“How Can I Stop Sweating???” I’m sure you’ve asked yourself this question on many occasions in different ways…You know you’re frustrated when you’re talking to yourself :)

Well, if we’re going to break it down, there are essentially 2 main ways for you to stop sweating.  You can either use topical treatments or systemic treatments.  Pretty much every treatment falls into one of those two categories…have a look at the following:

Q: How Can I Stop Sweating? – Answer #1: Topical Treatments

Topical treatments involve all products you would apply directly to the skin to stop sweating.  The main one being over the counter antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride at 15-20%.  Aluminum chloride is the active ingredient which prevents the sweat from breaking through your skin.

Examples:  Certain Dri, Driclor, Mitchum, Hydrosal

The next step up in topical treatments is to get a prescription antiperspirant.  These contain the active ingredient aluminum chloride in concentrations between 20-40%!  If you go this route, speak to your Doctor about what your options are.  But one of the most popular prescription antiperspirants is Drysol.  You can also get a gel based antiperspirant which can be used on the face, hands and feet which is prescription(20-40%) by speaking to your Doctor.

Q: How Can I Stop Sweating? – Answer #2:  Systemic Treatments

Systemic treatments really get to the root of the problem in that they influence your systemic nervous system.  You see, your systemic nerves near your armpit signal your sweat glands to excrete sweat.  In those of us with Hyperhidrosis, these nerves tend to get a little trigger happy and cause us to sweat a bit too much.

One thing you can take to keep this under control are oral medications like anticholinergics, beta blockers, sedatives or tranquilizers.  Tranquilizers and sedatives work mainly in cases where the sweating is stress or anxiety related.  For all other cases, you’ll be looking at anticholinergics and beta blockers.

The only thing is with these treatments, there are many documented side-effects like dry-mouth, dizziness, constipation, problems sleeping and several others.  It’s for this reason you want to consider pills only after trying everything else.

It’s best you try a natural method first such as Stop Sweating and Start Living, this has worked well for thousands of people with sweating problems.  To check this treatment method out, click on this link.
