Old 3 Weeks Ago

Hi there

I've been seeing a dermatologist for hiperhidrosis for a few years now. Tried everything: oxybutynin, beta blockers, glycopyrolate, iontophoresis... the only thing that worked on my hands is botox!

Anyway... I've been offered no solution for the lower back/crotch area. I have a feeling there may be an underlying condition or something as I feel the heat more than most, always have a desk fan running at work even with air con.

I have a real problem with lower back/crotch sweating. If you see the attached photo, that's after standing in a meeting room for only ten minutes, so it's pretty bad.

Does anyone have any ideas? I've tried talc etc. It feels like there's something raising my body temperature or something which causes me to sweat excessively and I do not know how to get referred elsewhere. Dermatologist said there was nothing she could do for that area.

Try Certain Dri. They also make special t-shirts which you most likely don't need, but they may make underwear. I wear 50/50 boxer shorts since they dry faster than 100 cotton. Secure wipes from PharmacyCA. Unfortunately it sounds like you have tried most things. It may be possible to scotch guard your pants so moisture doesn't penetrate through. I feel for you. It's a tough area to treat.

Try Vichy 7 days cream for your lower back, apply it every night. Good luck!

Try for extra padding. I'd avoid using things like talcom powder too as I'm pretty sure that isn't good for you.

Best of luck!
