  1. Why am I sweating everyday even when I clean myself?
    Alright, so I sweat almost everyday. No matter what deodorant I use, I still sweat, and I take a shower every night. It’s really embarrassing when I notice I sweat because then soon I get this odor. :-( Does anyone know why this is happening or what else I can do?

    • Excessive sweating is a terrible vicious cycle. You sweat a little which makes you embarrassed, anxious and tense. Your tension and anxiety then makes you sweat a little more… And so the cycle continues until your clothes are saturated.

      Now, think about a time when you didn’t sweat so much. Chances are you were in a relaxed state of mind. You were probably alone or with a loved one, away from the social anxiety that your sweating causes. At these times it didn’t matter whether you sweated or not. Who would care?

      So it is logical to say that the most powerful strategy for how to stop sweating is simply to not care.

      When you first start to apply control strategies to manage your excessive sweating it is important to become sensitive to things that reduce your sweating and things that exacerbate your condition.

      Important examples are the clothes you wear and antiperspirant products that you apply. You should always experiment to find what works best for you but here are a few tips to get you started:

      Choose clothes made from breathable natural fibres. Avoid wearing man-made materials such as nylon directly next to your skin.
      Pick clothes in styles that are most comfortable for you. Ignore all advice about what you should wear – just pick items from your wardrobe that work best for you personally.
      Choose a good antiperspirant product. Make sure the label says antiperspirant – and not just deodorant. Experiment with different brands and see if any improve your condition.
      Try wearing dress shields. In the short term, choose disposable ones and carry a few spares with you.

  2. How do i stop sweating on my hands so much!!!?
    I have a bf and we cant even hold hands because of the sweat! It gets gross and all wet and ugh!! I am tired of it so how do i gte rid of it! Help!!!

    • Sweating is a part of a person’s natural body mechanisms and is a way for the body to regulate its internal temperature. There are many ways to control sweating and we have discussed only a few methods in this article. The nerves that control sweating depend upon a chemical transmitter called acetylcholine which is a molecule produced at the very ends of the nerve fibres. Individuals troubled by excessive sweating often do not respond adequately to antiperspirants, and they may not respond to (or be willing to tolerate) systemic medications, electrical treatments on the areas of excessive sweating, permanent destruction of the nerves which control sweating, or surgery (in the armpits) to either scrape away the sweat glands or to cut out the areas of excessive sweating. Drugs taken by mouth, such as phenoxybenzamine and propantheline, sometimes control sweating, and injections of botulinum toxin into the affected area diminish sweating. Botox can be used to control sweating of the underarms, hands, feet, forehead, and other body areas. The most common option used to control sweating is to use an antiperspirant. Modifying your behavior and your psychological environment (at home and at work) to lessen excessive stress will help you control sweating. Meditation:This is the best way to control sweating if not cure it completely. It is hoped that as more is learnt about the systems in the body that control sweating, better ways of controlling it will be found.


      The reason why some people sweat more is not yet known, but it is known that sweating is controlled by the Sympathetic Nervous System. Get your nerves under control and you sweating will diminish. Most of the time you don’t want to stop your sweating, you want to control it from getting out of hand. TreatmentExcessive sweating can be controlled to some degree with commercial antiperspirants. It seems that gel deodorants (Mitchum/Soft & Dri) are the only productsthat will control the odor for more than one hour (not long enough). While a deodorant masks odors, an anti-perspirant actually reduce andcontrol the perspiration and sweating. Conventional antiperspirants contain ingredients like aluminum chloride and aluminum chlorohydrate to control sweating by plugging up your sweat glands. Check the label; you’d be surprised at how many people think they’re using an antiperspirant/deodorant, a product to help stop you from sweating, but are actually using only a deodorant, a product that only helps prevent odor–not control wetness. Botox, the popular injectable wrinkle remedy, also can be used to control sweating; injected into the skin, it temporarily paralyzes the sweat glands in the treated area. If drugs are not effective, a more drastic measure to control severe sweating is surgical cutting of the nerves leading to the sweat glands. Proper hygiene plays an important role in helping you control excessive sweating.


