Do you experience excessive sweating in your armpits, hands or feet, especially when you are anxious or stressed? Don’t worry, you are among the thousands of people in the world who suffer from the problem of excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common sweat gland disorder that causes a lot of embarrassment and makes you uncomfortable. In this condition the sweat glands overact. This overactivity causes excessive sweating, at places and times where other people don’t sweat.
There could be so much sweating that it drips off from the hands or soaks through the clothes. This could disrupt your normal daily routine and can even cause embarrassment and social anxiety.
The most commonly used treatment for excessive sweating in Melbourne is prescription antiperspirants. However, they may not always be effective and the patient may need to try different therapies or medications to bring down the excessive sweating.
Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis
Most people experience sweating when they exert themselves or exercise, are under stress or anxious, or are present in hot conditions. But the sweating experienced by a person with hyperhidrosis is much greater than the normal sweating.
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating usually impacts the underarms, hands, feet, or face and causes a minimum of one such incident per week, during the daytime. This type of sweating generally happens on both sides of your body.
Excessive sweating can sometimes be a symptom of a serious condition. If excessive sweating is accompanied by nausea, chest pain or lightheadedness, you need to seek immediate medical assistance to treat the condition.
