I Believe I Have Hyperhidrosis. I Sweat So Much In My Underarms For No Reason.

I Believe I Have Hyperhidrosis. I Sweat So Much In My Underarms For No Reason.

I sweat a lot and it affects my everyday life. When I go to someone's house or go to school I have to wear cardigans or dark colors to cover it up. It's embarrassing and I hate it. I want to get a clinically proven deodorant. I was wondering if anyone could tell me which one works best for them. I think's I'm going to get the clinically proven from Dove and Secret and see which one works best. Any suggestions? Also, I would love to hear other's stories and how they coped and found treatment.

What Are The Best Treatments For Hyperhydrosis?

What Are The Best Treatments For Hyperhydrosis?

I tried Iontopheresis (for my hands and feet) and whilst this worked it didn’t completly stop the sweating so my dermatologist recommended botox. I could only have it in my hands and it only worked for 2 months. I have also tried medication but it made my mouth so dry i had to stop. What other treatments are available? And what treatments have people found to be the most effective?

A MyHyperhidrosisTeam Member said:

Glycopyrrolate Work for me. Yes it makes your mouth dry but it is worth it to me not to be sweating from my head all the time .

How Can I Find A Doctor To Help Me With This?

How Can I Find A Doctor To Help Me With This?

My doctor just keeps telling me the sweats are from menopause. But I swear EVERY single day. Nevermind all night too. I am getting so frustrated cuz I can't even go out. I can't do anything without people asking if I am ok. Even my leg and ankles are swelling so badly now I can hardly walk which makes my sweats even worse cuz walking takes so much more effort. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!

Still waiting on Drs diagnosis. Like you 'it's menopause' is usually the result. Only one that called it HH was a chinese herbalist. I literally cried when he said it ...
