Your Answers: The Worst Hyperhidrosis Advice (Infographic)

Posted on November 27, 2018

We asked and you answered! We posted this question: What bits of "advice" do you wish people would stop telling you? and hundreds of you took the time to respond.

What did we learn? From the unconcerned ("It's just sweat") to the plain unhelpful ("Just use a towel"), advice is hurled at us from friends, family, coworkers, even strangers. While most suggestions are probably well-intentioned, hearing them over and over can make us feel that our condition is minimized and misunderstood.





Some of the most common answers we heard:

  • Don’t think about it
  • Just wear layers
  • Stop worrying
  • It’s just sweat
  • Are you showering?
  • Don’t worry, it will clear up on its own
  • If you ignore it, it will go away
  • You should go to the doctor
  • You should moisturize

Everyone's situation is different and not all of these apply to each person. Tell us: What advice about hyperhidrosis do YOU wish people would stop telling you?
