    Sweating isn't a bad thing. It's only bad if you sweat and STINK. Sweating is one of the big ways the body rids itself of toxins. So unless it's a problem even when you aren't hot or exercising, or if you stink. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    I sweat even when it's cold outside. My hands and feet will sweat in the dead of winter. I don't know why but they do.

    Talk to your doctor, there are injections they can give into the arm pit to stop you sweating excessively.... I think I'm going to get the treatment soon also, it's weird, even in winter, but it tends to be when I get too cold in winter.. almost like my body is trying to balance it's temperature using the same methods as in summer. I hate it!

    I think you can actually botox the sweat glands underneath your arms if it is becoming a major concern, though I do not know anyone who has had this done personally and I think they only do it if the problem is quite problematic and a real burden in their lives.

    it's true about the botox...
    I know someone who had a problem with excessive sweating...
    he could hold a napkin in his hand & it would be soaked within minutes...
    but he went to a couple of doctors & they solved his problem...

    I used to have the same problem and I know it can be embarrassing. A friend told me about a solution available from a pharmacist called 20% aluminum chlorhydrate. It was fantastic, but, it was very harsh on my skin and I ended up with a rash. I started to use underarm shields.

    Eventually I just decided to live with it. And now I don't sweat very much unless I'm hot and stressed. I think one reason I was sweating was being stressed about sweating.

    Now I use Mitchum Anti-Prespirant, deodorant stick unscented and a very light cologne.

    When choosing a deodorant remember a deodorant only helps reduce odour, an anti-perspirant helps reduce sweat.

    Two suggestions, see your doctor or a naturopath pharmacy. I've heard there's some very good natural remedies.

    I have the same condition. It's called hyperhydrosis, and besides having surgery (fuck that, because you're doing it for social acceptance) there's little you can do about it. When I was a teen, I noticed I sweated like a waterfall. I thought it was a good sign, that I was getting rid of all the bad stuff, but actually excessive sweating is physiologically inefficient.
    Since I also have anxiety problems, which increased the sweat, I learned meditation to decrease the anxiety. This has helped decrease my sweating in social situations but I still drop gallons of water when exercising. And in the summer I notice it more, but know what? I see lots of people walking around in the summer sweating too.
    I am slowly learning to be confidant no matter what I look like. Now I just walk around, and if I sweat, I sweat - this attitude change has actually decreased my sweating too. The more you pay attention to the condition, the more nervous you'll get and the more you'll sweat.

    Thank you Pluto, I was trying to thank of the name for it: hyperhydrosis. A friend of mine suffers from this, sweaty hands and all. He is of a nervous disposition, which doesn't help.

    But Nappydymo, unless there's an odour problem, I wouldn't worry. When I was 13 a student teacher held a drama lesson at school where several classes attended in the main hall of the school. It was a hot day, and the guy was probably nervous and he got huge wet stains under the arms of his white cotton shirt which grew and grew. I thought it was fucking sexy, such a turn on. Anyway, of the 60 or so cheeky lads that were there not one made a comment or ribbed him about it.

    And just think of the pheremones you must be pumping out!

    Hey nappy,

    I'd go to a pharmacist and ask him and explain what you have here. If anyone knows a good remedy, it would probably be him/her.

    I agree, Botox is the only solution; but, go on line (google) and type in "Excessive Sweating". You'll find several sites. It can be very embarrasing, especially in a social setting. AND, the more you stress about it in public the MORE you will sweat. It's almost mind over matter. Wear a tee-shirt and try to give those pits a little room to breath. One remedy for me was to enter the social setting and get the sweat going. Then excuse myself to the bathroom, put paper towels under my pits to soak up the sweat, and return to the group much more relaxed. Hey - it works for me!!

    It seems to me that I'd not mind sweating if I were trim and healthy ( which I am more or less) than to sweat and look obese.

    Another solution is to carry extra t shirts and shirts with you, and a towel. If you are too self conscious, this should ease up the burden you feel you have.

    Wear an undershirt. It may help with the sweat marks. Good luck.

    I'm very weary of getting any injections into sweat glands and such. You never know the Long term effects on what it will do to you later in life. Like I said...its not a bad thing if you sweat and you being so young...you should really just deal with it unless it's an odor problem. You're a man...men sweat. I wouldn't do anything medical unless I had too, especially since you're not thru growing and hormones still being overactive. :)

    I'd be very cautious about botox treatment for hyperhydrosis. From what I've read about it, it's expensive, painful (the swelling can take several weeks to go away), and has to be repeated about every 6 months.

    False. I have severe hyperhydrosis of the underarm. My dermatologist gave me botox injections and it felt like a bunch of ant bites except there was NO swelling or itching. The whole procedure took like 10 minutes and my insurance even paid for it. It has completely cured mine, and it only has to be repeated every 8 months for me. It is amazing. It used to be I'd have to carry an extra shirt of a roll of Bounty paper towels with me everywhere, so that when I get where I'm going I wouldn't look like I'd been running in 103 degree heat. I would recommend this to ANYONE that has hyperhydrosis, it will make you feel more confident, and keep you dry.

    What's the difference between "good sweat" and "bad sweat"?

    (just kidding)
