Question: Has anyone heard of formalin used to prevent excessive sweating? A friend told me that he was given a diluted formalin years ago to apply on feet and palms for a week and he stopped sweating in those areas for over 6 years and now it's coming back. If you know of this please let me know how much to use, how to dilute it and where to get it. Thank you and God bless you all.
I started using CBD (Hemp) oil for fibromyalgia a week and a half ago. I live where the temp is 90's +. I have serious hyperhidrosis of the head and face. I would sweat til my shirt would be wet just in a few minutes of walking outside or just getting into my car. Since starting the oil, I have barely sweated. I have suffered for many years of trying everything I could possibly find or hear about to help me. Not only has it helped my pain, it has made me not panic at the idea of being outside in the heat or even using a hair dryer!
I started using iodine/iodide and my hyperhydrosis disappeared. I no longer suffer from excessive sweating on my hands and feet and I no longer have cold extremities.
I suddenly developed severly smelly underarm sweat. The smell would reoccur even while I was in the shower. The smell was "hormony" and could fill a room, and was not helped by deodorant, salt crystals or vinegar.
In desperation I dabbed a small amount of reconstituted lemon juice and it worked wonders. Smell gone, even from the clothes that seemed to reactivate the odour on contact.
Initially I had to put it on three times a day, but within a week once a day is enough. I cannot wait to see what real lemon will do for the problem.
I now dab and then pat a little drop in all parts of the body that develop odours.. "the crack", under breasts and groin.
I have been informed that to just be careful that a rash does not develop due to the acid mantel of the skin being disrupted. Three weeks in, I had no rashes and no odour.
I have excessive sweating, it randomly happened about a year ago on my under arms and hands. Doctor First prescribed drysol, smelled like alcohol and i would apply it over night and would wear gloves to sleep. That stopped working so I was given motion sickness patches which really dried out my mouth but worked really well except i had to change it out every3 days. I bought liquid chlorophyll and sage fluid extract. a spoon full of the chlorophyll and 1ML (eye dropper with measurement) into a glass of orange juice a day and my hands and under arms are dry. its summer so i do sweat, but my hands are dry and my underarms. I also drink a glass of apple cider vinegar a day for over all health, but this may also be helping.

I realized the reason magnesium doesn't work for some ppl with excessive sweat is because of the type and the amount.
Magnesium citrate is best, capsules not tablets, but tablets will do. Open the capsules don't swallow them whole.
When I take only about 400 mg, nothing happens. Still sweat all day heavily under my arms. When I take 800mg I'm dry all day, but you do have to do it everyday so yeah hope this helps.
I have suffered from hyperhidrosis for 35+years. Nothing helped and I tried everything. I experienced my first panic attack one month ago. After researching found out about magnesium citrate. I will make it simple. I take 1200mg of magnesium citrate (400 mg 3x a day).
I also take calcium 1000mg (500 mg 2x a day) And I also take a vitamin b complex once a day. You have to build up your tolerance for magnesium so start with 400mg per day and work your way up. For me this worked. Do your research. Magnesium deficiency and hyperhidrosis go hand in hand.
For years I was plagued with excessive sweating and oily skin, especially facially, which doesn't work for a lady. I spent 100s of dollars on all kinds of toners, matifiers and mineral makeup and such to no avail. Had to resort to blotting my face of excess oil frequently. Recently I started to take oral Mg in addition to Mg spray that I was already on for fibromyalgia type body aches and recurrent tendinoses. Surprisingly enough, my excessive sweating and oily face seems to have gone poof too, along with a plethora of health issues that had me partially disabled. Who knew? It's a yay for me.
I've been taking magnesium citrate, the fizzy power, for 3 weeks moving from a teaspoon to a tablespoon a day pretty quickly. It has not resolved the faucets under my arms. I notice improvement with sweating only when I'm not being social, nervous or excited. For example, I usually get to work with sweat already working a nice wet circle into my clothing. I can get to work dry now which is great, but unfortunately as soon as I begin any interaction with people on the phone or in the office, pit circles graduate. So it's a NAY for me... but could offer hope to others.
Hello all, Excessive sweating is associated with magnesium deficiency. I used to sweat all the time (summer/ winter, hot/ cold) and went to all sorts of doctors to find out what's going on. Nothing helped. Then I started taking magnesium supplements once daily and it works miracles. Give it about 3-4 days to start working. Good luck!

