Beware If You Sweat Too Much for No Reasons, Here are the Symptoms
If you sweat all the time, you might have Hyperhidrosis
Everything you need to know about excessive sweating and how to treat it
Have you ever broken out in a sweat on the coldest day of the year? Do you constantly have sweaty palms? Have you resigned to a life of loose t-shirts and singlets for fear you’ll have sweat patches if you wear anything that clings to your body?
Sweating is natural. It’s a necessary function of our body. When your body overheats, your nervous system stimulates your sweat glands to produce fluid that cools your body down to regulate your temperature. However, for some us, this occurs more than needed – whether it’s summer, winter, hot or cold.
What is hyperhidrosis?
If you find that you excessively sweat, you may be suffering from a condition known as hyperhidrosis. And unfortunately it’s not temporary.
It can be generalised, causing you to excessively sweat all over your body, or it can be localised, so you only excessively sweat from specific parts of your body like your feet, palms, underarms or facial area. It can also be classified by onset, either congenital (present at birth) or acquired (beginning later in life).

The cause of hyperhidrosis? An overactive sympathetic nervous system. Anxiety or excitement can exacerbate the symptoms, which can become a vicious cycle, as some you might become nervous about sweating, which triggers the sweating and so on. Certain spicy foods, alcohol and even pregnancy can trigger symptoms too.
But you’re not alone.
