Are you sweating excessively even inside an air-conditioned room? Do you sweat without any external trigger? You are likely to experience hyperhidrosis.
It is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweat or perspiration. We all sweat, but people with hyperhidrosis sweat even in the absence of a thermo-regulatory trigger. They experience sweaty palms, feet, armpits, and forehead.
More than anything, the social stigma around this condition leads to embarrassment and lowered quality of life. It is not life-threatening, but it has a negative impact on your social, mental, and emotional life.
Some common signs of hyperhidrosis are –
- Wet palms and feet
- Stained armpits and noticeable patches of sweat through your clothes
Common conditions linked to hyperhidrosis include –
- Skin rashes and irritations

- Self withdrawal from making physical contact

- Frequently cleaning sweat, changing clothes, or placing napkin underarms
- Bother about body odor and stains on clothes
There is nothing to worry about if you are experiencing some of the above conditions. A simple treatment process can control excessive sweating and help you live a normal life. Consult your doctor, and start your treatment today.
