Help your teenager get rid of the sweat smell

Help je puber van de zweetlucht af
Excessive sweating is a common problem among teenagers and can be a source of embarrassment and social anxiety. Excessive sweating is also called hyperhidrosis and can be caused by several factors, including hormonal changes during puberty.

Important changes take place in the body during puberty. The sex hormones, such as testosterone and estrogen, are produced in greater quantities, leading to hair growth, breast development and menstruation. These also affect the sweat glands and can lead to excessive sweating.

It is important for your teenager to know that sweating is a common problem and that you can do several things to reduce it. One of the most effective ways is to use a good deodorant. Some people swear by the Odorex Dry or Nuud.

This is often not enough and it helps to also wear an anti-sweat T-shirt or anti-sweat top with armpit pads. This is invisible and comfortable. The sweat is collected in the pad under the armpit and because your armpit remains dry, you are less likely to suffer from the unpleasant sweat odor that is released. The nasty sweat odor is only released when it becomes damp under your armpit.

If your teenager really sweats a lot, a doctor can also prescribe medications that reduce sweat production or, for example, a stronger deodorant with aluminum chloride. Another treatment option is iontophoresis, which uses a mild electrical current to reduce sweat production.

It is important for teenagers to know that they are not alone in their battle against excessive sweating. There are many teenagers (and adults) who suffer from this problem. In many cases, once puberty is over, sweating also decreases. Be open with your child about the problem and let them talk to their doctor to get help and advice.
