Sudden Underarm Sweating
2 weeks ago, I suddenly had a problem with my underarms sweating throughout the day.  Not a ridiculous amount, but enough to create a 2" in diameter sweat stain in my under shirt at the end of the day.  There is no B.O. involved, just perspiration.  There have been no life changes that could have caused this.  No stresses, no weight changes, etc.

I have tried numerous types of deodorant (Gillette Gel, Right Guard Clinical, etc) to no avail.

I have even changed my shower gel, which didn't work.

I am 30 years old.

This was an overnight thing, nothing gradual.

Thanks.

Hello,

You seem to be having secondary hyperhidrosis.It can be due to part of an underlying condition like Hyperthyroidism or similar endocrine diseases and dermatological conditions like eczema or psoriasis. Treatment usually involves antiperspirants like aluminium chloride (20-25%) in 70-90% alcohol, Iontophoresis (applying low intensity electric to the skin immersed in an electrolyte solution), botox treatment and surgery if none of the above methods are helpful. There are no specific drugs available for this.

Pls consult a dermatologist to find out the confirmatory diagnosis as treatment depends on the same.

Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.Kind regards.
