Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that is characterized by excessive sweating; people with hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating in areas like the palms, soles, face, and armpits. It is believed to be caused by overactive sweat glands and typically starts during the teen or early adulthood years. This condition affects millions of people around the world and can have a significant effect on their daily lives.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that is characterized by excessive or profuse sweating, oftentimes without reason. It is more than just sweating in response to physical activity or hot temperatures, as the sweating may be constant and occur even in comfortable temperatures. This overproduction of sweat can occur in any part of the body, but most commonly affects the hands, feet, armpits and forehead. There are several things that can trigger hyperhidrosis, including:
– Certain medications, including central nervous system stimulants and antidepressants
– Vitamin or mineral supplements like zinc
– Temperature changes, especially humid weather
However, hyperhidrosis may occur in unusual situations, like periods of low activity in a cool environment, or it may have no triggers at all.
There are many treatment options for hyperhidrosis, some of which include specialized antiperspirants, anticholinergic drugs, and even surgery. However, one of the most popular and trusted treatments for this condition is Botox. Commonly used in aesthetics, Botox was first used medically, to treat certain conditions. Among the list of conditions that Botox can treat is hyperhidrosis, as it temporarily disables the nerves from transmitting signals.
We all sweat every day; it is the body’s natural way of regulating internal temperatures. When we are active and working our bodies, we sweat a lot more, especially if we are in a hot environment. Even just going for a walk on a hot, humid day can make you sweat profusely. But for people with hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating does not always have an obvious cause. Symptoms of hyperhidrosis include:
– Excessive sweating that has been ongoing for at least six months without an apparent reason
– Sweat that occurs on both sides of the body in roughly the same amount (such as the armpits, hands, and feet)
– Incidents of excessive sweating at least once a week, or several times a month
– Sweating that interferes with your daily activities (such as relationships, work or family)
– Excessive sweating that began before the age of 25 years old
– Not sweating in your sleep
– A family history of hyperhidrosis
These symptoms may be indicative of primary focal hyperhidrosis, but a diagnosis can only be formed by a qualified medical professional.
The different types of hyperhidrosis include:
– Primary focal hyperhidrosis (no known cause, affecting a localized area such as the armpits, hands, or feet)
– Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis (caused by an underlying condition, causing sweating across the entire body, not localized to a specific area)
If hyperhidrosis is left untreated, it can result in a number of different complications. While these complications are not considered medically severe, they can cause psychological distress. Untreated hyperhidrosis can cause:
Emotional and Social Distress: Social situations can be embarrassing for people with excessive sweating, which may cause them to avoid these situations as much as possible.
Fungal Skin Infections: Excessively sweaty skin is more prone to skin infections than normal skin because fungi thrive in a moist environment.
Bacterial Infections: In addition to fungal infections, heavy sweating can also lead to an increased risk of bacterial and viral skin infections.
Bromhidrosis: When bacteria come into contact with sweat, it creates a foul odor from the body, known as bromhidrosis.
