• I do not have a “serious medical condition”, but recently I read a story of a woman who thought she had hyperhidrosis, but it turned out her sweating was caused by a dangerous liver malfunction. This story scared me and reminded me how excessive perspiration can be a sign of a serious health problem. I had consulted my physician earlier and know…[Read more]

  • That's an amusing advice, Jenny… I can see how it can be useful, especially as an antidote for sulking. 😀
