You are NOT alone in your fight against excessive sweating! On this site, you’ll find a ton of people who have taken the time to share their experiences and most important, their solutions to stop (or hide) the sweat.
Hyperhidrosis (the technical term for excessive sweat) does not discriminate; we have stories ranging from teenagers to senior citizens with the majority sharing what works for them. Sometimes, it just helps knowing that others share your pain and that’s what this site is all about, sharing.
It’s said that about 1% of the population has hyperhidrosis, a condition in which the body produces extra sweat. Generally, it begins during adolescence but can start at any age and continue throughout our lifetime effecting areas such as the face, hands, armpits, feet, trunks and thighs; sweating can occur at random throughout the day along with night sweats.
Excessive Sweating is a serious matter, especially when it occurs in front of others. Simply hiding your condition from others can cause a great deal of emotional distress which in turn increases the amount of sweat produced thereby creating even more stress! Worse yet, the doctor may prescribe a highly addictive anti-depressant which may begin a downward spiral from which you may not recover.
Stop Sweating Safely
I started this site in 2004 because I found so many slanted websites either owned by or sponsored by doctors looking to perform expensive operations that falsely promised lifelong cures. Many visitors have had this operation (called ETS) and ended up worse off than before the surgery! DO NOT RUSH into anything, take your time and read what others have to say before making a move you might regret for the rest of your life.
To help keep this site real, I try to screen all the comments BEFORE they appear so it may take awhile for your comment to show. You would be amazed how many companies try to promote their products under the guise of a person suffering from excessive sweating!
I pride myself on the genuineness of this website and safe, natural ways in which you can control your sweating. This site is ad free, I have no sponsors, am not affiliated with any doctors and do not generate money in any way; I ask only that you help others by sharing your experience and understanding. Help me pay it forward won’t you?
