  • Hello people,
    I am new to the forum.

    I believe the reason for facial hyperhidrosis in males mainly, is the extreme response of sweat glands to male sex hormone. DHT DiHydroTestosterone is the active signaling hormone and the cell of the gland is the receptor of the signal. DHT blockers are used in oral form to downregulate DHT and reduce…[Read more]

  • This post is an overview about Qbrexza, a new hyperhidrosis drug that recently got approved by FDA. I have reached out to the parent company (Dermira Inc) to get more details and will update this post with more […]

  • I think my sweating problem started when I was in my teens, probably at puberty. It seems like it got a little worse right after I got married. Which I was 31 and my wife also. I just had to tell her about my […]

  • I work in the business field and it is very embarrassing to know you have sweaty hands and someone gestures to shake your hand and the thought that goes threw your head about what that person might think of you, […]

  • I'm 56 years old, and I suffered from the facial/chest perspiration since my teens. A little excessive, but bearable and not so frequent. Then I had a hysterectomy at 29, and was told I would be thrust into the […]

  • Rohit wrote a new post, I cried 2 months ago

    I am nineteen years old and today I found out what hyperhidrosis is…and I cried. I didn't know that I'm not alone.

    Most of my shirts are black or navy blue. I can't even remember the last time I wore a white […]

    • You are not alone. I also thought my sweaty hands and feet was something only I was afflicted with. Mine began in 9th grade and I would usually wear a jacket, even in warm weather, so that I could hide my hands. In 10th grade dance class for PE I remember leaving a puddle on the floor where my feet had been sitting during a prolonged instructional sit down session. Since we weren’t allowed to wear socks or shoes for the class, just a leotard, I just got more and more anxious the longer we sat there and that just led to more perspiration. I also thought nobody would love me with this condition, but I found my husband who was able to look past it as a minor flaw, as we all have some. Fast forward to 32 yrs of age, my painful foot bunion forced me to the podiatrist for some minor foot surgery and upon explaining my embarrassment he casually said, “That’s hyperhidrosis. Many people have it.” I researched it on this new thing called the Internet and was reassured. I had tried the night time aluminum chloride solution with gloves earlier in my early 20’s without any success. I asked my Kaiser doctor to send me to the surgeon to determine if I was a candidate for the Sympathectomy procedure. The surgeon did a nerve block test on me to see if the surgery would fix my problem and after speaking personally with 2 of his patients about their surgeries, I had the surgery in 2002. I am lucky that I have little compensatory sweating, mainly when I eat spicy foods. I work in a hospital and touch patients frequently, so this had really affected my daily interactions at work. Although the surgery has its own potential serious risks, for me, the confidence I gained after the procedure was the best unexpected side effect.

  • I have dealt with excessive sweating under my arms for YEARS. I have had to wear paper towels under my arm pits and sweated through that within minutes. After using heavy aluminum based deodorants that irrupted my […]

  • Rohit wrote a new post, Don't sweat it 2 months ago

    I have always considered hyperhidrosis an attack on my life. I've had it for as long as I can remember. It started with my hands. The sweat would pool so quickly when I would cup them together even with no […]

  • Hey. I don't know whether I suffer from hyperhidrosis or not, however my anal and perineal regions have started to sweat profusely. I did a little experiment today. I cleaned and dried the areas, then applied (a lot of) talcum powder on them and put on clean boxer briefs. I was out for one hour max and when I got home, I checked my underwear to…[Read more]

  • Hi! My name is Ana. I'm a 18 y/o student from Mexico.
