I Sweat Too Much and It Embarasses Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 48 People

    This is embarrassing,

    but I really need help with this! I'm pretty sure it's cause of my social anxiety, but I don't know how to stop it! I tried meditation so I could calm my nerves in social situations so I wouldn't sweat, but that made it worse. I can only wear hoodies, but with a certain kind if...

    I Sweat All The Time

    This is a really huge problem to me which ruins my life. I sweat all the time, except when I'm home alone - that's the only time when I feel normal. I believe my sweating is caused by my nervousness, I'm pretty sure I have social anxiety. Sweating limits my choice of clothes...

    I am overweight so I sweat intensely.

    It wasn't got at all. A tiny but humid. I was sweating buckets all over my face (mostly my forehead and above my lips) and had sweat dripping down my legs! I had it behind my neck a lot too. It's so humiliating how much I sweat! I got home and smelt under my pits and I smelt...

    It's So Embeaassing..

    It's so warm at school.. I mean at home I can just open my window and that's it. But at school I can't do that. So I sit there with a short-sleeved shirt and sweat a little and all the others sit there with a long-sleeved shirt and a pullover and don't sweat.

    *Drip*

    Sometimes I feel like I sweat more than the average female. This is why I hated high school gym class so much, especially if my gym class was scheduled early in the school day, because then I'd spend the whole day feeling gross. I'd avoid wearing certain fabrics or colors to make...

    Me Too.

    for me the odor isn't really a problem, the deoderant takes care of that. but it doesn't take care of the moisture, which shows on my clothes and often ruins them. i sweat irregardless of temperature or amount of stress i'm under. what gives?

    My Head Is Like A Waterfall

    I sweat buckets from my head. It drips all down my face, runs into my eyes. This happens with the slightest exertion. At the office the copier jammed, so I open it up and start checking to see where the paper was stuck. Immediately sweat pours down my scalp and I hear the plink...

    Embarassing Sweat

    It does somewhat embarasses me.  You know, when your surrounded by people and you're the only one standing out, sweating.  My glands are working over-time and I think this happened every since I gained weight.  Damn!

    Tap

    I think I sweat too much for a girl. My under pits are like dripping taps and I always end up with wet patches where ever I go. I like to think that I am pretty fit being a gym freak. I would sweat more than most guys running next to me on the thread mill even after a couple of...
