I have palmar hyperhidrosis since junior high school days. Before, I wasn't aware that it is actually a disease. I always ask my mom why are my hands always sweaty? How do I stop my hands from sweating? My mom thought it was a part of my puberty. But hey, it's been almost six years and I still suffer from this situation.
How do you treat sweaty palms?
One option that the doctor told me is to undergo Botox. Not the one that is use as cosmetic surgery, but there is actually a Botox for palmar hyperhidrosis. But it is pricey that I cannot afford it considering I am only 20. I also tried soaking my hands in vinegar, I also used baking soda, applied coconut oil to name a few. But the sweat keeps on coming back. Then somebody told me that the first line-of-defense against sweaty palms is an antiperspirant. So I tried looking for the one that would best suit my needs.
What is the best antiperspirant for hands?
Carpe antiperspirant hand lotion is one of the best ones. It is specifically designed to stop sweaty, clammy hands. It helps manage the symptoms of palmar hyperhidrosis, or excessive hand sweat.
The other one I tried is ZeroSweat antiperspirant lotion. It is also popular in treating hands sweating.
Another one I tried is Odaban, what I like here the most is that it is a spray and not a lotion. They also have hand cream and lotion but I bought the spray one. This extra strength antiperspirant spray reduces my perspiration and also the odor efficiently.
Of all these three, I would go for Carpe. It is recommended for those who suffer from excessive sweating of the hands. I also found this one is available in all leading stores.
