What is Excess Sweating?

Excess sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition characterised by abnormal, excessive sweating that isn’t necessarily related to heat or exercise. Hyperhidrosis can significantly disrupt daily activities and cause social anxiety or discomfort. This condition can affect specific areas such as the underarms, palms, soles, or even the entire body, leading to continuous and often uncontrollable sweating.

What Causes Excess Sweating?

Hyperhidrosis can be primary or secondary. Primary hyperhidrosis has no discernible medical cause, but it is believed to be linked to overactivity in the sympathetic nervous system, explicitly affecting glands responsible for sweat. Secondary hyperhidrosis, on the other hand, can be attributed to various medical conditions such as diabetes, thyroid problems, and certain infections, or it may be induced by medications.

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of excess sweating include:

  • Visible excessive sweating that may soak through clothing
  • Sweating that disrupts normal daily activities
  • Skin problems, including infections
  • Social withdrawal and emotional distress due to self-consciousness
  • Cold and clammy hands

Treatment for Sweating at Pulse Light Clinic

At Pulse Light Clinic, we understand the challenges posed by hyperhidrosis and offer a tailored treatment to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life:

  • Injectables: These injections temporarily block the nerves that cause sweating. This treatment is particularly effective for sweating in the underarms, hands, feet, and face.

Common Questions for Excess Sweating Condition

Can excessive sweating be a sign of something serious?

Excessive sweating can sometimes indicate underlying health issues, such as thyroid problems, diabetes, or infection. If your sweating is sudden, severe, or accompanied by other symptoms like weight loss, fever, or chest pain, it's essential to seek medical advice to rule out any severe conditions.

What dietary changes can help reduce excessive sweating?

Diet plays a crucial role in managing hyperhidrosis. Avoiding caffeine, spicy foods, and alcohol can help reduce sweating. Staying hydrated with water, fruits, and vegetables that have high water content can also help maintain body temperature and reduce sweat.

Is hyperhidrosis a common condition?

Yes, hyperhidrosis affects a significant number of people and can occur in anyone, typically manifesting in adolescence or sometimes earlier.

Is treatment for excessive sweating painful?

Treatments with injections can cause some discomfort, but this is generally minimal and short-lived. Most patients find the relief from sweating far outweighs any discomfort during treatment.

Are there any side effects of treatments for hyperhidrosis?

Side effects are generally minimal but can include temporary soreness and swelling at the injection sites, mild bruising, or tingling in the treated areas.

Can lifestyle changes help manage hyperhidrosis?

Yes, wearing breathable, loose-fitting clothing, using absorbent powders, and reducing stress can help manage symptoms.

Are there any natural remedies that can help control excessive sweating?

Some natural remedies reported to help manage symptoms include witch hazel, which acts as a natural astringent, and baking soda, which helps absorb moisture and neutralise body odour. Vinegar, particularly apple cider vinegar, can also adjust the pH level of your skin, reducing the environment where bacteria can thrive. However, effectiveness varies, and these remedies are not a substitute for professional treatment.
