Have Had Sweat Issues my Whole Life! - Portland, OR

As far back as I can remember I have always had...

As far back as I can remember I have always had sweaty underarms. When I was in middle school, I remember getting home and taking off my t-shirt and seeing a sweat ring about 1 foot wide around each arm pit. I wouldn’t even have to do anything to cause the massive sweating. I tried to wear larger shirts or even undershirts to try and hide the wet stains that would happen everyday. I remember talking to a doctor about this and he said I have a condition called Hyperhidrosis. He gave me a prescription for some topical medication. It didn’t work. I felt hopeless and learned to deal with the condition, but trying to deal with it took a toll me. I never felt confident to hold up my arms and I couldn’t buy cloths that fit correctly in fear my sweat would show through. My shirts wouldn’t last longer than 6 months because they would become stained. It wasn’t until recently that I felt I couldn’t take it anymore. Now in my 30’s, and with a job where I need to dress in button up shirts, I came across a solution. No not the underarm pads for dress shirts, not medications, not even all black style polo shirts that I’ve warn for the past 8 years. I found miraDry. My life has changed! That one quick office visit to Thrive Portland is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I had no clue that a simple 45-minute session with the doctor and miraDry technician would be this life changing. I was skeptical before and even after the treatment that it might not work for me since I have had Hyperhidrosis my entire life. But it did work! I feel amazing and am still on cloud nine! My wife and I have tossed my old polos and every black shirt I owned out and have been buying new clothes I want to wear. Better yet, I have not had a single drop of sweat appear under my arms. I don’t even wear deodorant anymore. I am confident and it’s like I’ve never had an issue. I would encourage anyone who wants to end underarm sweating to have miraDry done. I cannot stress enough that this is the perfect solution to fix underarm sweating. Thank you Dr. Maddox and the rest of the team at Thrive Portland. You changed my life for the better and made me feel comfortable and welcome through my entire visit.
