Underarm Sweating (axillary Hyperhidrosis)

Prevention

Hyperhidrosis itself is unpreventable, although for some, sweating may be reduced by avoiding exertion and other stimuli that lead to excessive sweating.

Product treatments: Basic, over-the-counter antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride derivatives may be suitable for those with milder cases of hyperhidrosis. Aluminum chloride is generally thought to be safe, and for more severe cases, antiperspirants with high concentrations of it may be prescribed by a dermatologist.
