excessive sweating

Does anyone else have this problem? Years ago i got a prescription for aluminum chloride to help but it seems to only help for a little... i dont know what else to do and i cant afford botox. Oh and BTW i even sweat when i am freezing

  • botox is usually the next step...but like you said it's really expensive try to google hyperhidrosis treatment & see if you find anything ...

  • its either menapause or anxiety attacks.
    botox wont help with sweating, botox is just to remove your wrinkles. I suggest just take as many bath's as you can and get into the pool too or get wet with the water hose as you play with yoiur kid, thats what I do.

  • actuallt betty, it's not always from menapause or anxiety, there is a real conditon called hyperhidrosis, it can affect men or women, and yes, botox does work, it's not just for wrinkles, what it does is temporarily paralize the sweat gland.... i used to be a dermatology nurse so i know what i'm talking about