      It is acondition that affects both men and women and usually begins duringchildhood or at puberty, but improves spontaneously for many people intheir mid-twenties or early thirties. Profuse sweating that occurs at times other than in hot conditions orafter exercise is usually due to a rare disorder called hyperhidrosis,marked by perspiration produced in abundance by overactive sweat glands. In addition, it may be helpful for you to avoid conditions of excessheat, and stay clear of diets that are too high in sugar, caffeine, andalcohol, because all of these may also contribute to your problem of vaginalsweating.


      While only a doctor can prescribe or perform certain hyperhidrosis treatments, there are things you can do to help make excessive sweating less of a burden on your everyday life: Bathe daily to keep the amount of bacteria on your skin in check. Stress is known to enhance sweating and it would help you if you take regular de stressing treatments. Once you have received your treatments from the dermatologist you can purchase the equipment to give yourself treatments at home from that point on. To me it makes sense to start with the easiest thing and work your way up to the harder, more intensive treatments if you don’t get results. Frequent treatments are usually necessary tocontrol sweating. Bring the questions and your answers to your next doctor’s appointment, or use them as evidence of the seriousness of your condition if you need to convince your health insurance plan to cover your treatments. Excessive sweating can be treated by: Simple treatments, such as roll-on antiperspirants (eg driclor); A type of electrolysis (called iontophoresis); Medication, eg beta blockers or probanthine; Injection of botulinum toxin; Surgery (sympathectomy). Simple or medical treatments of excessive sweating might not control the symptoms, or they might induce intolerable side effects. Consultations: Consult a neurosurgeon if sympathectomy is necessary in severe cases of hyperhidrosis that are refractory to all other treatments. The treatments available are still far from perfect but do give hyperhidrosis sufferers an alternative to just putting up with the condition. Non-surgical treatments include medications, botox for palm sweating, anti-persperants, and iontophoresis. A number of different treatments and products are available to help people with severe underarm sweating.

  3. What is a really good antiperspirant?
    My doctor refused to perscribe me drysol until I try other antiperspirants. I already tried Secret Clinical Strength, Certain Dri, and Mitchum and they all don’t work. What is a really good antiperspirant besides those 4 that is for excessive underarm sweating? Thanks!

    • I know this sounds gross… but men’s antiperspirant works better than women’s. My friend told me this once and I thought it was a bit strange, but apparently it works. Try one that doesn’t smell too strong.
      Good Luck

  4. How do I stop my excessive sweating of the armpits?
    I eat healthy, I exercise /am active, I’ve tried clinical antiperspirants such as drysol and the secret one, but drysol burns and gives me a rash and secret doesn’t work. Does anybody have any suggestions? I read that getting botox could help, but I don’t really want to do that unless it’s a last resort.

    • You may want to test out a man’s deodorant. Try it on a weekend where you won’t care if you smell like a man for a little while. Men’s deodorant is generally much stronger than women’s. If the clinical stuff didn’t work the men’s still might.

  5. How can I cure my excessive sweating?
    I’ve always been a heavy sweater and it makes dating very embarrassing. I’ve already tried the doctor, can anyone recommend anything else?

    • My husband also struggled with excessive sweating that embarrassed him terribly. He dealt with depression and anxiety around wondering whether he smelled bad or not and it also tended to make our intimate times unpleasant. My husband is not the type to see the doctor about something like this, yet it was bothering him so badly that I took it upon myself to find him a solution. After weeks of searching I finally came across the online Stop Sweating program ( http://www.onlinesweatingcure.info ). Their natural methods free from medical surgeries, prescription drugs, and ‘miracle antiperspirants’ seemed like something my husband could handle so I placed my order.
      Within just a few days of getting started my husband’s odor diminished, and by the end of the week it was as if I was living with a new man! I hope this works as well for you Jeff as it did for my husband. Best of luck.

