    This may/may not be helpful but i realised that using deodorant made me sweat more. Ever since ive stopped using it I have felt that I sweat no where near as much and am benefiting greatly from it. I suffer from anxiety too. The winter months are beneficial for me as I dont sweat and am not embaressed in public with bulging sweat patches.

      Yeah, I have noticed that too! I am not getting treated for anxiety, but I have been suffering panic attacks lately, and have had random sweating spells when I am anxious. The funny thing about it is that I naturally do not sweat much. Seriously, I grew up in a very hot climate, and everyone else would be sweating- but not me. I also have an autoimmune disease that limits my ability to sweat! Yet, if I get worked up about something, I start pouring sweat like I was in a steam room.  Ive given up on deodorant. It does nothing to help, except mask the scent when I do sweat. I’ve noticed it has reduced since I stopped using deodorant. It never occurred to me that it could be related.
