Curing Sweaty Feet And Hands

If you are searching for a cure for sweaty feet then you will be glad to hear that there are plenty of choices at store for you. You can choose some methods depending on your budget but there are also some cures that can be done without spending money.

All you need to do is to remove the inappropriate practices or habits that can be a reason in having sweaty feet. There are many but below are the most common examples of them.

You should wash your feet as often as you can. Making them wet during shower is not enough. You should really clean or scrub them to reduce the presence of bacteria. There are people who only clean their upper body as the soap never reaches the lower part of their foot. Also, you should wear shoes that provide air circulations. You may want to let your feet breathe.

      take a look at the link below. it will take you to a video that shows you how to create your own Iontophoresis machine (a machine that helps stop your hands and feet from sweating). i had never known about the condition until about a week ago, but was totally amazed at how informative that video was.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

  7. QUESTION:
    Should i get surgery for sweaty hands and feet?
    ok so i'm 23 and i have sweaty hands and feet. It started when i was younger around puberty and got a lil worse. It's worse on my feet and hands. It mainly happens with emotional excitment and anxiety. There is a surgery to cure it by clamping/cutting a nerve. The main side effect is sweating somewhere else in the body.

    Has anyone else done this or heard of cures to this problem? I tried iontophoresis this electric thing and it helps the hands but it isnt permanent.

    • ANSWER:
      I have this problem and it's really horrible, but I heard surgery isn't a good chance to take. I heard that often times it doesn't work and is just a waste of money.

  9. QUESTION:
    sweaty hands and feet. whats the cure? help!?
    my hands and feet sweats a lot. sometimes when i'm tense and most of the time when it's just plain hot, around 19celcius upwards.
    HELP ME STOP IT.
    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      some people have a problem called Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Although it might sound weird, a lot of people get botox injections at the site of the sweating to make it stop. I am not sure how severe your case is.. another thing you may try is going to the store to purchase some Clinical strength deoderant/antiperspirant to put on the sweat site. also, you could try putting baby powder in your socks/shoes. if it is REALLY bad, see your doctor.

  13. QUESTION:
    My hands and feet are sweaty, is there any cure for this?

      Yours just is a problem depending on emotional factors with some psychological involvements.

  15. QUESTION:
    How do you cure sweaty palms and feet?
    ok so i have this condition for almost 3 years now and its really annoying! my friends would often be disgusted about this. Im part of a dance group and when asked to hold hands, my partner just holds my wrists instead. So is there any cheap, homemade cures to counter sweaty palms and feet?
    guys im talking about hands and feet here.. I dont think you need deodorant for those parts of the body

    • ANSWER:
      My friend ! Sooner or later you will understand that this is no ordinary condition. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis which means unwanted and unstoppable sweat from palm, feet and armpit which will inhibit you from doing a lot of daily life activities. There are many temporary cures and a permanent surgical cure :-
      1- Botox Injection
      2- Aluminium chloride (hexahydrate) solution - You have to apply it at night and leave it and u can see a suppressed sweating for 1 day
      3- some anticholinergics work like oxybutynin (this worked in my case)
      4- Iontophoresis- Passage of mild bearable current thru palms and feet to stop sweating for 1 day
      5- the permanent surgical cure is the ultimate one. U will end this condition entirely by this minimally invasive endoscopic technique called Endoscopic Thoracic sympathectomy (ETS).

      some tips are :-
      daily take bath if possible more than once which will drain out the heat out of u because hyperhidrosis is triggered by heat
      use strong deodorants.
      always keep hanky
      wear sandals rather than closed shoes

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard that using an antiperspirant on your hands and feet can help some. Your primary Dr. should be able to refer you to a specialist about the surgery that could help. As for getting a girl, do not let that stop you, keep looking she will come and sit beside you someday. Try caring a cotton cloth handkerchief to blot your hands with. Good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    how do you get rid of/cure sweaty hands?
    OMG!! i have the most disgustingly sweaty hands and its gross and EMBARASSING!! im SOOO worried that a guy will never want to hold hands with me and theres a guy i like who likes me back but im worried he wont when he finds out. they are CONSTANTLY 24/7 DRPPING WET! my feet too, but i dnt really care about feet.

    any solutions?

    PLEASE HELP!! its so embarassing and my friends, like dont use the computer mouse after me! lol

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you have hyperhidrosis. I know how much it sucks ass!

      You can buy Certain-Dri (found at basically any store in the deodorant section) if you apply it to your palms at night for a few days in a row it sometimes completely stops sweating.

      Another thing I've found works is buy some baking soda. Wet your hands in the sink then pour some baking soda into your palm and rub it around your palms and fingers. Let it just sit on your hands like that for 3-15 minutes (however long you feel). If you do this a few times a day for a few days you will start to sweat WAY less and maybe eventually even stop completely (I've been doing this for about 3 days).

      Also try not to think about your palms and weather or not they are sweating. Most guys don't even care either, so I wouldn't worry much about holding their hands. and say you end up dating a guy, sweaty palms actually really come in handy for handjobs. No joke.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is there a non-expensive cure for sweaty hands?
    I'm 14 and I've had sweaty hands for as long as I can remember. It's a difficult and touchy subject for me because it has totally destroyed my confidence and self-esteem. I find it hard particularly in school, when I'm around my friends and I can't give high fives or touch hands or anything. I leave hand prints on things that show sweatiness like the mats in PE or the tables in theory subjects. I don't go out with guys because I wouldn't be able to hold their hand or feel comfortable. We're doing social dancing in school right now, and I want the ground to swallow me up because we done it a few days ago and it was AWFUL. My Christmas Dance is in under a week and I'm so nervous, becuase I won't be able to dance with anyone. I'd say my hands are sweaty around 85% of the time. The other 15% of the time when they are dry, I'm usually at home and around people I feel comfortable with. My feet and armpits are equally as sweaty as my hands, but they don't bother me as much because they aren't as noticable as sweaty hands. I need a cure- fast- and I've read about this treatment called iontophoresis which involves bathing your hands in water with an electric current in it for 15 mins every 3 weeks, but to have it professionally done it would cost around a thousand quid! I need a cheap cure as soon as possible. I suffered from this for a very very long time and I want to take control of my life now. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      Seriously, make an appointment with your doctor. You can have Botox treatment which reduces sweating. What you have is a condition called Hyperhidrosis. (If I remember correctly.)

      Good look, I hope you get it sorted!

  23. QUESTION:
    a cure for sweaty, clammy hands?
    my hands and my feet always seem to be clammy and sweaty even if im not hot.
    i don't like it, it sometimes embarrasses me.
    any remedies that could help?

    • ANSWER:
      Hands that are sweaty and clammy are actually quite common for a lot of people. I used to think I was the only one who was sweating so much. I think it has something to do with an increase in hormones or something like that.

      The only thing that I found worked for me was the natural home remedy that's suppose to be used for underarm sweating but you can use if for pretty much any kind of body sweat. I had all the ingredients at home and it seemed to work right away. I just used it in the morning and that pretty much took care of any excessive sweating I may of had throughout the day. You may want to give it a try http://homeremediesforcuring.com/underarm-sweating

      Just follow the instructional video and make sure you follow the procedure exactly.

      Good luck, I hope that helps :)

My doctor didn't do anything either and just told me that some people sweat more than others. pleaser help! it would help me a lot! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Botox is also a treatment for your condition.

      You are not alone, lots of people have this problem. Do some research, and go to your parents with what you find out. I guess if they are unwilling to help you further, you will have to wait until you have your own job, for the money to pay for treatment.

I love piano, and i can't imagine my life without it, but the sweatiness makes it hard for me. and when i'm at school, and if i happen to have sweaty hands when i am taking a test or doing a paper or writing something, the paper gets all wet. Anybody have any cures (medicine, home remedies, etc.) for this problem? I also occasionally have sweaty feet, but they aren't as big of a problem.

    oh, btw, i have also tried DRYSOL, and it worked for a few days, but then it stopped working, and it just left me with sleepless nights because of the plastic around my hands so the solution doesn't get on anything else. i'm 14 btw...

    THANKS!!!

  43. QUESTION:
    Why do I have sweaty palms? What can I do to treat/cure/control the problem?
    I'm a 14 y/o girl, and for as long as I can remember, I've had sweaty palms. I don't mean a little moisture from time to time; I have really sweaty palms almost all the time. It's embarrassing, and such a pain! I can't shake hands with people, and holding hands is something I dread doing; whenever I do either, the person looks disgusted! I go to a Catholic school, and we often have Mass during school hours. We shake hands with people, hold hands during the Our Father...But strangely, this seems to be one of the few times when I don't have a lot of sweat. It's strange, because I was reading an online article, and another person said the same thing about sweating in church. Maybe this is because church is a calming, peaceful place where I don't feel so anxious?

    As for anxiety, this definitely could be a factor. I've been diagnosed with a minor anxiety disorder, and I do worry an awful lot. Alternatively, it could have something to do with my diet. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and according to my aunt, who is a nutritionist, protein deficiency can cause a lot of problems, especially in teens.

    Anyway, I've had this problem for a very long time. I get cold, clammy hands and feet all the time. It's strange, because I'll be doing something, and then all of a sudden, I realize that my hands aren't sweating; but right then, they'll start sweating again!

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?
    By the way, I'm going to a dance this weekend. I'm a freshman, and it'll be my first one. My boyfriend's going to be there so I'd like a remedy that will be accessible by then.

    • ANSWER:
      it could be because your anxious or stressed, as for church i think your right maybe your stress free in there so you don't sweat. im not sure how you can cure it, maybe go to a doctor and ask them because they are more likely to know about it.

      and by the way you answered my question, and the person i drew; Paloma Faith she's a singer :) and shes amazing look her up on youtube.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but you sound like me. I've had sweaty palms for my entire life - and like you said, not clammy hands, legitimately dripping, pretty nasty stuff. (I once melted my friend's silly putty by playing with it for too long.) I don't want to downplay any of the things you said - it's totally logical that this could be related to your anxiety. But if it's almost constant, and really heavy, you might have what I have.
      It's called hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy name for lots of (hyper) sweating (hydrosis). The best thing I can tell you to do is find a dermatologist in your area who actually is familiar with it. www.sweathelp.org is a great site to help you do this and to read about the condition more. There are treatments, but they vary depending on how much you sweat and how much you want to do to fix the problem. Surgery (not recommended because you start sweating heavily from other places to make up for your now dry hands) is an extreme option, but others include clinical strength anti-perspirants to try rubbing on your hands (you'd have to see a dermatologist, it's not just like rubbing clinical strength Dove or something), and something called Iontophoresis, which you can read more about on the site (this is my option of choice, though it's not that convenient - if you have questions about it you can sent me a msg).

      So far there doesn't seem like there's a permanant fix for this (ex, my hands are always gross when I use a computer, nothing I can do about it) but there are definitely options to help you out. Find a dermatologist and ask away! Don't stop if one dr hasn't heard of it - it's definitely out there and there are people who know about it. Good luck!!

    I have really really dry hands, and my skin is like stretched, it feels horrid, help?
    lately, ive been getting really dry hands, now as i am typing my hands just feel dry and cold. the rest of my body isn't like this, not my feet or anything. its just my hands. i cant stretch them out fully to show my palm, well i can, but it feels just really horrid and dry, and when i do stretch them out, they arent smooth, they are just dry and crackly.

    i dont understand, why is it just my hands, and why does it feel this way? ive tried lotion, and yes that does seem to help, but whenever i wash my hands the lotion just rubs off and it goes back to being dry and stretched. i want something that can cure this permanently, is it what im eating? lack of vitamins or whatever? also to get rid of this i just usually warm them up, by rubbing them together and making them sweaty, and that does the job too, but i want a permanent cure. thanks

    Can anyone please suggest what to to? PLease, just anyone

    • ANSWER:
      Having sweaty palms is not the end of the world. I used to have this problem really badly, and I'd get paranoid whenever I knew I'd have to shake someone's hand. I'd try to avoid it and I'd look rude, and it was just no good.

      I had sweaty palms from about age 13 to 18, and for some reason the problem just stopped. Maybe the same will happen for you!

      But seriously, don't sweat it. (No pun intended!) People aren't going to think any less of you as a person- TONS of people have sweaty palms. If it continues to bother you, see a doctor. There are several treatment methods and I'm sure you could find one that works for you.

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating syndrome).

      Treatments include:

      Prescription antiperspirants.

      Iontophoresis: This involves soaking the hands or feet in a basin of water through which a mild electric current is passed. It requires frequent treatments, but it's often effective at reducing sweating.

      Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Injections of this anti-wrinkle drug turn off sweat glands in the hands, feet, or armpits for months at a time. Botox is more than 90% effective as a hyperhidrosis medication. The injections can be painful, though, sometimes requiring anesthesia. (NOTE: Botox is only FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be managed by topical agents such as prescription antiperspirants.)

      Oral hyperhidrosis medications can also reduce excessive sweating, although side effects frequently limit their use.

      In extreme cases, referral to a surgeon is an option. Surgical procedures are available to treat hyperhidrosis and can be quite effective. They often have serious side effects, though, and are considered a last resort.

    • ANSWER:
      I can appreciate your frustration.

      Have you tried using an antiperspirant deoderant for your hands and feet. Thats all i can suggest.

      I know they do botox injections for under the arms. Have you seen a specialist dermatologist yet they may have some new up to date treatments?

      I use talcum powder when i play pool when i get sweaty palms and this works really well. Good luck.

Curing Sweaty Feet

Ready to cure your nasty foot sweating problem? Looking for a way to stop the wetness and odor quickly AND conveniently? Easy enough! Just follow my 3 simple sweaty feet cures below and you'll be well on your way.

I know what you're going through...and it stinks! Yeah, pun intended - sorry :)

The good news is, you're not alone. Having sweaty feet is a pretty common complaint among most people. I certainly dealt with it on a daily basis. If you're anything like I was, it can be such a nerve racking experience having to take your shoes off in front of someone else. You pray they don't stink or worse off, the person will see the sweat stains soaking through your socks - yikes!

This is getting a little personal here but before I give you these three amazing treatments, I have to let you know one of my most embarrassing sweaty foot stories. I was in college and went on a date with this girl. Anyway, things were going pretty great and after dinner, we went back to her apartment to cuddle up a bit. When I got through the door she said the place was just cleaned and asked me to take my shoes off. Already, I was getting a little nervous.

I remember she had this dark tile kitchen floor and as I walked across it, I left damp foggy foot tracks. She looked put off by the sight of my sweat tracks immediately.

Things got a little awkward after that and I never heard from her again. Now, I don't know if things didn't work out because of my sweaty feet, but I'm sure it didn't add to my allure at the time.

So look, whatever reason YOU have to stop your foot sweating, it really couldn't be any easier once you know the simple home remedies that get results super FAST. I'm talking, within hours.

Let's get started with the first treatment.

Vinegar Foot Baths - Mix together 1/2 cup vinegar and a quart of very warm water in a basin. Soak your feet for 25 minutes. Then, dry your feet well - make sure you don't forget the spaces in between your toes. Don't rinse your feet. Let the vinegar really saturate your pores.

Not only does the vinegar act as an astringent, It exfoliates a thin top layer of your foot skin. You'll experience dryness for hours after this soak. Plus, the acid in the vinegar neutralizes odor causing bacteria deep in your feet. Some people like using apple cider vinegar for this treatment. However, for foot sweating, I prefer white vinegar. It's stronger and works faster.

As a side benefit, vinegar also inhibits fungal growth so you'll protect your toenails from fungus and clear up common problems like athletes foot.

Salt Water Soak - Simple? Yes. Effective? Ohhh Yes. Don't underestimate the power of a salt water soak on your feet. The salt will dry them right up and if you use Epsom salts, you'll have soft dry skin as well. Exfoliating with a loofah before soaking your feet in salt water makes results faster AND longer lasting. You also want to make sure you use warm water to open up your skin's pores and allow maximum exposure to the salt.

Be careful if you have any open cuts or sores on your feet. This will burn if you have any open abrasions.

Sage Tea - I saved the best for last. Sage tea contains super high levels of Tannic Acid which is a natural astringent. Add 4 or 5 bags of sage tea into a large basin of hot water and let it steep until the tea is fully dissolved. Then soak your feet for 25 minutes.

The tea will work its way into your foot pores and go to work, drying them up and neutralizing odor causing bacteria. Sage tea is VERY powerful as a long-term foot odor cure. Try this tonight and fall in love with the results.

Just a heads up - after you take your feet out of the basin, they'll be a little tanned from the tea. Don't freak out, the tanned color washes right off with a little soap and water.

This is just the beginning. I've posted my top 12 favorite sweating treatments at http://www.Prevent-Sweating.com. They're all listed step by step in a video I created called Sweat Free Tactics. It's totally free and the content is incredibly helpful for ANYONE with any kind of excessive sweating problem.

  2. QUESTION:
    Suggestions on curing sweaty feet?
    Okay, REALLY embarrassing, but I have feet that are kinda clammy/ sweaty whenever I wear shoes. They never seems to sweat when I don't have shoes on, just when I do. It started a few months ago, when I was wearing the same socks for a few days when camping with buds.(forgot more and you will wear socks again with all the creepy-crawlies) Ever since then, my feet start to stink whenever I'm done wearing shoes and they're starting to stink like sweat too. At first I thought I may have a fungus, but there's nothing growin' on my toes. So, I have no idea. Any thoughts, people??? Thank you for answering me question if you do. :)

  4. QUESTION:
    What is a household easy cure for sweaty feet?
    When I wear flats for school my feet sweat, well its actually my friends. What should she do..... sock her feet in tea bags??
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Feet that are deprived of cooling air circulation will sweat no matter what.

      Either wear cotton half socks inside the flats or wear flats that are made of breathable materials.

      It helps to place absorbent insoles inside the shoes.

      Foot powder can also be helpful.

      Here is the Tea cure: Boil five tea bags in a quart of water for five minutes. When the solution cools, soak your hands or feet for twenty to thirty minutes nightly.

      Tea contains tannic acid, which is also found in commercial products such as Ivy Dry, Zilactol, and Zilactin. The astringent properties of tannic acid are thought to be partly responsible for its antiperspirant action.

      To keep from slipping off of high heeled sandals spray a little super hold hairspray inside (instep) of the sandals, slides or shoes.

  5. QUESTION:
    How do you cure sweaty palms and feet?
    ok so i have this condition for almost 3 years now and its really annoying! my friends would often be disgusted about this. Im part of a dance group and when asked to hold hands, my partner just holds my wrists instead. So is there any cheap, homemade cures to counter sweaty palms and feet?
    guys im talking about hands and feet here.. I dont think you need deodorant for those parts of the body

    • ANSWER:
      My friend ! Sooner or later you will understand that this is no ordinary condition. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis which means unwanted and unstoppable sweat from palm, feet and armpit which will inhibit you from doing a lot of daily life activities. There are many temporary cures and a permanent surgical cure :-
      1- Botox Injection
      2- Aluminium chloride (hexahydrate) solution - You have to apply it at night and leave it and u can see a suppressed sweating for 1 day
      3- some anticholinergics work like oxybutynin (this worked in my case)
      4- Iontophoresis- Passage of mild bearable current thru palms and feet to stop sweating for 1 day
      5- the permanent surgical cure is the ultimate one. U will end this condition entirely by this minimally invasive endoscopic technique called Endoscopic Thoracic sympathectomy (ETS).

      some tips are :-
      daily take bath if possible more than once which will drain out the heat out of u because hyperhidrosis is triggered by heat
      use strong deodorants.
      always keep hanky
      wear sandals rather than closed shoes

  6. QUESTION:
    What is a good cure for sweaty feet during the hot summer days?

    • ANSWER:
      Walk around barefeet whenever you can, like when you're at home. It's the lack of ventilation down there that's causing them to sweat (and possibly stink).

  7. QUESTION:
    What is the easiest way to cure sweaty palms and feet?
    I have been having sweaty palms and feet for so many years now and I'm sick of it. I don't shake peoples hand and they always think I'm mean but really it's just the sweaty hands. And i can't really wear flip flops because my feet will become slippery. Is there any techniques or easy way to treat this bad condition?

    • ANSWER:
      You can get an iontophoresis device, which stops sweating for up to 6 weeks. The Drionic is a fairly inexpensive device, but there are others out there.

  8. QUESTION:
    Is there a cure for excessively sweaty feet?
    my feet sweat in normal shoes and smell because of it, they leave sweaty patches on my socks and i hate assemblies at school where i have to take my shoes off, is there any quick cure or product i can by to stop this happening ?

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately you may have hypahydrosis (sorry i think thats spelled wrong)
      i suffer from excessive sweating under my arms
      this may be similar to your feet

      or it could simply be simply be sweaty feet due to nerves or shoes or anything really

      try putting talcum powder on your feet, make sure their clean and washed before school. I believe their are some roll on you can buy for excessive sweaty to help prevent it or cut it down. (:
      i would talk to your doctor to help choose the best possible roll on because they know the chemicals in the products. it may have to be subscribed

      make sure you talk to a parent before purchasing one so they can check out all the chemicals and allergies etc..

  9. QUESTION:
    Is there a way to get rid of or cure sweaty palms and feet?
    My palms and feet sweat periodically throughout the day and I don't know why. It's not even when I'm nervous. I can just be watching TV alone and they will start sweating heavily. Is there any cheap way to stop this or anything else that will help? I have heard about a type of surgery that can be done. If anyone knows about it can you please tell me more information and maybe give a price of the surgery? (I have health insurance if that makes a difference in price)

    • ANSWER:
      I had the exact same problem, it's called hyperhydrosis which is a condition where your sweating glands over sweat.I would just be sitting somewhere doing nothing and I would sweat constantly. There is no need for surgery. I used Hypercare. It's this anti-per sprint alcohol my doctor per scribed me. You can use it on your hands, feet, under arms, and scalp. It was a little expensive though, around but it will definitely work in 3 days or less. It has been 4 or 5 months now and after those first 3 treatments I have'nt had any sweating problems.

  10. QUESTION:
    How to cure sweaty palms and feet?
    I have a problem with my palms and feet, and it's getting worse. I can't shake other people hands. Help me

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like hypohydrosis. Go see a dermatologist. There are some creams that they can prescribe for you to use to help the sweating. You can also get botox injections for this - I know you can have it done to your underarms but not sure about your hands/feet.

  20. QUESTION:
    Silly question, but what cures sweaty stinky feet?
    ha ha, well everyone gets it and its quite embarrassing

    • ANSWER:
      Keep your feet dry. Use powder on your feet and between toes after bathing. Use a commercial foot spray in your shoes and a antibacterial spray or powder on your feet. If this is a chronic problem try soaking your feet in a solution of very warm water and tea. Make it a strong tea solution. Soak them like that once a week. It's going to stain your feet but the stinkfoot will go away.

