Excess Sweating - Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating beyond what is necessary for regulating body temperature. Individuals with hyperhidrosis may experience sweating excessively even when at rest, in cool temperatures, or at unexpected times.

Sweat, produced by eccrine glands in the skin, serves the purpose of regulating body temperature by evaporating from the skin's surface. However, in cases of hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands are overactive, leading to an excessive production of sweat.

Hyperhidrosis can significantly impact an individual's quality of life, causing discomfort, embarrassment, and social anxiety. It can affect various parts of the body, including the hands, feet, underarms, face, and groin area.

Complications of Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating can create an environment conducive to the growth of bacteria and fungi on the skin, increasing the risk of skin infections such as bacterial folliculitis, intertrigo, or fungal infections like athlete's foot or jock itch.

Skin Changes: Prolonged exposure to moisture from excessive sweating can lead to various skin changes, including paleness, discoloration, maceration (softening of the skin due to excessive moisture), cracks, or wrinkles. These changes may cause discomfort and increase the risk of skin infections.

Impact on Mental Health: Hyperhidrosis can have significant psychological and social impacts. Individuals may feel embarrassed, self-conscious, or anxious about their sweating, leading them to alter their daily routines or avoid social situations to hide their symptoms. This can negatively impact self-esteem, relationships, and overall quality of life.
