Sweaty Pits--they say I'm not alone.

"Excessive sweating from your armpits is a condition called Axillary Hyperhidrosis. It is a condition that affects thousands of people causing them annoyance and embarrassment."

Sigh. It's true. Within minutes of putting on my shirt this morning (a light green, linen button up) I pitted it out, as it were.

True, I was rushing around getting ready while also cleaning the apartment before work. What is not true, however, is that any other part of me was sweating.


So, while I continued to get ready, I'm not ashamed to admit that I put some tissue under each arm so that I could at least LEAVE the house without sweaty pit marks (though they would be certain to return quickly anyhow).

Off I went to go to work.

As I hopped in my car, a tissue (which I had forgotten was there) fell out.


Had this happened in public, I would have had to justify my fallen white tissue (a symbol of my surrender to my armpit affliction) with one of the two following choices:

1. Yes, I'm almost 26 and I still stuff my bra.

2. I'm a sweaty man-woman who perspires on the regular, even when not moving.

Ahhh... a little insight in to Montastic's morning.

You're welcome.

Just read your post... I know all too well how you feel! If this bothers you on a regular basis, I hope you know there are many steps you can take to make that sweating easier to deal with: you can use dress shields that are disposable, shields that are washable and snap onto a bra strap, camisoles that have dress shields, and more. You also can try stronger hyperhidrosis level antiperspirants! I explain all of those options and much more on my website, You don't have to resort to tissues! :) Best of luck to you!
