What helps with excessive sweating?

Basically, sweating is a healthy and normal reaction of the body. Every human being perspires – particularly at high temperatures, physical strain and also stress. Some persons, however, suffer from such excessive perspiration that it is simply annoying and unpleasant. Odor formation, fear of body contact and the glances others are constantly casting quickly become a permanent burden and restrict private and professional life.

Classical Deodorants

Many persons develop excessive perspiration in their youth. The time for well-intentioned advice like switching to a different deodorant or frequent change of clothes has long passed. Now some good advice is needed. The classical deodorants and household remedies primarily aim at reducing the odor and inhibit the production of sweat only to a limited degree.


It is significantly more effective to use so-called antiperspirants. As a rule, these contain aluminum chloride which constricts or blocks the sweat pores. This makes life easier for many afflicted persons. In some cases, however, the effect of the antiperspirants is not sufficient: the skin cannot tolerate the agent or there is a certain skepticism against its excessive and permanent use. By now at the very latest, it is time to see a medical professional.

Drugs and surgical therapies

In the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in case of severe cases, the physician relies on following therapies:

  • treatment with systemic drugs
  • injection of botulinum toxin
  • clamping the thoracic sympathetic nerve
  • removing of sweat glands

For good reasons, especially young people shun away from massive, possibly irreversible, interventions into their own bodies, not to mention the one-off or recurring cost.

The alternative - without additives and minimal side effects
