Excessive Sweating

Unexplained excessive sweating isn't as uncommon as you may think. Unlike normal sweating – which we experience after exercise or in hot weather – excessive sweating occurs spontaneously, regardless of whether the body needs to cool down or not.

Excessive Sweating can be helped with:

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterised by excessive sweating in response to factors other than heat. The most commonly affected areas are:

  • Armpits – axillary hyperhidrosis;
  • Hands – palmar hyperhidrosis;
  • Feet – plantar hyperhidrosis; and
  • Face – craniofacial hyperhidrosis

Symptoms of Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis is a very under-diagnosed condition as the majority of individuals affected by it never seek medical advice or treatment. Women are reported to be more affected by this condition than men. It is of no danger to health; however, it may carry implications for quality of life and psychosocial well-being. Those with axillary hyperhidrosis appear to be particularly affected in terms of quality of life, followed by those with palmar hyperhidrosis.