  22. QUESTION:
    How to get rid of fungus and sweaty feet?
    I have fungus in my feet don't know how to cure it and my feet is sweating dont knot how to cure it too.

    • ANSWER:
      Perspiration has a purpose in humans, its evaporation allows the skin to cool and the body to dissipate heat. Unfortunately, wearing shoes all day stops this evaporation and allows the sweat to stay close to the skin and causing various problems. Sweat is really nutritious to bacteria and if the sweat stays in place long enough on your skin, socks or the linings of your shoes, quite a colony can grow. The byproduct of bacteria and fungi eating your sweat is the offensive odour your housemates hate.
      Socks

      Throw out all your socks made from synthetic material – they are not your friends. Replace them with socks that are 60–70% wool combined with 40-30% synthetic fibre. If you want to aim for the best socks, podiatrists sell socks made from bamboo fibre, which draw sweat away very effectively. You can even get some with silver woven into the material which will inhibit the growth of micro-organisms on the socks and on your skin. They are expensive but effective and can be worth the money, particularly if a foot infection is a danger to you, for example, a diabetic.
      Wear clean socks every day. Wash socks on the hottest cycle using Milton’s (or similar) nappy wash and dry in the sun.
      Change your socks in the middle of the work day if you sweat enough to soak the first pair.
      Don’t skip wearing socks because the sweat will be soaked up by your shoes which are much harder to clean than socks.

      Shoes

      Prime importance is to stop the sweat from soaking into the material of the shoes where it will become rancid. Buy some washable insoles for your shoes, and wash them every day until the problem improves and then weekly after that.
      Liners such as odour-eaters are cheap enough to throw away weekly and will go a long way to sorting out the shoes.
      You can swab the inside of your shoes with alcohol such as mentholated spirits.
      Try to avoid wearing the same shoes two days in a row allow them to dry out well.

      Feet

      Check the soles of your feet for hard, dead skin which becomes waterlogged when sweaty and an ideal environment for bacteria. Remove it with a pumice stone or a trip to the podiatrist..
      Wash and soap your feet well at least once per day. Do it twice daily at first if bad. An antibacterial skin preparation can help. Check the chemist for a product intended for acne.
      As an alternative, you could soak your feet daily in weak black tea, which contains tannic acid. It is thought to make the sweat glands ‘pucker up’. Boil two tea bags in half a litre of water for a quarter hour. Add this to 2 litres of cool tap water and soak your feet for 20–30 minutes. Dry thoroughly and do not put on shoes soon after. Let your feet air to get really dry.

      Check in between the toes for white, dead looking skin, rashes or generally smelliness. Fungal infections love places that are warm, damp and dark. Use an anti-fungal preparation from the chemist that is based in either water or oil as it will disperse the wetness more efficiently. Keep it up until the symptoms are completely gone and ten days more. If this is not enough to solve the problem, see a podiatrist.

      Use a strong antiperspirant (which is not the same as a deodorant) which contains 20% aluminium chloride. This will be a man strength, sport antiperspirant. Give the feet a good spray prior to putting on shoes and allow a couple of minutes for it to dry.

      Drugs. Some medications have been known to cause unusual foot odours. Try everything above first, then consult your podiatrist if there is no improvement.
      Teenagers. Yes, its not your imagination, the problem is worse in teenagers! 1) Hormonal changes trigger excessive sweating 2) hygiene may not be his priority. This may change ‘naturally’ when he gets a girlfriend.
      Hyperhidrosis. This is a condition where the feet (and usually the hands too) literally run with sweat output. You will find you can’t wear thongs because you slide out of them. You can’t lean on shop counters because you leave a big puddle behind. This is a condition where the sympathetic nervous system becomes overactive. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the stuff you don’t have to think about like beating the heart, moving food through the gut and, of course, sweating.

      Pharmaceutical Interventions. Include anticholinergic drugs which interfere with block the action of the sympathetic nerves. They can be effective but the side effects may be worse than the problem and include: dry mouth, blurred of vision, constipation and sleepiness. Bromide is also sometimes used but has other side effects related to virility.

      Surgery can be performed to ablate (burn off) the sympathetic nerve and is called a sympathetectomy. It has been implicated in impairment of other autonomic functions and needs good consideration. You would need to be referred by your doctor to a specialist neurologist

  25. QUESTION:
    how do you cure sweaty smelly feet?

    • ANSWER:
      Some people just have more odour than others, but a way of managing foot odour is to not give the bacteria the chance to multiply.

      Bacteria basically need warmth, and moisture to grow, so the key to stopping them multiplying is to take away one or both of those key elements.

      The best way is to air your feet and shoes, so make sure that you have a few pairs of shoes and try not to wear the same pair of shoes 2 days in a row. If possible then wash your shoes in the washing machine (only if they're washable).

      Buy insoles with charcoal as this helps absorb the smell, any insoles that just smell nice will only cover up the smell. When you get home change out of your shoes and try and go barefoot, or if it's too cold to do this then put a clean pair of socks on.

      I hope this helps! Wishing you lots of luck.

  28. QUESTION:
    Is there a remedy/cure for sweaty, smelly feet?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually some of the answers here are incorrect. Feet have more sweat glands than any other part of our bodies hard to believe, but so true! You should wear thick white socks so they are able to absorb any moisture.. not thin socks!! This is very important. Also you should not wear the same shoes day after day. Allow your shoes to air out and dry between the times you wear them. Avoid shoes made from plastics as they do not allow your feet to breathe and trap any odors inside them. Of course good hygiene is of the utmost importance, taking special attention to the area between the toes. There are numerous foot powders on the market that are extrememly helpful, but if none of this helps I would visit a Podiatrist who specializes in the foot who can write you an Rx for the problem.

      Good Luck!! Remember, thick socks (white) not thin ones!! Very very important!!!

  29. QUESTION:
    A cure for hot sweaty feet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
    Sorry to sound gross but sometimes my feet feel a bit clamy..not really sweaty but a bit damp.
    I've tried a foot anti-perspirant from Boots which has really helped but is there anything else I can do to help the problem? It is only something I tend to experience in the summer.

    • ANSWER:
      Time for some attentionMix together (in a bowl) half water, half lemon juice.
      Gently dip paper towel into the mixture.
      Apply to feet.
      This will soften, remove odors, and smooth your feet.

      Tips
      This mixture requires refrigeration since it doesn't contain preservatives. Shelf life is approximately one week.
      Also, if you have moisturizers that just didn't work out for your face, use these on your feet, especially right before bedtime. Slather around and then pull on a pair of old socks.

      Warnings
      Don't ever use anything sharp to scrape rough feet

      Things You'll Need
      paper towel(s)
      lemon juice
      water
      wide mouthed bowl

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

    would a girl stop liking you if she found out about your sweaty palms.

    • ANSWER:
      Girls would still date a guy with sweaty palms or feet if they felt attraction and comfort with him. However if they did not feel attraction and comfort with him, they would rationalize that his sweaty palms and feet "must be the reason why I don't like him", which would be nothing but an excuse.

  47. QUESTION:
    sweaty and stinky feet!!! HELP!?
    So I go to school, and during gym class I take off my shoes and my feet are like sweaty!!! (super wet) and super stinky!!! I tried powder, new shoes and new socks! nothing is helping!!!! Is there like a very good!!! creme, spray or whatever and what to do??? (example: athlete foot cure)

    • ANSWER:
      Try some of the otc athlete's foot sprays, the ones that go on dry or say "powder" are easier to use because you don't have to wait for them to dry.
      If that doesn't work, you may have some other kind of fungus other than regular athlete's foot fungus. You may have to see a doctor to get a medicine that will work for you.

      Some tips:
      You shouldn't let your bare feet touch the locker room floor.
      If you use the same shower as your dad or brothers, you should be extra careful and even consider wearing clean flip flops to take a shower at home. I don't know why, but boys and men are more prone to it (maybe because girls wouldn't go barefoot in some of the places men would, they're like, "what, that green stuff growing in the gym shower is bad for my feet?!")
      Clean your shower at home, with bleach, to keep from giving it to others in your family, and to keep from re-infecting yourself. You should do this often until you get rid of the infection.
      Anyway, once you get rid of it, just be careful to not get it again.

    • ANSWER:
      If your feet are both sweaty and smelly, you need to combat both the sweat and the overgrowth of bacteria on the soles. See if CertainDri works for the sweating. If not, then you might need to see a dermatologist for either prescription grade antiperspirants, or for recommendations as to either iontophoresis or botox injections. In additon, he can prescribe some topical clindamycin gel to use for the odor.

      Yours just is a problem depending on emotional factors with some psychological involvements.

  11. QUESTION:
    How do you cure sweaty palms and feet?
    ok so i have this condition for almost 3 years now and its really annoying! my friends would often be disgusted about this. Im part of a dance group and when asked to hold hands, my partner just holds my wrists instead. So is there any cheap, homemade cures to counter sweaty palms and feet?
    guys im talking about hands and feet here.. I dont think you need deodorant for those parts of the body

    • ANSWER:
      My friend ! Sooner or later you will understand that this is no ordinary condition. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis which means unwanted and unstoppable sweat from palm, feet and armpit which will inhibit you from doing a lot of daily life activities. There are many temporary cures and a permanent surgical cure :-
      1- Botox Injection
      2- Aluminium chloride (hexahydrate) solution - You have to apply it at night and leave it and u can see a suppressed sweating for 1 day
      3- some anticholinergics work like oxybutynin (this worked in my case)
      4- Iontophoresis- Passage of mild bearable current thru palms and feet to stop sweating for 1 day
      5- the permanent surgical cure is the ultimate one. U will end this condition entirely by this minimally invasive endoscopic technique called Endoscopic Thoracic sympathectomy (ETS).

      some tips are :-
      daily take bath if possible more than once which will drain out the heat out of u because hyperhidrosis is triggered by heat
      use strong deodorants.
      always keep hanky
      wear sandals rather than closed shoes

  12. QUESTION:
    a cure for sweaty, clammy hands?
    my hands and my feet always seem to be clammy and sweaty even if im not hot.
    i don't like it, it sometimes embarrasses me.
    any remedies that could help?

    • ANSWER:
      Hands that are sweaty and clammy are actually quite common for a lot of people. I used to think I was the only one who was sweating so much. I think it has something to do with an increase in hormones or something like that.

      The only thing that I found worked for me was the natural home remedy that's suppose to be used for underarm sweating but you can use if for pretty much any kind of body sweat. I had all the ingredients at home and it seemed to work right away. I just used it in the morning and that pretty much took care of any excessive sweating I may of had throughout the day. You may want to give it a try http://homeremediesforcuring.com/underarm-sweating

      Just follow the instructional video and make sure you follow the procedure exactly.

      Good luck, I hope that helps :)

  13. QUESTION:
    Is there a non-expensive cure for sweaty hands?
    I'm 14 and I've had sweaty hands for as long as I can remember. It's a difficult and touchy subject for me because it has totally destroyed my confidence and self-esteem. I find it hard particularly in school, when I'm around my friends and I can't give high fives or touch hands or anything. I leave hand prints on things that show sweatiness like the mats in PE or the tables in theory subjects. I don't go out with guys because I wouldn't be able to hold their hand or feel comfortable. We're doing social dancing in school right now, and I want the ground to swallow me up because we done it a few days ago and it was AWFUL. My Christmas Dance is in under a week and I'm so nervous, becuase I won't be able to dance with anyone. I'd say my hands are sweaty around 85% of the time. The other 15% of the time when they are dry, I'm usually at home and around people I feel comfortable with. My feet and armpits are equally as sweaty as my hands, but they don't bother me as much because they aren't as noticable as sweaty hands. I need a cure- fast- and I've read about this treatment called iontophoresis which involves bathing your hands in water with an electric current in it for 15 mins every 3 weeks, but to have it professionally done it would cost around a thousand quid! I need a cheap cure as soon as possible. I suffered from this for a very very long time and I want to take control of my life now. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      Seriously, make an appointment with your doctor. You can have Botox treatment which reduces sweating. What you have is a condition called Hyperhidrosis. (If I remember correctly.)

      Good look, I hope you get it sorted!

  25. QUESTION:
    Why do I have sweaty palms? What can I do to treat/cure/control the problem?
    I'm a 14 y/o girl, and for as long as I can remember, I've had sweaty palms. I don't mean a little moisture from time to time; I have really sweaty palms almost all the time. It's embarrassing, and such a pain! I can't shake hands with people, and holding hands is something I dread doing; whenever I do either, the person looks disgusted! I go to a Catholic school, and we often have Mass during school hours. We shake hands with people, hold hands during the Our Father...But strangely, this seems to be one of the few times when I don't have a lot of sweat. It's strange, because I was reading an online article, and another person said the same thing about sweating in church. Maybe this is because church is a calming, peaceful place where I don't feel so anxious?

    As for anxiety, this definitely could be a factor. I've been diagnosed with a minor anxiety disorder, and I do worry an awful lot. Alternatively, it could have something to do with my diet. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and according to my aunt, who is a nutritionist, protein deficiency can cause a lot of problems, especially in teens.

    Anyway, I've had this problem for a very long time. I get cold, clammy hands and feet all the time. It's strange, because I'll be doing something, and then all of a sudden, I realize that my hands aren't sweating; but right then, they'll start sweating again!

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?
    By the way, I'm going to a dance this weekend. I'm a freshman, and it'll be my first one. My boyfriend's going to be there so I'd like a remedy that will be accessible by then.

    • ANSWER:
      it could be because your anxious or stressed, as for church i think your right maybe your stress free in there so you don't sweat. im not sure how you can cure it, maybe go to a doctor and ask them because they are more likely to know about it.

      and by the way you answered my question, and the person i drew; Paloma Faith she's a singer :) and shes amazing look her up on youtube.

    I have been to the doctors and got a roll on to put on my hands and feet but this did not work at all, i went back and got tested for an overactive
    thyroid and everything came back normal, i was then told that nothing else could be done???? is he just fobbing me off as this is really ruining my life

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating syndrome).

      Treatments include:

      Prescription antiperspirants.

      Iontophoresis: This involves soaking the hands or feet in a basin of water through which a mild electric current is passed. It requires frequent treatments, but it's often effective at reducing sweating.

      Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Injections of this anti-wrinkle drug turn off sweat glands in the hands, feet, or armpits for months at a time. Botox is more than 90% effective as a hyperhidrosis medication. The injections can be painful, though, sometimes requiring anesthesia. (NOTE: Botox is only FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be managed by topical agents such as prescription antiperspirants.)

      Oral hyperhidrosis medications can also reduce excessive sweating, although side effects frequently limit their use.

      In extreme cases, referral to a surgeon is an option. Surgical procedures are available to treat hyperhidrosis and can be quite effective. They often have serious side effects, though, and are considered a last resort.

  27. QUESTION:
    Health problem...help anyone? Doctors maybe?
    I have had this problem ever since I can remember...like even when I was like 5 years old. I'm 14 now, and i still have it...I have VERY sweaty palms. Like sometimes the sweat drips down. It's not really a problem except for when it comes to school and piano. I love piano, and i can't imagine my life without it, but the sweatiness makes it hard for me. and when i'm at school, and if i happen to have sweaty hands when i am taking a test or doing a paper or writing something, the paper gets all wet. Anybody have any cures (medicine, home remedies, etc.) for this problem? I also occasionally have sweaty feet, but they aren't as big of a problem.

    oh, btw, i have also tried DRYSOL, and it worked for a few days, but then it stopped working, and it just left me with sleepless nights because of the plastic around my hands so the solution doesn't get on anything else. i'm 14 btw...

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but you sound like me. I've had sweaty palms for my entire life - and like you said, not clammy hands, legitimately dripping, pretty nasty stuff. (I once melted my friend's silly putty by playing with it for too long.) I don't want to downplay any of the things you said - it's totally logical that this could be related to your anxiety. But if it's almost constant, and really heavy, you might have what I have.
      It's called hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy name for lots of (hyper) sweating (hydrosis). The best thing I can tell you to do is find a dermatologist in your area who actually is familiar with it. www.sweathelp.org is a great site to help you do this and to read about the condition more. There are treatments, but they vary depending on how much you sweat and how much you want to do to fix the problem. Surgery (not recommended because you start sweating heavily from other places to make up for your now dry hands) is an extreme option, but others include clinical strength anti-perspirants to try rubbing on your hands (you'd have to see a dermatologist, it's not just like rubbing clinical strength Dove or something), and something called Iontophoresis, which you can read more about on the site (this is my option of choice, though it's not that convenient - if you have questions about it you can sent me a msg).

      So far there doesn't seem like there's a permanant fix for this (ex, my hands are always gross when I use a computer, nothing I can do about it) but there are definitely options to help you out. Find a dermatologist and ask away! Don't stop if one dr hasn't heard of it - it's definitely out there and there are people who know about it. Good luck!!

  32. QUESTION:
    Why does my boyfriend sweat all the time ?
    Like in winter he will be fine , but if he walks somewhere , the corner store, he gets sweaty even when it is below zero and he is cold.

    Or he says he will be fine when he is walking then when he gets home or wherever he is going and he "stops walking" thats when he will start sweating.

    And the summer forget about it , he just sweats standing in the heat.

    He sweats from his Head , which is shaved would that have something to do with it ? His hands , back , feet , buttocks , armpits ect...

    My poor guy ;( I feel so bad for him is there anything you can buy in the store to stop this ?

    What causes this ? People say to drink alot of water , wouldnt the water make you sweat ? Because when you sweat it is water that you are sweating ? Right ?

    There is no cure for this ?

    • ANSWER:
      It could just be his genetics. I'm exactly like your boyfriend. I sweat just by sitting in the heat, all over my body. Nothing he or you can do. Drinking water hydrates the body... I don't know anything about sweating the water out... Water get exits the body when you urinate, not when you sweat.

  2. QUESTION:
    How do you cure sweaty palms and feet?
    ok so i have this condition for almost 3 years now and its really annoying! my friends would often be disgusted about this. Im part of a dance group and when asked to hold hands, my partner just holds my wrists instead. So is there any cheap, homemade cures to counter sweaty palms and feet?
    guys im talking about hands and feet here.. I dont think you need deodorant for those parts of the body

    • ANSWER:
      My friend ! Sooner or later you will understand that this is no ordinary condition. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis which means unwanted and unstoppable sweat from palm, feet and armpit which will inhibit you from doing a lot of daily life activities. There are many temporary cures and a permanent surgical cure :-
      1- Botox Injection
      2- Aluminium chloride (hexahydrate) solution - You have to apply it at night and leave it and u can see a suppressed sweating for 1 day
      3- some anticholinergics work like oxybutynin (this worked in my case)
      4- Iontophoresis- Passage of mild bearable current thru palms and feet to stop sweating for 1 day
      5- the permanent surgical cure is the ultimate one. U will end this condition entirely by this minimally invasive endoscopic technique called Endoscopic Thoracic sympathectomy (ETS).

      some tips are :-
      daily take bath if possible more than once which will drain out the heat out of u because hyperhidrosis is triggered by heat
      use strong deodorants.
      always keep hanky
      wear sandals rather than closed shoes

  7. QUESTION:
    curing excessive sweating and sweaty palms?
    i have excessive sweating but mostly its on my underarms.it gets my school shirt which is white to yellow and its really embarassing.usually when like its hot in the afternoon (i go to school at that time),it sweats a lot.last year i used to go to school in the morning and it doesn't sweat unless i get nervous.i sweat on my palms n foot since i was a baby.i take caffeine a lot but i tried stopping it and it doesn't help at all.i do not coffee or tea for about 3-4 months and its still the same.PLS HELP...IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.

    • ANSWER:
      Coming from someone who overcame the exact same problem, here's what I suggest you do:

      For your underarms, get Certain Dri. It's a deodorant that you put on at night, and it won't completely abolish your pit stains, but it will help greatly to reduce them. Take your showers at night, apply the Certain Dri, and the next morning, go through your usual routine and put on a regular deodorant like Secret, or any other brand you like. After using it for a long time, it'll start to burn when you put the Certain Dri on, so give yourself a break from it, like for example don't use it on weekends and only on schooldays.

      For your hands and feet, take Probiotics. The form I have it in is powder that you mix in with a drink. If you can't get your hands on it, try taking acidophilus; That'll help too, just not as much.

  8. QUESTION:
    Why do I have sweaty palms? What can I do to treat/cure/control the problem?
    I'm a 14 y/o girl, and for as long as I can remember, I've had sweaty palms. I don't mean a little moisture from time to time; I have really sweaty palms almost all the time. It's embarrassing, and such a pain! I can't shake hands with people, and holding hands is something I dread doing; whenever I do either, the person looks disgusted! I go to a Catholic school, and we often have Mass during school hours. We shake hands with people, hold hands during the Our Father...But strangely, this seems to be one of the few times when I don't have a lot of sweat. It's strange, because I was reading an online article, and another person said the same thing about sweating in church. Maybe this is because church is a calming, peaceful place where I don't feel so anxious?

    As for anxiety, this definitely could be a factor. I've been diagnosed with a minor anxiety disorder, and I do worry an awful lot. Alternatively, it could have something to do with my diet. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and according to my aunt, who is a nutritionist, protein deficiency can cause a lot of problems, especially in teens.

    Anyway, I've had this problem for a very long time. I get cold, clammy hands and feet all the time. It's strange, because I'll be doing something, and then all of a sudden, I realize that my hands aren't sweating; but right then, they'll start sweating again!

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?
    By the way, I'm going to a dance this weekend. I'm a freshman, and it'll be my first one. My boyfriend's going to be there so I'd like a remedy that will be accessible by then.

    • ANSWER:
      it could be because your anxious or stressed, as for church i think your right maybe your stress free in there so you don't sweat. im not sure how you can cure it, maybe go to a doctor and ask them because they are more likely to know about it.

      and by the way you answered my question, and the person i drew; Paloma Faith she's a singer :) and shes amazing look her up on youtube.

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but you sound like me. I've had sweaty palms for my entire life - and like you said, not clammy hands, legitimately dripping, pretty nasty stuff. (I once melted my friend's silly putty by playing with it for too long.) I don't want to downplay any of the things you said - it's totally logical that this could be related to your anxiety. But if it's almost constant, and really heavy, you might have what I have.
      It's called hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy name for lots of (hyper) sweating (hydrosis). The best thing I can tell you to do is find a dermatologist in your area who actually is familiar with it. www.sweathelp.org is a great site to help you do this and to read about the condition more. There are treatments, but they vary depending on how much you sweat and how much you want to do to fix the problem. Surgery (not recommended because you start sweating heavily from other places to make up for your now dry hands) is an extreme option, but others include clinical strength anti-perspirants to try rubbing on your hands (you'd have to see a dermatologist, it's not just like rubbing clinical strength Dove or something), and something called Iontophoresis, which you can read more about on the site (this is my option of choice, though it's not that convenient - if you have questions about it you can sent me a msg).

