This is bulls...! I have had hyperhidrosis since birth and it does not have an odor! Also there is nothing you can do for it except surgery which I have had and that only works on the hands and transfers the sweat to the upper torso. 60 yrs I've delt with this and have seen numerous drs. Don't blow smoke !
Hand lotion contributes to hand sweat? That makes a lot of sense, seeing as how lotion is a moisturizer. I am glad that I don't use lotion other than sun screen. Does sun screen count?
