What Can Be Done To Help Me With The Problem?

It starts on the back of head neck area. The droplets begin to start running down my back. I hate it. It makes me so self conscious. I want to scream and go hide from everyone.

Has Anyone Tried Lume?

Has Anyone Tried Lume?

Too Hot Here; But Hate Cabin Fever

North Florida/Lower Alabama is oppressive in the summer—hyperhidrosis is awful, even inside. But, I don’t want to be trapped inside in bad weather—plus, I have a limited income for four-wheel-drive and heat. Any suggestions on a good place to live?
