Hi, my name is Andi Thompson and I am a 15 year old teenage girl.
For the last 18 months or so I have been suffering with excessive sweating, but more specifically craniofacial hyperhidrosis.
I've researched on things that I can do to prevent it from happening, but I know that my parents wouldn't allow me to use drugs or botox or surgery to remove my sweat glands. I feel as though I am running out of options.
I don't know if I have anxiety issues as well, which is what my sweating may be linked to, but I am a very anxious person and the slightest thing could set me off into a panick.
The strange thing is, as stressed as I might be, I never never sweat in my own home, ONLY at school-or places where I don't feel comfortable (mainly school).
This is why I am terrified about going in to school every day, and even when it's a chilly winter day in December, I would step into the classroom and immediately begin to sweat.
People laugh, and whisper and talk about me. My own friends are starting to think me weird.
It affects my life so badly, I've had to stop going to orchestra as my hands get so sweaty it's hard to hold my violin.
Please, please, help me.