      So far there doesn't seem like there's a permanant fix for this (ex, my hands are always gross when I use a computer, nothing I can do about it) but there are definitely options to help you out. Find a dermatologist and ask away! Don't stop if one dr hasn't heard of it - it's definitely out there and there are people who know about it. Good luck!!

    Also i cannot afford to pay for botox my self as i am a single mother to two boys and no longer work x

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating syndrome).

      Treatments include:

      Prescription antiperspirants.

      Iontophoresis: This involves soaking the hands or feet in a basin of water through which a mild electric current is passed. It requires frequent treatments, but it's often effective at reducing sweating.

      Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Injections of this anti-wrinkle drug turn off sweat glands in the hands, feet, or armpits for months at a time. Botox is more than 90% effective as a hyperhidrosis medication. The injections can be painful, though, sometimes requiring anesthesia. (NOTE: Botox is only FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be managed by topical agents such as prescription antiperspirants.)

      Oral hyperhidrosis medications can also reduce excessive sweating, although side effects frequently limit their use.

      In extreme cases, referral to a surgeon is an option. Surgical procedures are available to treat hyperhidrosis and can be quite effective. They often have serious side effects, though, and are considered a last resort.

  11. QUESTION:
    solution for palm & feet sweating?
    everytime i get myself overworked or stressed, i always end up with a sweaty hands/feet. why does this occur and what should i do to prevent or cure it?

    • ANSWER:
      It occurs from over active glands and to help you could either put baby powder on your hands and feet before you work or there might be a surgery to reduce the size of the glands...i would recemend using baby powder.

  12. QUESTION:
    Health problem...help anyone? Doctors maybe?
    I have had this problem ever since I can remember...like even when I was like 5 years old. I'm 14 now, and i still have it...I have VERY sweaty palms. Like sometimes the sweat drips down. It's not really a problem except for when it comes to school and piano. I love piano, and i can't imagine my life without it, but the sweatiness makes it hard for me. and when i'm at school, and if i happen to have sweaty hands when i am taking a test or doing a paper or writing something, the paper gets all wet. Anybody have any cures (medicine, home remedies, etc.) for this problem? I also occasionally have sweaty feet, but they aren't as big of a problem.

    oh, btw, i have also tried DRYSOL, and it worked for a few days, but then it stopped working, and it just left me with sleepless nights because of the plastic around my hands so the solution doesn't get on anything else. i'm 14 btw...

    THANKS!!!

    • ANSWER:

  13. QUESTION:
    Can I have success with women if I sweat all over and have a lot of body hair?
    I have hyperhidrosis that can't be cured so I always sweat a ton all over, especially in my armpits and groin and chest area as well as palms and feet (smelly socks).

    Even worse, I have a ton of body hair.

    I have tried all kinds of things for the sweating, and hours of electrolysis for the body hair. Laser hair removal is expensive and doesn't work for most people unless you hae light skin and black hair. I even have hair on the sides of my stomach, in my nose, ears etc...

    Nothing has worked and I am very unfonfident of approaching women because of these sweaty hairy problems.

    I am 6 feet 175 pounds and not out of shape.

    But I look like a smelly wet ape.

    Will women care about this if I fake confidence?

    • ANSWER:
      Just try to not be too worried about it, you'll do OK. I can just imagine how you may feel towards approaching women, but don't let that stand in your way. The right person(s) will notice the good points about you and will be more understanding once you explain your problem.

      At least, though I wish it didn't have to be that way, you are aware of your problem and do your best to not smell or look bad .... a sad thing though is that many men look, smell and act bad, but they DON"T want to do anything about it.

      I knew a guy once with your condition....he has been happily married now for several years now and is well liked by others in his community. So, you are not alone in this, and people do understand.
      Hold your head up, be proud............and....

      MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

      EDITED--- I just looked this up...you might want to take a look at the website :
      http://www.hyperhidrosis.org/
      "Fortunately with the recent advances in medicine, many forms of treatment are available to treat hyperhidrosis. Medications, topical antiperspirants, iontophoresis, botox and surgery have been tried to treat hyperhidrosis. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy or ETS is the most effective method to treat hyperhidrosis. The California Institute for Hyperhidrosis and Facial Blushing provides a comprehensive site about hyperhidrosis and the ETS procedure."
      Good Luck

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

  6. QUESTION:
    Should i get surgery for sweaty hands and feet?
    ok so i'm 23 and i have sweaty hands and feet. It started when i was younger around puberty and got a lil worse. It's worse on my feet and hands. It mainly happens with emotional excitment and anxiety. There is a surgery to cure it by clamping/cutting a nerve. The main side effect is sweating somewhere else in the body.

    Has anyone else done this or heard of cures to this problem? I tried iontophoresis this electric thing and it helps the hands but it isnt permanent.

      Yours just is a problem depending on emotional factors with some psychological involvements.

  10. QUESTION:
    How do you cure sweaty palms and feet?
    ok so i have this condition for almost 3 years now and its really annoying! my friends would often be disgusted about this. Im part of a dance group and when asked to hold hands, my partner just holds my wrists instead. So is there any cheap, homemade cures to counter sweaty palms and feet?
    guys im talking about hands and feet here.. I dont think you need deodorant for those parts of the body

    • ANSWER:
      My friend ! Sooner or later you will understand that this is no ordinary condition. This condition is called Hyperhidrosis which means unwanted and unstoppable sweat from palm, feet and armpit which will inhibit you from doing a lot of daily life activities. There are many temporary cures and a permanent surgical cure :-
      1- Botox Injection
      2- Aluminium chloride (hexahydrate) solution - You have to apply it at night and leave it and u can see a suppressed sweating for 1 day
      3- some anticholinergics work like oxybutynin (this worked in my case)
      4- Iontophoresis- Passage of mild bearable current thru palms and feet to stop sweating for 1 day
      5- the permanent surgical cure is the ultimate one. U will end this condition entirely by this minimally invasive endoscopic technique called Endoscopic Thoracic sympathectomy (ETS).

      some tips are :-
      daily take bath if possible more than once which will drain out the heat out of u because hyperhidrosis is triggered by heat
      use strong deodorants.
      always keep hanky
      wear sandals rather than closed shoes

  12. QUESTION:
    Is there a non-expensive cure for sweaty hands?
    I'm 14 and I've had sweaty hands for as long as I can remember. It's a difficult and touchy subject for me because it has totally destroyed my confidence and self-esteem. I find it hard particularly in school, when I'm around my friends and I can't give high fives or touch hands or anything. I leave hand prints on things that show sweatiness like the mats in PE or the tables in theory subjects. I don't go out with guys because I wouldn't be able to hold their hand or feel comfortable. We're doing social dancing in school right now, and I want the ground to swallow me up because we done it a few days ago and it was AWFUL. My Christmas Dance is in under a week and I'm so nervous, becuase I won't be able to dance with anyone. I'd say my hands are sweaty around 85% of the time. The other 15% of the time when they are dry, I'm usually at home and around people I feel comfortable with. My feet and armpits are equally as sweaty as my hands, but they don't bother me as much because they aren't as noticable as sweaty hands. I need a cure- fast- and I've read about this treatment called iontophoresis which involves bathing your hands in water with an electric current in it for 15 mins every 3 weeks, but to have it professionally done it would cost around a thousand quid! I need a cheap cure as soon as possible. I suffered from this for a very very long time and I want to take control of my life now. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      Seriously, make an appointment with your doctor. You can have Botox treatment which reduces sweating. What you have is a condition called Hyperhidrosis. (If I remember correctly.)

      Good look, I hope you get it sorted!

  13. QUESTION:
    a cure for sweaty, clammy hands?
    my hands and my feet always seem to be clammy and sweaty even if im not hot.
    i don't like it, it sometimes embarrasses me.
    any remedies that could help?

    • ANSWER:
      Hands that are sweaty and clammy are actually quite common for a lot of people. I used to think I was the only one who was sweating so much. I think it has something to do with an increase in hormones or something like that.

      The only thing that I found worked for me was the natural home remedy that's suppose to be used for underarm sweating but you can use if for pretty much any kind of body sweat. I had all the ingredients at home and it seemed to work right away. I just used it in the morning and that pretty much took care of any excessive sweating I may of had throughout the day. You may want to give it a try http://homeremediesforcuring.com/underarm-sweating

      Just follow the instructional video and make sure you follow the procedure exactly.

      Good luck, I hope that helps :)

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating syndrome).

      Treatments include:

      Prescription antiperspirants.

      Iontophoresis: This involves soaking the hands or feet in a basin of water through which a mild electric current is passed. It requires frequent treatments, but it's often effective at reducing sweating.

      Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Injections of this anti-wrinkle drug turn off sweat glands in the hands, feet, or armpits for months at a time. Botox is more than 90% effective as a hyperhidrosis medication. The injections can be painful, though, sometimes requiring anesthesia. (NOTE: Botox is only FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be managed by topical agents such as prescription antiperspirants.)

      Oral hyperhidrosis medications can also reduce excessive sweating, although side effects frequently limit their use.

      In extreme cases, referral to a surgeon is an option. Surgical procedures are available to treat hyperhidrosis and can be quite effective. They often have serious side effects, though, and are considered a last resort.

  25. QUESTION:
    Is iontophoresis safe?
    Does anyone know if iontophoresis is safe? What should I use for the procedure? If it's not safe, what should I do instead to cure palmar hyperhidrosis? Please help! I am sick and tired of having sweaty hands and feet everyday for so long.

    • ANSWER:
      iontophoresis is the transfer of ions from one place to another. its completely safe. i do not know if it cures palmar hyperhidrosis though.

  26. QUESTION:
    Health problem...help anyone? Doctors maybe?
    I have had this problem ever since I can remember...like even when I was like 5 years old. I'm 14 now, and i still have it...I have VERY sweaty palms. Like sometimes the sweat drips down. It's not really a problem except for when it comes to school and piano. I love piano, and i can't imagine my life without it, but the sweatiness makes it hard for me. and when i'm at school, and if i happen to have sweaty hands when i am taking a test or doing a paper or writing something, the paper gets all wet. Anybody have any cures (medicine, home remedies, etc.) for this problem? I also occasionally have sweaty feet, but they aren't as big of a problem.

    oh, btw, i have also tried DRYSOL, and it worked for a few days, but then it stopped working, and it just left me with sleepless nights because of the plastic around my hands so the solution doesn't get on anything else. i'm 14 btw...

    THANKS!!!

  27. QUESTION:
    Why do I have sweaty palms? What can I do to treat/cure/control the problem?
    I'm a 14 y/o girl, and for as long as I can remember, I've had sweaty palms. I don't mean a little moisture from time to time; I have really sweaty palms almost all the time. It's embarrassing, and such a pain! I can't shake hands with people, and holding hands is something I dread doing; whenever I do either, the person looks disgusted! I go to a Catholic school, and we often have Mass during school hours. We shake hands with people, hold hands during the Our Father...But strangely, this seems to be one of the few times when I don't have a lot of sweat. It's strange, because I was reading an online article, and another person said the same thing about sweating in church. Maybe this is because church is a calming, peaceful place where I don't feel so anxious?

    As for anxiety, this definitely could be a factor. I've been diagnosed with a minor anxiety disorder, and I do worry an awful lot. Alternatively, it could have something to do with my diet. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and according to my aunt, who is a nutritionist, protein deficiency can cause a lot of problems, especially in teens.

    Anyway, I've had this problem for a very long time. I get cold, clammy hands and feet all the time. It's strange, because I'll be doing something, and then all of a sudden, I realize that my hands aren't sweating; but right then, they'll start sweating again!

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?
    By the way, I'm going to a dance this weekend. I'm a freshman, and it'll be my first one. My boyfriend's going to be there so I'd like a remedy that will be accessible by then.

    • ANSWER:
      it could be because your anxious or stressed, as for church i think your right maybe your stress free in there so you don't sweat. im not sure how you can cure it, maybe go to a doctor and ask them because they are more likely to know about it.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but you sound like me. I've had sweaty palms for my entire life - and like you said, not clammy hands, legitimately dripping, pretty nasty stuff. (I once melted my friend's silly putty by playing with it for too long.) I don't want to downplay any of the things you said - it's totally logical that this could be related to your anxiety. But if it's almost constant, and really heavy, you might have what I have.
      It's called hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy name for lots of (hyper) sweating (hydrosis). The best thing I can tell you to do is find a dermatologist in your area who actually is familiar with it. www.sweathelp.org is a great site to help you do this and to read about the condition more. There are treatments, but they vary depending on how much you sweat and how much you want to do to fix the problem. Surgery (not recommended because you start sweating heavily from other places to make up for your now dry hands) is an extreme option, but others include clinical strength anti-perspirants to try rubbing on your hands (you'd have to see a dermatologist, it's not just like rubbing clinical strength Dove or something), and something called Iontophoresis, which you can read more about on the site (this is my option of choice, though it's not that convenient - if you have questions about it you can sent me a msg).

      So far there doesn't seem like there's a permanant fix for this (ex, my hands are always gross when I use a computer, nothing I can do about it) but there are definitely options to help you out. Find a dermatologist and ask away! Don't stop if one dr hasn't heard of it - it's definitely out there and there are people who know about it. Good luck!!

  32. QUESTION:
    Why does my boyfriend sweat all the time ?
    Like in winter he will be fine , but if he walks somewhere , the corner store, he gets sweaty even when it is below zero and he is cold.

    Or he says he will be fine when he is walking then when he gets home or wherever he is going and he "stops walking" thats when he will start sweating.

    And the summer forget about it , he just sweats standing in the heat.

    He sweats from his Head , which is shaved would that have something to do with it ? His hands , back , feet , buttocks , armpits ect...

    My poor guy ;( I feel so bad for him is there anything you can buy in the store to stop this ?

    What causes this ? People say to drink alot of water , wouldnt the water make you sweat ? Because when you sweat it is water that you are sweating ? Right ?

    There is no cure for this ?

    • ANSWER:
      It could just be his genetics. I'm exactly like your boyfriend. I sweat just by sitting in the heat, all over my body. Nothing he or you can do. Drinking water hydrates the body... I don't know anything about sweating the water out... Water get exits the body when you urinate, not when you sweat.

Excess sweating leads to low estrogen level, hyperthyroidism, reduces immunity and causes social embarrassment and social isolation. The medical problems can be cured and treated much easily than the mental problems. Excessive sweating causes a lot of inferiority complex and thus it leads the patient to avoid facing public at all in turn lowering his moral and spirits. Curesweatypalms offers many solutions including some for mental and psychological treatment.
The thyroid gland is an organ, which has a lot many veins. This is located near the voice box and it absorbs iodine from the diet. Disorders of sweat glands even include the thyroid gland malfunctioning which leads to hyperhidrosis. These thyroid gland discharges thyroid hormones, which are iodine containing compounds and it, affect the body temperature and can also lead to hyperhidrosis. There is a thoracic surgery procedure mentioned at curesweatypalms, which is an ideal solution. Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland excretes excess of thyroid hormones and thus leads to hormonal imbalances, overactive thyroid gland, which increases body metabolism and heat production thus leading to hyperhidrosis, and it even causes over activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Excessive perspiration is caused by high metabolism rate and thyroid gland is very much responsible for it. This excessive sweating problem can be cured by thoracic surgery procedure.
Drysol is another name for aluminum chloride hexahydrate and is a cure for excessive perspiration. This is considered to be a good excessive perspiration treatment. But the drysol side effects normally stop us from using them that frequently to avoid excess sweating. Drysol can lead to skin irritation, rashes, and itching. This irritation usually ends when excessive perspiration treatment with drysol is stopped and it should be kept in mind that drysol can stain certain fabrics and metals when being used as excessive perspiration treatment. Excessive sweating causes lots of problems for which a solution has to be found out. Curesweatypalms has many other solutions but drysol is a good option providing the patient is comfortable with the drysol side effects.
Excess sweating caused either by disorders of sweat glands or overactive sweat glands can be cures very easily either by thoracic surgery procedure or excessive perspiration treatment. Curesweatypalms provides many cures out of which the best excessive perspiration treatment is to change your diet and to undertake medication. Normally caffeine is seen to increase body temperature. Hence it can lead to hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating problem and thus should be avoided. Moreover some medicines nay also lead to excess sweating and the physician should be contacted immediately. Curesweatypalms has all the cures and treatments for over active sweat glands and excessive sweating problem. The treatment to cure overactive sweat glands and excessive sweating problem is easily available at curesweatypalms but your physician should take into consideration your health, age, severity of the condition, allergies to specific medications, procedures and therapies. Along with thoracic surgery procedure methenamine solution is applied to control excessive perspiration. Some of the other treatments to cure hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating problem include surgical removal of the overactive sweat glands, iontophoresis, application of aluminum chloride solution and psychological counseling.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is a household easy cure for sweaty feet?
    When I wear flats for school my feet sweat, well its actually my friends. What should she do..... sock her feet in tea bags??
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Feet that are deprived of cooling air circulation will sweat no matter what.

      Either wear cotton half socks inside the flats or wear flats that are made of breathable materials.

      It helps to place absorbent insoles inside the shoes.

      Foot powder can also be helpful.

      Here is the Tea cure: Boil five tea bags in a quart of water for five minutes. When the solution cools, soak your hands or feet for twenty to thirty minutes nightly.

      Tea contains tannic acid, which is also found in commercial products such as Ivy Dry, Zilactol, and Zilactin. The astringent properties of tannic acid are thought to be partly responsible for its antiperspirant action.

    • ANSWER:
      You seem to have Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating syndrome).

      Treatments include:

      Prescription antiperspirants.

      Iontophoresis: This involves soaking the hands or feet in a basin of water through which a mild electric current is passed. It requires frequent treatments, but it's often effective at reducing sweating.

      Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Injections of this anti-wrinkle drug turn off sweat glands in the hands, feet, or armpits for months at a time. Botox is more than 90% effective as a hyperhidrosis medication. The injections can be painful, though, sometimes requiring anesthesia. (NOTE: Botox is only FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating that cannot be managed by topical agents such as prescription antiperspirants.)

      Oral hyperhidrosis medications can also reduce excessive sweating, although side effects frequently limit their use.

      In extreme cases, referral to a surgeon is an option. Surgical procedures are available to treat hyperhidrosis and can be quite effective. They often have serious side effects, though, and are considered a last resort.

  15. QUESTION:
    stinky feet in pantyhose cure, please help!?
    Sorry this is a little gross, but those of you who know, know. When I wear shoes with socks, my feet never smell. When I wear pantyhose and shoes, my feet sweat and they smell! I hate stinky feet! First thing when I get home I take off my hose and wash my feet. There has to be a product out there for that. Any suggestions? Right now I keep baby powder at my desk and sprinkle it under my desk to put my feet in. I'd sure appreciate some help from you good people out there. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      It's your shoes!

      The reason they don't smell in socks is because the cotton absorbes the sweat... In hose, nothing can absorbe the sweat....you'd have the same affect if you wore those shoes in bare feet.

      You need better, leather shoes, that can 'breath'. I guarentee if you wear hose and better shoes, you'll be fine.

  19. QUESTION:
    What causes for hands and feet to sweat? Is there any cure?

    • ANSWER:
      Oversweating or hyperhidrosis

      The primary causes of excessive perspiration are unknown but the secondary causes of excessive perspiration that aggravate the situation are identified as anxiety, obesity and psychological factors and they may be called the medical causes of excessive sweating

      Treatment - Secondary hyperhidrosis is treated by first addressing the underlying disorder.- anxiety, stress, hyperthyrodism, etc. If a patient is on hormonal therapy then administration of an anti estrogen (ciproterone acetate) can give relief to sweat attacks. Primary hyperhidrosis patients and secondary hyperhidrosis patients experiencing moderate to severe sweating not relieved otherwise may benefit from the following treatment modalities; Antiperspirants (Drysol), Iontophoresis. Medications (anti-cholinergics), Surgery- Endoscopic sympathectomy

      The following methods of treatment are ineffective: Botox, lasertherapy, Axillary sweatgland removal; alternative treatments; radiotherapy and hypnosis

  21. QUESTION:
    Who are these women with smelly feet? And where can I find them?
    I've seen tons of commercials (both on television and the web) of products that promise to cure women's foot odor. I also hear men complaining that their girlfriends/wives have stinky feet. However, I don't share these negative views of women who have smelly feet. In fact, I prefer it. I've had female friends who've told me they like the smell of a man's t shirt after he's been working out. It's the same concept. The truth is that human bodies are loaded with pheromones that are released when we sweat and may subconsciously attract the opposite sex. This is why colognes and perfumes are injected with pheromones. Of course there is a limit to all of this as no one wants a mate with excessive body odor. Feet are the exception...at least for me they are. And only female feet...exclusively. But maybe that's because I'm a guy. What do you think? Are there any women who are tired of being ashamed of their foot odor? Or can you not relate to this because your feet never stink?

    • ANSWER:
      I almost didn't respond because I'm not available for any private foot sniffing, and don't want to be a tease. But, my feet, if they are in closed shoes, will never fail to produce a swamplike stench. LOL true, gross, but true. Doesn't matter if I load my shoes with baby powder, or use odor eater type inserts. My feet conquer all, when it comes to that. I think it's because they are also very flat feet and with no arches, my feet don't breathe as much as a normal person. Sandals are the only thing that keeps the smell away.FYI. LOL

  22. QUESTION:
    Suggestions on curing sweaty feet?
    Okay, REALLY embarrassing, but I have feet that are kinda clammy/ sweaty whenever I wear shoes. They never seems to sweat when I don't have shoes on, just when I do. It started a few months ago, when I was wearing the same socks for a few days when camping with buds.(forgot more and you will wear socks again with all the creepy-crawlies) Ever since then, my feet start to stink whenever I'm done wearing shoes and they're starting to stink like sweat too. At first I thought I may have a fungus, but there's nothing growin' on my toes. So, I have no idea. Any thoughts, people??? Thank you for answering me question if you do. :)

My Feet Sweat A LOT over the course of the day and I always wash my feet and wear clean cotton socks...But last year I got lazy and started wearing no socks with my Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers. So this means I was changing for gym in the locker room with bare feet on the floor...As I said, my feet sweat a lot and I have since begun wearing socks and have bought a new pair of Converse but my feet still really stink really bad...(my brother compares it to cheddar cheese popcorn, lol) My shoes are less than a month old but they already smell pretty bad...As soon as I take my shoes off...it smells awful and my socks are quite wet..But my feet don't itch at all and I don't have a rash, burning or peely skin so im not sure if it could be athletes foot...Its very embarrassing and I have no clue how to cure this problem. Any suggestions or Cures? Home Remedys or Advice? Is this Athletes foot or some other sort of fungus? Thanks Much!

    • ANSWER:
      my shoes smell like something died in them. :) For your shoes,
      put them in the washer and wash them with a TINY bit of detergant. Take out and put in dryer.
      For Feet,
      I know this sounds weird, but make about 10-15 cups of iced tea, and soak your feet in it for about 30 minutes. This takes all the moisture, fungus, althletes foot, humidity everything out of the foot.

