    Yea I have almost the same issue, I sweat a lot at school and work mostly (but this is while wearing a t-shirt, dress shirt, and sweater on top usually) and still haven't figured out a way to stop it. I shave my underarms as well and I'll check out some of the stuff in this thread; it's not gotten so bad that it's a major problem but it's just annoying.

    This stuff is pretty expensive, but it works wonders for me. Use it for a couple weeks and I don't sweat for quite a while afterwards. If I start sweating, I use it again. Perfect.

    This has been posted before so use the search button. But I've been using Maxim Anti-Persperant for the past year and a half or so and it works wonders. I shave my arm pits as to let it 'soak' in more and I just hate hair there. But w/o it I sweat even when I'm cold and sitting around. Using it at night before I go to bed stops the sweat for the next day. You can buy it for 13 bucks a bottle, not including shipping @ stopsweat.com. Lasts months. I'm just about to order a new one and the last time I got one was in early october.

    I seriously just moved to the northeast where its much colder to take care of my excessive sweating.

    No idea how to fix it.

    I have also had a sweating problem for most of my life. I used to fold up paper towels under my arms inside my shirts for important situations like job interviews. It worked of course but I couldn't really move my arms much. I am not talking small pit stains...I used to sweat all the way down to my belt. Very gross. After years of yellow pitted t shirts and trying every AP I made the mistake of buying plain deoderant...no plugged pores and no alum. The next day I was dry like never before. Can one sweat more using AP? My experience is yes. That was several years ago and I haven't used AP since and never sweat through my shirt now.
    I have to say, this might be worth a shot. A few months ago I switched to Toms of Maine deodorant, and it seemed to take my body a bit to adjust, but now I feel drier than normal. However, correlation does not equal causation and in my case it's probably more likely due to the cooler weather now. But, it might be worth trying.

    Go see your doctor and get a prescription for Drysol, it has really made my life a hell of a lot easier. - Mike

    I have to back this up 100%. My wife, who is a family practice physician, had not heard of Drysol. I found it through seaching everywhere on the Internet for a cure for underarm sweating that would sometimes even sweat through my jacket.

    Drysol did what no other product could do. Period.

    Word of warning. The instructions say to put just a little on at night. If you have my problem you'll ignore it and put "the usual amount" on. Brother, let me tell you, the stuff burns when you first start to use it if you apply liberally.

    Ask your doctor for it by name, follow the directions, and you should stop sweating under your arms for at least one week at first. The next application will allow you to go two or three weeks without sweating.

    Today I haven't needed to use Drysol in about 2 years.

    My mom has issues with night sweats and her doctor said that Effexor (an antidepressant) has been approved for this problem. You might do some research or ask your doctor about that.

    When you sweat, it means that there is usually an amount of heat that your body can't handle and is trying to find ways to cool it down, right?

    I've also looked into that surgery for hyperhydrolisis. The one where they pinch or severe a nerve ending in your near your spine or something similar to that.
    Just out of curiosity wouldn't that mean your body would find other places to sweat from?

    Go see a doctor, maybe they'll suggest something like laser treatment to kill your follicles to permanently keep your armpits from crying stinky tears.

    Perspiration has no odour. When bacteria begins to grow, that's where the odour comes in.

    From my biology teacher, I would reccomend against the use of aluminum based materials (deodorants, anti-perspirant, and so on). He's read a great deal of articles that show a direct correlation between aluminum and Alzheimer's.

    That has been proven untrue.
