3 Different Ways to Stop Armpit Sweating

How To Stop Armpit Sweating

The most common place for excessive sweating is normally found at the armpits. We all know how embarrassing it can be at work or even just going out, and having people see puddles of sweat showing up through your shirt. Your probably wondering why you sweat so much, and it is not simply because your body temperature is too high or anything like that. Excessive sweating is actually due to a condition called hyperhidrosis. Now this is not anything life threatening or even very serious for that matter. However, it sure can be uncomfortable and make a guy or girl feel self-conscious. Luckily there are quite a few ways to treat it.

In this article, I have listed some of the most common ways to stop armpit sweating.

1.) The first and most common form is with the use of antiperspirants. Now I know your probably saying I wouldn be reading this article right now, if antiperspirants have been working for me. but surprisingly most people find a significant reduction in their armpit sweating by simply increasing the amount of times they apply their antiperspirant. Rather than just applying your antiperspirant in the morning, try using it twice a day in the morning and the evening.

2.) Sometimes doctors can prescribe oral medications to help stop armpit sweating. Specific drug names include Propantheline, Glycopyrronium bromide, Benztropine, Diazepam, Diltiazem, Indomethacin, Oxybutynin, and Glycopyrrolate/Robinul. However, long term use is actually not recommended due to severe side effects that typically occur.

3.) In 2004, the FDA approved the use of Botox injections as a form of treatment to help stop armpit sweating . It should be noted, that not only is this a rather painful option because it involves multiple injections into each armpit, but it is also not a permanent solution. Botox injections typically last anywhere from 4-6 months until another session needs to be done to maintain the results.

There you have it, I hope this has given you a better idea of some of the different options available to you.
