I was diagnosed with hyperhidrosis back when I was 20. Now 26. Recently been working with a doctor to finally find the underlying cause of my condition. As I’m not convinced I’m a primary hyperhidrosis sufferer, rather potentially thyroid issues.
My hyperhidrosis only comes on when I’m in hot weather due to my extreme heat intolerance, or a situation that makes me nervous. It seems that hyperhidrosis sufferers, sweat constantly. I do not… Are there any hyperhidrosis sufferers who are heat intolerant? Seems to be more of a thyroid problem.
It also recently started sweating in more places. Originally was armpits, back, feet. Now I sweat from, head(forehead, nose, cheeks), chest, abdomen, crotch, armpits, back, feet and sometimes my hands. This is very rare with the hands. So now I fall in the catogery of generalized sweating.
I have and still use for my sweating. I used to apply it to my back and armpits for quite some time, I never experienced any compensatory sweating from using it. My dermatologist told me that I wouldn’t get any compensatory sweating from using it, and I feel like it would have shown up much quicker. Like I said I used it for 2+ years without noticing compensatory sweating. Would such extreme compensatory sweating show in my case? If Drysol does cause compensatory sweating, does it stop when you don’t apply Drysol anymore? As I still sweat in the newer areas when I’m not using it.
Love to hear some advice from other out there. Thanks guys
