  • I used to when I was younger and for some reason it got better as I got older. I feel for ya though!! Try Botox, it is supposed to work great for that!

  • It's been happening to me my whole life. I just buy clothes that won't show. The worst is that I sweat and I'm freezing the whole time I'm sweating!

  • I second the Botox. I've seen and heard great things about it. Don't know how you feel about needles, but they do a short series of injections and the excessive sweating stops. Maybe contact a dermatologist? They might be able to prescribe you something.

  • If you can't do the Botox then just use shields. They protect your clothes and no unsightly wet spots.

  • I was going to say Botox as well.. Ins covers it for that reason.
    Maxim is great too. Can order it online... It comes in a Sensitive version as well.. Put it on at bedtime and that's it.

  • Shave at night with shave minimizer than put one of those strong roll ons at night. Then in the morining do the same.Your body will take time to get used to it, but it worked for me.

  • I have also heard of Botox, BUT I have also heard that since it you stop the excessive sweating from your under arms that the sweat needs to come out. So eventually you'll either have a sweaty forehead, hands or feet or whatever else lol. But I don't know how true that is. I know this person who used to wear those pads for when you are breastfeeding for their underarms lol.
