OP, I suffered with the exact same problem. You've basically described me perfectly.

Earlier this year it got so bad that I couldn't take it any more. I couldn't even focus at work because I'd constantly be thinking about my sweating and whether I had visible sweat patches. Plus it was so uncomfortable, and cold.

As others have said here, there are products out there that will help.

I've tried a couple of products. One is called Sweat Stop – specifically, this is the product I use. (That's a link to their UK site, but they also sell in USA and Canada.)

It's £20, which sounds a bit steep. But the important thing to note is that one bottle will last you the best part of a year. It's strong stuff, and believe me you don't need to use much!

First time I used it, I couldn't believe it. It really works! Like magic. My pits stayed dry the whole day! Whereas just the day before, I was going to the toilet every couple of hours and using the hand dryer to dry my underarms.

Going into work the first day after using that gave me such a huge confidence boost. I really can't put into words how much better you'll feel when you have to confidence to know you won't have uncomfortable sweat patches. It's been the single biggest boost to my self confidence all year, and I wish I tried it years ago. And when you put it in perspective, it has to be the best £20 I've ever spent.

Another product I've used is called Sweat Block, available on Amazon. It also works miracles, but I do prefer the Sweat Stop spray personally – it seems a bit stronger. These wipes are handy to have if you're on the road and don't want to carry the other bottle around. Do not use both at once – you will only need one or the other.

Okay, I'm finished with my lengthy sales pitch. I promise I'm not a paid shill! I just want you to know that there's a solution out there, and it really does work. For your own happiness, please give these products a try. You have nothing to lose – the £20 is worth the risk. You won't regret it. And then come back and tell me how it went :)

Good luck! I'm excited for you.

I hope this helps and if you have any more questions pm me! I know this is long, but it may have the answers you need and you can probably skim through it pretty quick. Good Luck!

For hands and feet try this product https://shop.sweatblock.com/collections/sweating-products/products/antiperspirant-lotion-hands-feet You can also use a Iontophoresis machine. I would recommend doing your own research and choosing if you want that done.

Try to find dri-fit socks or quick absorbing socks. Put in sneaker balls between your shoe uses and try to have at least two pair to switch between. Use foot powder to decrease the sweat and smell. Works better than I thought just some non name brand powder would do.

For your underarms you can use Sweatblock https://shop.sweatblock.com/collections/sweating-products/products/sweatblock-antiperspirant Certain Dri https://certaindri.com/ Drysol https://www.amazon.com/Drysol-Dab-Extra-Strength-35mlx2boxes/dp/B079W2FNPQ etc. There are a lot of different anti-perspirants, but just as my own opinion trying a few, I recommend Sweatblock or Cerain Dri.

I found for blocking sweat Thompson Tees https://thompsontee.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1J6P7dz35AIVT77ACh1wwAMsEAAYASAAEgJDUvD_BwE are the best under shirt for me. There are different options to choose how you need the shirt. If I get a shirt with the right size they can fit under t-shirts and graphic tees type shirts. They work with polos, button ups, and long sleeve shirts great. If you get any I recommend getting one at a time to test your size and there is a return policy as well. You also want to wash these often or on regular wash days for you so they don´t just have mad sweat and stench just sitting in there. For me no matter how much I´ve ever sweated, I´ve never had pit stains with them. They DO NOT prevent smell for exiting or body odor from forming.

TRIM and not shave your armpits. I say this so the anti-perspirant can get to arms and and not be blocked by hair if it is long. The hair makes your armpit more hot and it makes it sweat more. It provides ventilation to dry your arm up quickly if you only have sweat on your skin and on a little hair. The sweat doesn´t just linger on you forever and stay there as long. Put on deodorant 30-40 minutes before you leave then re apply 10 minutes before just a little bit so it can start to get soak in your armpit and and keep that smell there to override the body odor and that re appy is so the smell is stronger and you can smell better. Don´t put it on too late or you´ll start sweating while walking and that deodorant still wet mixing in with the sweat will make your stains worst.

For inside of your underpants I recommend baby powder https://www.walmart.com/ip/GOLD-BOND-Ultimate-Men-s-Essentials-Body-Powder-Refresh-360-Scent-10oz/51176870?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1150&adid=22222222227038811169&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=90378248312&wl4=pla-182528769392&wl5=9012692&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=112549851&wl11=online&wl12=51176870&veh=sem&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIv-2g3t735AIVxsDACh2SdAYrEAQYASABEgLIGfD_BwE (Any powder should work that had good ratings though) . You also want to TRIM, not shave you pubic hair and butt hair. Trimming pubes should be nothing and should be fine but your butt watch out or you can get a razor and set settings to like 3mm to wear it isn´t short enough to itch or give rashes. Through out the day just wipe down there and maybe get a body spray without a strong smell and just spritz some to hide smell.

If you don´t workout, start. Get a membership to a gym or just do workouts at home. Find a workout plan and do those to build muscle and get in shape. Start running, when I started sweating when exercising I started sweating less. Drink plenty of water. I suggest getting a water bottle that keeps water cool so you can drink it after walks and when you need to. Eat the right foods, this helps but only when you eliminate all sugary and fatty foods and it isn´t that big a deal. Take showers daily and if you take them in the morning sit in cold water for about a minute or two to take your body temperature down. Wear a cologne to mask the body odor smell and to smell good. Try to find a way to be more comfortable because if you eliminate the nervousness in you, you will sweat a lot less. Use cologne in bathrooms before class and a neat trick I made is to put dryer sheets in your under pants, shoes, or if you tuck in an under shirt in there.

Botox is an option but it is expensive and repetitive, especially for a college student.

Edit : Keep those cheap mini fans you can find in walmart lines, or invest in a more expensive one thats still cheap to dry armpits and body

u/rEvolutionTU · 7 pointsr/malegrooming

I feel like I've been posting this once a week in this kind of thread, not sure if it's basic enough to think about putting in the sidebar.

First of all, for all we know Aluminium chlorohydrate has no negative health effects whatsoever.

The main issue why a lot of people consider it "bad" (and why I usually recommend to not use a daily deodorant with it but instead something dedicated like this) is because the vast majority has no clue what it does, how it works and how to use it properly.

