Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, is a relatively common condition that sees sufferers sweating excessively. This excessive sweating is triggered in unusual circumstances, for example, during cold weather or when the sufferer is completely still, and can greatly impact sufferers lives. Hyperhidrosis can affect the whole body or just certain areas.
What causes Excessive Sweating?
Excessive sweating that has no underlying medical cause; usually begins in childhood or adolescence; perspiration tends to occur on feet, hands, face, head, and underarms.
Excessive sweating caused by an underlying medical problem or as a side effect of medication; generally starts in adulthood; may occur all over or in certain areas of the body.
Treating Excessive Sweating
There are a number of things you can do to relieve the symptoms of excessive sweating, such as wearing light, loose clothes and avoiding things that could make perspiration worse such as excessive alcohol or spicy foods.
However, the most effective way to prevent excessive sweating completely is through professional treatments. Botox injections are a popular, quick and pain-free treatment; these block the nerves that stimulate your sweat glands, preventing the overproduction of sweat. This is a particularly good option if you suffer from excessive sweating in certain areas of the body.
