    Sweating

    I've have always had a problem with excessive sweating from the top of my head,(This is where it begins), to the bottom of my feet. I have seen several doctors about this and all they have to say that it's ok, but it's not ok when you cannot do anything without sweating all down your face and your hair flops because it is dripping wet. Some people say it's hot, but this will happen in the middle of winter as soon as I begin to exert myself to the form of just serving food at a gathering, going to the park, any kind of dancing. These times are always so embarrassing. I have never been able to enjoy the quality of life because of this. If anyone has a solution to this,please reply.

    Dear Anonymous,
    There is a medication that I give my patients who have excessive sweating. It is called glycopyrrolate, and it has changed people's lives. Go to see a dermatologist to get an evaluation. Also see the website SweatHelp.org. Good luck.
