How To Stop Sweaty Armpits

How To Stop Sweaty Armpits

No I'm not talking about the kind that can be taken cared of by simply using a deodorant/anti-perspirant. I'm talking about severe sweating that your clothes get soaked with perspiration even if you use anti-perspirants. To say that this can be embarassing is truly an understatement.

Yes it is quite normal to sweat heavily specially when it's hot. For some people, however, sweating is a big problem even if at normal temperature levels. This hub will show you how to finally stop sweaty armpits so you can gain back your confidence and lead a happy, normal life.

What You Can Do To Stop Dripping Armpits

Excessive sweating in the underarms is a medical condition called axillary hyperhidrosis by doctors. Here's just a some of the things that you can do to stop sweaty armpits along with the odor that comes with it.

  • Keep your body clean. Avoid reusing clothes that you have worn before specially if you have perspired on them.

  • Chili, onions, garlic, alcohol and coffee can stimulate sweating. Avoid them as much as possible.

  • Regularly apply anti-perspirant. I know that some cases are so severe that anti-perspirants don't work. Read on and I'll tell you how to deal with the severe cases.

  • If you start sweating because of anxiety or panic attacks, treat the cause of the problem. Sounds common sense but you'll be surprised how many people neglect using common sense.

  • Botox can help you treat excessively sweaty underarms. However, keep in mind that Botox ® is just a treatment and not a cure. The effect will eventualy wear off and you have to do another treatment. This can be expensive.

  • Use a stronger anti-perspirant that contains aluminium chloride solution. Anti-perspirants that contain aluminum chloride are proven to help with excessive sweating. Certain Dri ® cost only $4.69 from Amazon.

  • Iontopheresis, may help if hyperhidrosis is so severe that even aluminum chloride solution can't remedy. It involves putting the affected area of skin in a liquid. A small electrical current is passed through the liquid. This is not painful or unpleasant but the treatment has some effect on the sweat glands.

  • As a last resort, you can try surgery but this is risky. Surgery doesn't always work and if it does work, there's a chance that sweating will start elsewhere in the body.

It's always best to consult your doctor if your underarm sweating is severe.

I have used Certain Dri and I can say that it DEFINITELY works! Best stuff I ever used. I highly recommend it. You can get it at most pharmacies.

Great hub! There is new scientific research that indicates that there might be a risk when using antiperspirants on a regular basis (specially for women: enhanced risk of breast cancer). So if in doubt, use the natural methods that the creator of the site recommends.
