Yes, that's me...Mr. Hot and Sweaty.
But seriously, I've always had a problem of sweating a lot at any temp above 75 degrees when I'm outside doing some work or enjoying a day at the amusement park with the kids or whatever. Once I start sweating for the day it is tough for me to stop. Its as if the sweat blocks my pores and it just makes it hard for my body to breathe. Don't know the scientific ins and outs of it, but that's what it seems like anyway. I've looked it up before and I probably have hyperhidrosis. I don't stink and my anti-p doesn't wear off. I just sweat a lot from that areas that don't have the anti-p on.
I figure this is a good place to ask this question because many of the people here were probably tent campers during the summer before they were spoiled by the AC upgrade.
So what can I do to keep cool? We plan on doing a ton of camping this summer and that means that I will have much more outdoor activities than normal. It really takes the energy out of me. I've heard that cashews and almonds help. Has anyone heard this? Also if I take a drink of something really cold and kind of keep in in my mouth for about 15 seconds or so then that also helps. Kinda like the brain freeze ice cream thing...seems to fool my system into thinking it is cold and shuts down most of the sweating, at least for a few minutes.
I know you aren't docs here (or maybe some of you are/were) but I know since FRF has mostly outdoor-oriented members you would probably have some great suggestions.
