Cure For Sweaty Armpit

As I was perusing other articles to try to figure out exactly what to say when it comes to sweaty armpits, one article actually gave me pause. As unbelievable as it may seem, there has actually been a study done that revealed women found the sweaty smell of underarm odor relaxing and sexy. Well, I would have to agree that there is no other place many of us women would like to be, than cuddled up on the chest of our man - whether he's smelling a bit ripe or not. For the rest of the world, however, it seems that sweaty armpits are unseemly and a source of embarrassment for the rest of us.

I, personally, do not have much of a problem when it comes to sweat, unless I am stuck in the middle of an outdoor concert during a Midwestern heat wave. Then, I am not the only one who is sweating – everyone is! But, my husband happens to be the kind who gets the nasty armpit sweat just from walking around in a seventy-five degree, windy day. He, however, finds it extremely funny when he puts me in a nice, sweaty headlock. hey, I love the man, but there’s a fine line between love and gross!

There are a ton of ways to stop armpit sweat including include antipersperants, botox, oral medications, surgery, and iontophoresis.

Antiperspirants are usually more of a cover up when it comes to people with excessive sweat. Botox swells up the area and blocks sweat gland stimulation, but can be painful, of course. Just think – a needle going into your underarm – injecting you with bacteria. Yuck! Oral medications tend to want to help with stress relief and tension – which tend to be big triggers of sweating profusely. Surgery just removes the sweat glands completely, but this is very dangerous – since sweat glands are meant to cool down the body temperature. Without them, you may end up with dehydration.

As much fun and entertainment that injections and surgery can be, I have a feeling that I would much rather prefer the age old ways of finding the reason behind the symptoms – rather than disguising the symptoms and thinking I have got it under control. Liposuction can remove the sweat glands by a suction from under the skin. There are more than enough very good, sound advice out there that will propel you to find an actual solution – rather than to find a quick fix. Finding what works for you is the best way to safely find a solution to the problem, rather than fixing the symptoms.

So, if you happen to enjoy going home during your lunch break just to shower and change your shirt, then – by all means – go for it. If, however, you find it to be more than just a little bearable, you should get to your doctor and find out the different ways to help yourself. Try to get relief other non-invasive ways, before having to go the painful way. Trust me, your body will thank you!
