A person who sweats excessively knows that sweating need not be limited to armpit sweating alone. You can sweat in other places on your body such as the genital area, around the toes of your feet (which can lead to athletes foot if youre not careful), as well as be able to sweat on your hands, your forehead, your face, your back.
The list can be fairly long, but suffice it to say that you can sweat just about anywhere on your body. Armpit sweating however is the most common form of sweating and the one which most of us tends to focus on, even if we suffer from excessive sweating of other areas on the body.
That said, armpit sweating is also the area which is targeted the most by the deodorant and antiperspirant companies. They focus on these areas rather than any other place on your body for the simple reason that most people only ever experience armpit sweating.
This is the reason why we are bombarded by product after product of underarm deodorant or antiperspirant. The next sweat prone area to make the advertising campaign list is that of the foot. And a good thing too, just think of the big mess we would be put into if it were drilled into us that we also needed to eliminate facial sweating, or back sweating, or your scalp from sweating!
Most people are already very conscious of any type of armpit sweating be it excessive or normal, and will go to any lengths to cover up or prevent any signs that they are sweating. This is a phobia that has gradually manifested itself in our collective conscious to the extent that we will feel dreadfully embarrassed if we are caught unawares and find dark sweat stains under our arms.
And although having a sweat-induced odor about your person is most definitely not something to be proud of, do we really have to go through mind numbing embarrassment every time that we experience more than a light sweat and find that we are starting to smell very slightly off?
True, you dont want to meet anyone you know when youre in this condition, but then again, thats what deodorants and things are there for, to help us with these little problems that life presents to us.
The best thing that you can do for armpit sweating of any kind is to have a good daily hygiene routine. Couple this with a good diet, (and by this think of one that is primarily free of such foodstuffs as onions and garlic!), use a good deodorant and you should be just fine. Besides, you know that if you ever need it, there are othr treatment options available to you.
