Sweating is embarrassing and sweating like a tap is even more embarrassing. The sweat patch in your underarms can give you a moment worth cringing for rest of your life.
Some people give argument that sweating is a natural process and there is absolutely no need to feel embarrass about it. By that argument it should be fine to fart in public.
How much you sweat depends upon many things, like genetics, health condition, environment etc. Most of these things are difficult to change.
But, thanks to the technology and research of many years, we have tools that are very effective when it comes to sweat protection, which is deodorant.

You can take shower or exercise, nothing will affect its effectiveness. It basically contains a good amount of aluminium in it, which block the sweat pore and prevents sweating.