Think of it like something that shrinks your pores making it harder for sweat to come out (not entirely accurate but close enough). Now, in case you had an issue with your pores "overreacting" you just sweat less or, if they didn't "overreact" and your body still needs to dissipate heat you will sweat a little more in surrounding regions. However (this is why it's a horrible ingredient in something we use as casually as our deodorants) if you use too much of the stuff it results in the pores being like a blocked dam that's breaking, usually making you sweat more in the process. The fact that it leaves stains if used during your daily routine is just icing on the cake.

As usual, if you believe you're sweating WAY over the top just go ahead and ask your doc about it, you might have an actual medical condition that goes with it.

tl;dr:

  • Pick a nice fresh smelling and rather neutral deodorant without aluminum chloride for daily use.
  • If you feel as if you "sweat too much" in specific regions look into a dedicated aluminum chloride product (e.g. see link above) and use it exactly like the package insert suggests (before going to bed, wash it in the morning, less is more).
  • Use a perfume to your personal liking.

    A deodorant is not supposed to make you smell awesome (that's what your perfume does) and it's not supposed to make you sweat less. It's there to give you a general fresh feeling & smell and to be there for you in a pinch if your condition is... less than optimal.
u/Anna-Howard-Shaw · 1 pointr/RepLadies

I live in deep south Texas where temps are already in the triple digits before noon, with humidity over 70%. Its absolutely miserable about 8 months out of the year here, so I've had to come up with tricks to combat melting into a puddle.


I use Dress Shields with blazers when I wear a sleeveless top underneath or sweaters I don't want to dry clean every time. They kind of remind me of a..... panty liner. Just peel, stick, and throw away after. You can cut them to fit for shorter sleeves, or even just in half and stick them under the sleeve of a sleeveless top.

Also, this stuff literally prevents sweat. Like, completely dry under arms. I use it every 3rd night. I still use antiperspirant during the day, but it makes whatever I wear all the more effective.


Make sure read the active ingredients in whatever antiperspirant you're already using. If its under 18% Aluminium chlorohydrate or aluminium-zirconium tetrachlorohydrate, its probably not enough to do any good.
Mitchum is one of the best drugstore options with a higher active ingredient percentage.


Also, aerosol deodorant (like that Axe stuff for men) works really well for other areas, like boob sweat, or small of the back.

u/gstar1981 · 2 pointsr/Showerthoughts

Yes ! Moisture wicking underwear!

I work as a delivery driver in the hot and humid south and crotch rot has always been a painful/infuriating problem.

Lotions make this WORSE! I found out the hard way. I had a bad case of crotch rot every day after working a few hours so I put some lotion on it. Turns out your skin is inflamed and broken out because of the friction and moisture. You need to be DRY! I ended up with a yeast infection which is awkward as a dude.

But sometimes fancy underwear aren't enough...

So every morning I put Fresh Balls or Anti Monkey Butt on m'parts to keep me dry. They both work wonderfully, but the Fresh Balls is a lot less messy.

But sometimes fancy underwear and powders combined aren't enough... Fuck me.

So I keep Gold Bond Medicated Powder: Extra Strength in the truck. Just in case. The stuff has menthol and it super soothing.

I hope these tips help some people. And please let me know if you have any more tips!

Like. Pretty please.

u/ranalicious · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I have the same problem and I hate that I am limited to always wearing dark clothing (I live in Florida). My fiance and I were both unsatisfied with our deodorants and decided to look around on Amazon.

We have switched to using crystal deodorant for smell control and it does work! I like the Naturally Fresh crystal with aloe but the Crystal brand is good too. They are great because they don't stain clothing and they last a really long time, which kinda balances out the cost of this second product.

We also found a wonderful product called sweat block for controlling perspiration. It's a little pricey ($10/month essentially) but it's a high-strength concentrated anti-perspirant for people with hyperhidrosis in a wipe that you dab very gently onto your armpits right before bed. It does this weird twingy stinging sensation when it is absorbing into your skin but it really does work. I have noticed it is more effective if you can sleep in such a way that you won't sweat/be overly warm when you are asleep (I like blankets and sometimes it makes me too warm at night, and it doesn't properly do its thing). Read the Amazon reviews for more opinions/advice. My fiance also likes to use Cetaphil antibacterial soap only on his armpits as extra protection against smelling bad. I have mixed feelings about antibacterial soap but I sometimes use it.

I have always wanted a more natural approach to deodorant but I can't stand sweating so most "natural" kinds were unacceptable to me. In my opinion, this has been a good way to minimize extraneous potentially bad ingredients in my deodorant (fragrances, preservatives, whatever else is in clinical strength stuff) since I am just putting on a single chemical.

tl;dr sweat block wipes for antiperspirant and crystal deodorant stone for smell

u/scrub96 · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

scrub96 is here to help. I have the same problem. I used to just wear cotton undershirts but that did not keep me from sweating through everything. It became impossible for me to wear tshirts or even polos without saturating the under arm area. What I have done is a three step solution.

First I started using prescription strength antiperspirant. This helped a lot over the normal stuff. Second I picked up some of these guys: http://www.sweatshieldundershirt.com/ . Kind of expensive and not as great as I had hoped but they definitely work better than normal undershirts. These work particularly well if you have problems in the under arm area. Lastly i use these: http://www.amazon.com/SweatBlock-Antiperspirant-Towelettes-Rachael-Reduce/dp/B002PQ8BQM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1334699678&sr=8-1 .

With the combination of the three things above using as directed I can pretty much where whatever I want. I was seriously considering things like botox because I was sweating through anything I owned in a matter of minutes. I also found that cutting caffeine usage down reduced the sweat output.

u/Spoonermcgee · 2 pointsr/ValveIndex

Hey friend, I have hyperhidrosis too. There are some things you can try, almost surely there is one solution that works for you. I have gone through several and right now this product called AntiHydral has been the most effective. Only problem is I can't ever find any places that sell it besides one or two vendors on Ebay. There are some more easily available solutions like Drysol as well, but I have found AntiHydral to be the most effective for me personally.

