fibromialgia and sweating

Posted , 3 users are following.

something simple from the food cupboard

i use good old cornflour on the inside of my thighs

under my bust and any were else i sweat heavy

its less iratating then talc powder

i first thought of this when i was buying

expensive talc free baby powder where the main ingredient

was cornstrach or corn flour, 

i also was told by afriend that for women who have serious dryness of the vagina thru the menopause that vitiman e capsual placed in side will sort the problem, she checked it with her gp , and he said it was perfectly fine.

      well thats something at least you havent got me down as a nutter,

      does make sense , i didnt no that about the navy, i read it in a book based in the early 50s before there were much in the way of antipersarents , there was deodarants , which didnt really keep you dry, i also found it in a war time household book,

      any way if you believe what they used to say, ladies dont sweat, they glow.  only thing is i glow like a green house tomato

      maybe a bit of both. still you need to have a sense of humour with all what we have to put up with, other wise your cross the line in to insanity.

    Great tip Tina! smile

    A word of caution for anyone who has a rash or redness in skinfolds, the use of cornstarch can encourage fungal infection so it is wise to get it looked at prior to using.

    I do find that I perspire more since I've had Fibromyalgia and will sometimes find my head and face running with moisture....considerably more than a glow redface

    Thanks for sharing your tips.

    Kind regards,
