Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition wherein a person sweats even in the absence of physical activity. It affects 2.8% of all individuals. Left untreated, it can cause skin to peel or become infected from being unable to dry properly.

 
 

Who Are At Risk?

Hyperhidrosis is usually hereditary. However, it may also occur in people with underlying conditions such as a thyroid problem, diabetes, or an infection. It is also more common in people experiencing weight problems.

  • Fair complexion, as the absence of the skin pigment melanin means less protection from UV radiation

  • History of sunburns, whether in childhood or adulthood

  • Exposure to radiation, whether from the sun (especially without sunblock), from treatments of previous skin conditions such as eczema, or from a tanning lamp or bed

  • History of skin cancer, whether familial or personal

  • A weakened immune system

 
 
 
 

What Are the Types?

There are two kinds of excessive sweating, classified as primary and secondary.

  • Primary (focal) hyperhidrosis affects the hands, underarms, face, and feet. Sweating may be triggered without an apparent reason.

  • Secondary (general) hyperhidrosis affects the whole body, or a larger part of it. It can be caused by excessive heat or a medical condition.

 
 
 
 

What You Can Do

Remedies for hyperhidrosis include antiperspirants, oral medication, and iontophoresis. Another suitable and longer-lasting treatment which Skin MD offers is the Botox injection. This procedure is mostly known for its anti-aging effects, but it also paralyzes sweat glands’ nerves and reduces the amount of sweat your skin produces. As a result, it saves you the hassle of applying anything or worrying about underarm stains and body odor. The benefits of a Botox injection can also last up to 6 months.
