Overview Hyperhidrosis is a common condition where a person sweats excessively, and much more than the body needs in order to regulate its temperature. Excessive sweating doesn’t usually pose a serious threat to a person’s health, but it can be embarrassing and distressing. The inconvenience of it can also have a negative impact on your quality of life. There is no set way of defining excessive sweating, but if sweating is interfering with your daily life and normal activities, you may have hyperhidrosis. Many people with the condition are too embarrassed to seek medical help or believe that nothing can be done to improve their symptoms. However, there is help available at The Apsaras Aesthetic Clinic.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
Types of hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis can either:
- only affect certain parts of the body, most commonly the armpits, hands, feet or face; this is known as focal hyperhidrosis
- affect the entire body, known as generalised hyperhidrosis
Most cases of generalised hyperhidrosis have an underlying cause, such as:
- it can be a side effect of taking medication
- it can be related to another condition, such as an overactive thyroid gland.
Doctors may refer to this as secondary hyperhidrosis. Most cases of focal hyperhidrosis have no obvious cause, although many experts believe that problems with the nervous system may be responsible. Doctors sometimes refer to this as primary hyperhidrosis.