  26. QUESTION:
    Does botox for excessive sweating work?
    Ever since I was a toddler, I have had excessive sweating from the hands and feet. Until recently, I found out that this is called hyperhydrosis and that botox injections can help cure it. I know they offer it for underarms, but do they also do it for hands and feet and does it really work? Also, are there any possible risks to taking it? THANKS!

    • ANSWER:
      Botox injections to the hands and feet are the best way to control your hyperhidrosis. It's not a cure, as you will have to have re-injections approximately every six months, but it's been a life saver to those patients who have had the injections. Other than the cost, there is no harmful side effects.

    ok so i'm 23 and i have sweaty hands and feet. It started when i was younger around puberty and got a lil worse. It's worse on my feet and hands.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can foot burning be cured?
    My mom is bearing it since her childhood. I am really worried for her. During summers, her feet soles start burning very badly. Most of the time she can't sleep due to very intense burn. Also, her soles and palms sweat a lot. I don't know what is the reason for these? Can anybody tell me the reason of it and any possible cures.

    • ANSWER:
      I have searched and I think I found your answer:

      Peripheral Neuropathy

      This is damage to the nerves, in this case the nerves to your feet. Burning is one symptom of peripheral neuropathy, but it can also be a "pins and needles" sensation, numbness, tickling or tingling. One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. If you are experiencing burning feet and haven't had a medical checkup in a while, it is a good idea to stop putting it off and to discuss it with your doctor. Diabetes can come on at any age and it pays to begin addressing it immediately.

    • ANSWER:
      Hyperhidrosis Treatment:
      Over the past years, several different approaches have been taken to cure this socially and functionally embarrassing problem. Patients have tried herbal medications, lotions, and oral medications to end excessive sweating. None of those methods have proved to be of any lasting value. The surgical approach to this problem started about 60 years ago but, due to the location of the sympathetic nerve chain in the body, medical procedures at that time necessitated a very invasive surgery. The operation used to be done either through the neck, chest cavity, or through the back. Those invasive methods made it an unpopular operation for patients and the medical community at large. Since the introduction of minimally invasive surgery about 20 years ago, methods were developed to access the sympathetic nerve chain with minimally invasive surgery. Over the last 10 years, the endoscopic approach was finely tuned and enabled the surgeon to perform the operation on an outpatient basis (the patient returns home the same day of the procedure). The operation is very precise and the complication rate is very low. Click here to learn more about the procedure and see our slideshow presentation.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

  37. QUESTION:
    curing excessive sweating and sweaty palms?
    i have excessive sweating but mostly its on my underarms.it gets my school shirt which is white to yellow and its really embarassing.usually when like its hot in the afternoon (i go to school at that time),it sweats a lot.last year i used to go to school in the morning and it doesn't sweat unless i get nervous.i sweat on my palms n foot since i was a baby.i take caffeine a lot but i tried stopping it and it doesn't help at all.i do not coffee or tea for about 3-4 months and its still the same.PLS HELP...IT'S REALLY IMPORTANT.

    • ANSWER:
      Coming from someone who overcame the exact same problem, here's what I suggest you do:

      For your underarms, get Certain Dri. It's a deodorant that you put on at night, and it won't completely abolish your pit stains, but it will help greatly to reduce them. Take your showers at night, apply the Certain Dri, and the next morning, go through your usual routine and put on a regular deodorant like Secret, or any other brand you like. After using it for a long time, it'll start to burn when you put the Certain Dri on, so give yourself a break from it, like for example don't use it on weekends and only on schooldays.

      For your hands and feet, take Probiotics. The form I have it in is powder that you mix in with a drink. If you can't get your hands on it, try taking acidophilus; That'll help too, just not as much.

  38. QUESTION:
    Is there any way to stop Beer shakes?
    I had a heavy drinking session last night and it always happens to me, i get really bad shakes, i start sweating, my feet ache and i cant stand up, and i get VERY paranoid, the only cure is to drink again, but i dont wanna be an alcoholic, or am i already? is there any cures for it? I tried drinking plenty of water to detoxicate my body but no luck :(

    • ANSWER:
      Stop drinking. You are having alcohol withdrawal, you have a drink problem, due to binge drinking. All things in moderation

  39. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any sprays, antipersperants, underarm shields, or undershirts that will help w/hyperhidrosis?
    The thing is I a have this extremely rare skin condition called hyperhidrosis. Only 3% of the world has it. ) : People who have this condition sweat excessively in certain areas of their body. I sweat on my hands, feet, and underarms. Thankfully enough I use iontophoresis treatments which cure the sweating on my hands and feet. Unfortunatly though I still sweat on my underarms. I have tried several products for my underarms.
    The products that I have tried are:
    * Secret Clinical Strength deoderant
    * B+ Drier
    * Certain Drie
    * Kleinert underarm shields.
    * Michim's Deoderant
    * Ban Deoderant
    * Drysol

    P.S. Also, My parents will not allow me to get botox treatments or pills, as they believe that too little people know about these. My parents also think that the botox will damadge my nerves, as she read a story about a girl who lost her motion in her thumbs. They also knw that the pills will cause ur nose to bleed and mouth become dry. I also cant do surgeries.

  40. QUESTION:
    Hyperhidrosis remedies (for excessive sweating)?
    Anyone tried iontophoresis or creams and lotions to cure hyperhidrosis of palms, armpits, feet etc...?

    What kind of success did you get?

    There is a forum where there are people having success with some medications and iontophoresis --

    http://www.no-ets.com/forums

    However, some people still go for the surgery instead despite side effects.

    • ANSWER:
      If you have this problem, please see a dermatologist. However, I suspect you posted this as a "leading" question just to draw others to this website...maybe it is even your website.

      But, for those that read this question because of the topic who are looking for help, there are prescription anti-perspirants that are very successful such as aluminum tetrachloride (Xerac).

      There is also a treatment aluminum chloride hexahydrate (Drysol). You receive two or three treatments a week for a few weeks and then only need once a week after that.

      Another new treatment uses electric current to block the action of the sweat glands. It is used daily for a week and then your sweating will be relieved for a month.

  44. QUESTION:
    Can I have success with women if I sweat all over and have a lot of body hair?
    I have hyperhidrosis that can't be cured so I always sweat a ton all over, especially in my armpits and groin and chest area as well as palms and feet (smelly socks).

    Even worse, I have a ton of body hair.

    I have tried all kinds of things for the sweating, and hours of electrolysis for the body hair. Laser hair removal is expensive and doesn't work for most people unless you hae light skin and black hair. I even have hair on the sides of my stomach, in my nose, ears etc...

    Nothing has worked and I am very unfonfident of approaching women because of these sweaty hairy problems.

    I am 6 feet 175 pounds and not out of shape.

    But I look like a smelly wet ape.

    Will women care about this if I fake confidence?

    • ANSWER:
      Just try to not be too worried about it, you'll do OK. I can just imagine how you may feel towards approaching women, but don't let that stand in your way. The right person(s) will notice the good points about you and will be more understanding once you explain your problem.

      At least, though I wish it didn't have to be that way, you are aware of your problem and do your best to not smell or look bad .... a sad thing though is that many men look, smell and act bad, but they DON"T want to do anything about it.

      I knew a guy once with your condition....he has been happily married now for several years now and is well liked by others in his community. So, you are not alone in this, and people do understand.
      Hold your head up, be proud............and....

      MERRY CHRISTMAS !!

      EDITED--- I just looked this up...you might want to take a look at the website :
      http://www.hyperhidrosis.org/
      "Fortunately with the recent advances in medicine, many forms of treatment are available to treat hyperhidrosis. Medications, topical antiperspirants, iontophoresis, botox and surgery have been tried to treat hyperhidrosis. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy or ETS is the most effective method to treat hyperhidrosis. The California Institute for Hyperhidrosis and Facial Blushing provides a comprehensive site about hyperhidrosis and the ETS procedure."

  48. QUESTION:
    Why do my feet and lower legs become seriously cold?
    I notice that the area right above my ankle to my feet become seriously cold. They feel as if they are ice blocks to the touch, but i don't actually feel the extreme coldness, just a normal cold. My feet do not look discolored at all, maybe a little pale on the bottom but that's about it. I have tried to put three pairs of socks on and then covering them, but all that does is make them sweat without curing the cold.
    It normally goes away on its own, or i rub them for long periods of time until they feel normal again. There isn't really anything that i do that causes it, it just happens. If you can shine some light on this, i would really appreciate it. Thank you.

  49. QUESTION:
    Water REALLY bothers my skin?
    Since I was about 11 EVERY SINGLE TIME my hands get wet, they bother me. Enough that if I don't use hand lotion I will go into a panick until I find some. It doesn't hurt, but the feeling is like my finger prints have doubled, and I feel like my skin went as dry as leather. I've gotten so bad that I DO NOT wash my hands at all during the day...no matter what. And if I know I'll be getting wet (shower or swimming) I make SURE I have lotion around. Even lotion doesn't cure it 100%, only time does that, and it's usually 30 minutes to an hour.
    Any Dermatologists out there who have heard of a similar condition? I've had it for like 19 years.
    I hate bathing my kids with rubber gloves. And, I would love the idea of actually wanting to go swimming. Right now when I hear swimming, all I think about are my hands.
    It bothers my feet some too, but not nearly as bad. And if I put socks on and make my feet sweat, it's not so bad. Someone help!!
    I know that this could very likely be a mental thing, but I would like to know if it might be a real problem before I made a decision.
    I have been diagnosed recently with excema, but I didn't know that it could possibly cause this. Though, the excema, if that really is what it is, isn't on my hands. It just makes my legs itch like CRAZY with no visual reason, and then on my neck, and hip I get break outs that look like ring worm but the doctor said they were excema. I'm not sure though. But, the cream he gave me did work. Still, I don't know if that would be the cause of my hand problem. Something to consider though for sure!!
    And it's 100% the water, not soap that causes this. I could just dip my hand into nothing but water, and it would happen.

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe chlorine/chemicals in water? I grew up with well water (was like spring water-not stinky or dirty) and never had problems with dry, itchy skin except maybe in winter time, but that's a given. When I moved to the city and started using city water, my skin became really dry and itchy regardless of season. And sometimes I get that creepy crawly feeling, you know like bugs are all over you. I moved to my current city location and hate, HATE the water. I'm in the shower and itch like crazy. I often wonder exactly what the city puts in its water. I've lived here for 5 years and we are almost to our 4th water faucet in the kitchen. The water has corroded every one! The last one ended up breaking off!! This current one has tiny holes that water leaks through when you turn it on.....hmmm after reading what I just wrote, I think I'm going to go have it tested.....

  50. QUESTION:
    How do i stop sweating?
    yeah i have one of those excessive sweating problems it really sux and its on my hands, feet, armpits, and if im dying nervous, anywhere else (besides my face). anyways its not cuz of the weather or anything cuz it always happens and im really sick of it. so the question isnt about what i have i just want to know some good ways to cure it... i know there are lots of anti-persperants for armpits but hands and feet? plus what if they dont work? thx and please answer cuz i really need help on this one i wanna stop sweating as soon as possible oh and btw dont say anything that doesnt really work just for advertisement cuz im serious here no jokes.

    • ANSWER:
      Well I used to sweat a lot from the armpits. It really sucks and it used to piss the hell out of me cause the sweat would damage my nice white clothes.

      CERTAIN DRI worked for me. On the little packet that it comes with it states that it can be used on the feet as well. Thats two out of three. Please don't get Botox that is highly risky.

  6. QUESTION:
    Cold hands and feet what could be wrong?
    I always have cold hands and feet that are often an annoyance. I wash them with warm water but after around 5 minutes or so they get cold again. My hands are normal color(reddish even)however my hands are often cold. However when my hands get sweaty and warm during exercise and after eating. Also I am underweight so could that be causing it? btw I am 13. Also, i often walk barefoot on the cold hard wood floors. my hands have never been able to keep warm for long, and after warming up within the hour my hands become cold again (usually quite cold) much to the chagrin of anyone i come in contact with (besides the summertime when my extremities are often quite warm, and i know it is summertime but here it is quite cold, i live on the mountainside where it drops to about 4 degrees overnight in the middle of the summer) i also notice that my feet are even colder, washing them with warm water is the only solution but they get cold again after a while. also, could this possibly be affecting my weight (perhaps i don't absorb enough nutrients because all the calories go to my hands? i don't know?) Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
    btw i do not have a slow metabolism, i eat often eat much more than my parents and yet i do not gain a pound, when my friend is gaining about 30 pounds/year even though hes already overweight

    • ANSWER:
      This could be multiple things. The most common are, anxiety (which causes the blood to flow to the organs and away from your extremities), and problems with circulation. You don't need a high level of anxiety to alter blood flow (signs would be feeling like you don't want to sit still or restlessness). Both of these can be helped. If you want better circulation you could start running/exercising which would improve this a lot. You could also take a natural vasodilator (something that would make the blood vessels relax, like Arginine). Once your circulation gets better it will help the problem. To get rid of anxiety you can go two routes, natural or use prescription medication. Personally I recommend natural remedies. A natural way that is proven would be kavalactones (they potentiate gamma-aminobutyric acid which is a neurotransmitter that will reduce anxiety). Kavalactones have been shown to be as effective as benzodiazapines. As a side note I have used them before these before with remarkable success.

  7. QUESTION:
    Are sweaty hands and feet in infants normal?
    My 4 month old daughter always seems to have sweaty hands and feet. At first, it was just her feet, and now it seems like she has sweaty hands. We do dress her warm because it's still pretty cold here at night. But usually, we give her feet some air by taking off her socks, and don't put a onesie on her, just a sleep and play. Then sometimes during the day when she's just wearing a sleep and play, she'll sweat a bit during her naps. Our room doesn't generate heat for some reason like the rest of the house does, so it's rare if the heat comes on in our room. So usually it's either very cold, or in a comfortable temperature. Is this normal for infants to have sweaty hands and feet? Or is it generic? My dad and I usually as sweaty feet, but not as much as my daughter. What is this caused by?

    • ANSWER:
      I never thought babies sweat untill my dd was born. She is like her daddy, there bodies feel cold different than I do. I am always cold and very bundled up. I realized after my dd would wake up soaked from sweat that she isn't like me and needs less clothes. So she slept in light weight pj's never with feet(she HATED feeties and socks when she slept)
      Babies bodies are alot different than ours so, she may seem to sweat more than you and your dad but...as babies maybe???you and your dad sweat more?

  8. QUESTION:
    sweaty palms and hands?
    I am 20 year old female and I have sweaty and cold hands and feet since i was young. It sometimes goes away and comes back randomly. and sometimes my finger tips swell up.. what could cause this?

    • ANSWER:

  9. QUESTION:
    Icy cold hands and feet, excessive heat / sweating everywhere else?
    I have a history of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating…at least that's the closest any doctor could narrow it down to). Even when it's not that hot out, I sweat all over, more profusely in the pelvic and groin region, and occasionally just as bad in my underarms. Until recently, I have gotten around this problem by wearing breathable undergarments, and by avoiding heavy clothing like sweaters and jackets, unless it's frostbite weather. But my problem only gotten worse, not better.

    It started earlier this year, when I began to notice something unique about my sweaty bits - they are extremely hot to the touch! For example, I can hold my hand out in front of my groin, several inches away, and literally feel the heat radiating from my skin like it's a portable space-heater! No wonder I sweat so much down there…the heat alone must send my sweat glands into overdrive. It makes me wonder if my own body heat could ever render me infertile.

    If that weren't enough, on the complete other end of the spectrum, my hands and feet have become really, really cold as of late - like I'm holding icepacks (think: Edward Cullen hands). Granted, it's nearing the end of Fall where I live, and the climate is certainly more bitter than in previous months; but even now as I am typing this, in the comfort of my toasty apartment, everything beneath my armpits and below the belt is sweltering hot, while my fingers are clacking against the keyboard like frozen sausages! What the hell? I refuse to wear gloves inside my own home!

    By now I've done more research on these symptoms than a med student and have gotten nowhere. My primary care physician is useless, and I don't have the money to see a specialist (and what specialist would that even be…an endocrinologist…a dermatologist?). I just need to know what could possibly be causing this persistent and unequal distribution of body heat, and what can I do about it?

    • ANSWER:
      You do sound as if you have hyperhidrosis, something many suffer from, never even knowing it has a name. There are specific types of hyperhidrosis, generalized, which is all over. I think I have the same kind you have, in the groin. It has a specific name, which escapes me at this precise moment in time, but it is miserable. That I can not forget. I have dealt with this for over 40 years and it has only been recently that I found the name: hyperhidrosis, but I have for several years experienced the cold hands and feet. Though that phase is over for me, hopefully. However I have had the sweaty crotch for years and years. I now live in Florida, and it is very warm here. Out of sheer despiration I designed and made something from muslin fabric that wraps around the crotch of ones briefs, encapsulating the elastic and keeping soggy elastic from digging into the skin, and allowing for evaporation. When the Wrapps get damp, unhook and toss in the laundry. It takes seconds to put a new dry, clean, cool Wrapp in place. The Extra P stands for perspiration.

      I am affilliated with a website, Very Sweaty Betty, it is a group of hyperhidrosis sufferers, there is no fee to join. People discuss medications, proceedures, topical soloutions and what works for them. We find friendship in our skin dis-ease and get suggestions for new things that might help eachother. No one is trying to sell you anything. I hope you come to Very Sweaty Betty and have a look around, feel free to sign up hear what others, like yourself endure. We have a nurse who is a member and a sufferer and she is always up for giving honest advise, to enable us to find a decent doctor who will acknowledge our plight.

      Remember, what may work for someone else may not work for you. But there is always someone there for you.

  11. QUESTION:
    Is being cold a symptom of poor blood circulation?
    I am always cold, and find myself complaining of being cold when others say they are "burning up." I often wear jackets in the summer time, and if I sit still for long periods of time my hands are cold but sweaty and my feet are very cold and clammy.

    I cannot remember this happening for all my life, I have only recently noticed it (as in the past few years.) The only significant lifestyle changes I have made are choosing vegetarianism, and I am also thinking that lack of protein in my body could be causing this.

    • ANSWER:
      Poor circulation is a possibility, but there is also this disorder known as hyperhydrosis in which your hands and feet sweat constantly and are cold almost all of the time. This also messes with your body temperature in 2 different ways. You can either be always hot or either be always cold.

  13. QUESTION:
    Clamy feet and hands.?
    I have this problem with really clammy hands and feet. I've had it since I was in middle school (I'm 16 now) and I was wondering what it could be. My feet are often ice cold and sweaty and so are my hands. It doesn't seem to be caused by stress but stress does worsen it. I was wondering if there is a reason for this and what can be done to cure it. I'm pretty healthy (knock on wood) and no one in my family has anything similar. Please help!

  14. QUESTION:
    Pheochromocytoma question?
    Anyone else suffer from it or know someone who has it?

    Are these symptoms common with Pheo?

    Pallor, Loss of Weight, Constant Anxiety, Sinus Tachycardia, Colour change to nail beds, thinning of skin, dark circles under eyes, chest/arm pain, indigestion/burping, dark patches on skin, small lumps under skin, occasional elevation in blood pressure, cold sweaty hands and feet, trembling, loss of balance, visual disturbances and dilation of pupils?

    What causes Pheo?
    Thanks for your answers, I have had a number of blood tests but not sure if the Pheo would show up. Doc... Can you tell me if it would show up in the following tests (i.e. abnormal levels):-
    Full Blood Count
    Thyroid Function (TSH)
    T4 and TFT Free
    Serum Calcuim
    Serum Potassium
    Serum Sodium
    Liver Function
    Kidney Function
    Urine Sample (basic test)
    Creatinine
    Urea and Electrolytes
    EGFR
    Random Glucose
    Albumin
    Serum Bilirubin
    Folate
    Blood Cultures

    Chest X Ray
    ECG

    These are all tests I have done recently, FBC has been done three times, I've had 2 ECG's and my Thyroid tests have been done today for a 4th time as all the previous levels were normal.
    Medicinenet.com is useful but it is an American site and some of the tests done in the UK are different to America, like the T3 test, you have to pester the GP's here for that test and they are still reluctant to do it. An MRI over here if routine would take up to 3 months to get the appointment.

    • ANSWER:
      There is a small gland above the kidneys which is known as the suprarenal or adrenal gland. It is a hormone producing factory which synthesizes very important hormones for our body. Its inner portion is known as 'medulla' . the inner portion synthesizes epinephrine/adrenaline, which is a hormone required for 3f reaction (fright, fight and flight) or in other words whenever one gets in danger this hormones comes to the rescue.
      Think of this situation as if u r walking down an empty street at night and suddenly 3 wild dogs start chasing u. U d run like hell, sweat a lot and all the blood in ur body d get diverted to skeletal muscle, heart and brain, which d inevitably push the blood pressure to higher level. These r the basic symptoms of pheochromocytoma.

      Pheochromocytoma occurs when the cells of adrenal medulla are converted into a tumor/neoplasm and start secreting epinephrine even when it is not required by the body, cause is usually unknown/idiopathic.

      Surest way of knowing it is that if u get tested for it. Standard blood tests d give a hint but ct scan of abdomen is much more sensitive in picking it up.

  15. QUESTION:
    Cold Feet ?????? Why?
    My hands and feet get ice cole and sweaty at the same time. so i cant cover them with blankets, or wear socks to keep them warm. At the same time they are freezing cold, fingers and toes almost turning blue. Whats wrong with me?

    Let me know if you have any knowledge about hormonal imbalance or diabetes or some other thing, that might be causing this.

    • ANSWER:
      I have the same problem. You most likely have poor circulation. You can easily identify this by looking at your fingernails. If you are missing the little white moons and the bottoms of your fingernails (not thumb nails) then you have a circulation problem. I only have tiny moons on my index fingers, but I'm missng the rest. I feel for you because I hate having freezing hands and feet all the time.

    • ANSWER:
      You should go to the doctor and explain your symptoms. However, I suffer from migraines, hyperhydrosis(this is a sweating condition) which there is not alot you can do about this, and I was thirsty alot too. I am a diabetic, but this does not mean you are. These symptoms are very general and can be caused by many different conditions. They may not even be related. I would suggest a doctor visit for you. I do have a hyperhydrosis article on my webiste at www.womensventandview.com if you want to read more about that.

      Good Luck!

