Q: I have a problem of sweating long after my post-workout shower. I know this is normal (right?), but is there anything I can do to stop or curb that? – Sean T., Washington, D.C.
A: Relax, Sean. Reach for a frosty beverage. David Nielson, M.D., a specialist in hyperhidrosis (the actual medical term for excessive sweating), says a cool drink with ice should help you cool down faster. We’re not talking about a humble shot of chilly liquid, though. “It needs to be at least 20–32 ounces,” Nielson says, “so that enough of the cool liquid is in the stomach to help cool the core.”
