I've been trying to find a cure for this problem for almost 2 years now!

I can be sitting at my desk and start sweating for no reason. A LOT from my face. Everyday when I come home my underwear are wet from sweat and I can't even sit on leather seats cuz I sweat so much. I sweat when I do any type of activity and talking to people unplanned or even checking out at wal mart makes me sweat. I can't even go to night clubs because my face will be drenched with sweat.

Can someone give me some advice? I've seen doctors and they have just given me Zoloft which I'm 90% sure hasn't helped at all.

  • I had a friend with a sweatting problem a few years ago. She would be sweatting most of the time, had to choose clothes specifically that would not show sweat up and wore lots of face powder (don't wear make-up so can't remember what it's called) to dry it up. She basically told me that her doctor said she could have an operation to sort out this problem, but it could cause further problems later in life. This wasn't due to age or anything as the person in mention was only a teen.Hope this helps!