  17. QUESTION:
    1.)What is the key objective when writing a paragraph on synthesis? 2.)Do you feel the author was effective? A?
    1.)What is the key objective when writing a paragraph on synthesis? 2.)Do you feel the author was effective? A synthesis pulls together information from two or more sources to make a new point that the individual sources have not provided. For example, the student who wrote the above analysis interviewed her male and female student friends and wrote a paper that compared her fi ndings to those of the studies cited in Discovering Psychology. Because she wanted to understand the hassles that people experience and the symptoms that they cause, she incorporated additional information from published research. In Discovering Psychology, Hockenbury and Hockenbury present evidence that males and females react to different sources of stress and respond differently to them. The studies they use as evidence discuss only married couples, however, and they provide few details about the actual kinds and symptoms of stress. Several other studies, as well as original research done among unmarried college students, provide some additional insights into these questions. In an article on stress published in Encarta, Gramling and Auerbach provide many examples of daily hassles that they claim affect adults ingeneral, including “living in a noisy neighborhood, commuting to work in heavy traffi c, disliking one’s fellow workers, standing in long lines, and worrying about owing money.” The Web site Diabetes at Work gives a list of the “Top 10 Daily Hassles,” among them illness of a family member, home repairs, too many things to do, and crime. Neither of these sources mentions gender differences in the types of hassles reported. Gramling and Auerbach list many symptoms of stress. These include nail biting, cold or sweaty hands and feet, dry mouth, and increased heart rate. Diabetes at Work adds muscle tension, upset stomach, shortness of breath, and back pain to the list of physical symptoms and forgetfulness, trouble concentrating, trouble making decisions, and short temper to the psychological symptoms. Again, though, neither source mentioned gender differences. To these sources, I added interviews with eight friends — four men and four women — who all reported these top fi ve daily hassles: worries about money, transportation problems, waiting in lines, unfair bosses, and automated phone systems that take forever and never get you an answer. The only signifi cant difference in the kind of hassles reported by the men and women I talked to was that several women (but not men) mentioned worries about physical safety (for example, while traveling home from school at night). When I asked my friends to report how they dealt with their stress, they seemed to confi rm the Hockenburys’ claim that women’s stress spills into the family and men tend to withdraw. Two men reported no psychological symptoms of stress, whereas the remaining six people (four women and two men) emphasized both psychological and physical symptoms. These sources suggest that there might be some gender differences in the hassles that people experience and the symptoms that result from these hassles, but they might not be as major as the Hockenburys’ passage led me to expect. Most of the stresses mentioned seem to be caused by having to do too much in too little time. Perhaps this is a comment on the quality of modern life, which affects both men and women equally.

    • ANSWER:
      "Synthesis" is a dishonest way of saying "conceptualizing". It makes it sound as if there is more to the process.

      "A concept is a mental integration of two or more units which are isolated by a process of abstraction and united by a specific definition. By organizing his perceptual material into concepts, and his concepts into wider and still wider concepts, man is able to grasp and retain, to identify and integrate an unlimited amount of knowledge, a knowledge extending beyond the immediate concretes of any given, immediate moment."
      Ayn Rand

      That is how "synthesis" works, but apparently when Kant and others tried to create their philosophical systems, explaining the process of conceptualizing wasn't enough for them. It doesn't matter that it may be an entire academic paper we're talking about, rather than just one little concept. The point remains that the subject of the paper is only once concept, when you look for the axiomatic concept upon which that paper rests.

      "The assault on man’s conceptual faculty has been accelerating since Kant, widening the breach between man’s mind and reality. The cognitive function of concepts was undercut by a series of grotesque devices—such, for instance, as the “analytic-synthetic” dichotomy which, by a route of tortuous circumlocutions and equivocations, leads to the dogma that a “necessarily” true proposition cannot be factual, and a factual proposition cannot be “necessarily” true."
      Rand

      Authoring a non-fictional paper requires the same elements as fiction, except for one. It requires a central theme, which may be the axiomatic concept; or it may be various subjects abstracted from that theme. The one element non-fiction cannot have in common with fiction is the necessity of the reader to search for his "suspension of disbelief". You are not supposed to suspend your disbelief when reading fiction.

      Other than that, conceptualization (synthesis) is, as Rand and many other artists of all types have pointed out, a recreation of reality based on what the artist (author, doctor, academician) wants to put into it.

My gf says that I always feel hot when I rub her feet, back, or if we are holding hands. When playing vid games, every i know's hands get cold, while mine sweat and I have to wipe off my controller. What causes your skin/body temp to change? At work when its 60+ i have to go stand in the freezer to cool off at times.

    • ANSWER:
      Have you gained weight recently by any chance? I know when I weighed 90 lb heavier, I use to be like that. Now I find it fairly rare for me to sweat when it's under 80F, where before I had to have it under 70F for me to be comfortable.

      If you haven't gained weight and maybe even find it hard to stop losing weight, your thyroid might be a bit off. It might be something to go see your doctor about in this case.

  19. QUESTION:
    Why am I CONSTANTLY sweaty!?
    I know,disgusting. I hate it like HELL...but my whole body is always sweaty. It's mostly my hands,feet,and underarms,though. Most of the time they are just plain sweaty dispite room temperature,but sometime they get really REALLY cold and sweaty. Sometimes to the point where I feel like I have to wrap myself in blankets and take a hot shower to feel better. It actually makes me cold all over. I also have a sort of sensitivity to temperature (but that's not always the cause of the sweating.) I get cold and hot VERY easily and it doesn't help the constant sweating at ALL. I have tried EVERYTHING. (Prescription strength,prescription...etc.) Nothing is helping me and i am tired of changing clothes every three hours and stuffing tissue paper under my arms. It's embarrassing,gross,and it's starting to really piss me off (pardon my French.)
    Uh,that's kind of a rude question to ask but no. I'm not fat.

  20. QUESTION:
    Why do I have sweaty palms? Any remedies?
    I'm a 14 y/o girl, and for as long as I can remember, I've had sweaty palms. I don't mean a little moisture from time to time; I have really sweaty palms almost all the time. It's embarrassing, and such a pain! I can't shake hands with people, and holding hands is something I dread doing; whenever I do either, the person looks disgusted! I go to a Catholic school, and we often have Mass during school hours. We shake hands with people, hold hands during the Our Father...But strangely, this seems to be one of the few times when I don't have a lot of sweat. It's strange, because I was reading an online article, and another person said the same thing about sweating in church. Maybe this is because church is a calming, peaceful place where I don't feel so anxious?

    As for anxiety, this definitely could be a factor. I've been diagnosed with a minor anxiety disorder, and I do worry an awful lot. Alternatively, it could have something to do with my diet. I've been a vegetarian since I was 9, and according to my aunt, who is a nutritionist, protein deficiency can cause a lot of problems, especially in teens.

    Anyway, I've had this problem for a very long time. I get cold, clammy hands and feet all the time. It's strange, because I'll be doing something, and then all of a sudden, I realize that my hands aren't sweating; but right then, they'll start sweating again!

    Does anyone know of any cures/remedies? Or might anyone know some of the causes of this problem?

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but you sound like me. I've had sweaty palms for my entire life - and like you said, not clammy hands, legitimately dripping, pretty nasty stuff. (I once melted my friend's silly putty by playing with it for too long.) I don't want to downplay any of the things you said - it's totally logical that this could be related to your anxiety. But if it's almost constant, and really heavy, you might have what I have.
      It's called hyperhidrosis, which is just a fancy name for lots of (hyper) sweating (hydrosis). The best thing I can tell you to do is find a dermatologist in your area who actually is familiar with it. www.sweathelp.org is a great site to help you do this and to read about the condition more. There are treatments, but they vary depending on how much you sweat and how much you want to do to fix the problem. Surgery (not recommended because you start sweating heavily from other places to make up for your now dry hands) is an extreme option, but others include clinical strength anti-perspirants to try rubbing on your hands (you'd have to see a dermatologist, it's not just like rubbing clinical strength Dove or something), and something called Iontophoresis, which you can read more about on the site (this is my option of choice, though it's not that convenient - if you have questions about it you can sent me a msg).

      So far there doesn't seem like there's a permanant fix for this (ex, my hands are always gross when I use a computer, nothing I can do about it) but there are definitely options to help you out. Find a dermatologist and ask away! Don't stop if one dr hasn't heard of it - it's definitely out there and there are people who know about it. Good luck!!

    Whats up with me? Help please?
    I'm going to see a doctor next week. My symptoms are: always warm (not feverish but warm), fatigue, and sweaty hands and feet most of the time. My hands will get clammy. I've been doing some research i don't think its hyperhidrosis, as this usually comes with cold, clammy body parts. My feet and hands are warm to the touch and i get hot very easily. I've only noticed this in the past couple months or so. I started to have sweaty feet and hands (mild id say) beginning of this year.

    So my guesses are Hyperhidrosis, Hyperthyriodism, or Hormone imbalance of some sort. I can only really narrow it done to these. Maybe i just have a High core temperature. But why is this only appearing now. Im 18 and this only began after turning 17. I was fine up till then. Any help guys.

    Also, im quite slim. Fatigue could be due to me being inactive of late. And i dont drink much water which may be a cause as well..

    Any thoughts, thanks

    • ANSWER:
      For sweaty feet, soak in a vinegar water hot bath for about a week, every night for about twenty minutes. That will seal the pores and maybe help. After you soak and dry your feet thoroughly, powder them even corn starch will help. Gold Bond makes a powder in a blue canister that is also soothing and helpful. This is an annoying problem, but need not be medicalized.

    Social anxiety disorder : Also called social phobia, social anxiety disorder involves overwhelming worry and self-consciousness about everyday social situations. The worry often centers on a fear of being judged by others, or behaving in a way that might cause embarrassment or lead to ridicule.

    Generalized anxiety disorder : This disorder involves excessive, unrealistic worry and tension, even if there is little or nothing to provoke the anxiety.

    Feelings of panic, fear and uneasiness
    Uncontrollable, obsessive thoughts
    Cold or sweaty hands
    An inability to be still and calm
    Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
    Nausea

    please help

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there! Well first of all you named two disorders....Social anxiety and Generalized anxiety are very different.
      If you think you have Social anxiety your symptoms should be similar to those you write first - fear of being judged, fear of being center of the attention, extreme shyness, uncomfertability in all social situations, confusion, unexplainable fear etc. And from physical symptoms you should feel: like you gonna have a heart attack, fast heart beating, hyperventilating, shaking/trembling all over, sweating etc.

      If this is what you have then you are right, it is Social Phobia.
      My advice to you is to say it to somebody so you can get help in treating it. It is curable and you are not the only one who has it - it is very common problem, so don't worry. But it takes time to recover. So start with it as soon as possible because if not treated fear can grow and you might have only bigger problems (people are always afraid of the things they don't know).

      My fiance has SA and I know how it goes...luckly, he is now on his way of recovery :) (not to dare the devil)

      DON'T try treating yourself with ANY kind of medications that you can read about on internet...ONLY doctor can do that, as you can make things even worse! Please be careful with it!

      Speak to who you can, just say what you asume and ask for help to deal with it better...Everyone would be glad to help.

      If you need someone to talk to or ask anything else feel free to write me:
      lina_girl06@yahoo.com

      I'll be glad to help if i can...

      All the best!

    • ANSWER:
      I think you have dysphoria, which tends to be long-term. It is a step above full-blown depression, and tends to leave one feeling flat. Your anxiety could be part of it, or might be Generalized Anxiety Disorder, which can affect many body functions, including circulation and poor appetite.

      I would go to my primary care doctor for a physical (to check for low thyroid, anemias, etc.) and if the results show you are healthy, which I doubt, given your diet, he would then give you a referral to a psychiatrist. When you see either doctor bring this list with you. It will save time and get you a more precise diagnosis more quickly.

      Your psychiatrist will get a mental history from you, find out how you're feeling now, and may administer some written tests for depression. He will probably give you medication to take. If it doesn't work within two weeks, call back and let him know. He can try you on a medication from another class of meds.

      I hope you are feeling better soon. Good luck!!

  27. QUESTION:
    Hot feet and trembling hands after running and a shower?
    That happened a couple of days ago. I spent the morning (9am-1pm) outdoors playing basketball. Not continuously. I think only 20% of my time was spent actually playing, the rest was spent talking (:

    Later on I went for a 3-4miler (maybe about 5k?) at about 6pm. It wasn't a very hardcore run. Moderate speed.

    After that I couldn't stand having been sticky and gross all day so I jumped into the shower about 5 minutes after my run. I guess I wasn't really thinking at that point in time 'cause my mother said I would get spots from showering when still sweaty.

    But what was weird was that after I got out of the (cold) shower my body was still burning hot, especially my feet! I stuck them in a bucket of cold water with ice cubes but I didn't cool completely until after a few hours.

    Also, at dinner my hands were trembling. My sister called it overexertion but I'm sure I didn't overexert. So what could be the problem?

    • ANSWER:
      The trembling hands can be due to a lack of potassium or just dehydration. The feet can also be attributed to the same reason.

  28. QUESTION:
    Pressure in head due to anxiety?
    When I'm talking infront of a large group of people, or my friends in general, or even on the phone, the pressure on the right side of my head tends to rise, I get a "being detached from reality" feeling but I remain concious and vigilant-and there is a lot of throbbing (not painful) in the temporal lobe right by the ear, this usually goes away when I relax, but I hate it, because it gives me more anxiety, makes me more dizzy and causes me to drop something I still feel like doing, also, my feet and hands get cold and sweaty, wtf? honestly-KonstantinO
    Please don't tell me to go see a doctor immediately because I did and my blood pressure was slightly elivated, but ecg tests of the kidneys and heart are fine, an mri came through ok about a year ago

    • ANSWER:
      It's all anxiety I had that same exact feeling too!

  29. QUESTION:
    Hands won't stop sweating?
    I fu*king hate my hands. They sweat 24 seven. And it is so annoying. It can be -2 outside and they will still fu*cking sweat. Its horrible. I can NEVER touch somebody else's hand or anything because it disgusts them. I hate it. And whats worse is that when my hand sweats, its like a trigger for my armpit and legs and feet to sweat, which makes it so uncomfortable. I am sick of it. The only time my hands are dry is when I wake up and maybe 1 hour after that. otherwise it has to be extremely cold outside for them to be normal. My hands are usually freezing cold. But then again thats barely noticable because their usually sweating like f*** as usual. I cannot make them stop unless I sleep. Its so irritating. And embarassing. I have a crush on some girl at school, but I keep reminding myself I could never get close because my hands are so sweaty. Their not so bad as I can't hold a pencil. But their bad enough as to make it that I need to wipe my hands every 10 second or shake them around to cool them off. It makes everything worse. As i t starts my armpits to sweat then my shirt is damp where the armpit is and its so embarrasing. I usually have a sweater that masks that but doesn't cover the hands. Also it causes my feet and legs to sweat., That makes is even worse. My feet arn't a problem as their in shoes and the shoes don't really stink. But my legs make the back of my pants damp which is horrible when I'm sitting as people can notice. I have to sit at the edge of the chair to keep cool and it doesn't always work. Why can't someone tell me WHYY it happens to me. If their was a sweat organ I would annihilate it. It's not so much as I'm concerned by now, just absolutely furious

    • ANSWER:
      I don't bother to read this. but from hands sweating, one thing I know about this is it got something to do with the Heart problem. There might something wrong with your heart and I mean it literally.

      I once have this problem too, when I begun to follow doctor advice to exercise more, get my heart to beat at stable rate. Now I don't have this problem anymore.

  31. QUESTION:
    What should I tittle this poem? Other suggestions? Warning: very long?
    Cheesy-ish poem about a crush, suggestions (mostly for a tittle) are very much welcome as I have never really written this kind of poem. Most of my poems are about slightly more negative emotions like depression or anger. Here goes:

    I remember the first time that I saw you
    You were wearing a polka dot tie
    Your eyes were like blue ice chips
    Surprisingly tropical
    Glinting in the sun
    I remember seeing you again this summer
    In the freezing dark you hugged me
    And I never felt so warm
    Then there was that time
    I took your flannel shirt back to the shelter
    I carefully looked around
    No one was there
    So I smelt it, you smell like woodsmoke
    Cozy and musky
    I was embarrassed
    But I needed to memorize that scent
    I remember you telling me
    That I talk in my sleep
    That me and another camper
    Had sleep conversations
    I certainly remember the time
    I put duct tape on my mouth
    Because I was afraid of
    What I was talking about
    I remember...
    Us arguing about baseball teams
    Your love for the Red Socks
    My love for the Yankees
    In my mind I liked to think
    That this was similar to Romeo
    And Juliet
    I remember you shaving my mohawk
    For the very first time
    Telling my stories, all the while
    When you ran away from home
    Because your parents wouldn't
    Let you get one
    When you wore chucks to prom
    The times you get mad at your mom
    'Cause she washes your carhartts
    And you like to let them age
    I remember your big orange head joke
    No one got it at first
    But when it hit me
    I couldn't stop laughing
    I remember your rye smile
    Contagious as can be
    You telling me off
    For eating to fast
    Saying my luck
    Might not last
    Watching you knit hats
    And you wore mine
    In my fedora
    You liked mighty fine
    I remember holding your hand
    Standing in the circle
    My hands were clammy
    And sweaty, and cold
    Yours were softly calloused
    And warm, like a fire
    Like the sun
    I didn't hear a single announcement
    Didn't hear a single word
    I was to busy keeping calm
    Trying not to shake with nerves
    On my last day of camp
    I left you a note
    I only had the courage
    Because I wouldn't be seeing you again
    Not for a while at least
    I made close to a hundred rough drafts
    And I left it on your pillow
    These are just a few of the things
    I wish I had said instead of
    “Your really cool,
    My favorite counselor”
    I remember concentrating on your feet
    Because you were wearing a two piece
    It was light blue
    I learned how to say your name and I love in sign language
    That's how my friends and I would commute
    I remember finding out you know sign language, woops...
    I remember you telling me how you
    Envision me as an adult
    I agree, I would go camping
    With twenty pounds of s'mores
    I offered to do every chore
    On our trip
    Probably to impress you
    But I'd never let you know
    I guess thats just the way that crushing goes
    I remember hiking nine miles
    In the pouring rain
    And not noticing the pain of five blisters
    Because I was just to entertained
    Thinking of you, and the way you drive me insane
    Haha, I like the idea for "Warning: Too long" I have a bad habbit of turning poems into three page long rants that never seem to get to the point. I have I think decided on "Duct Tape" though.
    Actually I think I'm going with "Duct Tape: The Way Crushing Goes"

    • ANSWER:
      "Warning: Too Long."
      "Just Another Poem."
      "I Stalk You."

  32. QUESTION:
    I haven't been feeling myself?
    For two months now, I have felt sick and not like I used to feel all the time. It seems that ever since I threw up 2 months ago, I have felt this way. Soon after that I got a viral infection and felt nauseous all the time and it stuck with me since then. Here is how it sort of went:
    One afternoon at school I was sitting with my friends at lunch and I had spaghetti thinking nothing of it. I felt fine for the last period but then when school got out and I was walking to my mom's car, I started feeling sick. I was kind of confused and worried, but I got in and went home. I was wicked tired and felt so gross so I took a nap. When I woke up I felt completely sick to my stomach and didn't want to go anywhere, but I had to go out to my mom's friend's house. In the car on the way there I felt sick, and then when I got to her friend's house I started getting really hot, clammy, shaky, sweaty and nauseous. I ran to the bathroom terrified because I am deathly afraid of vomiting and I almost threw up but forced it down. When I got home, I had a horrific stomach ache that lasted 8 hours and then I had that feeling again. Because I couldn't stand considering the stomach ache, I thought I could crawl or something to the door for cold air, but I moved the wrong way and I vomited. Then my dad found spaghetti in it. So I thought it was lunch, but then the next time I went to school I didn't eat much because I was just sick so I just had water practically all day. I started eating a bit again but not like I was before I was sick. I was skeptical about everything I ate and I still am. I hung out with my friends the first 1-2 weeks when school ended feeling great - I was swimming every day and laughing all the time. Then on her trampoline I hurt my back, and like 2 days after that I started feeling blah and didn't want to do anything. Then I got a viral infection and felt like I was going to throw up all the time which made me cry and worry. I tried praying and getting better but the next day or week or month I would either feel worse or the same. Since then I have felt this:
    -Nausea
    -Loss of appetite
    -Fatigue
    -Anxiety
    -Depression
    -Hot throughout shoulders, upper back and neck
    -My jaw is clenched most of the time
    -Clammy hands, feet, underarms
    -Trouble swallowing
    -Shakes
    I have gone to the doctor 3 or 4 times but all they can say is it's anxiety.
    (Also, I normally go to bed around midnight or later so that may be a factor)
    I keep trying to tell them it's not, like maybe a little but that's not all true. Like, when I want to eat, I won't or can't. My doctor doesn't know what is causing this. She said it could be a mix of different things and I'm not sure if it's heat, PMS, anxiety, depression I just don't know and it's scaring me because it has been going on for so long. I haven't gone over my friends house in two months because I don't feel well and I'm paranoid about vomiting and getting more sick or something bad happening. Also, school is starting so soon and that gets me very worried. I'm also not sure if I could feel this way from grief because soon after I heard my dad's best friend died (Rest in peace <3 We all loved him so much) I stayed up 'till one am crying and then 2,3 days later, I became sick and felt weird. I'm really sorry this was so long, but thank you to all who took the time to read it and help me. I just don't know what to do :'(
    Ps. After reading an answer I should put that I have had 2 blood tests done now and everything came back negative except for one thing which came back positive, but she said the increase in something (I completely forget the name of this chemical, but it has to do with bones and another thing) was higher than usual, but she said it was from my bones which could be because I'm having a growth spurt. Could that bea factor?

    • ANSWER:
      Your doctor needs to start running tests until she can conclude that there is no physical reason for these symptoms.

      It sounds a lot like anxiety, but I wouldn't believe it until it's proven that the virus is gone, there are no other infections, the thyroid is right, no mono...everything she can think of. Run the tests.

  33. QUESTION:
    Why does my boyfriend sweat all the time ?
    Like in winter he will be fine , but if he walks somewhere , the corner store, he gets sweaty even when it is below zero and he is cold.

    Or he says he will be fine when he is walking then when he gets home or wherever he is going and he "stops walking" thats when he will start sweating.

    And the summer forget about it , he just sweats standing in the heat.

    He sweats from his Head , which is shaved would that have something to do with it ? His hands , back , feet , buttocks , armpits ect...

    My poor guy ;( I feel so bad for him is there anything you can buy in the store to stop this ?

    What causes this ? People say to drink alot of water , wouldnt the water make you sweat ? Because when you sweat it is water that you are sweating ? Right ?

    There is no cure for this ?

    • ANSWER:
      It could just be his genetics. I'm exactly like your boyfriend. I sweat just by sitting in the heat, all over my body. Nothing he or you can do. Drinking water hydrates the body... I don't know anything about sweating the water out... Water get exits the body when you urinate, not when you sweat.

