What is Excessive Sweating?
Excessive sweating, also commonly referred to as hyperhidrosis, is exactly what it sounds like. This condition causes patients to sweat profusely, regardless of the weather or the clothing they wear. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is most prevalent around the hands, feet, face, head, and underarms, however, it can also affect less common areas to sweat on the body including the back, chest, belly, and legs. While studies have only found that less than five percent of the population has hyperhidrosis, many medical professionals believe it’s more common than we think. If you find that your excessive sweating is interfering with your life and are looking for a way to control it, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with our professional medical team at your earliest convenience.
What Causes Excessive Sweating?
There could be a variety of factors causing your hyperhidrosis and excessive sweating. Some patients may develop hyperhidrosis as a side effect of their prescription medications, especially if they’re taking an antidepressant. Other patients may find their hyperhidrosis is caused by a secondary health condition including a gland disorder, lung disease, spinal cord injury, or more. That being said, some patients simply have overactive sweat glands that don’t quite regulate themselves on their own. If you find that your excessive sweating is persisting following a series of lifestyle changes, Dr. Jennifer Armstrong’s medical team will be more than happy to help you reduce your sweating with a personalized treatment plan.
