ever read and i'm running out of options.
I started off by switching to all sleeveless T's ... which definitely helped, but came no-where near fixing anything.
So I started working on it, like not holding my arms closed all the time... (letting air in the area)
again not fixing..
so I started switching deodorants , from anit-persperant to not (trying to not have the "weak dam" effect (a sudden wash) ) gels to pastes...
finally 2 months ago I started shaving under my arms (not to weird, I already shave my legs for cycling) which seems to have sort of helped but not as much as I had hoped...
after that I switched through deodorants again, landing on the 8 dollar degree deodorant (which only gives you about as much as a lip balm stick) and again, I feel like it might be helping a little... but not resolved.
So... I feel like I've gotten it down to manageable... but it is still annoying.... I mainly have a problem at dinner situations where I'm sitting still with my arms at my side.... obviously in any nervous situation.
I'm sure a lot of it is hormones, being as I'm under 21, but is there anything else I can do?
it's so weird... it's like my torso is always a different temperature... my hands/arms can be freezing.. but I can feel my torso burning up...
anyways...weird subject, thanks for replying.
Might have been mentioned already, forgive me for not taking the time to go through all the replies, but what you've tried so far is basically just trying to patch up the problem without fixing it. Unless you fix the root cause the problem will just keep resurfacing.
I know its been mentioned that you should see a doctor. There might be a medical reason for your sweating.
But I think you should explore your diet. Fatty, salty and just generally unhealthy foods can cause you to sweat a lot, and your sweat smell especially pungent. If you eat healthy for a few weeks you'll notice a lot of benefits, and maybe solve this problem too.
Good luck with everything.
Just make sure it dries before you go to bed. I apply it to my forehead and it really helps.

You don't have to use socks on your hands, it's not a requirement and it will still work without them.
I know how you feel! I've been suffering with hyperhydrosis since the age of 14. I have pretty much tried everything on the market, but i found that most products made my skin really ichy and dry. The latest one I have tried is called 'AHC' which I buy off of Amazon. I have been using it now for 2 months and I'm so pleased with it. My armpits are pretty much dry & I can get on the tube without feeling like i need to hide away!
Give it a go! :)
I know how you feel.I did have that condition and it s called hyperhidrosis. I had it very bad that it really stopped me from socializing. I was very conscious and always had to wear a dark colour jacket no matter what the wheather.Like Bubble bath menioned about AHC,about a year ago a friend of mine introduced me to AHC20 that you can find in the scrubsuk.com website and it has been doing wonders to my condition by helping me to control it. I still have to keep my under arm shaved and clean and all of that.
Hope this helps.