Head over to /r/Hyperhidrosis and you can start working towards which solution might ease some of this irritating condition. Good luck, brother.

u/SgtPackets · 1 pointr/ITCareerQuestions

It all depends on where you are going to work/level of position.

Since it's help desk, I would recommend not going in a suit. But if you decide that the place is conservative/formal enough of a company to warrant wearing one, then do that. You'll never lose points for over dressing. It shows that you care enough about the job to make the effort to appear presentable.

My rule of thumb is basically this: Do I look presentable enough to meet with a client? Yes/No

I would recommend this.

  • Grey V-Neck undershirt (An undershirt should NOT be visible, which is why you get a v-neck with sleeves)
  • White/Light Blue Dress Shirt (No French Cuffs Please...)
  • Black V-Neck Jumper (Lambswool if you can afford it. Otherwise a cotton blend is fine)
  • Blue Tie (Full Windsor with dimple please)
  • Charcoal Grey or Navy Dress Trousers
  • Black Belt/Brown Belt
  • Polished Black Oxfords (Or Brown Oxfords if you're wearing Navy)

    Now, along with this I recommend taking your suit jacket with you in the car. This is for two reasons:

  1. If you see it's more formal than what you first thought, you can wear the suit jacket over the jumper.
  2. If it's casual you can dress down your attire by removing your tie. I think wearing a shirt by itself just looks odd without a tie/jumper on. So I opt to cover it.

    Here are two examples of that I mean.

    https://ashleyweston.com/mens-wardrobe-essentials/the-v-neck-sweater/


    Finally, for the love of god have your suit tailored. Doesn't matter how well your suit is put together if you're walking around with a sack on.

    Good Luck! Hope your interview goes well!

    PS: (If you have a perspiration problem I recommend this)

u/krissycole87 · 28 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Dove GoSleeveless active ingredient is: Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly (15.2%)
Try finding another deodorant with this same percentage or higher of AZT Gly.
For what its worth it seems they have some available on Amazon, must be the last of the stock cuz its $40 for a twin pack

If you are a sweat machine like me, I would look into Certain Dri. I get the prescription strength roll on which is intended to be used 3x a week (they have a stick version now that is not as strong that is intended for daily use but I like the strong stuff better)
You apply 3x a week at night before bed. After using it now for 9 or so months, I can happily say I sweat about 80% less than I used to. It has completely changed my life. Of course I sweat during a workout or strenuous activity, but my day to day I dont usually sweat at all. I can wear colored shirts again!

Its just an anti-perspirant, so every morning I still use a deodorant just to add some freshness. But now I can use any mild deodorant that I want, even the really cheap ones. And no longer need to load up on deodorant/antiperspirant combo products and pray for less sweating. I cant say enough good things about Certain Dri. If you read some of the reviews on Amazon you will see 99% of people who use Certain Dri saying the same thing. It really has been a game changer for me.

u/teehawk · 3 pointsr/malegrooming

Here are some things that I have found help for me at least:

1.) The biggest one is manscaping. Honestly. I bought a $20 set of clippers from walmart, and it has worked wonders. My pits are the biggest offender, so I use a #1 guard on the clippers, and take care of them. Less hair means less surface area for bacteria to grow an cling to.

2.) When showering, is use a basic shower brush. It is abrasive enough to feel like it is really clearing everything away, with the added benefit of exfoliation.

3.) Using a moisturizing bar of soap. My normal process is: rinse, soap, brush, rise, soap, brush, rinse.

4.) Others have mentioned Certain Dri which you apply at night before bed, and works wonders. I also rotate between 3 different deodorants/antiperspirants from day to day. If I only use 1, it is like my skin develops a resistance to it. My brain wants to say that is total crap, but I get better results by rotating. I then hit my chest with a light spray of body spray, like Axe. A little goes a long way with these. Srsly. After I am dressed, I use one squirt of cologne and I'm good to go.

Hope some of these help. Hang in there brother!

u/efallyall · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Aww, I'm glad that we're not suffering alone at least! I feel like hyperhidrosis is something that few people admit to having, but I've also rarely seen anyone who sweats as many buckets as I do! Like you, my hair and face get very oily because of it :(

It's so unfortunate that the only meds which do anything at all for hyperhidrosis are actually designed for health issues that are completely different and generally much more severe lol. Gotta give our doctors points for being creative on the blood pressure and urinary incontinence pills, but it looks like the side effects just aren't worth it!

You know, I actually bought Drysol last week! So you're finding that with regular use it's helping?

I actually tried it before, but I didn't follow the instructions carefully (the way you suggested makes so much more sense), so at the time it didn't work for me. But I'm going to use it every day for the next 2 weeks and hope that my pits build up some kind of strength in that time!

PS have you ever used underarm pads? They're unfairly expensive, but whenever I feel like wearing a shirt whose material shows sweat easily, I'll plaster these suckers on and they work!

u/Entropius · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The suggestion to use “Natural deodorant” is absurd. My guess is the author has zero experience with Hyperhidrosis and thinks natural solutions fix all possible problems. This reeks of being rooted in a Naturalistic Fallacy. Not only does the author tersely recommend “natural deodorant”, but they also failed to mention which one works, suggesting absolutely zero research into the subject, after all, surely there are natural deodorants that don't work, right?

For people who want a real solution, my best recommendation is to use a very powerful anti-persperant called Certain DRI, which is not to be confused with what's just a moderately powerful anti-persperant+deodorant called Certain DRI A.M. You may have to go to a Pharmacy to find it, but at least it's over-the-counter.

Things to know:

  • Certain DRI (the right one) is to be used the night-before as you are on your way to bed, not the morning of like most things you're used to.

  • It may take 2 or 3 nights to start working. (But when it works, it's damn effective).

  • May tingle a bit at first but you get used to it and won't notice that after a couple weeks.

  • Be careful not to over-use it, as that tingle could turn into a pain.

  • Annecdotally, the roll-on version is stronger than the white-stuff, but I can't personally attest to that since I haven't ever tried it.

  • Never apply it to shaved skin, or you will suffer from pain.

  • Don't overdose on the stuff like this guy and cause your sweat glans to stop working for over a year.

