Excessive Sweating

Sweating is a normal and natural process which helps to regulate a person’s body temperature. Regular sweating is an imperative physical process; yet a surplus or deficit of sweat can be extremely detrimental to one’s health. The intensity of sweating may differ due to numerous reasons; for instance an increase in temperature during the hot season, sweat- inducing moments like sports, emotions or stress, types of food consumed, medications or ill health and in some cases even genetic origins.  Nevertheless, excessive sweating in normal conditions is a major concern for many nowadays, especially as it is rather psychologically harmful than being physically harmful.

The exact medical term used for the condition of excessive sweating is “Hyperhidrosis”. In this case, one has to deal with sweaty hands, feet, and underarms, often causing a foul smell. It can have an effect on both men and women alike, and generally begins at some point in puberty and sadly, can last for a lifetime. In some extreme circumstances of hyperhidrosis, sweat practically dribbles from the hands.

Normally, hyperhidrosis may well be caused involuntarily or without any ill feeling. According to WEBMD (2017), this is the case for approximately 1% to 3% of UK residents who are affected by this condition; however the exact occurrence is still unknown. This excessive sweating disorder may be very embarrassing for many people, who have to bear the condemnation of others, especially in various instances such as, in air-conditioned conference rooms, across a table, in elevators and in other public places. Often, the sufferers feel cut off, lonesome or even dread of social interaction due to the severe complexes they experience due to their upsetting situation.
