From this study (18 hours ago):
Understandably many of these medications/conditions can cause sweating, but I am suffering from generalized sweating upper body chest and head more than under arms or hands or feet. Not localized. Does the androjel if applied to areas of the chest have a 'pore plugging' effect? I feel a film on my skin ~24 hours after application of androjel. When applied to other areas of body, abdomen, the sweating is more severe on chest and shoulders. Thyroid is under control, free testosterone is low normal, Vyvanse is morning only. Tramadol is 50mg qam and prn in late day not more that 3 tablets per day. Fluoxetine is 60mg qam. Not sure if I should consult my endocrinologist or dermatologis for this sweating issue? Is it drug (probably) or something else that is not easily diagnosed because of the drugs that are commonly associated with heavy sweating?
I am a medical professional. Not common man. I have understanding of neuro chemical process and feedback in the body. What questions should be asked so as to not have serious conditions overlooked by obvious issues that might mask.