    The Certain DRI A.M. is just like any other deodorant, and is used the morning you need it. Not particularly impressive, as it's on par with a stick of Mitchum Advanced Control.

    Hopefully this will help anybody who's ruining their shirts or feels forced to wear undershirts.
u/birthday-party · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This won't fly with OP, but I wanted to comment in case this might work for you. I have excessive sweat in my underarms and have used prescription deodorant (Drysol), which dried me out severely (painfully). I have since done Botox treatment several times (thanks insurance), which is really effective. Happy to answer questions about that.

I have had really good results since with using SweatBlock wipes in tandem with my regular antiperspirant, since I moved cities and haven't found a doctor to resume Botox just yet. Great stuff.

u/Dork_Vader · 1 pointr/AskMen

As mentioned, Certain Dri is pretty good. As is Drysol.

One problem area for me is the forehead. One solution that I have found that works quite well are SweatBlock antiperspirant towelettes. They are not intended for your face, but I use it on my forehead and it works great with no side effects and lasts for a week or more. Just don't apply it in excess or more frequently as it will irritate the skin.

There is also a website, Kleinert’s that is devoted entirely to products to address excessive sweating. They have antiperspirants, wipes, inserts, special clothing, etc. They might have something that will help as well.

u/kachapati · 2 pointsr/AskDocs

Not a Dr.

I have a medical condition that can at times cause excessive perspiration, not just the pits, primarily face, neck, throat and upper chest. I just recently found out about this they look like wet wipes, you pat the area before bed and they're supposed to help reduce sweat for one week. I have so far only used one but I had tremendous improvement. So much that I only started to notice the excessive perspiration on the afternoon of the 7th day, it was rather cool and I had to stop and realize my sweat issue really has nothing to do with weather and that I had been free of it for a week. I'd say it worked for me for about 8 hours less than a full week, which to me equals success.

SweatBlock Antiperspirant - Clinical Strength - Reduce Sweat up to 7-days per Use https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002PQ8BQM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ZsKoDbM3NYA01

Highly effective when you start using it, but it's losing its magic for me (ordered it 11 times so you can tell how I liked this product and its benefits).

Also look into fish oil supplements as that helps your heart function better. Perhaps that has a correlation with the amount we sweat when we use our meds.

u/Berg9940 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame

Get him some Gamer Grip, that stuff is great and under $15! https://www.amazon.com/GamerGrip-Total-Solution-Stops-Sweat-Hands/dp/B00W1T7B1O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480978490&sr=8-1&keywords=gamer+grip. Under $10 on the scufgaming.com site, but maybe end up more than Amazon after shipping. BTW-If you ever do look into buying him a Scuf, I would lookup Cinch instead. I have both and Cinch was cheaper and they are arguably equal in which one is better. Spending that kind of cash though, either way, it would be better to let the cat out of the bag and let him choose the build customization, unless you know exactly how he likes to play.

u/vespria · 2 pointsr/wedding

My fiancé actually has hyperhydrosis, so he sweats a LOT, and was really unhappy thinking about sweating at the wedding. Anyway, for the last month he's been using/testing out a roll on deodorant type thing called Driclor. It has to be used right when he get's out of the shower for it to work, and he says that it stings the first two hours-ish after applying, but it stops him from sweating for about 24 hours. I would definitely test it out before hand, but it may be worth a shot. Good luck!

u/adhdaffectee · 5 pointsr/ADHD

As an avid gamer, and someone whose genetic line leans toward sweatiness, I empathize with your issue. When I play games, I often have a hand towel with me - even at tournaments - and a few people look at me funny. But the next time I go, I see two or three people doing the same thing once they saw me do it.

Additionally, I use this before playing:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010BVZ1VU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Haven't really tried any others for a comparison, but this one has generally worked pretty well for me. Hope this helps.

u/Bunzilla · 13 pointsr/beauty

Certain-dri roll on antiperspirant is literally the only thing that worked for me to stop my armpits from sweating profusely. You put it on at night (not after shaving though!) and the next few days you don’t even need deodorant, but I still used it to keep feeling fresh! I actually don’t even need to use it anymore but it honestly changed my life.

And you don’t need a prescription - they have it at cvs. Just make sure you get the roll on and not the solid as it’s not nearly as effective.

u/6ixnogood · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I had this problem. I bought this and haven't had any sweat problems since.

Check it -- Sweat Block

I would sweat so much at work, even though I just sit at a computer. Now I never worry or event think about pit marks or whatever. I only use some deodorant in the morning so I can get a nice scent.

Trust me...its damn good. I had my doubts before I bought it, but was super surprised and happy that it worked.

u/TleilaxuMaster · 1 pointr/offmychest

Have you tried something like this: Perspi Guard Antiperspirant Treatment (UK)?

It's very effective. I used to sweat a lot in social situations (social anxiety), and using this helped with that. The hand is probably the easiest place to apply it to, as well!

Otherwise see a GP and mention how it's affecting your quality of life. They might have something even stronger to prescribe.

u/washboard · 1 pointr/crossfit

There are a few antiperspirant hand lotions on the market. I've tried Carpe with pretty good success as long as you apply it 10 minutes prior to getting sweaty. I've used it for crossfit, disc golf, ball golf, and softball. When using it during crossfit, I found that sometimes I still needed to chalk up, but not nearly as often and it lasted much longer. I'd use it a competitions and it would last most of the day. I don't use it for crossfit much anymore because I couldn't justify paying for it when I have buckets full of chalk to play in. I still use it for the other sports though.

One thing to note is that it doesn't completely stop sweaty palms, but reduces it significantly. That's a good thing though because if you didn't sweat at all, it would probably create more friction. More friction leads to more blisters and tears.

u/J_rd_nRD · 3 pointsr/policeuk

Nice comfy wicking underwear like professional footballers wear is a good idea, talcum powder to stop any chafing and something like driclor antiperspirant - there's a bunch of really strong ones you can get on prescription or just buy https://www.amazon.co.uk/Driclor-Antiperspirant-Roll-Applicator-20/dp/B008R7BT5S

You can buy a set of different microfibre towels like a gym kit to keep stashed somewhere and use as needed

u/4greatscience · 1 pointr/summonerschool

I have very sweaty hands sometimes. I've recently picked up antiperspirant hand lotion to see if it helps and it definitely makes a difference. I still get a bit clammy but it's much more manageable.

