Hyperdrosis Excessive Sweating


Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating, a common disorder that can produces great discomfort and unhappiness.

There is no such thing as a “normal level of sweating”, but people with hyperhidrosis do sweat too much with little or no exertion. Every day work or leisure activities can become nearly impossible. Excessive sweating primarily affects the underarm area, palms and feet, and is often accompanied by unpleasant body odour.

Hyperhidrosis often leads to embarrassment and social isolation, with people investing large amounts of money in short-term solutions, which fail to stop underarm sweat.

Is hyperhidrosis dangerous?

Excessive sweating is not dangerous or harmful. However, it can have a severe impact on people’s self-confidence and emotional wellbeing.

This often involves avoiding physical contact, becoming socially withdrawn and spending a substantial amount of time controlling the noticeable signs of heavy sweating (showering, changing clothes, etc.).

Dealing with excessive sweating also comes at costs. People with hyperhidrosis tend to spend a lot of money in medicines, prescription strength deodorants and other short-term solutions, which cannot guarantees long-term results.

Excessive sweating can irritate the skin where sweat glands are located. Some people also find difficulties performing physical activities that involve gripping (i.e. turning a car steering wheel).

How many people have hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is relatively common, and affects approximately 3% of the UK population.

Is hyperhidrosis hereditary?

The cause of excessive sweating is unknown. However, about a third of patients have a relative who also suffers from hyperhidrosis, which could indicate a genetic cause.

Excessive sweating can also be triggered by other problems, including being overweight, using certain medication, an underlying condition (i.e. thyroid disorder) or nerves caused by stressful situations (i.e. public speaking).