  34. QUESTION:
    What is this?? Can it be an infection or an std or is it just part of growing up?
    Ok so i sixteen and i was with this one girl but we didn't have sex. we were just playing around and i got all excited so i got on top of her but we had clothes. i had shorts on and she had shorts on and it was very sweaty. so we had sweat. but we didnt have regular sex... nothing.. but after i felt very weak so i took a shower and when i got out i had like red dots on my body and they became more and more and then they went away but everyday i was feeling tired. so its been a year and the red dots have gone away but im still very tired so i take vitamins to give me energy. so now i look at my penis and i have like red pimples or dots but they dont hurt they are just on my penis, they look like tiny bumps too. so i dont know what this, if it it bad if its an std or something else, also a symptom i have is that my bones cracl a lot like if i just move my arm iit cracks.also my feet are very red and my hands but it might be cause of my arthritis because my fingers turn red and swell up when it is very cold. Thank you

  35. QUESTION:
    What are your thoughts on my writing? Please read?
    I really appreciate any opinions and/or constructive criticism :)

    The heat was unbearable as always. The sun was high in the sky, causing everything to look far too bright. The air was thick with dust and the streets were deserted. It wasn't a sweaty kind of warmth, it wasn't like being on holiday. It was dry, the earth was cracked and flaky. The Sergeant at base had said it was to reach 45 degrees today and in the midday sun, every move was an effort. It didn't help that in total the weight I was carrying only weighed around 7kgs less than me. My rifle was hot in my hands from the midday sun and as I looked around to my best mate Dan, that was when I saw it. It whistled through the air and exploded with a deafening thud, throwing me to the ground. The next thing I was aware of were the screams. Someone, somewhere was roaring in agony, they needed my help. Panic made my throat constrict, fighting for breath I struggled to my feet, hearing that all too familiar crack and thump of gunfire.

    I staggered through the lingering smoke towards the casualty as I heard "man down" over the radio. I ran closer to him, feeling like something out of a horror film. Where his left leg should have been, there was a bloody mass with part of the thigh bone sticking out, the rest was gone. He was howling in agony, his face was badly burnt and his chest was heaving as he struggled for breath. "Mate, your alright. Shhhhh, there there." My voice sounded distant, foreign even to myself.  I applied a tourniquet to his damaged leg with shaking fingers and administered morphine in hope of easing his pain. I removed his helmet to reveal his strawberry blond hair, instantly I knew who he was. Andy Campbell was the joker of the group, the thief, the troublemaker and everybody's best friend. His girlfriend was expecting a baby and at 23 he was desparate to become a dad. His face was pale and he was whimpering, his fingers trembling "My eyes, they're on fire, aaaaaargh they're burning, help me, please please make it stop" he begged. "Shhhhh you're ok, Dan and Chris'll be here soon with a stretcher, shhh" I held his hand, powerless until further help arrived. Within half an hour he was being loaded onto a helicopter to take him to hospital, the morphine had done it's job and he was quieter now, whimpering occaisionally, but much calmer. I stepped back feeling drained, my knees were weak and the past half hour had been a surreal blur. People were patting me on the back, saying good job, pulling me into hugs. But I was struggling to balance, I staggered from side to side as the world began spinning at a sickening pace. My vision started to cloud over and my dry tongue stuck in my throat. "Samuels! How much have you had to drink today?" the sergeant's voice was sharp, alert. "SAMUELS! are you listening? Get that water down your neck NOW!" the bellowing sergeant shoved the water bottle into my shaking hand. As I gulped the warm water down, grains of sand washed against my teeth and down my raw throat. In the heat of a contact it was easy to forget to drink.

    When we arrived back at the relative safety of the patrol base, people were already sorting through Andy's stuff and folding away his cot. I stepped into the makeshift shower fully clothed and sweating. The cool water trickling down my neck, soaking my clothes and body was strangely soothing. I tilted my head back, letting the water run down my face, washing away the sand that had gathered around my nose and mouth. For the first time in days I felt calm. I let my head fall forward and the water drip off of my face, that was when I saw it. I wanted to scream. The once pleasant cold water became piercing, I was shivering and I felt sick. Andy's blood had turned the water red as it drained away, my combats were saturated with it. The smell filled my nostrils and the images of the day filled my mind like a broken DVD, forever on repeat..              

    Six months later

    As I walked down the street with a million thoughts running through my head, it occurred to me, he might not even live here anymore. If he did, he'd probably have moved on with his life, have a decent job and a decent girlfriend, he might not even want to know me. "But that's ok, I'll still love him" I told myself. I had to see him, I needed more than the memories that faded like smoke in the wind, because without them, I had nothing.

    I rounded the corner and the back of his house came into view, one side of the tree-house had collapsed, the wood splintered and the paintwork faded and cracked. The hedge was overgrown and untidy and the grass needed cut. The muddy football boots and trainers were missing from the back door, the place looked sad and neglected. I clung on to the picture of him in my head, his dark blue eyes, defined cheekbones and his messy brown hair.

    Thanks! Please t
    I'll add more if you'd like, I've just realised the second part stops in a really stupid place because of the character limit thingy. In case you're wondering it's about a girl soldier who, on completing her tour of Afghanistan, goes in search of all the people who loved her, including her ex boyfriend from when she was at school. It's sort of a love story, but more about people growing apart and how we seem to hurt the people we love most, would you read it?

    • ANSWER:
      Well as a rule of thumb, any mention of weather in the first paragraph is cliche. Plus, did you mean 45 degrees celsius? Because farenheit is kind of cold - and in a quick google search, in celsius it would be 113 degrees farenheit. Yikes. Finding and helping the injured man would be a better hook.

      Not a bad start though, keep it up and good luck!

    Prologue 

    The heat was unbearable as always. The sun was high in the sky, causing everything to look far too bright. The air was thick with dust and the streets were deserted.

I tilted my head back, letting the water run down my face, washing away the sand that had gathered around my nose and mouth. For the first time in days I felt calm. I let my head fall forward and the water drip off of my face, that was when I saw it. I wanted to scream. The once pleasant cold water became piercing, I was shivering and I felt sick. Andy's blood had turned the water red as it drained away, my combats were saturated with it. The smell filled my nostrils and the images of the day filled my mind like a jammed DVD.

    What do you think about my writing?
    My story is of a young girl who left home to join the army. After a tough 6 months she return to her hometown hoping to see her old boyfriend, only to discover that she isn't the only one who has struggled the past two years. Here goes:

    Prologue 

    The heat was unbearable as always. The sun was high in the sky, causing everything to look far too bright. The air was thick with dust and the streets were deserted. It wasn't a sweaty kind of warmth, it wasn't like being on holiday. It was dry, the earth was cracked and flaky. The Sergeant at base had said it was to reach 45 degrees today and in the midday sun, every move was an effort. It didn't help that in total the weight I was carrying only weighed around 7kgs less than me. My rifle was hot in my hands from the midday sun and as I looked around to my best mate Dan, that was when I saw it. It whistled through the air and exploded with a deafening thud, throwing me to the ground. The next thing I was aware of were the screams. Someone, somewhere was roaring in agony, they needed my help. Panic made my throat constrict, fighting for breath I struggled to my feet, hearing that all too familiar crack and thump of gunfire.

    I staggered through the lingering smoke towards the casualty as I heard "man down" over the radio. I ran closer to him, feeling like something out of a horror film. Where his left leg should have been, there was a bloody mass with part of the thigh bone sticking out, the rest was gone. He was howling in agony, his face was badly burnt and his chest was heaving as he struggled for breath. "Mate, your alright. Shhhhh, there there." My voice sounded distant, foreign even to myself.  I applied a tourniquet to his damaged leg with shaking fingers and administered morphine in hope of easing his pain. I removed his helmet to reveal his strawberry blond hair, instantly I knew who he was. Andy Campbell was the joker of the group, the thief, the troublemaker and everybody's best friend. His girlfriend was expecting a baby and at 23 he was desparate to become a dad. His face was pale and he was whimpering, his fingers trembling "My eyes, they're on fire, aaaaaargh they're burning, help me, please please make it stop" he begged. "Shhhhh you're ok, Dan and Chris'll be here soon with a stretcher, shhh" I held his hand, powerless until further help arrived. Within half an hour he was being loaded onto a helicopter to take him to hospital, the morphine had done it's job and he was quieter now, whimpering occaisionally, but much calmer. I stepped back feeling drained, my knees were weak and the past half hour had been a surreal blur. People were patting me on the back, saying good job, pulling me into hugs. But I was struggling to balance, I staggered from side to side as the world began spinning at a sickening pace. My vision started to cloud over and my dry tongue stuck in my throat. "Samuels! How much have you had to drink today?" the sergeant's voice was sharp, alert. "SAMUELS! are you listening? Get that water down your neck NOW!" the bellowing sergeant shoved the water bottle into my shaking hand. As I gulped the warm water down, grains of sand washed against my teeth and down my raw throat. In the heat of a contact it was easy to forget to drink.

    When we arrived back at the relative safety of the patrol base, people were already sorting through Andy's stuff and folding away his cot. I stepped into the makeshift shower fully clothed and sweating. The cool water trickling down my neck, soaking my clothes and body was strangely soothing.

    Six months later

    As I walked down the street with a million thoughts running through my head, it occurred to me, he might not even live here anymore. If he did, he'd probably have moved on with his life, have a decent job and a decent girlfriend, he might not even want to know me. "But that's ok, I'll still love him" I told myself. I had to see him, I needed more than the memories that faded like smoke in the wind, because without them, I had nothing.

    I rounded the corner and the back of his house came into view, one side of the tree-house had collapsed, the wood splintered and the paintwork faded and cracked. The hedge was overgrown and untidy and the grass needed cut. The muddy football boots and trainers were missing from the back door, the place looked sad and neglected. I clung on to the picture of him in my head, his dark blue eyes, defined cheekbones and his messy brown hair. Some of the details became slightly blurred over time, like his scent, his smile, t

    • ANSWER:
      It's good, the sense of struggle and danger you put in the beginning always attracts readers. You keep having allusions which is good so that readers have a sense of what your character is going through even if they've never been on a battlefield or accident. I find you take your time with the details and stretch out dramatic scenes, this is not a bad thing just your writing style.

  39. QUESTION:
    How does this story sound so far?
    The last thing I wanted to deal with today was to come home to find my little sister shouting at the wall.
    Her little hands were in fists, and her strawberry blonde hair shielded her face looking like a crazy woman. She sat with her legs crossed, huddled in the corner of the dining room.
    “Go away you!” She growled with her tiny voice. “I told you, I don’t like you anymore!”
    I stared at her in shock. Slowly, I crossed the dining room and dropped my jacket and backpack on the table.
    “Willow,” I gulped. “What are you doing?”
    She turned around and scowled. “Lily, the boy won’t leave me alone and I don’t like him!” She stood up, and dusted off her white sun dress. “He’s a meany.”
    My eyes trailed from my sister over to the wall. There was nothing but the familiar red wallpaper.
    “There’s nothing there, Willow.” I said flatly.
    “Well, he’s gone now. But he was here before- I saw him.” She insisted.
    A lump began to grow in my throat and my palms grew sweaty.
    “Willow,” I began. “Why don’t you go into the kitchen and I’ll make you a snack in a few minutes. You can have Oreos.”
    Willow’s frown instantly changed into a wide smile. “Can I have double stuffed Oreos?” She squeaked.
    I nodded.
    Willow waltzed out of the room and skipped towards the kitchen, humming all the way there.
    Slowly, I turned around to face the red wallpaper where my sister was just standing. I traced my fingers across it, and closed my eyes. Suddenly, fear rippled through my veins. I felt cold air rush through me, causing the hairs on the back of my neck to stand up. I opened my eyes and gasped. This was not good. Not good at all.
    I needed my older sister.
    I raced out of the room and crossed the living room. I sped up the stairs, nearly tripping over my own feet. I heard music coming from down the hall in the sister’s room. I trampled down the hall, pushed open the door, and collapsed onto the hardwood floor.
    “LILY! OH MY GOD, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” My sister was sprawled out on her giant purple queen bed, listening to music and doing her homework. She switched off her stereo.
    “It’s, it’s”- I stuttered. I huffed, and took a deep breath. “Willow.”
    Arabella stood up, alarmed. “What happened? Is she okay?”
    I nodded, reassuringly. After a minute, I calmed down and stood up. I faced her and sighed. Deep down, I knew this was going to happen eventually. But I couldn’t grasp the fact that the nightmare had begun.
    “Willow was talking to the wall. She was shouting at it.” I whispered.
    Arabella’s face was twisted with confusion and disbelief. “Wait-what?” She gasped. “But, it, it couldn’t be.”
    I grabbed her shoulders and stared into her green eyes. “Arabella,” I asserted. “It happened to us, and now it’s happening to her.
    “She’s 4 years old for god sake’s Lily!” She snapped. “Little kids have imaginary friends.”
    I shook my head. “Whatever she was talking to was no imaginary friend.”
    Tears began to spring in my sister’s eyes. I looked away, as my emotions got the best of me too. I hated to see my sister cry. She was so strong, and she tried her hardest in everything she did. After all we went through, after the battles we fought together as a team, the horror was starting all over again.
    “This can’t be happening.” She whispered so quietly, I almost couldn’t hear her.

    • ANSWER:
      This really caught my attention, and I want to know what happens next and I also want to know why Lily and Arabella were freaking out about Willow shouting at the "imaginary friend". Keep going!

  40. QUESTION:
    Excessive sweating in winter/summer caused by the slightest physical movement?
    Hello, I am a male 18 years of age. I do not recall having any problems related to the following before the age of 12-13-14. I have sweating from armpits, sometimes back, feet and palms. Does not matter what time of year, I tried walking to school in a t-shirt (10 minute casual relaxed walk) when it was 10 degrees celcius outside, and by the time I got to school every part of my body not covered by clothing was frozen but my armpits were starting to sweat anyway. I can be totally relaxed while siting, although as soon as I start writing with one hand, that particular hand's arm pit becomes sweaty. Once I start sweating a little bit it takes at least 40 minutes for drops of sweat to stop coming out through the pores completely. During summer I wear sandals and shorts, a constant wind either dries off the sweat right away leaving no wetness or odor or keeps me cool enough not to sweat much. I drink at least 5 small waterbottles per day and take drinks of water when ever I can. I have vigorous physical activity (work out, running for 3-4 hours, judo, skiing) at least 4 times a week. During those times I sweat non stop, and I drink a lot of water before excersize. I never eat junk food because it drains my energy and thinks like a pack of chips results in some ache. When my back sweats and I am wearing a backpack or am sitting in class leaning on a chair I get some ache on my back too, in the areas where anything that touches my clothes. I am guessing in those areas my pores get blocked by what ever substances there are (Even though I take a warm/cold shower every morning). I wear clean clothes every single time, mostly because after a day my t-shirt and anything over it is 30% drenched in sweat. I do not mind sweating and I love sweating during physical exersize, but on times when I need to be in class, in a restaurant, on a date, a walk in the park, I am tired of having big wet stains in my arm pits. When I exersize often the smell dissapears but the wet stains are still there. I used to think this is some sort of nervous system malfunction more than anything else - until i did many experiments and saw that in a very relaxed state I can start swearing as long as I make my muscles work. Just sitting in a chair and leaning my head on my arm may trigger arm pit sweating. I can feel drops of sweat drip down the side of my body a few minutes into gently leaning on my arm (which is placed on a table). After a shower in the morning, I can go to a certain point in the day just fine. At that point (can be at any time of the day) if i start sweating a few drops, even if it stops, the chance of sweating exessivly again for any slightest movement such as walking greatly increases. Please doctor, instead of telling me about prescriptions, anti antiperspirants and surgery, can you recommend some ways I can: make sure that my thyroid gland is not malfunctioning, how to improve my nervous system, what supplements (such as zink and vitamin C) should intake to prevent triggering sweating easily, and in what quantities? PS: I came out of the shower before I started writing this message; my arms are resting on my table only my fingers are moving to type, I seem as calm and as relaxed/care free as I ever was, yet in these 5 minutes my armpits are already wet; no drops of sweat are dripping but the whole armpit area is wet enough to leave a clear stain on a paper towel. Thank you!

    My Darling Angel

    Life is like a beach
    It gets hot it gets cold summer heat winter snow
    You find gold you might not find what you searching for
    You never know I never seen love it’s like a ghost,
    The sun bows at her feet she’s not alone
    The moon reflects the gloss of her skin glow
    Brown caramel flesh tone
    She enjoys looking in the mirror in search of her own soul
    Sweet and precious
    Any where in the hood she is respected
    She Cycled through rough years and still held a strong spirit concealed
    And I could write plenty verses based on superstitious feelings
    Run across the whole entire planets for her is my mission
    Perhaps further beyond non existent, beautiful Latin sensation
    A lot of foes want to dip inside her midsection
    She dedicative and persuasive and wont let anybody take it from her
    She don’t think all men are the same
    Because we all go wrong so I pray
    Maybe someday we could both exchange emotions
    Like the blue sea switches motion
    Drain this pain together seek for the solution
    And hope for something better
    Baby here’s my love letter
    Behind the make up and the Marlyn Monroe duplication
    Behind the cover girl eye liner shaded vision
    Deep beneath your chest a heart bright as a lighter awaits
    To be blessed
    If you ever run out of fluid
    I’ll be here to refill it, its best I let you know now you’re the happiness I been pursuing

    You and I are those stars forming alignment
    We bond perfect together like bonnie and Clyde did
    We have this habit of
    Holding each others hand when either one of us is driving
    I’m sure you understand
    Because after we finish fighting we make sweaty love until the morning,
    This feeling is something impairing
    Within every beat you make my heart sing and it’s kind of scary
    Since I’m thinking you will leave me by my self
    Starring at the ceiling, trapped inside a cell
    My angle, thank you for leading me out of hell
    You’re the main reason my wings grew
    Sweetie can’t you tell, I thought you knew
    I recognize this tactile well
    I’m surprised how you fell from the heavens
    Storming in my life asking where the door is
    All these butterflies in my system left my stomach swollen
    Her sweet Kisses could revive a dead person
    And her presence brings joy to all the sadness
    I can’t concentrate during my classes
    Thinking about you became a drug lately and I’m addicted to it
    I won’t deny it, like Kobe Bryan enjoys winning all the time
    I want to win your heart and permanently make it mine
    Why follow signs that don’t explain what lies on the other side
    It could possibly be a trap set by destiny
    It’s a fact if god took part of me you may keep the heart of me
    Why does the cage bird sing? Maybe cause it was lonely
    I don’t know I got many unanswered questions bugging
    Like trains passing while I sleep deep dream you and me
    Lost in your eyes gleam blood flowing quick like a stream
    Girl its how you got me when you arrive at the scene

    Searching all over the city
    Determined to withstand anything that approaches me slightly

  42. QUESTION:
    Please, What Is This That Is In My Room? I Need Help Quick!!!!!! This Is Urgent!?
    No one believes me(neither my parents nor my older brother)but for awhile(like two years or more)I have known that there is something in my room. At first I thought it was a ghost because it seemed harmless but, after tonight, I have started thinking it is a poltergeist.
    For the past few weeks I was setting up a recorder in my room. I would hear many different things when I'd play the tape back. Everything from whispers to someone going, 'pssst', and it really got to me. But what really SCARED the LIVING HELL out of me was when I was trying to fall asleep and heard this laugh(it was like a girl my age, I was thirteen at the time and now I'm fourteen cause a week ago I just had my birthday, going tee-hee). Well, luckily I had the recorder going that night and when I played it back I could not believe it:the laugh was on there. AND the freaky part was my neighbor James had described hearing this laugh as he walked past my dad's shed AND I'd heard this laugh myself before when I was at my friend's house in her bedroom alone while he was down the hall taking a shower.
    I'm including as much detail as possible so this could get a little long.
    I have also been touched by this thing, whatever it is. I have had it slip it's...hand....across my ankle once. It has moved my hair and messed with my pillow while I had my head laid on it. It actually moved it's....fingers....up and down my ankle just a few days ago. It felt all soft and tingly. It happened once and stopped. Then happened again so I put my foot against my ankle so that I wouldn't feel it. And that worked but in the end I was so creeped I just went ahead and got out of bed.
    In-fact, my first experience with this thing was around two years ago I think. I had sat up in bed and I was listening to my music when I felt something get on the bed. I looked but didn't see anything so I turned back around and continued listening to my music. It was really freaky but after a few minutes I got shoved me from behind and I just sat there, shocked, because nothing had ever happened like this before. But then, after awhile, it happened again, more forceful, and I nearly got shoved out of bed. I left the room and was so scared I had to sleep on the couch the rest of the night. I can even remember that it was a Saturday.
    For the past few days I have been wearing a cross around my neck cause my friend and I were joking about demons. This isn't really paranormal but I wanted to let you all know everything so anyways tonight I was taking my headphones out of my ears and, like usual, an earbud had got tangled in the chain. When I was trying to get it out the chain unlatched(most likely pulling on the earbud did it though I'm not sure). Anyways after that I KNEW something bad was going to happen tonight, that I was going to experience something again, and sure enough it did. This is the reason I am up right now at three in the morning scared $hit-less:
    I was facing the wall, lying in bed. I had woken up feeling sweaty and hot from lying under so many blankets(it's really cold in my room). Whatever. None-the-less, I had this feeling that I shouldn't turn to the other side of my bed. I sensed I shouldn't but of course I did turn to the other side anyways. The first few seconds went by and I was fine but suddenly I saw this white in my vision(I had my eyes closed) and I found I was being pulled back to the other side of my bed. I couldn't move, couldn't speak or anything. I was so scared and I couldn't get any words out of my mouth no matter how hard I tried. Finally I gave up trying to move or speak and just let it pull me. After a few seconds it stopped and I could move again and talk. I turned back around to the side of the bed I was originally facing but I was so creeped I went ahead and got out of the bed and left the room and got on the computer to put this question up.
    Please, what is this thing? Is it a ghost, poltergeist, something else??? It's scaring me because lately it's been getting physical. Seriously, what the hell is this thing and how can I get rid of it if it's harmful? What can I do to get it to stop touching me?
    One more quick thing:it also felt like earlier in the night, way before this happened, that someone was breathing cold breath on my cheeks. I had just taken a bath and my skin was really hot because of that so maybe it was my OWN breath but I'm not positive because it didn't feel like my breath. I'd stop breathing and it wouldn't happen and so I'd start breathing again and after I'd breath out I'd feel it breathing on my cheeks while I was breathing in.
    Really what is this thing??
    If it helps, the other night I saw this clearish shape moving through the yard while I was outside swinging. And I have seen some black shapes move quickly out the corner of my eye and every once in awhile I'd see a tiny red light like that of a pocket laser.
    Someone, anyone, please tell me what this thing is and what I need to know about it.
    Thanks in advan

Cold Hands Sweaty Feet

This is not to say searching for a way to cure sweaty hands is not necessary, it absolutely is, but can be time consuming as you try to decide if it is due to a medical condition or mainly anxiety and nerves, and then deciding on whether to try relief methods only or look into a more permanent medical cure. Either way, while you are doing all this research, there are some things that can be done, to help relieve but not cure sweaty hands.

