Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to have few important details. Do you have any problem with excessive sweating? History of diabetes or thyroid disorder? Any medical illness do you have?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have excessive sweating problem that I've been even prescribe a night roll on for by the dermatologist but I don't sweat like that anymore like I used to but it still happening
Expert:  Dr. Amir replied 2 years ago.

Thanks for getting back to me. I would like to say that there is a treatment called Iontophoresis which is treatment uses low level electrical impulses to temporarily disable the sweat glands. This will further reduce the weired smell. I will strongly suggest to reduce intake of garlic, onions and spices as sometimes we are more sensitive to these which can reflect in our body fluids smell. Drink plenty of clear fluids, take fresh fruits a lot which will be helpful. I will also suggest to take vitamin B complex. I would also like to have few important tests such as fastening blood sugar level, thyroid function tests please ask your physician to do these.

Ok even tho I don't over sweat anymore,you still think I should get my gland disable temporarily? For the test I will do that to see how it goes
Expert:  Dr. Amir replied 2 years ago.
I think that would be helpful in the long run and sometimes botox injection can be helpful in the sweat glands. Yes I will highly advise to have these tests and follow the guidelines which I have given you will find these helpful.
