Hi Chris!

I have a sweating problem, I sweat a lot.  What can I get to stop it or reduce it?

What do you think?

Has this been the case your entire life, or is it a recent change?

If you're really sweating excessively, it's called Diaphoresis and there are treatments like anticholinergics or sympathectomies, though they are quite drastic.
However, if it's a recent change, there's probably an underlying cause that needs to be looked at and you better consult your GP.

Like farting in a lift, that response is wrong on many levels.