Depending on your career, a good solid handshake can make the difference. How many times has the advice been given, "Look them straight in the eye and firmly grasp the hand for a solid handshake." You may not always notice when you get a good handshake, but you certainly notice when it is a wimpy, pathetic attempt, or when they will not look you in the eye. Unfortunately you also take note when it clammy handshake. A potential client, or employer, will have a n immediate negative reaction, simply based on the handshake.

    • ANSWER:
      You have exactly the same symptoms I did, it is basically called Hyperhidrosis or more simply excessive sweating.

      Just remembering what is was like sweating all the time give the the shivers, it was such an annoying health problem and I honestly though I was going to have to live like that forever.

      I have to admit, I wasted my time and money on useless products that promised to control sweating and body odor but none of them worked. I joined an online hyperhidrosis community where people shared their experiences with treating sweating problems and they got to talking about Natural Treatments.

      That was the solution all along! It really is easy to use natural remedies and it is a lot cheaper then those other products that do nothing. I really suggest you take a look at the natural remedies and the guide to curing hyperhidrosis naturally, I've included the source below.

      I hope this information helps :) And let me know if you need any help!

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have hands and feet are freezing cold, but sweaty?
    I sometimes get sweaty but my hands and feet (and even the tip of my nose) are freezing cold. All of the sudden I will start getting chills and sweating at the same time even though I am not in a cold environment. I actually shiver and sweat at the same time. I'm not menopausal (I'm 32), and I am fit. This is something chronic, not a cold or fever. Every day or two this happens to me and I don't know why. I know I should see a doctor, but I just want to know if anyone else has this problem and if they know what it is.

    • ANSWER:
      I get this but I also have rheumatoid arthritis.

      Inside your body is cold, in the bones. I would go get checked out if I were you just to make sure everything is OK.
      Our hands and feet and even your nose your body is going to protect all your vital organs with what heat it has first, then it will go to those parts of the body to heat them. This is why people who get frost bite loose there toes and fingers first.

      Women get this more then men to as well. Also if you are not a big women (fat) you will get this more. It probably is nothing but go get checked out anyways. Best safe then sorry.

  8. QUESTION:
    what can help cold+sweaty hands and feet?

    • ANSWER:
      You suffer from hyperhidrosis.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperhidrosis

      First try antiperspirant like Drysol, Maxim, or Megadry.

      If those do not help and are too costly (they only work temporarily) you should research more on iontophoresis machines.
      These machines can help victims hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis machines are costly though.

      Here's a link to more treatments info:
      http://www.esfbchannel.com/treatments/sweating.php
      And
      http://www.socialphobiaworld.com/postt6814.htm

      I would not recommend surgery (ETS) unless you have tried every treatment possible and that includes just living with hyperhidrosis. There are many risks involved in ETS, contrary to what ETS surgeons say. If you ever want to go through with surgery I will recommend you research as much as possible on ETS online and get opinions on it from different MDs medical doctors that are not ETS surgeons such as dermatologists. ETS surgeons might hide information from you to rake in the $$$. This has been done before.

      Hope this helps!
      Good luck with your hyperhidrosis treatments.

  9. QUESTION:
    My hands and feet are always cold and sweaty?
    My hands and feet are always very very very cold, and people often complain but they're always clammy and sweaty. They hurt all the time and socks and gloves don't usually help, I usually have to soak them in warm water for half an hour.

    • ANSWER:
      I was wondering the same thing. That always happens to me! But idk wat 2 do :P

  10. QUESTION:
    Why are my feet and hands always icy cold and sweaty?
    my hands are always cold! No matter the weather. And my feet are always red and get sweaty easily! i have bad circulation obviously. What can i do? What does it mean?

    • ANSWER:
      i have the exact same problem. try elevating your feet when you're sitting down and becoming more active. when you move, it allows your muscles to work, when that happens, more blood starts flow so your hands and feet will warm up. when you're sitting down try not to cross your legs for more than 20 minutes as it can block the blood flow and also cause spider veins (you don't want that!)
      try staying in areas which have a neutral temperature (not cold, not hot) as for the redness in your feet, if its on the soles then it could mean that you have flat feet, so check that out..
      i hope that helps :)

  14. QUESTION:
    What can I do about my extremely cold and sweaty hands and feet?
    I am a female (teen), with low iron. I am not sure if it is a severe or weak form of anemia; all I know, is that I have low iron and the only meats I can eat are:

    1.Chicken
    2.Fish (seafood)
    -all red meats are out of the question, because of religious beliefs-sorry everyone.

    I notice that my hands and feet are either:
    1.simply freezing
    2. freezing AND sweaty
    3. the palms of my hands and soles of my feet are discolored sometimes (blue or really red)
    4. After sitting at the movies (and crossing my legs), I experience poor balance when I stand (but this might be something that applies to everyone..)

    In addition to this, I also have "permanent" dark circles under my eyes, which leads me to believe I just have an iron problem (or, demented blood vessels..ha).

    Any help/ POSSIBLE diagnosis would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      The cold extremities, the colour changes and poor balance indicates that you are having a circulation problem. Sweat is usually the bodies way of regulating its temperature.
      The circle around your eyes could also be an indication of iron deficiency, lack of sleep, dehydration, thinning of the skin, or kidney yang deficiency.
      You might be right when you say you're having an anemia (iron deficiency) or you might be having Raynauld’s Disease.

      You should include in your diet lots of raw foods. For your iron source, your diet should include eggs, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, including almonds, avocados, beets, blackstrap molasses, dulse, kelp, kidney and lima beans, lentils, millet, peaches, pears, pumpkins, watercress, broccoli, parsley and celery.

      Other foods that you should include in your diet (for kidney balance) are lobster, sardines, shrimp, walnut raspberry, pistachio, fennel, dill seed and clove.

      To ensure that you are getting enough B vitamins you should also include asparagus, milk, yogurt, spinach, Brussels sprouts,potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, cheese, banana, walnuts, cantaloupe and plantains.

      You may continue to eat your chicken a seafood (inclusive of fish)

      It would also be good if you speak with your physician about your symptoms since there could be many other conditions that display the same set of symptoms.

      (Please accept my humblest apology for foods that I might mention that are against your religious belief.)

    My feet and hands are always painfully freezing cold?
    My feet are worse than my hands usually. My feet get so cold that they hurt and eventually go numb. I've tried to wear socks and slippers but all that does is make my feet sweaty while cold. I can be sitting in a comfortable room with the rest of my body being a completely perfect temperature and my feet are freezing. I can even be hot and my feet are still ridiculously cold. My feet are like this continuously almost all of the time. My toes are the worst, they are so uncomfortable. Any suggestions?

      Cayenne pepper can help to increase the circulation in your extremities(hands and feet), the easiest way(if you are like most people and don't like swallowing a teaspoon of cayenne in water) is to take a product like Solaray's Cool Cayenne that is in capsules so you can swallow them without burning at the mouth. If you do find you enjoy cayenne as a seasoning to food then go for it!

      It seems like you have a fever or you are not eating a balanced diet on a regular basis. I don't really know whats going on. If you do have a fever, take an advil or Tylenol. Better yet, go see a Doctor who can diagnose your condition properly and give you the proper cure.

  28. QUESTION:
    I get really sweaty hands and feet even when it's cold what should i do?
    will putting deoderant on them help?

    • ANSWER:
      It's actually called hyperhidrosis, I have the same thing.

      You can do a number of things on your own to reduce sweating and body odor. The following suggestions may help:

      Bathe daily. Regular bathing helps keep the number of bacteria on your skin in check.
      Try relaxation techniques. Consider relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation or biofeedback. These can help you learn to control the stress that triggers perspiration.
      Change your diet. If foods or beverages cause you to sweat more than usual or your perspiration to smell, consider eliminating caffeinated drinks from your diet as well as foods with strong odors, such as garlic and onions.
      Choose natural-fiber clothing. Wear natural fabrics, such as cotton, wool and silk, which allow your skin to breathe. When you exercise, you might prefer high-tech fabrics that keeps moisture away from your skin.
      Apply antiperspirants nightly. At bedtime, apply antiperspirants to sweaty palms or soles of the feet. Try perfume-free antiperspirants.
      Dry your feet thoroughly after you bathe. Microorganisms thrive in the damp spaces between your toes. Use OTC foot powders to help absorb sweat.
      Choose shoes and socks made of natural materials. Shoes made of natural materials, such as leather, can help prevent sweaty feet by allowing your feet to breathe.
      Rotate your shoes. Shoes won't completely dry overnight, so try not to wear the same pair two days in a row if you have trouble with sweaty feet.
      Wear the right socks. Cotton and wool socks help keep your feet dry because they absorb moisture. When you're active, moisture-wicking athletic socks are a good choice.
      Change your socks often. Change socks or hose once or twice a day, drying your feet thoroughly each time. Women may try pantyhose with cotton soles.
      Air your feet. Go barefoot when you can, or at least slip out of your shoes now and then.

    Chinese Medicine: Face, hands, and feet warming up due to Yang Kidney/Jing building?
    I have always had sweaty and cold hands and feet and that is important in Chinese Medicine. Now that I take their Herbal Products that are meant for Kidney Yang and Yang Jing, sometimes for a moment my hands, feet, and/or face warm up. Is that due to the Herbs and the Yang building? Why is it only for a moment and only slightly? Does that mean it is building?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it could mean that the yang in your body is building. Maybe keep it up and start to notice other changes like emotionally. It might take a while to notice those effects but definitely pay attention.

  35. QUESTION:
    Cold hands and feet what could be wrong?
    I always have cold hands and feet that are often an annoyance. I wash them with warm water but after around 5 minutes or so they get cold again. My hands are normal color(reddish even)however my hands are often cold. However when my hands get sweaty and warm during exercise and after eating. Also I am underweight so could that be causing it? btw I am 13. Also, i often walk barefoot on the cold hard wood floors. my hands have never been able to keep warm for long, and after warming up within the hour my hands become cold again (usually quite cold) much to the chagrin of anyone i come in contact with (besides the summertime when my extremities are often quite warm, and i know it is summertime but here it is quite cold, i live on the mountainside where it drops to about 4 degrees overnight in the middle of the summer) i also notice that my feet are even colder, washing them with warm water is the only solution but they get cold again after a while. also, could this possibly be affecting my weight (perhaps i don't absorb enough nutrients because all the calories go to my hands? i don't know?) Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
    btw i do not have a slow metabolism, i eat often eat much more than my parents and yet i do not gain a pound, when my friend is gaining about 30 pounds/year even though hes already overweight

    • ANSWER:
      This could be multiple things. The most common are, anxiety (which causes the blood to flow to the organs and away from your extremities), and problems with circulation. You don't need a high level of anxiety to alter blood flow (signs would be feeling like you don't want to sit still or restlessness). Both of these can be helped. If you want better circulation you could start running/exercising which would improve this a lot. You could also take a natural vasodilator (something that would make the blood vessels relax, like Arginine). Once your circulation gets better it will help the problem. To get rid of anxiety you can go two routes, natural or use prescription medication. Personally I recommend natural remedies. A natural way that is proven would be kavalactones (they potentiate gamma-aminobutyric acid which is a neurotransmitter that will reduce anxiety). Kavalactones have been shown to be as effective as benzodiazapines. As a side note I have used them before these before with remarkable success.

  37. QUESTION:
    Why are My Hands and Feet Constantly Sweaty?
    Even when I'm relaxed at room temperature my hands and feet are always really sweaty. Then, when it's really cold, they get paper dry and the skin between my fingers gets sort of flakey.
    The only time they're normal is right after they get wet from water and I dry them off, or when the air is between cool and room temperature.
    I don't really drink more than the average person, and I'm not morbidly obese or anything.
    Is it genetic? My cousin had the same thing, but she got the surgery to only sweat on some parts of her back.

  38. QUESTION:
    Cold/clammy hands (and feet)?
    More abnormalities in my bodily functions... I'm 16 (I don't know if that has anything to do with this) and I have this problem with my hands (and feet) where they are almost always cold and sweaty. It makes me very self-consious, and I do whatever I can to avoid high-fives and handshakes. The only time my hands are not cold and sweaty is when it's VERY warm around me. Besides times like those my hands are about 99% of the time cold and clammy. It's extremely uncomfortable, and when the room I'm in is cold or the weather is cold outside, my hands move very slowly and the skin on my hands (or feet) are afflicted with pain. I'm not sure what to do about this and I really want to fix the problem...

    • ANSWER:
      Usually very cold hands and feet are due to circulation issues. You should make a dr. appt and see if this is the case. But at 16, you seem young for circulatory problems...but hey, you never know.

  39. QUESTION:
    My hands use to be cold now they're always sweaty?
    My hands and feet use to be so cold especially in the winter time to the point where they would become numb. Now, my hands are constantly sweaty and I don't know why. Its not just my hands but my entire body's always sweaty. Its embarrassing to shake hands with someone and your hands are dripping with sweat. Is there any reason why I'm always like this and is there anything i cant do. I know maybe people say you get sweaty because your nervous but that's not the case. My hands are sweaty all the time....

    • ANSWER:
      There is a product on the market called Hypercare. It is a prescription which can be written by a doctor, and completely prevents sweating. You have to be cautious in the heat, because sweating is our body's way of cooling off, and preventing that entirely can be dangerous- especially in the summer.
      If Hypercare doesn't work, my doctor told me that Botox was prescribed for excessive sweating. But eww! I totally wouldn't do that!
      Hypercare works really well for me, and I think it should work for you as well. Just find a doctor who is sensitive to your needs. Good luck.

I have tried wearing socks but when I take my socks off my feet are still cold so it doesnt really make a difference? What is this and what can I do to warm my hands/feet up?
    I'm never cold anywhere else, just my hands and feet, lol :)

    • ANSWER:
      You may be anemic. Schedule an appointment with your doctor and they'll take blood from your arm and they'll test it to see if you're iron level is where it should be. I had the same problem, I was always unusually cold when everyone else said they were fine. Went to the doctor, got the test done, and they contacted me saying I was anemic with an iron level of 6 when it should have been at atleast 12!

      They give you iron pills to help you and they help A TON.

    My hands and feet are always cold...help?
    My hands and feet are always cold. My hands can get sweaty, but they are still cold. Everyone says I have bad circulation, but what do I do. I am in pretty damn good shape, and I work out a few times a week. I'm 20 too, and I don't drink or smoke, I'm very healthy, so what can I do to fix my bad circulation.

  43. QUESTION:
    ok why are my hands and feet so sweaty all the time even when I'm cold?

    • ANSWER:
      you may have palmar hyperhidrosis.
      The most likely cause of sweaty palms, as well as other types of hyperhidrosis, is an overactive sympathetic nervous system
      Conservative Management of Palmar HyperhidrosisConservative management should be coupled with prescribed treatment by a medical practitioner to reduce the symptoms.

      •Counseling may be effective in managing primary palmar hyperhidrosis in cases of mental-emotional etiology.
      •Trigger foods and aggravating factors should be noted if possible and relevant dietary changes should be implemented.
      •Effective prevention of secondary palmar hyperhidrosis is difficult with conservative management and drug therapy or surgery may be required.
      •Excessive physical activity and extremes of heat may be two trigger factors that should be avoided as far as possible.
      •In cases of diabetes, a glucose controlled diet with low glycemic index may improve glucose tolerance which could assist with palmar hyperhidrosis.
      •Abstinence from alcohol and narcotics is advisable if it is the causative factor for sweaty palms.
      •Stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine may aggravate palmar hypehidrosis and should relevant dietary and lifestyle changes should be implemented.
      •Anti-perspirant compounds like aluminum chloride can be applied on the palms to reduce moisture or palmar surfaces. Recent research on an aluminum sesquichlorohydrate foam has shown that it is effective in reducing sweat in palmar hyperhidrosis (2).
      Treatment of Palmar HyperhidrosisStandard therapeutic protocol may differ among cases of palmar hyperhidrosis depending on medical history and underlying pathology.

      1.Anticholinergic drugs have a direct effect on the sympathetic nervous system although there are numerous side effects.
      2.Treatment should be directed at contributing factors.
      3.Ionophoresis involves the use of electrotherapeutic measures to reduce the activity of sweat glands.
      4.Botulinum injections at the affected area may be useful for its anticholinergic effects.
      5.Surgery should be considered if drug therapy proves ineffective. Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy involves resection of the sympathetic nerve supply to the affected area. This prevents nerve stimulation of the sweat gland of the palms. However surgery has a host of complications including exacerbating the problem or increasing generalized hyperhidrosis (3).
      Possible Approach to Primary Palmar HyperhidrosisIt has been reported many times that excessive sweating in focal hyperhidrosis (including palmar hyperhidrosis) was triggered by “emotional stimuli” (3,5).

      It seems like persons with primary hyperhidrosis have their sympathetic nervous system in a constant “on” position (8). Considering that no neural disorder on a biochemical, histopathological or any other physical level, except sympathetic overactivity itself was found, it seems reasonable to surmise that this high sympathetic tone is being constantly influenced by impulses from cerebral cortex, specifically from the frontal lobe. The frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex is responsible for thought processes, meaning from the affected person’s own will. Connections among lymbic system (responsible for emotions), hypothalamus and sweat glands are also known.

      It seems reasonable that a particular thinking pattern causes constantly increased sympathetic tone in a person with hyperhidrosis. It is therefore possible to expect that changing this thinking pattern can help to lower sympathetic activity below the point where everyday stress would not trigger sweating.

      Changing attitudes to life experiences, improving coping skills and resolving interpersonal relationship issues in order to remove or reduce emotional stress could assist the condition accordingly. Counselling by experienced persons and a discipline, that includes sticking with some good habits and resisting from others (generally known as fasting) is usually needed. Undisciplined attempts with dietary changes and various “exercises” alone don’t seem to be enough to cure primary hyperhidrosis though

  44. QUESTION:
    Are sweaty hands and feet in infants normal?
    My 4 month old daughter always seems to have sweaty hands and feet. At first, it was just her feet, and now it seems like she has sweaty hands. We do dress her warm because it's still pretty cold here at night. But usually, we give her feet some air by taking off her socks, and don't put a onesie on her, just a sleep and play. Then sometimes during the day when she's just wearing a sleep and play, she'll sweat a bit during her naps. Our room doesn't generate heat for some reason like the rest of the house does, so it's rare if the heat comes on in our room. So usually it's either very cold, or in a comfortable temperature. Is this normal for infants to have sweaty hands and feet? Or is it generic? My dad and I usually as sweaty feet, but not as much as my daughter. What is this caused by?

    • ANSWER:
      I never thought babies sweat untill my dd was born. She is like her daddy, there bodies feel cold different than I do. I am always cold and very bundled up. I realized after my dd would wake up soaked from sweat that she isn't like me and needs less clothes. So she slept in light weight pj's never with feet(she HATED feeties and socks when she slept)
      Babies bodies are alot different than ours so, she may seem to sweat more than you and your dad but...as babies maybe???you and your dad sweat more? I have knoticed my dd sweats alot less now than when she was a baby. she is now 5. I let her sleep in what she wants...she knows how her body feels. in the winter she wears a summer nightgown and a blanket. I wear fleece pj's, a sweatshirt, slipper socks and 2 heavy blankets. we all feel cold differenly.

  45. QUESTION:
    Sweaty Hands and feet?

It probably is cuz whenever i have a test the paper is slightly wrinkled when i'm done. I'm always warm to the touch i'm never cold, my friend told me i had good circulation. My hands will always sweat when i'm outside, sometimes at school, sometimes at home aswell and usually at work. My feet will sweat at home and at work too.

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

  47. QUESTION:
    I have very sweaty feet and hands. HELP FAST?
    Hi. I'm a 13 year old girl, and I have VERY sweaty hands and feet. They sweat almost all the time, anywhere I am, almost anything I'm doing, except maybe the rare times. Or times when I'm in cold cold water. Its so bad because I have to suffer while wearing flipflops, because wearing no socks makes my problem worse. Its like the socks absorb the sweat or something. Its also embarassing, especially if I have to hold someone's hand eventually and I have this! please help! fast. thanks...:)
    yes i do wear cotton clothing..?
    and i don't really wear polyester ever.
    and i used to drink lots of pop and juice but recently i've totally cut down on that. only sometimes i'll have juice, but RARELY i'll have a pop.

    • ANSWER:
      I am not a doctor, but it may be that you have something called hyper hidrosis which is abnormal sweating of feet and hands plus I think sweating or flushing in other areas of the body like your face. I have a friend who suffered from that.

      I just looked it up because I knew there was some surgery and for sure botox that they give to people to sure or treat it. Here is a good (I thin) place to go and look at what may be happening to you and what some of the possible solutions are.
      http://www.newportbeachsweatclinic.com/

      Read it and other sources, talk to your parents about it and ask to go see a doctor about it. Print off the info you find there on that site and others related and bring it with you to talk to your parents and then (hopefully) to talk to a doc.

      It is not just a matter of being embarrassed. It is something that is going haywire in your body that could be corrected.

      In the meantime, try a roll on or spray antiperspirant on your feet and hands. Use medicated talc in your shoes like desinex.

    Sweaty hands and feet?
    I'm 11 years old...and i have slightly sweaty hands and feet...but not when im cold, just like 80 degrees or above. and i do dance so i walk around barefoot and i hate this...anything i could do at home???

    • ANSWER:
      Stay barefoot as much as you can in warm weather otherwise the moisture of your sweat will build up inside your shoes and promote the growth of bacteria and fungal spores.

  50. QUESTION:
    My feet are cold and sweaty?
    My feets are always ice cold and kinda sticky feeling. My hands are ALWAYS sweaty and kinda warm What could this be from. Also when i was younger i use to have to put heating pads on my legs because they hurt so bad, my parents never really went to the drs to find out what it was from. But why are my feet always ice cold? I was thinking either bad cyculation or diabetic?? Im only 16

    • ANSWER:
      You probably have sweaty palms and sweaty feet, medical term is palmar and plantar (palmo-plantar) hyperhidrosis.

      There may be some underlying condition like elevated hormone thyroxine, but in most cases the physical cause is not known.

      Psychical cause may be some constant conflict in your mind that you're not aware of, or you deny. This is probably the case, if you sweat excesivelly during strong emotions and other stress.

      There is one anti-perspirant (Drysol), you can get it in pharmacy without prescription. This may help a bit, but will not solve the original problem. For additional info check the link.


Cold Hands And Feet Sweaty

Want to know the real cold feet & hands causes? Today discover the 5 main causes for cold hands and feet and how to stop feeling cold! Always having cold feet and hands is an indicator symptom of a greater issue at hand that is impacting your overall body temperature. The good news is that by understanding the 5 causes below you will be able to finally stop feeling cold all the time!

