Hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating even when you’re not exercising or overheated, can be difficult to live with. The sweat can be so profuse that you are forced to change shirts throughout the day. In can be very disruptive to daily life and impact your quality of life, your self-esteem, and your self-confidence.
Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis
The primary symptom of hyperhidrosis is profuse sweating. While it’s normal to sweat when you’re hot, nervous, or exercising, people with hyperhidrosis sweat profusely even when those conditions are not present. It can affect more than just the underarm; people with the condition can experience extreme sweatiness on their face, hands, and feet as well. If you experience these symptoms regularly, you should make an appointment with your physician, because serious complications, including skin infections, can occur.
The good news is that there are treatments for the condition, so you do not have to continue to suffer or avoid social situations that might otherwise be embarrassing or uncomfortable for you. Treatment options vary depending on the type and severity of the condition, but new research is being conducted all the time to find new and better treatments. Current treatment options include prescription deodorants and creams that can help some people who suffer from hyperhidrosis; some medicines that are used for depression can also help reduce sweating. In more severe cases, Botox® injections can be used to help minimize sweating.
