Excessive Sweating Information

Do You Suffer From Excessive Sweating?

Do you find yourself having to deal with extremely sweaty palms, or an abnormal amount of wetness under your arms? If you feel you sweat more than the average person, you may be suffering from a condition called “Hyperhidrosis”.

What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is the term used to define perspiration in excess of the amount necessary to maintain your normal body temperature. The condition usually begins in people younger than 25 and lasts a lifetime unless it is treated.

Treating Excessive Sweating

If you are suffering from this condition, there are options for keeping it under control:

  • Make sure you are using ‘Antiperspirants’, which actually block the sweat ducts, and not just ‘Deodorants’, which are simply fragrances to hide scent.
  • Botox can virtually cease all sweating where it is injected within three days.
  • In extreme cases, a surgeon can clip the nerves to your sweat glands, but just take note that this often makes other areas just sweat more in a compensatory reaction.
