What Can I Do About My Super Sweaty Armpits? It is the normal question that comes in everyone's mind. Super Sweaty Armpits have to be one of the most embarrassing problems to have. Lets not kid ourselves if you have armpits that sweat profusely you know you have a problem!
What most people don't realise is that at least 1% of the population suffer, to some degree, from this. There is actually a name for this condition, I guess you may already have heard of it if you're reading this article - it's called "Hyperhidrosis".
Hyperhidrosis, or excess sweating, is a common plight among teens and adults. It can happen in the armpits, feet, palms, face, or elsewhere, and can be embarrassing if it occurs at an inopportune time. While it’s not the most embarrassing thing that will ever happen, we understand that it’s a real problem that people like to have fixed. For whatever reason, supersweaters have more active sweat glands than most people.
You can get prescription antiperspirants that contain higher concentrations of aluminum hydroxide or aluminum chloride than ordinary deodorant, such as Drysol (20 percent) or Certain Dri (12 percent). These can be applied three nights a week at bedtime and washed off in the morning. After it is working well, it can be applied once or twice a week (and still washed off in the morning) for three to six months until sweat production has subsided. Most people can then back off and not use any of the medicine for another three to six months, then repeat the cycle.