The lotion I bought is from Carpe at https://www.amazon.ca/Carpe-Antiperspirant-dermatologist-recommended-non-irritating-hyperhidrosis/dp/B010BVZ1VU/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=carpe&qid=1554917555&s=gateway&sr=8-3

It's expensive though. If anyone has a cheaper solution to sweaty hands, I'd love to hear it.

Kudos to you for taking your training seriously enough to document and reflect on your performance and make changes where needed. That’s a winner’s mindset.

For oily grips, I can’t recommend this enough. It’s a huge help to n increasing grip without making your hands gritty or super tacky.

u/aybbyisok · 1 pointr/socialanxiety

Haven't used anything fro my face because it isn't an issue, but I googled some time a go for a solution for my sweaty hands and I came up on a lot of stuff some of it has mixed reviews on amazon so I'd recommend doing a little more research before you buy and maybe you'll find a better product, but there's this for your face.

And there are more products like this or this for hands.

Actually this might be what you're looking for, read the reviews and questions for more info.

u/como1103 · 5 pointsr/pics

Yep, this worked for me too. In high school/college I would wear an undershirt, shirt, and hoodie in the winter, and within an hour have sweat rings the size of dinner plates. For a while I would fold socks and tuck them into the sleeves of my undershirt just to stay so up sweat. Even tried maxi pads... they worked the best until I found Certain Dri.

I've only tried the liquid roll-on:

Zerosweat

I live in Texas and it is hot and humid here most of the year. I have been dealing with my right armpit sweating uncontrollably for years. It could be the middle of winter and my right arm would sweat through a thick sweatshirt even if I was standing outside.

I have tried many different products like Mitchum Clincal anti-perspirant, many different versions of Degree and so on. I could be sitting in an air conditioned office wearing a thin cotton t-shirt and my right arm pit would be sweating like I just ran 5 miles. My left arm was fine. I looked up why only my right arm pit was doing this but could not really find an answer. I was even considering getting botox injections to stop this. I decided to look on amazon for some underarm pads and was about to buy some when I saw other customers had also bought Zerosweat I read many of the reviews and saw some people had issues with burning after being applied. As I kept reading I did notice that was mostly people that took a shower at night and then applied Zerosweat. I went ahead and bought it really hoped it worked but I was expected to be let down again. Well I wasn't!

Zerosweat arrived on a Sunday and I applied it about an hour before I went to bed, just in case it started burning or I had a bad reaction to it I could wash it off. I applied it with 2 strokes down and up and that's it. I did experience a slight sting/itchy feeling in the middle of the night but nothing that was terrible. I woke up the next morning, took my shower, applied my regular deodorant and got ready for work. Usually after about 30 minutes my right arm pit is sweating and it is soaked through my t shirt, but not this day. I had no sweat from my right arm all day. That night I applied Zerosweat again an hour before I went to bed. Again I had a slight sting/itchy feeling but still nothing that was out of the ordinary. Tuesday was the same thing, no sweat at all from my right arm. That night I did not apply zerosweat because it should last a few days and not have to be applied every day. The next morning was the same results. No sweat at all from my right arm and I had not applied it since Monday night.

I am in love with this product and will continue to use it for as long as they make it. My shirts are now saved!

u/okitstimefordinner · 2 pointsr/Advice

Honestly I can’t recommend certain dri antiperspirant enough it works so well for me. You apply it at night and it lasts for like 2 to 3 days each time which is nice if you’re always in a hurry in the morning like me. I’ve been using it for ages now and I’ve only had to re-buy it once.

I know there are over the counter deodorants specifically for chronic sweating that might help. Just be careful because they are POWERFUL and you do need to sweat some to keep your body healthy, I'm fairly sure.

u/how-am-i-not-myself · 3 pointsr/Hyperhidrosis

I am getting ready to try Sweat Block and Hydrosal.

I'll try to report back and let you know how they work, but it could be a week or two before I really have a good idea. I want to make the rounds with antiperspirants before I try anything more drastic. And if antiperspirants don't work, I may just try acceptance because I am concerned about some of the other options out there.

u/CruellaDeBitch · 3 pointsr/blogsnark

Oops I meant Certain Dri (Drysol is prescription) and I get this one. There are two formulations and I prefer the most potent strength.

ETA: Read the directions on the box! My routine is use at night on clean feet, let the formula dry all the way. Then put socks on. Wash feet in the morning. This way I don't stain my socks or shoes I care about.

u/missyanntx · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I live in Houston, so yeah. I was also on meds that can (as in please stop I look like a pig!) make people more prone to sweating. This stuff has been a massive help. It's touchy stuff & please please please do a test patch, I dip a qtip in it and swab it on where needed.

u/purepyroga · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

There's a difference for sure. Baby powder is just talcum powder whereas Gold Bond has other medicated shit thrown in it. I use this stuff I found on Amazon, I like it because it adds a bit of Calamine powder with the talc.

Also, if you're not spending at least $25 on a pair of boxers or briefs, you're missing out big time. I've tried Patagonia, REI brand, but I've found Ice Breaker has the best Merino Wool undies, hands down. I like their Beast 150 series.

u/hardrockfoo · 5 pointsr/pics

Here is what I use. It's the same thing I'm assuming. An antiperspirant for your hands. the product is actually better just to use it every night before bed when your hands aren't sweating as much and it helps keep your hands dry though the whole day. You also don't have to tell your friends what that bottle of "gamer goo" is because it just looks like a bottle of lotion

u/HorseSeaMan · 4 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Alright I am a guy, that sweat a lot (mainly arm pits). About 3 weeks ago I bought an anti-presperant called Certain Dri(link goes to amazon.com page) and my arm pits haven't sweat even a bead of sweat since. Even when I work out!

I apply it when I go to bed at night. It is odorless, clear and not sticky or anything. It works overnight to shrink the sweat pores.

I've heard it works on feet and other areas, so you could at least try it.

