Like many other people who have written on the board, I have suffered from excessive sweating under my arms since childhood. It is very embarracing.

I have been on a long journey. I tried the vaious over the counter deoderants however they have not proved to be effective. I've also tried the various deoderants you get from you GP to no success.

In September this year I had an operation, which was not invasive which consisted of using a liposuction technique under my arms. I was in and out in a day and did not have too much discomfort through the healing process, however this was not successful for me. The Consultant who recommended this had previously had a higher rate of success with it, but sadly not for myself.

I'm currently awaiting an operation to remove the sweat glands from under my arms, which I know is a bigger operation which carries greater risk however I feel that I have to give this surgery a try. I hope to update this with a positive note once my operation is complete.