  6. Safer way to control underarm sweat?
    I’ve learned that most commercially available “deodorants” can lead to cancer due to dangers of alums in anti-antiperspirant. Then I’ve been advised that I should just stick to plain deodorant without the anti-antiperspirant. However, it’s not so much the B.O. that’s bothers me, it’s the clamminess caused by excessive sweating. I sweat all seasons at all times; I can easily drench my shirts during summer and wet my clothes beneath the armpits during the winter. It’s particularly annoying and uncomfortable during the winter because it gets stuck to your skin, and it’s pretty cold at the underarm area when the wind blows through. Is there some way to fix this problem without the use of anti-antiperspirants?

    • First of all there is no conclusive evidence of antiperspirants causing cancer. Second, the only study done that may show some correlation between anti perspirant and cancer was possibly breast cancer. This study was done on women who shave and use antiperspirant regularly. Men have not had an increase in breast cancer since antiperspirants became prevalent in our everyday life. I’d say use the antiperspirant or carry baking soda with you and use it continually.

      Also check out snopes.com and cancer.org for further information on the widespread antiperspirant/cancer correlation you have heard.

  7. How to get rid of fungus and sweaty feet?
    I have fungus in my feet don’t know how to cure it and my feet is sweating dont knot how to cure it too.

    • Perspiration has a purpose in humans, its evaporation allows the skin to cool and the body to dissipate heat. Unfortunately, wearing shoes all day stops this evaporation and allows the sweat to stay close to the skin and causing various problems. Sweat is really nutritious to bacteria and if the sweat stays in place long enough on your skin, socks or the linings of your shoes, quite a colony can grow. The byproduct of bacteria and fungi eating your sweat is the offensive odour your housemates hate.

      Throw out all your socks made from synthetic material – they are not your friends. Replace them with socks that are 60–70% wool combined with 40-30% synthetic fibre. If you want to aim for the best socks, podiatrists sell socks made from bamboo fibre, which draw sweat away very effectively. You can even get some with silver woven into the material which will inhibit the growth of micro-organisms on the socks and on your skin. They are expensive but effective and can be worth the money, particularly if a foot infection is a danger to you, for example, a diabetic.
      Wear clean socks every day. Wash socks on the hottest cycle using Milton’s (or similar) nappy wash and dry in the sun.
      Change your socks in the middle of the work day if you sweat enough to soak the first pair.
      Don’t skip wearing socks because the sweat will be soaked up by your shoes which are much harder to clean than socks.


      Prime importance is to stop the sweat from soaking into the material of the shoes where it will become rancid. Buy some washable insoles for your shoes, and wash them every day until the problem improves and then weekly after that.
      Liners such as odour-eaters are cheap enough to throw away weekly and will go a long way to sorting out the shoes.
      You can swab the inside of your shoes with alcohol such as mentholated spirits.
      Try to avoid wearing the same shoes two days in a row allow them to dry out well.


      Check the soles of your feet for hard, dead skin which becomes waterlogged when sweaty and an ideal environment for bacteria. Remove it with a pumice stone or a trip to the podiatrist..
      Wash and soap your feet well at least once per day. Do it twice daily at first if bad. An antibacterial skin preparation can help. Check the chemist for a product intended for acne.
      As an alternative, you could soak your feet daily in weak black tea, which contains tannic acid. It is thought to make the sweat glands ‘pucker up’. Boil two tea bags in half a litre of water for a quarter hour. Add this to 2 litres of cool tap water and soak your feet for 20–30 minutes. Dry thoroughly and do not put on shoes soon after. Let your feet air to get really dry.

      Check in between the toes for white, dead looking skin, rashes or generally smelliness. Fungal infections love places that are warm, damp and dark. Use an anti-fungal preparation from the chemist that is based in either water or oil as it will disperse the wetness more efficiently. Keep it up until the symptoms are completely gone and ten days more. If this is not enough to solve the problem, see a podiatrist.

