4 Resources to Stop Excessive Sweating

Dr. W. Y. Chung, MD - Monday, July 11, 2016

Excessive Sweat
When summer rolls around and you can’t escape the hot, humid days it can be hard not to be embarrassed by how much you find yourself sweating. Obviously, this is a natural reaction to keep our bodies cool, but there are some ways you can alleviate issues and completely stop it. Don’t let profuse sweat stop you from feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Don’t Show Up to Work Sweaty

If you get sweaty with minimal physical exertion, like just walking to work than there are a couple actions to take. Make sure you are wearing loose cotton clothing so that your skin can breathe. Use oil-absorbing sheets to remove any sweat and dab it in any place you don’t want makeup to smear. You’ll want to finish with and oil absorbing powder that contains at least 30 SPF.

Antiperspirants For The Win

After you have added the practical anti-sweat tip previously mentioned, the next step is antiperspirants. There are various types to choose from over-the-counter and prescription strength. They do their job by stopping the sweat from reaching the surface of the skin when it blocks the opening of sweat glands. To get the best results apply antiperspirant at night and after showering.

Sweat Treatment

Next Level: Botox

If antiperspirants aren’t cutting it than consider a Botox (botulinum toxin) treatment. Botox will stop signals from nerve endings that tell the sweat glands to begin producing sweat. Every couple months you will need to have another session or else you will continue sweating as you did before the treatment.

The Be All End All

If nothing is working for you then you may have axillary hyperhidrosis. One of the most effective and long-term solution for this medical condition is MiraDry. It is a non-surgical treatment and has been cleared by the FDA. It works by using an electromagnetic energy that targets sweat glands and eliminates then with heat. Even with the extra recovery time it can be a game changer for anyone suffering from excessive sweat.

If you suffer from profuse sweating then take matters into your own hands and try out one of these solutions.
