SweatingWe probably all know someone who sweats too much - or perhaps you are that someone. And whether you're in a crowded room with other people, out on the basketball court shooting hoops, or on a date with a special someone, having wet spots and a foul odor will only help you clear the room and make opponents of your teammates!

While excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, affects many people around the world today, there are a few things you can rely on to help you prevent the condition going forward. Take a look at a few of the pointers expert dermatologist Kristen Hafner offers for preventing hyperhidrosis below:

Use a prescription-strength antiperspirant deodorant.

You can easily find one at many leading grocery stores, and if they can't dry you up, you can check out some more powerful antiperspirant options from a trusted dermatologist.

Ask a dermatologist to administer electricity to the problem area(s).

Otherwise known as an iontophoresis procedure, this treatment option is both painless and without safety dangers. Typically reserved for when antiperspirants aren't getting the job done, iontophoresis procedures are a pretty safe bet for solving your sweatathons once and for all!

Practice relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation.

Having too much stress and anxiety can lead to hyperhidrosis, so learning how to temper all those negative pent-up emotions can lead to less sweat over the long haul.

Watch what you eat (and drink).

Oftentimes, the stuff we put into our bodies can cause excessive perspiration. Caffeinated sodas, spicy foods, and garlic are three of the biggest known culprits.

So if you're one of the millions of Americans today suffering from excessive sweating and are ready to put your perspiration-soaked days behind you, then it's time you put your faith in a trusted dermatologist like Kristen Hafner right here in Boynton Beach, FL!
