Excessive sweating can be caused by another underlying medical condition, sometimes sweating is caused by stress or some other trigger. Have you been to a physician about your sweating to see what your options are or what may be causing the sweating?
There are options that you have to maintain the sweating.
· Over-the-counter antiperspirants: Home remedies like these are usually tried first because they are readily available. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride (for example, Certain-Dri) may be more effective when other antiperspirants have failed. So-called "natural" antiperspirants are often not very helpful.
· Prescription-strength antiperspirants: those containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate
· Iontophoresis: a device which passes direct electricity through the skin using tap water
· Oral medications: from the group of medications known as anticholinergics, which reduce sweating
· Botox (botulinum toxin): approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating
· Surgery: cervical sympathectomy, as a last resort
