Although ive posted this in the original post already, wanted to make available for all to see.
I have suffered excessive sweating, face, hair, all down back, under boobs, basically down to my thighs for over 30 years. Tried many treatments but then ...
I was finally referred to new consultant. She is actually a consultant in dermatology which I found strange when I first had appointment come through. She first did blood tests chest extra examination to rule out any other possible cause & on my 2nd visit she prescribed me a tablet Propantheline Bromide 15mg tablets, 1 a day to be taken for a week, 2 a day for 2nd week & 3 a day for 2 months till I returned. Also a cream Glycopyrrolate 1% In cream, the cream is unlicensed & has to be ordered from Canada. Anyways Karen stop babbling & tell everyone lol. After over 30 years of severe sweating when a short walk would leave my face hair t short n jacket soaked through, even after the 1st week I noticed a difference, I didn't have cream until week 4. Week 3 & my only symtoms from 3 tablets a day was dry mouth. If my back does sweat it seems to dry up quickly & maybe I get a moist t shirt not a soaking wet patch. The cream which should be used in morning and at bed time I have found makes me sweat a little more especially in forehead & back, so at minute working between 2& 3 tablets a day depending on if ive got a lot to do like driving & hospital visits etc. I can honestly say I cried my eyes out as this is the 1st thing that's given me hope in all those years & so nice to get home without underwear being soaked, when ive had no enjoyment lol. I hope this reaches everyone as I had to share the news with those I know suffer as greatly as I do & all that do suffer but maybe don't post about it. Obviously my reaction to tablets is purely my own & others may have side effects or conditions that preclude such treatment. But I would definitly ask for a referral to Dermatologist if you have gone down the other channels previously & really hope that others can gain maybe from
This treatment or other suggestions as consultant was first one I felt took the condition of Hyperhydrosis seriously & was aware of the despair embarrassment & frustration it causes, fingers crossed it continues to keep giving me the great effects it is & more & others can get some hope from
Either this treatment or other possibilites😊 xxxx
