					Sweating is a physiological response for all humans. How to deal with body odor is
another battle that we all face. Some times both of these are problematic. The good
news is these problems are usually easy to fix and are only temporary. Excessive
sweating and body odor are an every day battle for some. Living life like that is very
difficult. Almost every day leads to some sort of embarrassment in the form of sweat
stains, funky smells or any number of other problems that result when a person sweats
too much. The good news is there are things you can do to control both these issues.
Use the following tips to get the upper hand in battling these problems.

Avoid wearing clothing made from synthetic fabrics. Wearing polyester, in particular,
will add to your issues with body oder and excessive sweating. These types of fabrics
keep your skin from breathing by clinging to you. The body needs air circulation to
cool off and when that circulation is hampered your body sweats more to compensate.
Body odor can reach embarrassing levels when subjected to this excessive sweating.
Avoiding synthetic fabrics will make cleaning your laundry easier. So choose clothes
that are looser and made with natural fabrics such as cotton. Synthetics should be left
on the shelves and hangers of the thrift shops.

Not all cases can be treated by clothing choices, though; some will need medical help.
Most commonly, antidepressants or anti-anxiety medications is what is prescribed to
help with excessive sweating and body odor. These medications are used because they
help you keep calmer and more even tempered. When a person is angry or nervous
their body naturally produces more sweat. You will produce less sweat if you find a
way to remain calm in stressful situations. When you sweat less, you will find it easier
to deal with any body odor.

In rare cases, the only solution left is to get Botox injections but this is only for
extreme cases. Extreme cases does not refer to the sweating you do after exercising or
for every day type sweating. Botox should only be used as a last resort for intense
sweating that happens and is beyond your control. The botox is injected to keep your
nerves that control the sweat glands from triggering. It doesn't take much Botox at all
to completely incapacitate these glands. Do not attempt this method without first
talking to your doctor and an endocrinologist. A doctor's consent is required for use of
botox in this situation especially because it is a poison.

Sweating is a common problem among lots of people. Because of excessive sweating,
increased body odor levels become very worrisome. Ruining clothes with excessive
sweat stains is another worry. The cost of deodorants and antiperspirants can also be
of concern. With all these concerns filling your mind, it's no wonder if you forget that
this problem is fixable. A healthcare professional can help you figure out the best
methods for treating excessive sweating and body odor if traditional methods are not
working very well.
