My face, specially forehead and Neck , armpit and groin area especially the underbelly area to sweats too much. Off late due to itching of scrotum I applied White vinegar and then after rinsing off with water and then applying Caladryll Lotion, I got some relief.. For my neck rashes I used Retin A cream after which the keloid like substances are slowing responding to it though newer one though few are also coming up . rEcently I had taken Diflucon 150 single dose after my wife got some Vaginal and urine infection. After that today I sweated excessively and so much that I was in one stage , unable to open my eyes and the salty sweats were coming to my eye.

  • no one here is a doctor sandycb you need to go to your regular doctor where you live. we are just a group of people suffering from fibromyalgia who support each other. please make yourself an appointment with a doctor asap. there are no doctors or nurses on this forum.

  • Hi sandycb

    I am so genuinely sorry to read this and as woopcushen says none of us on here are doctors my friend. I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please see your own doctor.

    All my hopes and dreams for you


  • I get that too since I've been perimenensal but as you a guy it's not that. There is a name for excess sweating...check the Internet for the name then ask your doc if you could have that and tests done

  • Hyperhidrosis - unfortunately I've had it since I was 14.

  • Sorry i cant help with a way to stop sweating but i do use Sudacrem for my sweat rashes.

  • Hello there- can I ask you if you had this condition when you lived in India? Has your g.p not suggested a tropical medicine referral or a dermatologist for the reactions? I wouldn,t keep using anything other than that a doctor prescribes and one medicine can cause another medicine to react. Insist on a referral at least to a dermatologist that will open the door at hospital for you to be forwarded to the right medic for investigations. Good luck our friend you are obviously suffering.

  • I'm sorry to hear of your problem. I wish I could help more but the only thing I know of is a powder that will keep you dry better than any other. It's better than anything, even prescription, that my dermatologist has recommended when I have painful rashes. It allows my rashes to heal. The name is Caldesene protecting powder and it comes in a pink 5 oz. canister and is often with the baby section products. I get it at Walgreen's drug store in the US. Hopefully you can find it in a Walgreen's, Sam's or Walmart or other store near you. I wish you all the best in coping with this problem.

  • I agree I use that power to I get it in ireland every time I'm home or family bring me some over u can get it on Amazon but much more expensive than what I pay
