Around the age of 12, I began to notice that I sweat more than others. The only problem area was my underarms. I never had excessive back sweat or excessive sweat anywhere else. I must also make it clear that this sweat was NOT related to... (more)

Just a wild guess here, I'll try to synthesize info from a bunch of different stuff I've read. I know that one mechanism that your body uses to get rid of excess sugar is to send it out with your sweat (that's where the BO comes from: bacteria... (more)

I've been giving a lot of thought to not using anti-perspirants, but I have hyperhydrosis that affects my hands, feet and armpits. The hands and feet are manageable, but my concern is that if I use more "natural" methods for my underarms, I would... (more)

@ aegix, interesting question. There are several previous threads on hyperhidrosis, sweat and body odor. I added some tags to your question so you can follow the links. I don't recall if anyone mentioned trying iontophoresis. I have no personal... (more)

Okay, I have a dilemma here that I'd like the hackers' collective thoughts on. I have fairly problematic sweaty feet, for which there are no real convenient treatments. It's severe enough that I can't do as many "natural" things as I'd like to... (more)

I had a similar problem when I was a teen. I used the aluminum chloride solution for a couple years and then stopped using it. Somehow, I was fixed and no longer had the problem. I'm not sure if the solution eventually normalized the sweat glands,... (more)

I am a diehard paleo/primal person, no doubt. But, that being said, ive had seriously sweaty hands and feet my entire life. Eating strict paleo for over a year has done nothing to stop it. I still think paleo is THE way to eat and live. And i have... (more)
