    Question Excessive Sweating in the Groin

    Ok, here it is.

    When I was in my early 20's I developed excessive sweating in my right armpit. I mean drops of sweat would be rolling down my body. We'll this I figured was due more to anxiety than something physical.

    The armpit problem subsided, as I got older. In my later 20's I developed excessive sweating in my groin area. When I get really nervous or anxious I sweat a lot there and it goes through multiple layers of clothing, which makes me think it's psychological. Well it's not because when I go to the gym and after a few exercises I really start sweating in my groin area. It's nasty.

    I don't see any abscesses or red areas or have any discomfort or itching.

    Does anybody know how to fix this? Has anybody else had this problem?

    I'm in good health besides this problem. I do not have any other symptoms.

    I had to Google this one... I remembered hearing about this problem but couldn't remember what it was called.

    Came up with this site: [url]http://www.excessivesweating.org/[/url]

    The condition is called hyperhidrosis.

    Looks like you'll find plenty of info on this site... I'd definitely read through it and go talk to your doctor about the situation. Even though it doesn't hurt or itch, like you said - it feels gross and it's bothering you enough to want to get rid of it. So don't feel like it's not worth troubling the doctor (besides, you're paying the bill hehe).

    Let us know how it goes!

    Rick, you're not alone I've been having this problem for the past three years and I'm still trying to figure out how to solve the it. It's very embarrasing especially if you have to ride elevators everyday.

    Tell you what, if you find a solution let us know and I'll do likewise. In the meantime, I'm going to follow FluteGirl7's advice.

    Ok, I'll check it out.

    I knew about that condition but I think it only involves the feet, hands, and the trunk.

    I'll let you know on my progress.
