    The first time I noticed my uncontrollable

    sweating, I was standing in line for lunch my freshman year of high school. I never had a problem before that. 11 years later I still suffer from it. However I found a life changing undershirt that stops all underarm sweat and allows me to wear anything I want, something I haven...

    It's A Horrible Curse To Carry

    I've never been diagnosed with it, but I sure as hell have it. I sweat excessively in my palms, feet, and underarms. I have ever since I was a kid. I really don't mind my feet or underarms sweating. That is fine, but what is really annoying is my palm sweat. I could never...

    Nothing But Tanks

    I am 13. I have hyperhydrosis. To put it bluntly it sucks. My mother will not get me anti-perspirant from my doctor, so I have banished to the world of tank tops, even throughout the winter. Tank tops. Every day. It can be -20 or 150 and I sweat the same, sometimes more in the...

    I have suffered with hyperhydrosis ever

    since I can remember, but it has definitely gotten worse as I have gotten older. I have quite severe facial & cranial sweating with my armpits & torso slightly less severe. I never get sweaty hands or feet though. It's hard to live with it as it is so visual being on my face. I...

    Around 10 or 11 the problem began.

    At first I was unaware but my stepmom would tell me to go wash under my arms, I would, but she would still complain afterwards. With me the sweating is mild to moderate but I have a rancid odor that drives me insane. I'm constantly trying every different or new brand of...

    I have suffered in silence

    for over ten years with this horrible problem. I did visit my gp many years ago, had a blood test (results came back normal) and presumed that nothing could be done! It is only recently that I have been doing lots of Internet research, that I have found so many people who suffer...

    It's when your body has excessive sweat glands.

    I have them mostly in my hands,feet and armpits. It makes me sweat like crazy, even when it's not hot. I can just be standing there and my hands will start dripping with sweat, and I'll get huge sweat stains on my clothes, it's super embarrassing. And sometimes my feet will...
