that's not cool. to any of the posters above me. I see where she's coming from, I have over active sweat glands, and when I get nervous, I sweat a lot. it sucks having to pick clothes based on how much sweat will show. and I've tried everything, prescription deodorant, sweat pads, so don't be so rude and inconsiderate.

I thought this said her dad came to pick her up. Incest? I was confused and disgusted till I re-read. Actually I'm still confused and disgusted. Was the date picking you up from home? Didn't you have any anti-perspirant there? Or if you are extra worried about wet spots, why not just take the shirt off until the last minute? Anyway, let him think you stuff your bra. It's much better than the truth.

It doesn't work well enough for everyone. For some people, sweating is a problem that can't be solved by using anti-perspirant or deodorant. But there are special armpit-pads that you can stick in your clothes. If your stick them in a tight-fitting t-shirt and then wear a normal-fitting shirt over it, they're not noticable. And OP could get her armpits botoxed but that's pretty expensive.

I actually never had a problem with wet marks on my shirt until last year. I couldn't figure out why it started happening so suddenly until, frustrated, I bought a completely different brand of antiperspirant than what I had normally used. Then the problem stopped. I dunno if my body had built up some sort of resistance to my regular antipersperant but maybe you should try a new type, OP

#8- i dont mean to be inconsiderate, but she doesnt seem to be handling the problem well.. how will tissue be more effective than deodorant in protecting her from excessive sweating? At least deodorant will do something...

#18.. she probably DOES wear deodorant/antiperspirant as well.. but she might still sweat through that. SO.. she puts tissue under her pits to soak up any sweat she produces before she goes out... so she's not already sweaty when she leaves. just because she does that with the tissue doesn't mean she doesn't wear any deodorant you know.. geeeeeez.

#24- good point, but another question is what was she gonna do when she gets physical without the tissue there, as she said she forgot to remove them? my point is, whether she uses deodorant or not, tissue is not a practical solution for over-sweating, and this is actually proven by this FML, if it is real...

Thankyou #8 all these ppl are so inconsiderate that there actually is a condition where you always sweat, I'd know I have it, I wear prescription grade deodorant, deodorant to stop the smell and nice smelling spray to hide the smell and sweat pads in stressful situations, yet all pf them don't help, insulting someone about this is so cruel because I have the lowest self esteem about it and when I think about sweating it makes it worse, look it up people before u start just saying were dirty when most of us do really try!!!

Addressing everyone that is saying tissues aren't a reasonable solution- We (I've had this problem too) cant control this, and I personally have tried everything. You put on the deodorant but that doesn't stop it, you try to change your diet from foods that may cause you sweat, you do almost everything to make it stop but it doesn't. So when it comes down to it, that is a simple and easy solution as long as you can keep them out of sight. And I'll admit it's not the perfect solution, but sometimes it feels like the only option.

my suggestion? shower... a lot. then use deodorant. one thing that also helps-don't know if this applies-shave daily. if none of that helps, see a doctor. and of that doesn't help? sorry. looks like you're doomed to a nasty frequent armpit drip.

Showering a lot reduces the smell. Deodorant doesn't work, you need antiperspirant. However, antiperspirant doesn't work for people who sweat a lot. And shaving daily won't help. But they can get medical deodorant or get botox. There are also surgeries that remove the sweat glands.
