I have uncontrollable excessive sweating in areas that most people don't sweat.This problem is Embarrassing. I have had this problem for several years maybe 5-6 years. Hum.....now that I'm writing about this ....I remember that I had hyperthyroidism for too many years and in 1999 I had my thyroid zapped by taking a nuclear pill that dissolved it. I am now on Rx to keep my thyroid level up. My T3 & T4 levels are normal. This is just an example of how bad I sweat. When dressed up in very nice clothes or any clothes for that matter, My back sweats and my face will sweat so bad that drops will roll down and drop off on my clothes and my hair next to my face will be wet. I also sweat even worse from just under the fold of my breast down to belly button. I am not over weight at all. And then double worse than that is my thighs, especially back side of thighs to my knees and crotch sweats so much thru my clothes that it appears that I have peed in my pants and heavy sweat mark comes thru my clothes. The wierd part is I DO NOT sweat heavy under my arms or palms of my hands. I am 51 and I am not in menopause yet. I DO NOT have night sweats at all.
Sometimes it will last 30 min & sometimes it will last up to an hour.
I wear cotton underwear with a thick mini-pad to absorb some of sweat. I change my underwear many times a day. I also try to wear 100% cotton clothing when I can.