      Use a strong antiperspirant (which is not the same as a deodorant) which contains 20% aluminium chloride. This will be a man strength, sport antiperspirant. Give the feet a good spray prior to putting on shoes and allow a couple of minutes for it to dry.

      Drugs. Some medications have been known to cause unusual foot odours. Try everything above first, then consult your podiatrist if there is no improvement.
      Teenagers. Yes, its not your imagination, the problem is worse in teenagers! 1) Hormonal changes trigger excessive sweating 2) hygiene may not be his priority. This may change ‘naturally’ when he gets a girlfriend.
      Hyperhidrosis. This is a condition where the feet (and usually the hands too) literally run with sweat output. You will find you can’t wear thongs because you slide out of them. You can’t lean on shop counters because you leave a big puddle behind. This is a condition where the sympathetic nervous system becomes overactive. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the stuff you don’t have to think about like beating the heart, moving food through the gut and, of course, sweating.

      Pharmaceutical Interventions. Include anticholinergic drugs which interfere with block the action of the sympathetic nerves. They can be effective but the side effects may be worse than the problem and include: dry mouth, blurred of vision, constipation and sleepiness. Bromide is also sometimes used but has other side effects related to virility.

      Surgery can be performed to ablate (burn off) the sympathetic nerve and is called a sympathetectomy. It has been implicated in impairment of other autonomic functions and needs good consideration. You would need to be referred by your doctor to a specialist neurologist

  8. What’s the best antiperspirant underarm deodorant?
    I’ve used right guard extreme gel, and it works fantastic! BUT! I always get stains on my shirt from the gel that can never come out. So I switched to Degree For Men, and it’s horrible. So what underarm deodorants do you guys recommend.

    PS: I Don’t care how good it smells, I just want one that would help me stop sweating.

    • Mitchum is the best. you can go two days with reapplying its so strong. Also if you have excessive sweating you might consider botox injections in the arm pit. It paralyzyez the nerve so it doesnt react and sweat.
      Good luck

  9. What’s some good armpit deodorant for men, that blocks sweat?
    I’m looking for an armpit deodorant for myself that keeps your pits dry. I sweat profusely under my pits, it could be winter and I sweat very easily. I’m sick of having to wear an extra t-shirt under my regular shirt just to hide this fire hydrant. Does anyone know of any good armpit deodorants that keep your pits dry and protect against sweat? I desperately need a new/good one for this coming summer. Thanks!

  10. How to stop underarm sweating?
    How can i stop excessive underarm sweating? i already use Certain Dri, which is an anti-perspirant which i apply sometimes at night. it helps a little, not a lot. the sweating can be really embarrassing, cuz i also get stains on my shirt then. what should i do? thanks. best answer rewarded.

    • I think wearing cotton cloths works well for those suffering with excessive sweating problems aside that Shaving your armpits more frequently works well and most of all try to use men antiperspirants because i have heard that they work at some extent as well.

  11. How can you stop excessive sweating ?
    its really embarrassing when i sweat alot and i mean ALOT.
    i normally sweat on my back, under arms, neck, and face.
    its really gross and i dont know how to stop it i drink plenty of water and that still doesnt help.
    any help please ? is there like medication ? or anything ? thank you !

    • Been there, done that. My uncle told me about Mon Ray Antiperspirant. I had tried everything else known to man, so I thought “what did I have to loose”. But, this product really helped me alot. I use it on my underarms and hands. No sweating. I am talking about someone who changed their shirt twice a day. Look them up. They have a website.

  12. Probable causes of having poor leg circulation and excessive sweating in my groin area?
    Both legs have poor circulation and my groin sweats (yes is hot, seems like it has a lot of blood flow).

    The sweat in my groin area stinks excessively and seems very sticky!