I had hyperhidrosis from the age of 16 to the age of 56. While my hyperhidrosis was embarrassing, I had the kind that is a symptom of chronic fatigue syndrome. This kind makes you sweat, but the sweat has no scent.
At 56 I was doing a copper detox and noticed my hyperhidrosis had went away. I started checking my supplements to see which one had done this. I found two. It seems a deficiency in molybdenum can cause hyperhydrosis. For the detox I was taking 400 mcg a day. I was also taking bamboo extract to detox aluminum. Bamboo extract is high in silica. A deficiency of silica can cause hyperhidrosis. My bamboo extract supplement is 300 mg. I started doing the bamboo and molybdenum at about the same time and it was about three months of taking them that I noticed my hyperhidrosis was gone.

Exessive palm and feet sweating: I've been having this problem since childhood. I'm now 53 and still have issues, especially when it is hot humid, but I still sweat in the winter too. I've tried commercial treatments as well as, ACV, sage tea and pills, soaking with tea and so forth, nothing really helped. Does anyone know an effective remedy for this please? Shaking hands, holding hand for prayer is very very uncomfortable. Thank you.
I am 30 year old woman, but as a teen I had terrible problems with armpit sweating. The best antiperspirants seemed to act as sweat enhancers! My armpits were clean-shaven, but my deodorant / antiperspirants still didn't work well. And, I bought the strongest that had rugged, outdoorsy, exercising men in their advertisements! One day, I decided to try waxing my armpits. I didn't want to put my harsh yet poor working antiperspirant on right after, so I rubbed some aloe vera gel & tea tree oil on instead, just so I wasn't stinking. What a difference! The sweating was probably 10% of what it had been, & that was with no antiperspirant! It's like if I have hair in the follicles, I sweat awfully & if they're totally removed, I don't. I find the easiest & most convenient method to do this to use a hair plucking device. I use it weekly. This is really worth trying if you have a sweating problem, want to use a more natural deodorant, or have a BO problem. Although I know it doesn't cure ones odor, the possibility of sweating less certainly can't hurt.
If you're interested in more natural deodorants for whatever reason, read forums & try several if your first doesn't work. The glycerin natural deodorants have never worked for me personally, but some people love them. My personal favorite is the crystal stone. For some reason, the spray & roll-on versions don't work nearly as well. Note about the stone: when it states wet the stone prior to use, it isn't kidding. I find it doesn't work without putting the actual stone in water, even if my armpits are freshly "wet" from the shower. Hope some of this helps!

Raw, unpasteurized sauerkraut for sweating - this has helped me tremendously!! I think there must be a relationship between fungus in the body and constant sweating - check this remedy out! I would start with about 1/2 to 1 tsp and work your way up to taking more!
I've been dealing with excessive sweating all of my life and for once I have found something I can rely on. My sweating usually is triggered by social anxiety/stage fright and have been taking many supplements for it including magnesium, b vitamins, fish oil, coconut oil, acv, holy basil, ginger, 5 htp, multi vitamins, beta blockers, baking soda, borax for detox, and others I'm forgetting. I'm a work in progress but have finally found sage is affordable and has the drying capabilities I've been searching for. I boil one big pot if the dry herb and drink about 2 cups give or take a day. I shave my head so the sweat used to just roll off my head neck. I also started to spray witch hazel on my head which also keeps me dry. Between the two I think I am able to feel more comfortable in social settings. Good luck and keep trying new avenues.
