I never used to sweat, but now I'm soaked!

 
A few months ago, my underarm perspiration majorly increased. I used to never sweat, but now, it's happening every day. I have to always put my hands on my hips, because if they are glued to my sides, like they usually are, I sweat! My mom has done everything to help me out, buying me fancy soaps and antiperspirants, but nothing works. Please help!
 
Dr. Dee Anna Glaser says, “It sounds like you have hyperhidrosis, which affects about 3 percent of the population.  When the underarms are affected, it usually starts around age 14 to 16.  It has nothing to do with soaps, bathing or cleaning habits.  We think it runs in families.
 

“You can try a clinical strength antiperspirant, which should be applied at night before you go to bed.  You can reapply it in the morning for extra results.  If this doesn't give you relief, it is time to see a dermatologist for prescription medications.”

You can get more information about hyperhidrosis at sweathelp.org.