Good luck!

u/svu_fan · 2 pointsr/walmart

May I also recommend Sweat Block? Sweat Block I know we sold it in our deodorant aisle years ago, don’t know if we still do. They’re these stronger clinical strength wipes that you pat on your armpits and it lasts for up to a week. You can use deodorant as usual. I used to use it all the time when I was IMS because I sweated so much in the backroom, and it was a lifesaver. I’ve been back on my store’s mod team for almost 3 years now, tho, and don’t have a need for Sweat Block anymore.

Also, how old is the fragrances you’re using? They do expire after so long. Just another thing to be mindful of. I strongly recommend cutting back on fragrance application.

u/Cyrax89721 · 1 pointr/mildlyinfuriating

It has more of a consistency of frosting, so no crumbs. Applies perfectly. I had issues with nearly every other style I would try until landing on this product. Old Spice Sweat Defense plus using Driclor once a week is the perfect combination, and it only took me about 30 years to find it!

u/Weenie · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I haven't used one, but I'm told that they do. More than anything, they help keep airflow under you which keeps you dry. A dry butt is a happy butt on motorcycle trips. It takes very little moisture to get you chafing and very uncomfortable.

Speaking of which, it's good to apply some Gold Bond or Anti Monkey Butt powder to your unmentionable areas before hitting the road.

u/rasterbated · 5 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I don't think it would be that strange. Do you live in a hot climate? That might make it more acceptable.

You could also use this stuff called SweatBlock. I don't know a ton about it, but it definitely works to reduce excessing sweating. A friend of mine uses it in the summer.

u/Squark09 · 5 pointsr/climbing

Hey, I have the same problem and have been using antiperspirant on my hands with great effect. I've been using Driclor, initally for 1 week every day before bed, followed by just once every 4 or 5 days.

This has made a big difference without requiring surgery or anything else more drastic. I also recommend the Metolius super chalk as it has it's own antiperspirant added to the chalk

u/drogean2 · 147 pointsr/YouShouldKnow

PROTIP:

Go to any drugstore and look on the bottom shelf for Certain Dri for about $5

Follow directions (by applying nightly), put on any regular deoderant you like during the day, and enjoy being sweat free FOREVER

u/mysetofstars · 1 pointr/opiates

I completely relate. Fent makes me sweat an insane amount. And I'm not normally a very sweaty gal outside my pits where apparently ALL my sweat decides it likes to leave my body (lol). But when using fent I sweat from every hair follicle on top of my head to behind my knees to my freaking feet.

I try to always have a cold water bottle with me. I pop it on the back of my neck when I start to really overheat and it helps stop it in its tracks sometimes. You can also buy certain deodorants to help with the excessive pit sweating (Certain Dri is the best IME: Certain Dri).

You might like the hand lotion stuff I started using recently. It feels kinda gross on your hands, and you have to put it on during the day, right before aerials is no good, but it really does help. I straight up forgot to use any dry hands at a hammock class after a couple days of it.

u/d0rit0 · 5 pointsr/india

avoid spicy foods; if you're overweight/obese, get fit! They sweat more.

bath daily, stay hydrated, not by alcohols/soft drinks but lemon salt water/soda water or just plain chilled water! Keep a bottle with you everytime! Also, take a few tbsps of apple cider vinegar atleast 3 times a day!

Get a high strength aluminium-based antiperspirant(not a Deo) I'd suggest this http://www.amazon.in/Odaban-Antiperspirant-Spray-30-Ml/dp/B001O1M6II or, this http://www.amazon.in/Driclor-Antiperspirant-Roll-on-75ml/dp/B001TU1EPU

The night before because it works it’s way into your pores while you sleep and can block the sweat from coming through.

I’ve also seen it at places like target or Walmart. It is a scentless deodorant too so you’ll still wanna use what you already use daily in addition to this. Hope this helps.

u/dragonx254 · 2 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

You could always try Gamer Grip. It's a tad on the expensive side but you can make it last, and it DOES actually work, from personal experience.

Otherwise yeah, maybe a new shell or grip attachment could help, but I have no experience with those things.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Perspi-Guard-Antiperspirant-Treatment-50ml/dp/B004803YDI

It really just makes your armpits dry as a dessert. What you do is, apply it before you sleep in the effected area( Your armpit), and the next morning wash your armpits, and then you have 5 days of dry armpits, but you have to apply it every 5 days. But it only takes like 2 minutes!

I have am currently using a roll on (Right Guard) but it doesn't seem to dry in the time after my shower and before I have to leave for work by the time I get the station I'm rather sweaty (30 minute casual walk in not so hot English weather)

u/dianadorablee · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

You should try Odaban! It's the only thing that's ever worked for me besides prescription antiperspirants like Hypercare or Drysol from the dermatologist, but you can get this on Amazon and I think it works even better than any deodorant or prescription one. I know how you feel, nothing has ever worked for me before I found Odaban.

I got a product called sweat block you apply once a week, plus clinical strength deodorant daily. Really controlled my sweating. I usually only need it 1-2x a month. I also used it under my boobs haha. There’s also a prescription version by a different name.

Ofc check with your doctor about medical concerns, etc, esp if this is a new problem. Make sure you don’t have a thyroid disorder for example. And if you sweat less you can be more prone to overheating so hydrate properly and try to stay cool.

u/donkeykingdom · 1 pointr/AskDocs

Sweatblock works wonders, and the active ingredient (Aluminum Chloride) is 14% whereas Certain Anti-Dry is 12%. I initially had to apply it 2-3 times over 1.5 weeks to see the difference, but since then I only need to use it once every 2-3 weeks to maintain, and I live in a humid area of Texas. Now I can be covered in sweat at the gym or outside, but my underarms are bone-dry. Just make sure you follow the instructions and use it in the evening right after a shower and let it set in overnight before you do any physical activity.

It's unscented. You put it on the night before and then you basically don't sweat at all the next day. It's awesome.

