Sweating All The Time Now
Hi, I have lived with hyperhidrosis for as long as I can remember, but only in the past 6 years has it gotten to the point where I’m sweating all the time…
While watching T.V. with my shirt off, I sweat through coats and even blazers. I have currently graduated from college and am now teaching, so I am in a position in which I must be in front of people all day.
I am so depressed from my over sweating and have gone to the doctor for proper medication , but this has failed me. I have expressed my feelings about this problem to my family and they seem to not take me seriously.
This can be so depressing when those you trust fail to even understand hyperhidrosis. However, I truly believe no one can understand the depression and self-loathing that comes with hyperhidrosis unless they have personally dealt with it.
I am currently looking into surgery as a final solution to this serious problem and am looking forward to a day that I can wear light colored shirts with confidence.
Answer from Chris:
Hey Jason, I’m sorry to hear that you’re sweating all the time and being forced to live w/ HH. Myself, my brother, and hundreds of people reading this right now know exactly what it’s like.
It particularly sucks that you can’t go to your family for it. Having support makes the process much easier. I sincerely hope that you found some relief from being on this site and reading other users’ stories.
With regard to surgery, be careful. The ETS sweating surgery has been seen to potentially cause uncomfortable side effects like compensatory sweating. However, there are a few newer procedures like Retrodermal Curettage, Laser Sweat Ablation, and even liposuction that can help the issue.
I have not yet written on Laser Sweat Ablation or liposuction, but I’m sure you can find information about them by Googling it.
Aside from surgery, there are many other potential remedies for hyperhidrosis. We have written on many of them in-depth. Please surf around this site and read for as long as you like. If you like what you read, you may want to look at our comprehensive guide to stop excessive sweating.
Hope this helps and you stop sweating all the time. Please let me know if you need anything else.
