Me & Sweat

Author: Neti

Hi, my name is Neti. I’m 23 years old. I never knew there were so many people who suffer from excessive sweating like me. Finding these resources online has helped me deal with the sweating problem.

I started noticing the “Hyperhidrosis” a few weeks ago. This disease, if i may say that, really bothers me very much, especially in the social environment. I usually sweat much more in front of a lot of people. That’s why I normally stay away from really crowded places…

The biggest problem is that I’m affected by hyperhidrosis in many areas–my hands, armpits, legs, and face. The facial sweating is my biggest problem. I can’t hide it from anybody!

People can literally see my sweat. Especially when I’m nervous. My face gets wet and I can’t wear make-up the way I’d like to.

This is taking a big toll on my self-confidence. Please help me…

    they have these face wipes you can buy online from a canadian pharmacy (called i think) and you use them a few hours before you’ll actually need your face to be dry. they generally work better after you’ve used them for a few days. i guess it needs to build up in the system. i’m currently trying acupuncture and right now i still use the face wipes daily but i am noticing results with the acupuncture. hopefully within a month or so i wont have to use them anymore.

    For the makeup issue, wear water-proof makeup. I’ve found that it works really well against sweat.