The Top 5 Causes of Cold Hands & Feet

Parasites: Much more common than you would expect, parasites are not limited to 3rd world countries only. They frequently affect people in 1st world nations such as the USA. They feed on the nutrition that should enter into your cells, causing a mal-absorption syndrome which very commonly mimics anemia and conditions where the body feels cold and as though it's malnourished. Most tests for parasites are in-effective and doctors when asked about them will for the most part only laugh, but it's no coincidence that so many people when they do a thorough parasite cleanse feel 10 times better and symptoms such as chronic cold hands just disappears.

Allergies: Chronic allergies either to foods you eat on a regular basis or an environmental allergy that you're unaware of can perpetually sustain a reaction which causes lowered blood pressure & constantly cold hands and feet. The solution is to begin an elimination diet of the most common allergenic foods, this is something a candida diet will accomplish. As well pay attention to which environments make you feel cold when the temperature is perfectly fine. Consciously finding these causes will significantly affect how you feel.

    • ANSWER:
      You have exactly the same symptoms I did, it is basically called Hyperhidrosis or more simply excessive sweating.

      Just remembering what is was like sweating all the time give the the shivers, it was such an annoying health problem and I honestly though I was going to have to live like that forever.

      I have to admit, I wasted my time and money on useless products that promised to control sweating and body odor but none of them worked. I joined an online hyperhidrosis community where people shared their experiences with treating sweating problems and they got to talking about Natural Treatments.

      That was the solution all along! It really is easy to use natural remedies and it is a lot cheaper then those other products that do nothing. I really suggest you take a look at the natural remedies and the guide to curing hyperhidrosis naturally, I've included the source below.

  7. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have hands and feet are freezing cold, but sweaty?
    I sometimes get sweaty but my hands and feet (and even the tip of my nose) are freezing cold. All of the sudden I will start getting chills and sweating at the same time even though I am not in a cold environment. I actually shiver and sweat at the same time. I'm not menopausal (I'm 32), and I am fit. This is something chronic, not a cold or fever. Every day or two this happens to me and I don't know why. I know I should see a doctor, but I just want to know if anyone else has this problem and if they know what it is.

    • ANSWER:
      I get this but I also have rheumatoid arthritis.

      Inside your body is cold, in the bones. I would go get checked out if I were you just to make sure everything is OK.
      Our hands and feet and even your nose your body is going to protect all your vital organs with what heat it has first, then it will go to those parts of the body to heat them. This is why people who get frost bite loose there toes and fingers first.

      Women get this more then men to as well. Also if you are not a big women (fat) you will get this more. It probably is nothing but go get checked out anyways. Best safe then sorry.

  8. QUESTION:
    My hands and feet are always cold and sweaty?
    My hands and feet are always very very very cold, and people often complain but they're always clammy and sweaty. They hurt all the time and socks and gloves don't usually help, I usually have to soak them in warm water for half an hour.

  9. QUESTION:
    Why are my feet and hands always icy cold and sweaty?
    my hands are always cold! No matter the weather. And my feet are always red and get sweaty easily! i have bad circulation obviously. What can i do? What does it mean?

    • ANSWER:
      i have the exact same problem. try elevating your feet when you're sitting down and becoming more active. when you move, it allows your muscles to work, when that happens, more blood starts flow so your hands and feet will warm up. when you're sitting down try not to cross your legs for more than 20 minutes as it can block the blood flow and also cause spider veins (you don't want that!)
      try staying in areas which have a neutral temperature (not cold, not hot) as for the redness in your feet, if its on the soles then it could mean that you have flat feet, so check that out..
      i hope that helps :)

  10. QUESTION:
    what can help cold+sweaty hands and feet?

    • ANSWER:
      You suffer from hyperhidrosis.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperhidrosis

      First try antiperspirant like Drysol, Maxim, or Megadry.

      If those do not help and are too costly (they only work temporarily) you should research more on iontophoresis machines.
      These machines can help victims hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis machines are costly though.

      Here's a link to more treatments info:
      http://www.esfbchannel.com/treatments/sweating.php
      And
      http://www.socialphobiaworld.com/postt6814.htm

      I would not recommend surgery (ETS) unless you have tried every treatment possible and that includes just living with hyperhidrosis. There are many risks involved in ETS, contrary to what ETS surgeons say. If you ever want to go through with surgery I will recommend you research as much as possible on ETS online and get opinions on it from different MDs medical doctors that are not ETS surgeons such as dermatologists. ETS surgeons might hide information from you to rake in the $$$. This has been done before.

      Hope this helps!
      Good luck with your hyperhidrosis treatments.

  15. QUESTION:
    What can I do about my extremely cold and sweaty hands and feet?
    I am a female (teen), with low iron. I am not sure if it is a severe or weak form of anemia; all I know, is that I have low iron and the only meats I can eat are:

    1.Chicken
    2.Fish (seafood)
    -all red meats are out of the question, because of religious beliefs-sorry everyone.

    I notice that my hands and feet are either:
    1.simply freezing
    2. freezing AND sweaty
    3. the palms of my hands and soles of my feet are discolored sometimes (blue or really red)
    4. After sitting at the movies (and crossing my legs), I experience poor balance when I stand (but this might be something that applies to everyone..)

    In addition to this, I also have "permanent" dark circles under my eyes, which leads me to believe I just have an iron problem (or, demented blood vessels..ha).

    Any help/ POSSIBLE diagnosis would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      The cold extremities, the colour changes and poor balance indicates that you are having a circulation problem. Sweat is usually the bodies way of regulating its temperature.
      The circle around your eyes could also be an indication of iron deficiency, lack of sleep, dehydration, thinning of the skin, or kidney yang deficiency.
      You might be right when you say you're having an anemia (iron deficiency) or you might be having Raynauld’s Disease.

      You should include in your diet lots of raw foods. For your iron source, your diet should include eggs, green leafy vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, including almonds, avocados, beets, blackstrap molasses, dulse, kelp, kidney and lima beans, lentils, millet, peaches, pears, pumpkins, watercress, broccoli, parsley and celery.

      Other foods that you should include in your diet (for kidney balance) are lobster, sardines, shrimp, walnut raspberry, pistachio, fennel, dill seed and clove.

      To ensure that you are getting enough B vitamins you should also include asparagus, milk, yogurt, spinach, Brussels sprouts,potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, cheese, banana, walnuts, cantaloupe and plantains.

      You may continue to eat your chicken a seafood (inclusive of fish)

      It would also be good if you speak with your physician about your symptoms since there could be many other conditions that display the same set of symptoms.

      (Please accept my humblest apology for foods that I might mention that are against your religious belief.)

    she feels cool to touch, and I keep socks on her. Yet when I take her socks off her feet sweat and feel cool or clammy

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know about newborns, but since I was a toddler I've had very sweaty hands and feet due to hyperhidrosis. My hands and feet also stay very cold.
      It's not really dangerous, just more annoying than anything.

    My feet and hands are always painfully freezing cold?
    My feet are worse than my hands usually. My feet get so cold that they hurt and eventually go numb. I've tried to wear socks and slippers but all that does is make my feet sweaty while cold. I can be sitting in a comfortable room with the rest of my body being a completely perfect temperature and my feet are freezing. I can even be hot and my feet are still ridiculously cold. My feet are like this continuously almost all of the time. My toes are the worst, they are so uncomfortable. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Cayenne pepper can help to increase the circulation in your extremities(hands and feet), the easiest way(if you are like most people and don't like swallowing a teaspoon of cayenne in water) is to take a product like Solaray's Cool Cayenne that is in capsules so you can swallow them without burning at the mouth. If you do find you enjoy cayenne as a seasoning to food then go for it!

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry! You probably have an annoying, but harmless condition, where you sweat on your feet and hands more than most people. It is called hyperhidrosis. There are ways to control it. Read this article. It might help.

  24. QUESTION:
    Why are my hands and feet always cold, red and a bit sweaty?
    I'm really pale too, with kind of blotchy skin. It's really annoying as it stops me from wearing stuff I'd like to, like open toe shoes. Any suggestions as to what might be up?

    • ANSWER:
      It seems like you have a fever or you are not eating a balanced diet on a regular basis. I don't really know whats going on. If you do have a fever, take an advil or Tylenol. Better yet, go see a Doctor who can diagnose your condition properly and give you the proper cure.

      Good Luck and I hope this helps!

  25. QUESTION:
    Feet and hands are always cold and sweaty?
    What's the problem?

    • ANSWER:
      You might suffer from hyperhidrosis.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperhidrosis

      First try antiperspirant like Drysol, Maxim, or Megadry.
      I use Drysol to get me through the weeks and it works pretty well. (www.buydrysol.com or www.amazon.com)

      If those do not help and are too costly (they only work temporarily) you should research more on iontophoresis machines.
      These machines can help victims hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis machines are costly though.

      Here's links to more treatments info:
      http://www.esfbchannel.com/treatments/sweating.php
      And
      http://www.socialphobiaworld.com/postt6814.htm

      I would not recommend surgery (ETS) unless you have tried every treatment possible and that includes just living with hyperhidrosis. (research about ETS contraversies yourself)

      Hope this helps!
      Good luck with your hyperhidrosis treatments.

  28. QUESTION:
    I get really sweaty hands and feet even when it's cold what should i do?
    will putting deoderant on them help?

    • ANSWER:
      It's actually called hyperhidrosis, I have the same thing.

      You can do a number of things on your own to reduce sweating and body odor. The following suggestions may help:

      Bathe daily. Regular bathing helps keep the number of bacteria on your skin in check.
      Try relaxation techniques. Consider relaxation techniques such as yoga, meditation or biofeedback. These can help you learn to control the stress that triggers perspiration.
      Change your diet. If foods or beverages cause you to sweat more than usual or your perspiration to smell, consider eliminating caffeinated drinks from your diet as well as foods with strong odors, such as garlic and onions.
      Choose natural-fiber clothing. Wear natural fabrics, such as cotton, wool and silk, which allow your skin to breathe. When you exercise, you might prefer high-tech fabrics that keeps moisture away from your skin.
      Apply antiperspirants nightly. At bedtime, apply antiperspirants to sweaty palms or soles of the feet. Try perfume-free antiperspirants.
      Dry your feet thoroughly after you bathe. Microorganisms thrive in the damp spaces between your toes. Use OTC foot powders to help absorb sweat.
      Choose shoes and socks made of natural materials. Shoes made of natural materials, such as leather, can help prevent sweaty feet by allowing your feet to breathe.
      Rotate your shoes. Shoes won't completely dry overnight, so try not to wear the same pair two days in a row if you have trouble with sweaty feet.
      Wear the right socks. Cotton and wool socks help keep your feet dry because they absorb moisture. When you're active, moisture-wicking athletic socks are a good choice.
      Change your socks often. Change socks or hose once or twice a day, drying your feet thoroughly each time. Women may try pantyhose with cotton soles.
      Air your feet. Go barefoot when you can, or at least slip out of your shoes now and then.

    Chinese Medicine: Face, hands, and feet warming up due to Yang Kidney/Jing building?
    I have always had sweaty and cold hands and feet and that is important in Chinese Medicine. Now that I take their Herbal Products that are meant for Kidney Yang and Yang Jing, sometimes for a moment my hands, feet, and/or face warm up. Is that due to the Herbs and the Yang building? Why is it only for a moment and only slightly? Does that mean it is building?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it could mean that the yang in your body is building. Maybe keep it up and start to notice other changes like emotionally. It might take a while to notice those effects but definitely pay attention.

  33. QUESTION:
    Why are My Hands and Feet Constantly Sweaty?
    Even when I'm relaxed at room temperature my hands and feet are always really sweaty. Then, when it's really cold, they get paper dry and the skin between my fingers gets sort of flakey.
    The only time they're normal is right after they get wet from water and I dry them off, or when the air is between cool and room temperature.
    I don't really drink more than the average person, and I'm not morbidly obese or anything.
    Is it genetic? My cousin had the same thing, but she got the surgery to only sweat on some parts of her back.

      My friend had the same problem and she went to a natures sunshine place on got a herb to take care of the problem. She never complains anymore. I have heard of people that had botox or surgery for the problem though.

  34. QUESTION:
    Cold hands and feet what could be wrong?
    I always have cold hands and feet that are often an annoyance. I wash them with warm water but after around 5 minutes or so they get cold again. My hands are normal color(reddish even)however my hands are often cold. However when my hands get sweaty and warm during exercise and after eating. Also I am underweight so could that be causing it? btw I am 13. Also, i often walk barefoot on the cold hard wood floors. my hands have never been able to keep warm for long, and after warming up within the hour my hands become cold again (usually quite cold) much to the chagrin of anyone i come in contact with (besides the summertime when my extremities are often quite warm, and i know it is summertime but here it is quite cold, i live on the mountainside where it drops to about 4 degrees overnight in the middle of the summer) i also notice that my feet are even colder, washing them with warm water is the only solution but they get cold again after a while. also, could this possibly be affecting my weight (perhaps i don't absorb enough nutrients because all the calories go to my hands? i don't know?) Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem?
    btw i do not have a slow metabolism, i eat often eat much more than my parents and yet i do not gain a pound, when my friend is gaining about 30 pounds/year even though hes already overweight

    • ANSWER:
      This could be multiple things. The most common are, anxiety (which causes the blood to flow to the organs and away from your extremities), and problems with circulation. You don't need a high level of anxiety to alter blood flow (signs would be feeling like you don't want to sit still or restlessness). Both of these can be helped. If you want better circulation you could start running/exercising which would improve this a lot. You could also take a natural vasodilator (something that would make the blood vessels relax, like Arginine). Once your circulation gets better it will help the problem. To get rid of anxiety you can go two routes, natural or use prescription medication. Personally I recommend natural remedies. A natural way that is proven would be kavalactones (they potentiate gamma-aminobutyric acid which is a neurotransmitter that will reduce anxiety). Kavalactones have been shown to be as effective as benzodiazapines. As a side note I have used them before these before with remarkable success.

  38. QUESTION:
    Cold/clammy hands (and feet)?
    More abnormalities in my bodily functions... I'm 16 (I don't know if that has anything to do with this) and I have this problem with my hands (and feet) where they are almost always cold and sweaty. It makes me very self-consious, and I do whatever I can to avoid high-fives and handshakes. The only time my hands are not cold and sweaty is when it's VERY warm around me. Besides times like those my hands are about 99% of the time cold and clammy. It's extremely uncomfortable, and when the room I'm in is cold or the weather is cold outside, my hands move very slowly and the skin on my hands (or feet) are afflicted with pain. I'm not sure what to do about this and I really want to fix the problem...

    • ANSWER:
      Usually very cold hands and feet are due to circulation issues. You should make a dr. appt and see if this is the case. But at 16, you seem young for circulatory problems...but hey, you never know.

  39. QUESTION:
    ok why are my hands and feet so sweaty all the time even when I'm cold?

    • ANSWER:
      you may have palmar hyperhidrosis.
      The most likely cause of sweaty palms, as well as other types of hyperhidrosis, is an overactive sympathetic nervous system
      Conservative Management of Palmar HyperhidrosisConservative management should be coupled with prescribed treatment by a medical practitioner to reduce the symptoms.

      •Counseling may be effective in managing primary palmar hyperhidrosis in cases of mental-emotional etiology.
      •Trigger foods and aggravating factors should be noted if possible and relevant dietary changes should be implemented.
      •Effective prevention of secondary palmar hyperhidrosis is difficult with conservative management and drug therapy or surgery may be required.
      •Excessive physical activity and extremes of heat may be two trigger factors that should be avoided as far as possible.
      •In cases of diabetes, a glucose controlled diet with low glycemic index may improve glucose tolerance which could assist with palmar hyperhidrosis.
      •Abstinence from alcohol and narcotics is advisable if it is the causative factor for sweaty palms.
      •Stimulants such as caffeine and nicotine may aggravate palmar hypehidrosis and should relevant dietary and lifestyle changes should be implemented.
      •Anti-perspirant compounds like aluminum chloride can be applied on the palms to reduce moisture or palmar surfaces. Recent research on an aluminum sesquichlorohydrate foam has shown that it is effective in reducing sweat in palmar hyperhidrosis (2).
      Treatment of Palmar HyperhidrosisStandard therapeutic protocol may differ among cases of palmar hyperhidrosis depending on medical history and underlying pathology.

      1.Anticholinergic drugs have a direct effect on the sympathetic nervous system although there are numerous side effects.
      2.Treatment should be directed at contributing factors.
      3.Ionophoresis involves the use of electrotherapeutic measures to reduce the activity of sweat glands.
      4.Botulinum injections at the affected area may be useful for its anticholinergic effects.
      5.Surgery should be considered if drug therapy proves ineffective. Endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy involves resection of the sympathetic nerve supply to the affected area. This prevents nerve stimulation of the sweat gland of the palms. However surgery has a host of complications including exacerbating the problem or increasing generalized hyperhidrosis (3).
      Possible Approach to Primary Palmar HyperhidrosisIt has been reported many times that excessive sweating in focal hyperhidrosis (including palmar hyperhidrosis) was triggered by “emotional stimuli” (3,5).

      It seems like persons with primary hyperhidrosis have their sympathetic nervous system in a constant “on” position (8). Considering that no neural disorder on a biochemical, histopathological or any other physical level, except sympathetic overactivity itself was found, it seems reasonable to surmise that this high sympathetic tone is being constantly influenced by impulses from cerebral cortex, specifically from the frontal lobe. The frontal lobe of the cerebral cortex is responsible for thought processes, meaning from the affected person’s own will. Connections among lymbic system (responsible for emotions), hypothalamus and sweat glands are also known.

      It seems reasonable that a particular thinking pattern causes constantly increased sympathetic tone in a person with hyperhidrosis. It is therefore possible to expect that changing this thinking pattern can help to lower sympathetic activity below the point where everyday stress would not trigger sweating.

      Changing attitudes to life experiences, improving coping skills and resolving interpersonal relationship issues in order to remove or reduce emotional stress could assist the condition accordingly. Counselling by experienced persons and a discipline, that includes sticking with some good habits and resisting from others (generally known as fasting) is usually needed. Undisciplined attempts with dietary changes and various “exercises” alone don’t seem to be enough to cure primary hyperhidrosis though

  40. QUESTION:
    My hands use to be cold now they're always sweaty?
    My hands and feet use to be so cold especially in the winter time to the point where they would become numb. Now, my hands are constantly sweaty and I don't know why. Its not just my hands but my entire body's always sweaty. Its embarrassing to shake hands with someone and your hands are dripping with sweat. Is there any reason why I'm always like this and is there anything i cant do. I know maybe people say you get sweaty because your nervous but that's not the case. My hands are sweaty all the time....

    • ANSWER:
      There is a product on the market called Hypercare. It is a prescription which can be written by a doctor, and completely prevents sweating. You have to be cautious in the heat, because sweating is our body's way of cooling off, and preventing that entirely can be dangerous- especially in the summer.
      If Hypercare doesn't work, my doctor told me that Botox was prescribed for excessive sweating. But eww! I totally wouldn't do that!
      Hypercare works really well for me, and I think it should work for you as well. Just find a doctor who is sensitive to your needs. Good luck.

I have tried wearing socks but when I take my socks off my feet are still cold so it doesnt really make a difference? What is this and what can I do to warm my hands/feet up?
    I'm never cold anywhere else, just my hands and feet, lol :)

    • ANSWER:
      You may be anemic. Schedule an appointment with your doctor and they'll take blood from your arm and they'll test it to see if you're iron level is where it should be. I had the same problem, I was always unusually cold when everyone else said they were fine. Went to the doctor, got the test done, and they contacted me saying I was anemic with an iron level of 6 when it should have been at atleast 12!

      They give you iron pills to help you and they help A TON.

But why are my feet always ice cold? I was thinking either bad cyculation or diabetic?? Im only 16

    • ANSWER:
      You probably have sweaty palms and sweaty feet, medical term is palmar and plantar (palmo-plantar) hyperhidrosis.

      There may be some underlying condition like elevated hormone thyroxine, but in most cases the physical cause is not known.

      Psychical cause may be some constant conflict in your mind that you're not aware of, or you deny. This is probably the case, if you sweat excesivelly during strong emotions and other stress.

      There is one anti-perspirant (Drysol), you can get it in pharmacy without prescription. This may help a bit, but will not solve the original problem. For additional info check the link.

  44. QUESTION:
    Are sweaty hands and feet in infants normal?
    My 4 month old daughter always seems to have sweaty hands and feet. At first, it was just her feet, and now it seems like she has sweaty hands. We do dress her warm because it's still pretty cold here at night. But usually, we give her feet some air by taking off her socks, and don't put a onesie on her, just a sleep and play. Then sometimes during the day when she's just wearing a sleep and play, she'll sweat a bit during her naps. Our room doesn't generate heat for some reason like the rest of the house does, so it's rare if the heat comes on in our room. So usually it's either very cold, or in a comfortable temperature. Is this normal for infants to have sweaty hands and feet? Or is it generic? My dad and I usually as sweaty feet, but not as much as my daughter. What is this caused by?

    • ANSWER:
      I never thought babies sweat untill my dd was born. She is like her daddy, there bodies feel cold different than I do. I am always cold and very bundled up. I realized after my dd would wake up soaked from sweat that she isn't like me and needs less clothes. So she slept in light weight pj's never with feet(she HATED feeties and socks when she slept)

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should go see a specialist.

      There are real medical disorders for this problem.

      Excessive hand sweating or as its known as palmar hyperhidrosis is the most common form of excessive sweating. Those who suffer from it start having the symptoms at a young age usually grade school. Its intensity can vary among people. It does have a genetic relation and about 50% of the patients have a family history with the condition.

      Foot sweating is known as plantar hyperhidrosis is also a part of the excessive sweating syndrome. When foot sweating is presented alone one can use lotions, or iontophoresis in order to alleviate some of the symptoms. Lumbar smypathectomy as a surgical option is not usually offered as a treatement modality. There are some reports about lumbar sympathectomy to offer relief for patients with plantar hyperhidrosis but this surgical option is not being practiced among U.S. and European Surgeons.

    Deadly? I've had it my whole life

    • ANSWER:
      My first instinct was to tell you to exercise more frequently, but you said that you already do so that isn't a great suggestion. When you work out, is it a real vigorous, cardio work-out or is it more geared towards weights and strength training? Make sure that whatever kind of exercise you're doing is cardio-related so that it will really get your heart pumping hard. The point is that you get your heart stronger so that with each beat it pumps more blood with more force, meaning it is more likely to get all the way down to your extremities.

      As long as your skin isn't discolored and you aren't losing any sensation in your hands or feet, I doubt there is a serious medical problem related to your poor circulation. Some people just naturally have cold hands and feet, particularly those who are tall and/or slender. I have perpetually cold hands and feet, even during the summertime, it's just one of those things you deal with. If your hands feel cold, try rubbing them together for a minute or so. The friction will encourage blood flow to that part of your body, which will warm them up.

      Hope that helps!

      Stay barefoot as much as you can in warm weather otherwise the moisture of your sweat will build up inside your shoes and promote the growth of bacteria and fungal spores.
