Sweat Stains!

Question Posted Sunday August 8 2004, 12:55 am

Okay, I have a problem with sweaty armpits. I'm sorry if this seems gross, but it's becoming a big issue. I always have to wear black shirts to hide it, but school is starting on Monday, and we have a uniform (a baby blue t-shirt) I don't want to wear a jacket, because I'll get really overheated! I even tried switching to men's deodorant and nothing changes! I'm really embarrassed about this... I don't know what else to do! Someone, please help me! Thanks sooo much, in advance!!

There's nothing you can do about it. You just sweat a lot it's perfectly normal. Just try not to over-heat your self and make yourself hot. Soon it'll be colder and you won't sweat. If not you could bring the extra t-shirt and switch it when you start to sweat. Hope I helped! <3

xokristabelle answered Sunday August 8 2004, 12:06 pm:
WEll, first let me explain. There are two types of underarm products:
- Deodorant covers up the smell of sweat.
- Antiperspirant eliminates sweat.
Some do both jobs, and I recommend that kind. For mild odor protection try:
Dove rollon- liquidm but feels really cold first thing in the morning.
Secret- kinda weird rollup thing, but comes in several scents and works well.
If these don't work try Adidas (women's kind). It's meant for athletes so it should work for you. Good luck! If none of these work, see your doctor. All products are available at Walmart.

Just use deoderant and then put baby powder in yout armpits. It will dry them up a little pit. Also you could wear a tank top under the blue t-shirt and it might soak up some of the sweat.
Good luck and send me any questions you have ;)

ps.plz rate!tx

Well it soundz like you have hyper hydrosis which is caused by genetics... when you have this condition ur palms, da soles of ur feet and ur under arms are constantly dripping wet... This Happens when ur sweat controlling nerves work more than they are supposed... And when u sweat like this theres nothing deodarant or antiperspirants can do... What you can do is go to the Dermatologist and they can inject botox in in ur underarms... that'll fix ur problem... however this only lasts for a year... so its needs to be done every year... Another choice u have is a Sympathectomy... This is a surgical procedure where the surgeons will cut the nerves in ur under arms so they dont send the messege to your sweat glands to work more than they should... this procedure has sum short term side effects which are costly so talk to a doctor and find out whats best for you... what u can do in the meantime is use underarm pads which can be sewn into ur clothes... u can find them at fabric stores...

HeY! That is usually normal. How about you consult your doctor and get a really good anti-perspirant. Maybe that will help. Tell me how everything goes! Good Luck at school!!
XoxO! *HaY*

My sister has this problem.It's a condition by the way...that you can be given a diagnosis by your dermotologist. ANYWAY--The best thing that I can tell you to help is buy "CertainDri" (I think it's spelled like that, I went up into her room to find it, but I failed miserably, and she started screaming) BUT--this takes about two days to kick in, and it closes the glands (for the most part) under your arms, and then after that you put an additonal deoterant of your choice (if you feel more comfortable with men's do that) And it should improve.

I sweat a lot too. And i'm guessing you've must have tried every brand of deodorant out there. But the one that I like the best is Secret, in either Gel or Solid form, both works really well. Men's deodorant doesn't work! (i tried too)
