I've been suffering from excessive underarm sweat for about 6 years now. When I say suffering I mean never wearing a t-shirt out in public. I have tried every single product you can buy over the counter including Certain-Dri (if it worked for you, great, but it doesn't work for me so don't suggest it or anything like it), powders, maximum strength stuff that "guarantees wetness protection". Nothing at all has worked and I'm absolutely sick of wearing sweatshirts my whole life. My problem obviously isn't caused by puberty or it would have passed by now. Anyone I trust enough to talk about it with doesn't understand what I'm going through. I would get the surgery, but I won't be able to afford it for at least a year and I'm so fed up with it right now. It's hardly warm and I'm dripping with sweat under my arms. The sweat doesn't ever cause odor, but that's the only upside. I'm sickened by these people who are selling books for $50+ for natural cures that probably won't even work for me. Any suggestions that do not include going to the drug store and buying Certain-Dri are greatly appreciated.

  • Botox, bro.....botox. It won't be permanent, but it may provide temporary relief.

  • Botox, bro.....botox. It won't be permanent, but it may provide temporary relief. I think a doctor can prescribe something for you. I use the secret platinum and it has been the only thing that does the trick. What have you tried? Are you eating a lot of garlic? OR hot spicy foods?

  • Like I said, I've tried everything over the counter. I don't eat anything in excess.. I don't know why that would cause sweating anyway.. I don't always feel hot when I'm sweating

  • Ask your doctor to prescribe Drysol....it is kind of a pain in the butt to use, but it works wonders. Good luck.

  • The doctor prescribed Drysol is great. I used it and dries you up really good. Sometimes too dry but better than wet. I had excess sweating in the hands and underarms embarrassing for a guy. I had the surgery....recovery was not bad but it takes about a week or so. But the results are amazing. My hands are great and so are underarms. But the down fall is that you still have to sweat and your body has to sweat somewhere else. Legs, face, chest.
