What is considered excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating occurs when parts or all of your body sweats when it doesn’t need to. Excessive sweating can either be caused by a medical condition, a side effect of medication, a mental health condition such as anxiety or a hereditary condition called Hyperhidrosis.
Suppose your doctor has ruled out any medical conditions and diagnosed you with Hyperhidrosis. In that case, you’ll be pleased to know that there are many different ways to treat this condition, including over the counter remedies.
How do I get rid of excessive sweating?
Some treatment options and tips available to help Hyperhidrosis or any other excessive sweating include:
Antiperspirants that contain aluminium are available both over the counter and on prescription. If you need a stronger antiperspirant than others, try opting for one that has at least 13% aluminium chloride.
Vitamin D supplements
Vitamin D supplements can help with excessive sweatiness as many people are unaware they are deficient, and one of the first symptoms is having a sweaty head. Another vitamin that may help is B12, which has been shown to minimise symptoms of Hyperhidrosis when injected by a doctor. Be sure to talk to your doctor before adding supplements to your diet, as they can interfere with the medication you may be taking.
Avoid certain foods in your diet
Avoid certain foods and drinks such as alcohol, caffeine, garlic, onions, processed foods and spicy foods.
Include certain foods in your diet
Eat foods that help, such as bananas, almonds, olive oil, oats, green tea, water, sweet potatoes and fruits and vegetables with high water content.
Stop smoking as smoking raises your overall body temperature causing excessive sweating.
Botox injections have been proven to treat excessive sweating in the armpits as the neurotoxin blocks communication from the nerves causing excessive sweating.
