Sweating is a natural process that we all experience. Our body temperature is regulated but, when it causes embarrassment due to staining, sweaty palms and dampened clothing, excessive sweating can become burden to our self-esteem and confidence.
Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. It is generally localized to areas such as the armpits, palms, soles of the feet and face or scalp. Bouts of hyperhidrosis can be triggered by fear and anxiety, spicy food, exercise, hot weather and fever. Beyond the social stigma and distress that excessive sweating can cause, dermatitis can erupt due to chafing and frequent hand washing.
Excessive sweating is commonly caused by overactivity of the body’s temperature control centre of the brain (the hypothalamus) and the central nervous system’s control of sweat glands. Neurological and anxiety disorders have also been linked to hyperhidrosis.
Traditional solutions include medical-grade antiperspirants and even surgical sweat gland removal.
