I'm constantly socially anxious..and i sweat all the time. its disgusting. i get so beyond nervous walking around people that my underarms are like a waterfall. it makes me even more paranoid because im constantly checking my shirt, and i cant even wear any tops without sweat coming through. so worrying about that makes my anxiety kick in double time. its extremely embarassing because no matter what i do, i cant stop the sweating. any suggests?

Behind these eyes,

I'm sorry you have to worry about that with what you already have to deal with....its always something right...

Not sure if you tried this, but secret has a new deodorant that is really strong. You may want to look into that, not sure what the title of it is. may be called secret clinical, something like that I have a friend who uses it.

Just hang in there

Hello and I am sorry you have this problem.  May I suggest you think about seeing a dermatologist. This is a problem that happens to other people too. You may be able to get a medicated producted that will help you control the over active sweat glands.
Take care and keep psoting.

Hey I am sorry you have this for my sis and I both have been thru this . It comes and goes and it sucks!!!!
In fact at one point I had mostly dark color clothes cuz of the fear of sweat.
We tried a product called "certain dri" and it worked wonders for me. it helped with my sis but she still has some swaeting problems but not near as bad as they were. I would say it is worth trying!

Good luck!

Hey, I'm sorry you are suffering through this...I've had the same problem at times..I once fell asleep while reading a book and when I woke up the next day it was growing mould because I had got it that damp...totally gross!! 
 
I find, oddly, that it helps to drink lots of water (sounds wierd I know) but it seems to keep you cooler and make the sweat that does come out less odourous.  It seems you are getting a lot of good deoderant advice so I won't even bother with that! Good luck with all the advice coming your way xxxx
I alone can do this, but I cannot do it alone.

there are various products around, its worth speaking to a doctor about over the counter products. There are things that freeze the glands, like a spray sort of thing that is just available in chemists. Also, i find with me, simple things like powder can help, although its not a big help, but you might find it does something.
i really hope you can find help with it, i know from experience it is really hard to deal with

LOL I hit the wrong button before i finished my last post, LOL
I just glad to find a post about the sweating cuz I have been going thru it too! I have tried powder and other things but they dont work and since crying said it worked and you too, Im going to have to try it. It has been a problem that I dont like to talk about cuz it seems most people act like girls are not supposed to sweat, lol
