MOVING ALONG SLOWLY, COURT. THANK YOU, DAVE. BACK TO YOU. SWEATING IS A PROBLEM WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE. THAT’S RIGHT. TALKING ABOUT HOW BAD SOME INGREDIENTS IN DEODE — DEODORANT CAN BE, BUT WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO PROTECT YOURSELF? WE CAN HELP YOU THROUGH THE RATHER STINKY SITUATION. I WAVED AT HER LINING I — LIKE I WAS A T-REX BECAUSE I WAS SO CONSCIOUS ABOUT IT. SO WHAT IS THIS PROBLEM? YOUR GLANDS ARE PUMPING OUT SWEAT EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE NOT SWEATING. SOME PEOPLE HAVE A CONDITION WHERE YOU ARE SWEATING BEYOND WHAT IS NORMAL. WHAT GENERATES IT? YOUR DIET? IS IT HEREDITARY? IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET A PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS. IT CAN BE MEDICATION, MEDICAL CONSCIOUS BUT YOU CAN JUST BE IN OVER DRIVE, AND IT — RIGHT. SO. PEOPLE WHO HAVE HYPER HYDROSIS WILL SWEAT BUT MORE THAN MOST PEOPLE. IS DEODORANT EVEN EFFECTIVE? USUALLY NOT. SO ANTI-PERSPIRANT IS FOR SWEAT. RIGHT? RIGHT, AND PEOPLE WITH PRIMARY HYPERHYDROSIS, WE FIND THE PRODUCTS AT THE GROCERY STORE ARE NOT ENOUGH. WILL THIS COME AND GO? ABSOLUTELY. IT CAN COME AND GO, AND SITUATIONS WILL TRIGGER IT. SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST SWEATING ALL DAY LONG. IT’S SOCIALLY DISTRESSING. HOW DO YOU TREAT IT? WE HAVE TOPICAL MEDICATIONS AND EARLY ON MEDICATIONS. — ORAL MEDICATIONS, AND BOTOX CAN LAST FROM 7 TO 8 MONTHS. WE HAVE MICROWAVE TECHNOLOGY TO KILL THE SWEAT GLANDS, AND OVER THE COUNTER DEVICES THAT PEOPLE CAN DO. IT’S MOSTLY FOR PALMS, AND THEN SURGERY. THAT’S A LITTLE MORE — DON’T WE NEED TO SWEAT? WE DO. YOU WILL SWEAT. THAT’S ONE OF THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE MEDICATIONS THAT WE OFFER. YOU CAN START SWEATING IN AREAS WHERE YOU DIDN’T NORMALLY HAVE THIS PROBLEM BUT YOU DON’T NEED TO SWEAT THAT MUCH. OKAY. THIS IS FASCINATING. I DIDN’T REALIZE WE WERE GOING TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION. LET ME ASK YOU THIS, DR. SWEAT, WHICH IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO CALL YOU. WHEN YOU SWEAT, WORKING OUT, YOU HAVE A CERTAIN SMELL AND A STRESS SWEAT HAS A DIFFERENT SMELL. WHY IS IT DIFFERENT? THERE IS A MEDICAL CONDITION WHERE PEOPLE SWEAT, THE VOLUME OF SWEAT AND IT’S LIKE THE HUMAN PHEROMONES. IT MIGHT BE PERCEPTION ALSO. PEOPLE MAY THINK THAT A CERTAIN SWEAT SMELLS A CERTAIN WAY. SO IT’S A MYTH. IT DOESN’T REALLY? NOT REALLY. ALL SWEAT HAS SOME DEGREE OF ODOR, AND SOME ETHNIC GROUPS MORE THAN OTHERS, BUT IT’S NOT NECESSARILY SITUATIONAL AS IT MAY BE PERCEIVED. SO IF YOU ARE SWEATING A LOT, YOU CAN ASK YOUR DOCTOR. YEAH. THERE ARE MANY TREATMENTS OUT THERE. I THINK THAT BOTOX IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE ON A REGULAR BASIS. IT CAN BE LIFE ALTERING. IT’S INJECTED INTO THE GLANDS IN THE ARMPIT? YEAH. IT BASICALLY STOPS THE DISEMANATION OF THE SWEAT GLANDS. SO IF YOU FIND YOURSELF SUFFERING, TELL YOUR DOCTOR TO GET A REFERRAL. YOU DON’T HAVE TO PILE ON THE DEODORANT. I WON’T WAVE LIKE A T-REX.
