Picture this situation:
You’re at work, in the middle of an important meeting. You suddenly feel a little uncomfortable under your arms. You quickly look down…and realize that you have big, sweaty half-circles under your arms!
Or maybe you’ve been in this situation at a party…or in a store…or just while sleeping!
People with sleep apnea face this problem all the time, because apnea sufferers tend to be overweight – and they also toss and turn during sleep, which itself can result in excessive sweating. In fact, according to one survey, excessive sweating is experienced by 66% of people suffering from sleep apnea.
Excessive sweating (also called hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing problem – not only is it uncomfortable, it can also affect your mood and productivity during the day.
If you’ve ever searched for information on how to stop sweating, you are likely part of nearly 7% of Americans who suffer from hyperhidrosis.
In searching for an effective remedy, sufferers are inundated with hundreds of products that claim to provide a solution to the problem. The large majority of these products provide little or no benefit. This causes added stress and disappointment for people desperate to find relief.
If you’ve looked online to figure out a way to stop sweating, you’ve likely come across many websites that provide a few tips and tricks. Some provide a bit of relief; however, most provide only temporary relief and can add to the stress of the problem.
One of the solutions you might have seen is the “Stop Sweating and Start Living” eBook. This comprehensive guide provides “practical and unique treatment that permanently gets rid of your underarm sweat problem – naturally and without side effects.”
Based on personal experiences of the author, this treatment for excessive sweating shares simple and basic tips and remedies for controlling your sweating problem.
Here are some other common ways that people handle their excessive sweating:
- Wearing loose clothing. Loose clothing sits further away from the skin than tight clothing, so is less likely to absorb perspiration. Many people wear undershirts (which they change at various times throughout the day) to absorb the sweat before it can reach their outer garments.
- Frequent showers are another way to deal with this problem, but they seem to only provide relief for a few moments after the shower. And not to mention the inconvenience!
- Using antiperspirants is another common method to control sweating (or at least control odors). The layering method varies from person to person. Generally an application is started with a dry solid, followed by a roll-on, and finally a spray.
Many over the counter antiperspirants claim to contain prescription strength ingredients that prevent excessive sweating. But users of these products have had varying degrees of results.
- Botox injections can also be an effective treatment, however the benefits are relatively short lived and you must return for additional injections. Ask your doctor their opinion of Botox injections for your condition.
- Surgical procedures are also available. Surgery is considered the last resort in solving your problem. Surgery is never without risk -but many sufferers who have had surgery claim success.
- Perhaps the most effective, natural method to permanently stop sweating is to follow the instruction of someone who has done it.
When thinking about your perspiration problem, always keep this in mind: every condition is treatable. If you’re tired of being embarrassed to go outside, pick up a guidebook like “Stop Sweating, Start Living“, or consult your doctor.
In the meantime, carry a small bottle of talcum powder with you. When you begin to sweat excessively, douse yourself with the powder, which can absorb the perspiration and provide temporary relief.
