How To Stop Sweating Under Your Armpits?

I’ve tried deodorant, dehumidifiers and cold compresses—none of which work. What should I try next?

Sweating is the body’s natural way of cooling itself off. If you’re sweating a lot under your arms, it might be because your skin is too dry or because you have an underlying medical problem that causes excessive sweating. Ask your doctor to review whether there are any other conditions that could cause this type of perspiration. Signs include:

Excessive tearing when you cry or yawn (epiphora)

Severe headaches

Nausea and vomiting for no reason after exercising or eating salty foods such as chips or pretzels
