  • I never was sweating a lot till I hit the menopause. Having the menopause behind me I now sweat directly when I’m active.


  • I would check with a GP as you may triggered by hormones. There are a lot of antiperspirants in the market now and they keep making items better quality etc….so maybe buy a really good antiperspirant and see how you go .


  • If this is unusual for you; I would suggest; you go and see your GP to discuss it further.


  • some people just run hotter. try exercise and get a physical but it could be related to menopause

    maybe it’s hotter in your part of aus!

    after about a week of exercise and sweating heaps, something in your brain kicks in and you start to sweat less


  • is this just recent for you, are you suffering stress etc? maybe this might be making you warmer than usual. I suggest you go to doctor just for a general check up and I’m sure doc will reassure all is okay :)


  • do you take any medications? im on an antidepressant that causes me bad sweats and i to wear a singlet all day and sleep on towels.


  • You should go to the doctor and be checked but for now id stop with spray deodorants (if you use them) and use roll ons helped me with sweat issues.


  • I think if it were me i would go to the doctors and ask for some blood test to be done.
    Good luck.


  • Off you pop to the GP. It could be anything from menopause to thyroid to a fever.


  • I never used to sweat at all and now my hair gets wet from it, I think it is hormonal. I have never asked a dr though


  • I sweat a bit too… see the doctor and see what they can do


  • some people just sweat more than others. I know I do so I just pace myself when I am doing chores.


  • i do when im nervous!


  • Lots of reasons why some people sweat a lot or more than others: Caffeine can make you sweat more, smoking, overweight, alcohol, the amount of sweat glands you have and there’s also a condition that makes for excessive sweating.

    Why don’t you have a chat to your GP, hope you find some relief.


  • You might have over active glands…talk to your dr about it if it bothers you
