Hey,
I've got a problem that I've noticed heaps of other people have. Even when I'm not doing anything that is strenuous or tiring, I start sweating. Mostly in the underarms. Anyone else have this problem? What can I do about it? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem. There is no cure, you will suffer forever and ever. I guess deodorant or maybe just walk with your arms straight up in the air so air can dry away the sweat.

Move to a place where it's constantly cold?

There are "prescription" deodorants that are more potent than store bought stuff that will probably make you not sweat. I don't really know the details or how to go about getting any though. One of my friends told me he used it. But I don't know if it is really prescription, or what...but there is stuff that is more powerful...

So there's still hope?

they have prescription deodorants that are made strong enough for that. i think adidas just came out with one thats prescription strength, i remember a commercial about it. try it out.

if it doesnt work, then cruise around with sponges taped in ur armpits.

You might have an overactive sweat gland, like that girl from Medical Incredible, go to your doctor.

I have the same problem. I just tried many different antiperspirants to find one that worked. I have found that Degree Ultra Dry work and some of those prescription strength types work.

well..I sweat easily too, but I keep it under control.

make sure you're using a good antiperspirant. it's essential. also, I found wearing an undershirt, or even under armor helps draw the sweat from your body and I actually feel more comfortable with an undershirt on. You want to have it sorta close fitting, not super loose, but not super tight either.

I don't know how shaving your underarms would help with keeping sweat down, but it can help them not smell as bad because bacteria can't hide in your hair and get smelly.

the deodorant I use is old spice arctic force. works great. it's stick, but gel works well too. you can try right guard, adidas, just for heaven's sake, do not get stinky and then spray yourself with axe or tag. it just makes it worse.

I got some weird anti antiperspirant from France. It does me wonders. The only problem is, it's running out
