sweating problem


Question Posted Thursday May 2 2013, 7:52 pm

I'm 14/f and I sweat so bad in my armpits and even my butt.. No matter what season its wet under my armpits. It's cold and wet and disgusting. I have to keep my arm down and I can no longer wear gray clothing, or any other clothes that you can easily see sweat on. Tank tops, sweatshirts, north face, everything! When i get up there's like a wet mark showing my sweat too! I'm a girl, I shouldn't be sweating more than guys like this.. And yes, I use deodorant. It's not the typical one, its the special sports one in the box. Should I go to the doctor? I can't deal with this anymore. Help!

If you're sweating excessively, it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor. There are treatments available beyond store brand antiperspirants.

As for body sweat, here's a tip that just about saved my life. Go to the drug store and get some medicated powder (like Gold Bond, or the store brand). The one I get costs about 5 dollars, and it's a huge bottle. When you get out of the shower and dry off, poof some of that on you wherever you tend to get sweaty. It'll keep you drier, and it has the added bonus of cooling you when you do sweat.

While sweating is normal for a body, you don;t want to stop it totally and try to block it with a Anti Perspirant because it can block up the glands that sweat. I know someone whose glands swoll up under their arms and they were told by dr. to switch to using only anti deodorant.

I am sharing that piece to remember for later once your excessive sweating is under control.

What do your parents think? It doesn't hurt to see a doctor. Maybe there is a change in diet that could help or perhaps it's a normal faze for some teens. You didnt say how long its been happening. Did it start with puberty or have you had it all your childhood and only now concerned since you are teenaged. I vote for seeing a Dr.
