Why would I sweat more from one armpit than the other?

Asked by tinyfaery (41094points) February 19th, 2010

That’s pretty much it.

I am sweating from one armpit and the other one is dry.

Do you wear deodorant/antiperspirant? If so, did you apply an even amount to both? If so, was one wetter than the other pre-application?

Yes. Yes. No.

Did you get out of the shower and then put it on?

This happens to me everyday, and it’s always the same armpit. I guess righty is just a bit more… leaky.

For me it’s my left.

I wait about 10 minutes after a shower to put it on.

This is a very strange question!

I’m not a sweat…er… *ahem, but I do find this happening to me, particularly when my body is under heavy stress (lifting weights, hard labor, running, etc).

Nothing too bothersome, but otherwise peculiar.

Please let me know if you discover the answer to this great mystery.

Interesting question. I don’t have an answer, sorry. I’m curious to see if someone finds some info on that, though.

Man this happens to me every single day. It gets me so mad. I have used every kind of anti-perspirant and its all the same. Every day my left armpit sweats no matter what, and my right doesnt. Its so embarassing i hate it.
