Sweat that is ruining my life(Help)

Hi @ppp. Having an overactive perspiration problem is the pits, isn’t it? Pun intended! I suffered from this for most of my teen and early adult life. Growing up, I wore clothes with printed fabrics that wouldn’t show the huge wet stains on my back or under arms. PE in high school, where we had to learn social dancing, was horrifically embarrassing having to hold hands with strangers. Anxiety played a big roll at the time.
As an adult female, I learned a few tricks like finding some antiperspirants that actually do work. There were times I applied it across my forehead under my makeup to keep me from perspiring at special events. So I feel your pain.

I found an interesting article this morning talking about excessive sweating and some of the potential causes and treatments to help make life normal again. Occasionally there can be underlying medical causes. So it wouldn’t hurt to talk this over with your primary care provider.
A dermatologist is your best bet for getting long term treatment options.
Here’s the article that was on Yahoo today. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/signs-of-excessive-sweating-222345169
I hope you find some relief! Have you discussed this with a doctor?

Thank you so much for your information,i have extra sweat only on my tailbone area and not much on other parts,and i had pilonidal cyst about 4 years ago and it healed,i thought it was it for a long time,but it hasnt any pus or blood in it,i am now concerned because it isn't a full body thing and its just in that tailbone area
