I've been on all kinds of medication and have recently decided to go it alone with nothing as nothing seemed to stop the hariness which is my main issue. Anyway, since coming off I've noticed that I'm sweating really badly, from my head is the worst problem to the point where it's dripping down my face and wetting my hair!! It's really getting me down, any ideas??

Cheers, is it just in the deoderant section?? Armpits nowhere near as bad as the head tho. Thinking of maybe going back on the tablets just to get rid of it!!

I may give it a go then - yeah, know what you mean abut all the other symptoms!! I've been on various tablets for 20 years, got to a point where I didn't know what was a symptom of PCOS or a side effect of the tablets. So decided to come off the lot!! Not too bad so far apart from putting weight on and the sweating

I have used Driclor and it rly does stop you from sweating, you can get it on prescription and if it is effective for you, ask your doctor to put 2 or 3 bottles on your prescription at a time which will save you money. however, after using the product for abvout 3 weeks, i must have put too much on one night and was up all night in agony, felt and looked like i had sunburn in my armpits, even phoned primary care helpline because i was so worried, so use it sparingly and it will work!!

another product that i was using whilst taking roaccutane was called triple dry - it was a deodrant stick bought from boots about £7 or £8 but really did work. its similar to the new sure maximum thats out now, but fragrance free and keeps you dryer for longer! :wink:

It didt help me so I had used all of sprays n I am not gonna invest into it because I have used the dricola n the sure maxium n there was another one boots was doing which didt help me at all yes I got the dricola from docs the anyway that is gonna go if they find a cure.
I was sweating wen I was skinny so now I am fat Iam still sweating. There's alot of things that started wen I was diagnosed with pcos.

my DH has been refered for 'botox injections' on the NHS for sweating...
He has tried most of the treatments on the NHS including sprays, creams, roll on's and talcs.

I am guessing he will have quite a wait but the results are said to be good.

Rather him than me though as I hate needles

yes to be honest he wasnt expecting the doctor to offer anything else so he was surprised when the doctor said that the botox injections have just become available recently on the NHS in our area

I am not sure what the procedure is, I am guessing he will need to have a consultation first before he actually gets the treatment

It might be worth asking your doctor about it?

Top tip on the Driclor front. Rub some bicarbonate of soda under your arms before you apply it. I read this in a magazine, and while it sounds bonkers it totally stops the stinging!
