Consultant Dermatologist at The Private Clinic of Harley Street, Noor Almaani, provides an insight into how making a few simple lifestyle changes could ease the problem:

1. Caffeine intake and spices should be reduced as these foods can activate neurotransmitters, called acetylcholine which can stimulate your sweat glands.

2. Prescription-strength antiperspirant, such as those containing aluminium chloride like Driclor, can be helpful.

3. People prone to sweating should try to wear loose, stain resistant and breathable clothes.

4. Some medications can lead to increased sweating, such as steroids, antidepressants, nicotinamide (Vitamin B3) and opioids, and so, people should consult their GPs.

5. If antiperspirants aren't working people can ask their doctors about medical treatments, such as Botox injections, which can banish excessive sweating for up to a year.

6. Exercise or hot showers should be avoided.

7. Excess fat can cause people to sweat more, so keeping one's weight down through exercise can really help.
