If you sweat more than most people, take heart. There are things you can do to reduce sweating and body odour.

The American Mayo Clinic offers these suggestions:

  • Bathe daily. This helps control the numbers of bacteria on your skin.
  • Wear natural fibre clothing, such as cotton, wool, and silk. These fabrics allow your skin to breathe.
  • Apply antiperspirant nightly to sweaty palms or the soles of your feet.
  • Try yoga, meditation or biofeedback. Learning how to relax can help you control the stress that triggers perspiration.
  • If certain foods cause you to sweat more than usual, change your diet.