Edit: If you put it on two or more days in a row, the effect lasts for longer (e.g. two nights in a row might last for 4 days). I usually end up using it ~3 times a week.

u/jasminedunning · 1 pointr/ehlersdanlos

I have this too! Always from my scalp weirdly and it doesn’t sound like the worst thing and it’s not but it majorly impacts me daily and just makes me feel horrible. I have been tested for dysautonomia but don’t seem to have it but the sweating still persists and has for years and years.

I know Botox is meant to help but it’s expensive/ not available everywhere. The only thing I’ve ever found help, sadly if used frequently I find it’s effectiveness wears off, is odaban. It’s suitable for the scalp, although depending on hair thickness difficult to get to the skin, and face and body.

Odaban Antiperspirant

It’s super effective but seems to be less and less effective the more it’s used. I usually save it for specific occasions etc. Also follow the instructions. Use it at night then wash off in the morning. If you sweat in the night because it reacts with the water I think it can burn and sting very badly (but causes no damage and goes when washed off)

Apologies is you’ve already tried this and good luck!

Seriously though, baggy clothes help, A/C helps more, and if all else fails, well, there's a Anti Monkey Butt Powder with Calamine that has some good ratings.

u/BitterLumpkin · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I've dealt with this forever, it ruins everything. Here's what I've found works.

  • Pick up some Odaban. Make sure to follow the directions! This is strong stuff, one spray before bed DO NOT shower before using it. I've gotten down to using it once a week, but it will sting and itch if you abuse it.
  • Use an Anti-antiperspirant with a high Aluminum percentage. I like something with around 19%, also the paste style seems to work better and stain shirts a lot less than solids. My brand is Old Spice Sweat Defense. Use that every morning. We're trying for a 1-2 punch of sweat combat here!

    I've been where you are nothing but black t-shirts and a million undershirts. This is my routine and its working pretty awesomely for me. I've gotten to where I can wear a button-up shirt without an undershirt even on the hottest days.

I'd suggest using something like this. I used to sweat quite a lot (I used things like Mitchum sport (a supposedly 48 hour anti perspirant) but this, in conjunction with regular sprays which advertise themselves as invisible works really well, and I've never had any issue with residue (which happens with roll ons which I've used before).

u/Gleeful_Robot · 3 pointsr/AskWomenOver30

I happened to read about these two products today in a lifehacker newsletter I receive, perhaps they may help? [Carpe]() foot antiperspirant or [Sweat Block](). I had no idea such products existed until this morning and the Amazon reviews rate them as excellent. Also I have read that 20 min black tea foot soaks helps with the smell allegedly, never tried it, so ymmv.

As to why they sweat so much, it's probably hyperhidrosis, which is a fancy way of saying overactive sweat glands. Usually it's hereditary, kicking in around puberty. I have a couple of family members who suffer from it. They are otherwise healthy except for the excessive sweating. There may be other medical causes, especially if it occurs later in life, but usually has other symptoms with it at some point.

Edit: a typo

u/Oranos_Rex · 1 pointr/internetparents

It sounds similar to something a friend of mine with a similar problem got. He said he had to apply it every now and then at night and it would stop sweating but that it also caused a stinging sensation - from the reviews that doesn't seem to be the case, and it also seems to be put on each night and then keeps you dry all night, but could you just add your 2 cents on how it feels when applying it/how long it lasts for?

Some shooters at USPSA use ProGrip. I haven't used it, so I have no idea how good it is...

I use this occasionally (usually the night before shooting) and it's worked well for me to reduce palm sweat.

I don't have profuse hand sweat though, it's more mild. Like doesn't affect me any other times, but my hands get a little slick when gripping a gun and it's hot out, and having them dry improves my grip/control significantly. I'm not sure how well the above things would work if the sweat is really bad, but hopefully that helps.

u/Slggyqo · 2 pointsr/MurderedByWords

Other steps:

Don’t grow more body hair than you’re willing to support.

Use extra strength anti-perspirant, not a deodorant. (I’ve heard this shit works wonders, never tried it myself. my sweat doesn’t smell unless I go HARD. East Asian Genetics what.)

A deodorant that is designed to STOP sweating has worked for me in the past, and I have the same problem as you - whatever I do, I sweat within hours of being clean. I use https://www.amazon.com/Driclor-Antiperspirant-Roll-on-75ml/dp/B001TU1EPU

Smelly penis? Try putting shower gel on it whilst it's dry, just for a minute or so before you shower. Seems to make it cleaner in my experience.

Shower in the morning! Showering at night means you've then got 8 hours of smell buildup as you get hot and bothered in bed before you see anyone.

Also shower every day... Seriously, you're in the minority if you don't bathe every day? You're not ill, or a lazy teenager so..?

Good luck!

Oxyclean in the wash.

To prevent discoloration in the pits of the tops, stop using antiperspirant deodorant. Use something like Odaban at night and regular deodorant during the day.

Beyond that, buy new ones more frequently.

I had hyper hydrosis but in the armpits

There is a prescription strength antiperspirant called certain dri that was the only thing short of surgery that worked for me. It’s active ingredient is aluminum though which I’ve read can be a factor in causing dementia. So there’s that.

Pro tip DO NOT put it on after the shower! Hurts like a bitch because it instantly shrinks your pores.

u/littlelurker123 · 1 pointr/ftm

I've always been a sweaty buggers, mostly on the underarms. I use a strong ass anti perspirant called Driclor which you apply overnight. It can be a bit irritable to the skin if yours is very sensitive but it tends to be okay for me.

In the past I've tried Sweat block and Perspi-Guard but found Driclor was by far the most effective and least irritable.

u/j0dd · 2 pointsr/Fitness

have you ever heard about hyperhidrosis?

i went through a similar experience - underarms sweating profusely even if i was sitting entirely still. odaban was the only product i ever found to ever cure it. i have to re-use it maybe a few times throughout the year and i'm fine. i definitely encourage you to consult with your family/doctor/whomever before committing to this product, but i thought i'd share it with you regardless. i know how frustrating it can be.

edit: you may want to stop the preworkout for now to see if that helps, or at least switch brands.

u/maxfliddh · 2 pointsr/leaves

This totally happened to me, even after 3-4 weeks. Can't explain it but I totally got this product SweatBlock and that works.

