sweating mystery

i have been sweating in my inner thigh and groin area ,and i have night sweats for about four years now.
i don't have any visible rash or skin condition, i have been to dermatolagist,endocronoligist and a
neuroligist and they have no idea what's wrong. i recently visited a immunologist, she took some skin test,
she told me that i was allergic to alot things, could my sweating come from alergies (allergies).

                                                                                                          please help

Hi,

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which may be attributed to neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases. Excessive sweating may also be a symptom of menopause. Are there other signs or symptoms present? Do you have history of allergies prior to the skin tests? Allergic symptoms usually do not manifest as excessive sweating along the inner thigh and groin area. Though there are available medications that could help with the excessive sweating, procedures such as iontophoresis and cervical sympathectomy may be done.

Take care and keep us posted.

If your docotr told you that you are allergic to a lot of things, what were those things? Because take it from someone who went through all this already for years and fixed the sweating issue.
Allergies to synthetics do cause sweating. Doctor above reminds me of some other doctors, prescribe a drug, instead of giving you the right answer. He said usually they don't cause a lot of sweating, so just take this pill for all sweating disorders. Nah,,, you want to find the culprit right?
What does doc mean by excessive anyway? Pouring off you in buckets? I mean if an allergy makes you sweat, then it does. He said not excessive. Meaning it does. And it does.
Now you need to find out what is the allergen you are exposed to. Well duh! What else touches your thighs, and groin area? Or touch your groin and spreads down to your thighs? Your panties. Polyester my friend!
Oh noooo, I said it. Allergy to polyester! Don't everyone freak out now. Lord knows if this info gets out and they find out it is what is actually causing all break outs. Then the ointment sales will plummit!
