As Summer Heats Up, New Survey Reveals Need for Effective Sweat Treatments
Date:6/18/2008

style to cope, for example, by avoiding certain clothing or activities. Executive director of the IHHS, Lisa Pieretti, says, "Many people do not realize that excessive underarm sweat is a treatable medical condition, therefore going undiagnosed and untreated. People do not have to alter their lifestyle to accommodate or suffer in silence; many physicians, specifically dermatologists, specialize in the treatment of excessive underarm sweat, offering a range of treatments from prescription strength topical antiperspirants to BOTOX(R) (Botulinum Toxin Type A) injections."

Most U.S. adults who think they have too much underarm sweat (70%) go to various lengths to hide or prevent their underarm sweat -- mostly altering activities (47%) and clothing choices (49%). For example, the survey found that about a third of those who think they have too much underarm sweat avoid raising their arms (35%) and others avoid hugging or putting their arms around people (18%) and participating in sports and athletic activities that may induce sweating (17%). Some even try and avoid giving presentations at work or school (5%) for fear of revealing underarm sweat stains. Additionally, they make clothing choices based on too much underarm sweat -- avoiding certain fabrics (25%), avoiding some colors (21%) and frequently choosing others (e.g., black) (19%), carrying additional clothing (12%) and changing clothes several times daily (11%).

To help both excessive sweaters and normal sweaters stay dry in the hot, humid weather, the IHHS (visit the Society online at http://www.SweatHelp.org) has compiled the following list of summer survival tips.

-- Drink early, drink often, and drink again -- thirst is simply a sign your fluid levels are already low. Sweat plays a critical role in keeping your body cool in hot temperatures. The key to keeping this internal air conditioning system working properly is drinking enough fluid
