Tomorrow is my Dr Hauptman appointment.
It fills me with excitement!
I’m going to find out if there’s anything,
We can do about my sweating!
I’m sick of always feeling wet!
How gross can you get?
I can’t wear makeup on my face,
It drips away, leaving a disgrace!
The back of my shirt always feels wet and gross,
That’s one of the things I hate the most!
On hot days it gets so bad,
It’s starting to make me really mad!
I need to shower all the time,
Using up water like a crime!
It’s from my pills, my Dr said.
There’s something I can take, this is what I read:
(Taken from the International Hyperhidrosis Society’s website)
There are a number of oral (taken by mouth) prescription medications that may be used to manage certain types of excessive sweating. The medications work in a variety of ways to systemically (in your body’s whole “system”) limit sweating. They do this by helping to prevent the stimulation of sweat glands and thus decreasing overall sweating.
Oral hyperhidrosis medications are best suited for patients with certain types of excessive sweating such as excessive facial sweating (cranio-facial hyperhidrosis), generalized hyperhidrosis, and those who have not had success using other therapies such as clinical strength antiperspirants, iontophoresis, Botox, or a customized combination of these. People who have compensatory sweating from ETS surgery, sweat over a large body area (such as the back or chest), need temporary relief from sweating every once in a while for a special event (such as a performance or presentation), or have excessive sweating secondary to a medication or medical condition may also find success with oral medications.
The most commonly used medications for managing excessive sweating are anticholinergics. These include medicines such as glycopyrrolate, oxybutynin, benztropine, propantheline, and others.
Tomorrow I’m going to ask him about these meds.
It even talks about sweating as a result of meds!
I’m tired of lying waking up soaked!
This whole sweating issue has me choked.
He’s mentioned a solution in the past,
I’m sure he’ll give it to me if I just ask!
That’s why I’m so happy I’ll be seeing him,
Because this sweating is super grim.
To be able to wear makeup again would be nice.
Now I try, but I have to think twice.
Even mascara ends up making a mess!
Who knew sweating everywhere could cause such stress?
Night All! 💤😴
