Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Excessive sweating in medical terms is called hyperhidrosis.This is due to overactive sweat glands.Certain conditions can cause excessive sweating:hyperthyroidism,anxiety,diabetes,Parkinson's disease,certain infections,glucose control disorders.

This is not related to your lung surgery or complication of pneumonia.Also this cannot be due to taking too many of vitamins.

Following is recommended for you now:

  • You need products containing 10% to 15% aluminum chloride hexahydrate are the first line of treatment.It act as antiperspirants.
  • Anticholinergics drugs may be prescribed.
  • Botox is also used for the treatment of excessive sweating.
  • There is a very effective over the counter antiperspirant available that is based on a colorless alcoholic solution containing aluminium chloride hexahydrate. It is available by name :Driclor and Anhydrol Forte. It is available as OTC without prescription & will help you greatly.

If still after this,the symptoms of excessive sweating persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment.

Thank you.
