I sweat a lot when I get nervous, specifically on my foreh. I have an important job interview in a couple day. How can I prevent myself from sweating.?

Wear a scarf: Two days is too short to behaviorally deal with your sweating as you are already focusing on the sweating before the interview.

Use a mild soap and put a thin layer of any antibiotic ointment on it (just don't be tempted to use that ointment for anything else, at least for a while!). Then think of switching to a chamois cloth--or waiting for a real vagina. ...Read more
