I am a 23 year old female. I have hyperhidrosis under my arms and they constantly sweat, which is pretty gross to see in the morning when I get out of bed. We tried deodorant but it didn’t seem to help much. The best way we’ve found so far is to use an antiperspirant that has aluminum zirconium salts in it – just not any antiperspirants that contain aluminum chlorohydrate or zinc chloride because those are toxic and can cause damage to the nerves! Also, if you’re using an antiperspirant with these chemicals, make sure you put on a thick layer every day so your skin doesn’t absorb too much of them through friction from putting on clothes or rubbing against each other while getting dressed/undressed.
Anyway – what’s the best method for stopping this? Will applying ice directly onto my skin work? Is there anything else besides this stuff that could possibly help me stop sweating so hard all over my body?
