    I am a teenager and have this Hyperhidosis extremely bad. I wear certain kinds of clothing to cover it up and try a lot of different antiperspirants to get rid of it or even reduce it to normal, but nothing has worked. I am very self conscience. I make sure I don’t touch people with my hands, wear flip-flops or open high heels, and regular T-shirts that will show my sweat stains. This really strains my daily life and makes it hard to be a regular teenager. I really want to get rid of this problem and move on with my life. Please help me.

    I am 11 and studying in the 6th grade. All of a sudden this year, I have started sweating everyday I go to school.
    Before I leave for school, I am perfectly fine and dry. But when I get to the school, I am soaked within the next 10 to 15 minutes.
    People have really started to notice this. What I don’t get is when I get home, I become dry again.
    As I am typing this now I am dry. I never sweat at home, only at school. It messes up my clothes.