Shave your arms + I highly, highly, highly recommend sweatblock. I'm a personal stylist and have a lot of bigger clients who are always "running hot" and sweating. This has been a gamechanger for them.

u/FreeLachman · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Certain Dri doesn't work for me so tried [Driclor] (http://www.amazon.com/Driclor-Antiperspirant-Roll-on-75ml/dp/B001TU1EPU) and it is AMAZING!!! You apply it every day until you stop sweating and then you only need to apply it every so often to keep you from sweating. I used to sweat even in the winter time and in the summer it was just awful, I could barely make it out of the house. I only switched to Driclor a few months ago and it's been a game changer, my armpits never sweat anymore.

I use SweatBlock wipes. You only have to use one a week, and the antiperspirant lasts the whole time. They're a little pricey, but you get an 8 week supply. They also work really well if you get sweat between your thighs in the summer.

u/gwh21 · 1 pointr/adderall

this stuff is the best i used to just be sitting around in bed on a normal day and my armpits would sweat through my shirt.

first week i went 2 days in a row using this product and (mon/tues) and on wednesday my armpits were dry as a bone. If you do take that route, lay off the deodorant for a couple days. after that first go, one spray on a wednesday or thursday night would keep me almost sweat free all week.

and one bottle will last roughly 4-5 months in my experience.

u/cesiumk · 7 pointsr/LifeProTips

Apply Certain Dri the night before. Put on your favorite smelling deodorant (not antiperspirant) in the morning.

u/isendra3 · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Are your undershirts full tee shirts, or "wife-beaters" ? Try switching between the two to see if that helps. Also, for sweat in the underarm area, try an adhesive underarm pads

u/hitforhelp · 1 pointr/Hyperhidrosis

Driclor
Certain-dry
Anhydrol Forte

All these products are for topical application to help deal with HH. I have personal experience with both driclor and anhydrol forte and both work. My only complaint with using them is when applied on my feet or underarms it can produce a stinging sensation. Once applied and working I also sometimes feel a tightness on my hands and feet when they are trying to sweat but cannot.
This said it is worth it for the cost of the product and treatment results.
They may not be the 30% you are after but I can confirm that they work even at 20%.

u/tallbrahh · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

IN my experience, deoderants will never stop you sweating. They stop you smelling.

You need a product that prevents you from sweating. I have been using DriClor for 6+ years now

I have had ZERO armpit sweat in my time using it. It's a big confidence booster.

u/GiftTag · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

Personally, the last thing I want to wear in super-hot weather is a lot of layers of makeup. I like products that help to limit perspiration, like Mehron No Sweat liquid or Neat 3B Face Saver gel. Or both. A little tenacious foundation over that like Revlon Colorstay, a TINY bit of loose powder pressed over that with a puff, and that's it. No primer, no layering powder under stuff, just keepin' it simple.

u/the_great_pazuzu · 6 pointsr/malefashionadvice

If you're looking to actually stop sweating, i'd go for Certain Dri. This stuff works VERY well, and you would want to put it on before you sleep. Putting on too much could cause your armpits to feel like they're on fire too. It has aluminium chloride in it, so if that ain't your thing you'll want to look elsewhere.

I have a bad underarm sweating problem that happens pretty much no matter what I’m doing. I found this product a few years back called Sweat Block on amazon and it has been a game changer. It’s like a moist towelette that you apply before bed and it last a good week or two before you have to reapply. I would give it a try as when I use it I don’t sweat at all anymore.

​

I tend to sweat a lot more than others, especially on my entire face and came across this product. Does anyone have any experience with this? Isn't aluminum bad for you, ie. anti-perspirant for your armpits because they have aluminum in it?

u/YoAkihiko · 6 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I have Hyperhidrosis and was on the search for an OTC alternative for my prescription when it finally ran out, so I've tried a buuunch of antiperspirants. None of them really worked at all except for Driclor. It's definitely strong and if you shave your armpits prior to using it - then applying it will definitely sting, but if you're looking for a way to stop the excessive sweating then this is a godsend.

u/Georgious · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I have the same problem - my pits go NUTS at the mere hint of warmth. Even in the winter, it's a miserable situation. I've tried Certain Dri and a few other products, to no avail. Any colored shirts - even with undershirts and clinical antiperspirant in full effect - got blasted. Pure misery.

...Until I tried Sweatblock Wipes 3 weeks ago.

I shit you not, I have never been more impressed with a bodycare product in my life. I noticed results the next morning. You only apply once a week (I even skipped a week to see how long it would last, and two weeks worked in the NY Spring so far.) There's a slight menthol-y smell as you dab (not wipe/rub down as apparently this can burn) around the underarm hairline before you go to bed. It essentially re-routes your underarm sweat to the next possible outlet. Mine happens to be my head/neck area, which kind of sucks, but doesn't ruin clothing and is much easier to manage than armpit swamp.

TRY it. Literally changed my life. I'm curious to see how well it holds up in the steaming NYC summer, but for now it's unreal.

u/VindicoAtrum · 3 pointsr/manchester

Is it localised hyperhidrosis (occurs in certain areas only?) If so the answer is Driclor. Follow the instructions TO THE LETTER and within a week it'll be dealt with. Driclor replaces your anti-perspirant though.

If it's full-body... Eek, you have my condolences! Can't help there.

For those heavy sweaters out there, I use Sweatblock during the summer and it helps TREMENDOUSLY. It stings at first when you use it because it closes your pores, but I would much rather have 20 minutes of sting than everyone in the office wondering why I spill water under my arms every day.

I have sensitive skin so I was nervous about the whole thing, but it kept my face dry. I noticed you can’t put it on too thin or it won’t really be able to do its job, and you have to allow a few minutes to dry before adding makeup.

I had the same problem, I think pre workout and white monsters were the main factor that caused my excessive sweating. My whole shirt would be soaked, I would dread wearing blues, and it seemed like no OTC antiperspirant worked. I read some blogs and watch some youtube and found a clinical strength roll-on version called Driclor on Amazon and within a few days it stopped. I haven't had to use it for over a year, it's like your body just needs a reset. If that doesn't work, you may want to see the clinic and check your thyroid levels, etc.
