How do you guys deal with hyperhidrosis? I find it to be very embarrassing when people call me out and it makes me feel not normal and gross

        @Destinyjoy Botox injections in armpit do help. It helps me have relief for about 4 months and I used to sweat in my armpits perfusely. I do sweat under my boobs too but I make sure to keep the area dry and even apply deodorant there

          @BeeDandelion is that the only place they will do it? Cuz its my hands and feet also so bad that I'm constantly dropping my phone and sliding out of my shoes that aren't tennis shoes lol

      I just discovered 1 month ago that I do have hiperhidrosis and now I'm treating myself, however it was gross when i didn't have any idea that was a problem and a lot of people sow me like a unormal person, it was tough in that time but now I could tell them that I have hiperhidrosis, and I could shake their hands with my sweating hand, just like a normal person.

      I get botox every 6 months as done by my dermatologist in my armpits for hyperhidosis and it has really helped. I have been doing this at least 2 years now. I do sweat in other parts of my body but the huge fear of it being from my armpits and soaking through shirts was incredibly stressful

      I feel you. I walk for like 5 minutes and I’m dripping every where… I’ve tried multiple meds and topicals but haven’t worked out. Currently waiting on a new topical to try. Def reach out to a dermatologist

      I feel the same way when people point it out I often put deodorant on my hands and feet to try and help combat the sweat I just constantly Try to remind myself that it's a medical condition and I can't help it I also educate those who point it out and let them know it's a condition.
