It is not perspiration that’s the actual problem, but the stains that it leaves behind. Tight fitting clothing is completely soaked within a few minutes. Dark patches under the arms, on the stomach, back or collar cannot be concealed... Any person who perspires quickly and excessively should first consult a doctor to determine the possible cause. This is because the hyperactivity of the sweat glands may have underlying causes, such as hormonal irregularities and also possibly hyperactivity of the thyroid gland. Heavy perspiration is often observed as an undesired side effect of medication. Being overweight and some other physical problems can also be diaphoretic. To fight constant perspiration the use of special sprays is advised. These sprays can be found in all pharmacies. According to British dermatologists, one which has proved itself above the rest is Odaban, developed by an English pharmacist. This cosmetic came onto the market over 35 years ago and has helped millions of people. Previously Odaban was only obtainable overseas, but it is now also available over the counter at pharmacies in South Africa. It is particularly effective for excessive underarm perspiration and very sweaty hands and feet. By applying it to a cosmetic pad or cotton wool it can also be used on the face and other sensitive areas of skin.
What the doctor says:
Dermatology and allergology specialist, Dr Adriane Visan, in Germany: “I prefer to treat hyperhidrosis with aluminium chloride preparations rather than other forms of therapy. In particular remedies that have been on the market for decades have proved themselves in practise and have given millions of people improved quality of life.” Before one resorts to drastic or even operative treatment methods out of desperation, one should give Odaban a try.
