    Certain Dri works great! I perspire excessively as well and I think a lot of it is due to nerves. I have taped ABD pads to my armpits when faced with social situations that it's absolutely imperative that I do not perspire through clothing, but it's too cumbersome for everyday life.

    Almost everybody is making t-shirts out of moisture wicking fabric. I wear the jockey t-shirts they were on sale.


    Not prefect but helps.

    Nice link, my only complaint is the selection for men. Boxers and briefs are the only two options, it would be nice if they had a man-thong option available.

    My Dad has this problem and the only thing that finally worked for him was Botox injections. Ask your doctor about it, it completely worked for my Dad. Good luck.

    Botox works great. I'm a RN injector and I do this all the time. You will probably have compensatory sweating elsewhere but all of my patients don't care. It looks like in the future there will be a topical Botox for hyperhydrosis so people won't have to get all those injections. It is fairly expensive-I charge $1000 because you use a whole vial of Botox. If you have insurance and have tried all of the prescription products the insurance might pay for it if you go to a derm. The nice thing is it lasts 9-12 months so you don't have to do it too often! Good luck!

    I've heard that Botox works really well too. As for stains - use an antiperspirant that doesn't contain aluminum - that's what causes the stains!

    "So, you may get your underarms to stop sweating only to have your butt crack compensate (for example)." That was funny!
    So, is that 1000 bucks a year for Botox? Yikes?

    What works well as a daily for people who just sweat when under pressure?

    OP - I sure hope you found something cost effective that worked for you.

    im raising this thread from the dead.

    I use robinul, prescribed by a dermatologist for excessive sweating. works like a charm! moved back to hawaii from sf and the humid weather kills me.

    the only thing is that you can get some dry mouth, i just eat gum to combat that. other than the dry mouth it works wonders.
