Customer Question

I have issues with sweating between my thighs. I am slightly overweight and carry fat on my thighs and buttocks. Besides trying to reduce my fat, what can I do? I wear cotton underwear, not synthetic.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I have not talked to my dr yet. I had been taking anti-depressants Prozac but have stopped just recently and actually that has helped somewhat. IS that a side effect of prozac?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no

Thank you for your question.

Heavy sweating in this area is a problem that is frequently encountered by many people around the world.

The first thing that I usually try is an antiperspirant like driclor which is pretty effective in a number of people.

I would recommend that you should try using driclor for a few weeks to see how it goes.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
