Excessive sweating in armpits. Any remedy? - Online Doctor Chats
please proceed with the query.
I sweat excessively from my armpits.... becomes quite uncomfortable doesn't matter if it's hot or cold
From how long is this.
well, quite some time...don't even remember now... but lately it has increased the interesting thing is... I was in the US 3 weeks back...for a week..
and there was no sweating there. at office...which maintains about the same temperature as here in India..
ok, what is your height, weight, age, sex
I'm 5 feet 6, 64 kgs, 29, male
do you have any medical illness.
i have a family history of high cholestrol...and my reading was about 200 an year back... which is when our family doctor prescribed Rozavel 10mg..
now my cholestrol reading is 140
so are you taking it now
i've stopped it for a week to check if that's causing anything but apparently not...
where do you experience sweating most
so i'm planning to resume from monday armpits only nowhere else
ok, no other area. from how many yrs is this, or is it sincce birth,
doesn't happen when I sleep though
does anyone in your family have this
also, stops randomly... but always happens in office not since birth i think
i generally sweat a lot... but that is when i'm in the gym..
it does not seem to be genetic cause
5 years back i think the sweating was lesser than it is now
no one in my family has this
it might be due to stress , because you did not have it from long time If it is present from long time
i don't think i'm stressed
all over , unable to control then we suggest surgery
that's quite extreme
otherwise.you can make some life style changes like wearing cotton clothes
using talcum powder over the area
ok..any specific powder?
some people do resort to surgery
i dotn think that is necessary for you
do not wear balck
any other colour and it's a big wet area!
it increase sweating
oh is it
wear cotton clothes, white is preferable,frequently use talcum powder
be in cool environment
like ac room in office
yeah, the office has a/c
that's where i sweat the most!
not that much at home
where there is no a/c
anyway...so the primary suspect seems to be stress?
you do not sweat in non ac room
yeah...not that much at home
but a lot of sweat in office
See if you sweat in ac room then it might be due to stress, fear etcc..
because you do not sweat at home
try to relax
yeah...and zero sweat while sleeping
so when you are sleeping no sweating, that is when you are most relaxed
try meditation daily for 20 min
thanks a lot for your help doctor
see if you can control your feeling s and emotions
you are welcome.
