Humid weather is a double whammy: Since there's more moisture in the air, it's harder for the sweat on your skin to evaporate, deterring the cooling process. And most people sweat more noticeably when exercising, in a hot place, or in a stressful, embarrassing, or uncomfortable situation. Despite what hot yoga devotees may believe, you sadly can't "sweat it out" after a big night out: Only about 5 percent of alcohol leaves your body through urine, breath, and sweat; 95 percent is metabolized by the liver. After skin changes ceased, we introduced Lidocaine patch into pain therapy which reduced the allodynia, but not the lancinating pain and hyperhidrosis. Bonus: The fitter you are, the more you sweat, which enables your body to keep on running, lifting, cycling—whatever you're into—for longer.
In certain cases, long-term pain and hyperhidrosis have been noted.
Appearance of herpes zoster during pregnancy is infrequent. We described hyperhidrosis and pain treatment using glycopirrolate cream in a pregnant woman with herpetic neuralgia.
A 32 year old woman, 21 weeks pregnant with second child, complained to her gynecologist of the appearance of a vesicular rash on the left half of the forehead that progressed toward her left eyelid, accompanied by lancinating pain, allodynia, hyperhidrosis and small edema, blepharitis and conjunctivitis.

Aciclovir therapy was administered mg orally five times daily for seven days. Pain therapy was initiated with amitriptilline.
We discontinued amitriptilline therapy after 10 days because of appearance of unwanted side effects. After skin changes ceased, we dating hyperhidrosis Lidocaine patch into pain therapy which reduced the allodynia, but not the lancinating pain and hyperhidrosis.
At that time we began using glycopirrolate cream which reduced pain intensity by After 48 hours of use, the pain dating hyperhidrosis disappeared. During the Glycopirrolate cream therapy, there were no side effects.
This is a first report to document that a topical Glycopirrolate cream has a beneficial effect in a patient with hyperhidrosis and herpetic neuralgia.
