sweaty arm pits-please help!
HI Ilse

I have had a bit of a sweating problem for the past year or so. Not sure if you are the person to talk to but i am rather desperate about this embarrasing problem i am having.

Wether its cold or hot outside i seem to sweat only under my arms so i end up with these patches under there. I am currently using speed stick. Should i simply change to another brand and if so which one is an excellent anti perspirant?

If you are not the right person to speak to please let me know who i an contact as i am rather desperate at this stage.

Thanks
Lucy

Hi Elize
Try Driclor or Perspirex ( get at pharmacies). You could also try Probanthine tablets. Last option is an operation called sympatectomy.
