Does Sweaty Underarms Trouble you?

Our body regulates the internal temperature by sweating. As sweat evaporates, heat is lost and the body cools down. Sweat by itself is mostly odourless, but when bacteria present on the skin acts on it, an odour is formed. Excessive underarm sweating is a problem for a lot of people because of the odour, staining of clothes and the social isolation it can cause. You can control it easily using a lot of options that are available.

Use an antiperspirant or deodorant: The deodorants help to control the odour that comes with underarm sweating while the antiperspirants help to stop underarm sweating for some time by blocking the sweat glands that are situated in your underarms.

Have your bath regularly: This helps to remove bacteria which cause body odour along with the dirt from your skin.

Wear clothes that helps you to improve air circulation and help keep your skin dry: Clothes made from natural fibres such as silk, wool, linen, hemp and cotton have a loose weave and allow air circulation to occur helping the sweat to evaporate quickly.

Modify your diet: Foods with a low fiber content force your digestive system to work overtime to break down your foods. A high-sodium diet means your body will be detoxing all that salt in the form of excess urine and sweat and eating foods that are high in fat causes your insides to warm as your body processes the fat. So, making changes in your diet could help reduce the amount that you perspire.

Drink plenty water: This reduces the body temperature decreasing the need to sweat.

If the above solutions don't give you the relief you need, your next option may be Botox injections. Botox injections which are known as botulinum toxin is injected under the arms in order to block the nerves that causes sweating. The treatment can last between five to six months, therefore the treatment needs to be repeated every 6 to 12 months.

Laser hair removal combined with Botox treatments can help you stay fresh, clean and odour free.
