    Jenny, do you think I could use Maxim Sensitive wipes for non-facial sweating? Or would it be better if I dealt with excessive sweat on non-sensitive skin with regular Maxim Wipes? If you used other types of wipes from this brand, please let me know. Because, as you just illustrated, it can be tricky to listen to random reviews online, or even…[Read more]

  • Hi Florence!

    I've just read your hyperhidrosis story and in one place you wrote:

    I wanted something that will cure me – something that will let me forget that I ever had hyperhidrosis.

    So, what I'd like to know is: did this wish of yours come true? Did miraDry really help you forget you have (or should I say had?) hyperhidrosis ?

    Apart f…[Read more]

  • I did some decent amount of research on miraDry a while back, and unfortunately, now it definitely is not an option for sweaty hands.

    To make things simple, I looked up a clear explanation online. Here is the link.

    The surgeon basically says that in order to treat your sweat glands, miraDry first uses vacuum to separate your skin from your…[Read more]

  • About Me

    Hi, I'm Steve. I have been living with hyperhidrosis for many years, without even knowing that I have it. It wasn't a medical thing before, or at least none of my doctors showed a lot of concern about […]

  • Hi,

    I have started doing iontophoresis for underarms, but have problems wits occasional skin lesions. Now, the manual says I should use petroleum jelly in those spots, but I really can't stand the smell of it. I know, it's not a particularly strong smell, but I really find it repulsive. Since petroleum jelly is specific and cannot be replaced…[Read more]

  • I am thinking of doing iontophoresis for armpits, but I first need to decide which device to use. Probably Drionic, Idrostar or Hidrex, from the looks of it. The best choice, I'd say, is a device that has an option to use a really mild pulsed current. I am going to do some more research on specifics of pulsed current for each of potentially useful…[Read more]

  • Steve started the topic Bromihidrosis in the forum Hyperhidrosis Forum 7 years ago

    Here's a topic where we can rant about bromihidrosis. :/

    For those who don't know, Bromihidrosis = excessive body odor. Sometimes this is caused by hyperhidrosis, a.k.a excessive sweating, and I wonder if anyone here suffers from the bromihidrosis & hyperhidrosis combination…
    I can tell you this is very difficult and makes excessive…[Read more]

  • Make sure to always apply the lotion a lot earlier before you go out – stay in a cool place (like at home with your air condition turned on) to make sure your face won't sweat too much (or at all!) and wait until your sunscreen lotion completely dries off. And I stress completely! And then wait some more. 😆 And then go out.

    With this,…[Read more]

  • I have heard that Hidrex is good for treating excessive armpit sweating, but I don't know if it is as effective as it is for treating palmar and plantar hyperhidrosis. Anyone with experience is free to enlighten us. 😀
    And I agree with Elena there – iontophoresis machines have that kind of reputation… but the way things are going, this will…[Read more]

  • Steve replied to the topic miraDry in the forum MiraDry Forum 7 years ago

    If all turns out to be good in a few years miraDry could be a real deal

    My sentiments exactly. A permanent hyperhidrosis cure without a hyperhidrosis surgery, that's what we need. And underarm sweating is especially tricky with underarms being so sensitive… Ah what am I saying, it's equally bad wherever you sweat. =)
    Anyway, back on topic – as…[Read more]

    @ Tim
    Heh, you forgot to add one important thing: miraDry is currently used only to stop underarm sweating. Not everyone knows that… Given that I have axillary hyperhidrosis, I've been researching miraDry as well. As of now I am not sure if I really need a strong procedure like that… maybe someday.

    @ Leons
    miraDry is supposed to be a real…[Read more]

  • Hey there ladies! 🙂
    I am not so great when it comes to supportive talk, but I really wanted to give you a hand somehow… So, I found a good website and opened a special topic about anxiety and hyperhidrosis.
    There is also a link which includes tips and tests… well, you will see. I hope you will find it somewhat useful, and I am sure there are…[Read more]

  • Reading through this forum, I have noticed talk about anxiety and its connection to hyper hydrosis.
    While we know what hyperhidrosis is, it's not so easy to figure out what's anxiety – I mean, what's the difference between a small anxiety issue and the real (maybe even clinical) problem.

    I ran into a really good website, which I hope will be…[Read more]

  • Surfing across some tempting websites that sell sweat-proof clothes (Kleinert, for example) got me thinking that I never gave a decent chance to this method of dealing with excessive perspiration. Okay, in my case it's excessive underarm sweating specifically – and clearly this is the type of hyperhidrosis that benefits from sweat-proof clothes…[Read more]

  • My excessive armpit sweating stayed the same throughout the years – in fact, for about two decades now! The change in intensity had more to do with the shifts in my fitness level, or winter/summer seasons, etc.

    I daresay that it gets easier as time goes by – by now I had a lot of time to figure out how to stop sweaty armpits, and tried out a lot…[Read more]