    • The groin is one area on the human body that has a preponderance of sweat glands. So to some degree it can be a problem for just about anyone. If you sweat excessively in that area it can be caused by many conditions such as: stress and anxiety, adrenal disorders, diabetes mellitus, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus, hypercalcaemic nephropathy, metabolic syndrome ,multiple endocrine neoplasia II (MEN II) – also called Sipple’s syndrome, renal tubular acidosis (RTA),hyperparathyroidism and sleep apnea. The only connections between the groin sweating and poor leg circulation could be nerve damage in the lower spine (the so-called “horsetail area” at the end of the spine.where the spinal nerves spread out, or diabetes. I would imagine you have tried all the more obvious treatments, long showers, keeping the area dry with body powders and antiperspirants, wearing light fabric underwear. If none of that works then it is time for a doctor visit for a diagnosis. The doctor may have you try a prescription antiperspirant before any of the more involved techniques are tried.

  13. How to stop excessive sweating and armpit sweat patches?
    okay, so i use an antiperspirant called mitchum for men which my mum said would stop the sweating and B.O. it stopped the B.O but not the sweat. I really need help on how to stop sweating. i need help BEFORE TUESDAY as i am going out. i don’t want tips on surgery or any antiperspirants etc. i just need some overnight remedy or method to stop the sweat and stop/cover up sweat patches.

    • Hi

      Excessive sweating is a common problem that more than 3% of the population faced with. It is not only a cause of embarrassment for the individual, this condition can also create many problems with someone’s lifestyle as well.

      However there are different ways that can help you to reduce your excessive sweating.
      Check these helpful methods to avoid hyperhidrosis:

      Keep Away From Sugar

      having high sugar level in your blood produces hyper activity and anxiety that can easily produce excessive stress, also meaning excessive sweating.

      Avoid Alcohol

      Drinking drinks with Alcohol causes the dilatation of blood vessels that result in an increase in body temperature and therefore excessive sweat.

      Don’t Eat Spicy Foods:

      Spicy foods have the same effects as alcohol, it makes the heart pumps more blood and so the body, to regulate itself produces sweat.

      Adopt Your Clothing:

      Don’t over dress, and in summer or any other hot weather don’t wear synthetic fibers. Use breathing fabrics like cotton. This will ventilate your body and void any accumulation of sweat.

      Avoid Caffeine:

      Caffeine is a stimulant that increases your anxiety. Caffeine could be found in coffee and other soda drinks.

      Stop Smoking:

      Smoking is also a vessel dilator just like alcohol.

      Learn Yoga or Meditation:

      A common cause for excessive sweating is stress. To avoid or reduce stress you should learn to control it. The best way to control is by learning meditation or yoga techniques. Mastering those can make a huge difference on your life.

      good luck

  14. How to stop excessive sweating naturally?
    Do u know any way to stop sweating naturally? If you know any products please tell me :)

    • I remember the old TV commercials for antiperspirants – the one where they sprayed a tick on a girl’s back and then gave her a workout in the desert, leaving the tick dry. http://www.marketingmagazine.co.uk/news/53016/ADWATCH-Anti-perspirant-agencies-work-sweat/?DCMP=ILC-SEARCH http://www.unilever.co.uk/brands/personalcarebrands/sure.aspx

      I never use them myself, but prefer to wear loose pure cotton clothes when sweaty, so the threads can wick out the sweat and also offer enough ventilation for the sweat to do its job properly – to cool you down. You should avoid anything man-made, such as polyester, anywhere sweaty.

      If you have sweaty armpit trouble in the gym, maybe you could punch a few holes in your shirt and darn them. Then you can get lots of air to the wet area to dry it out.

      I was in the Philippines last Easter. It was so hot and humid, and I had to keep changing my T-shirt, but after a while I acclimatised to the heat and didn’t sweat quite so much. I still drank lots of clean fresh water to replace that lost by sweat, which is good for health.
