Sweaty

Hi Doc
I' m a 27 year old woman. I have " over-active"  sweat glands - my underarms produce too much sweat. I' ve tried various anti-perspirants, but within about 3 hours, my underarms will be dripping with sweat.
Is there anything youcan recommend?
Thanks.

Dear Me
Try Perspirex/Driclor. Also read up on "hyperhydrosis" - there are medications you can try if the local treatments do not help, alternatively one can try Botox or sympatectomy operation.
