I am 24, and an in pretty good health/shape. When I turned about 19 or 20 I started to develop a huge armpit sweating problem. When I get even the slightest bit nervous, anxious, busy, or switch from a cool environment to a warm one, etc... My underarms begin to sweat like crazy. Within, literally, one minute, my shirt will have become stained. It is a very embarrassing problem... I have not worn a t-shirt, or color cardigan for over 3 years...I only wear tanktops... or in the winter I wear black cardigans...anything that does not show sweat. I am a teacher, and therefore like to dress nicely, and I hate the limitations that my problem causes me. I have tried strong, and prescription antiperspirants, but they either hurt way too much, or do nothing. Why has this started happening to me? How and When will it ever stop?
