Hyperhidrosis is a term used to refer to excessive sweating, especially sweating under the arms and sweating at night. Sweating is necessary in order to keep your body cool, so you cannot stop sweating entirely. However, excessive sweating is a treatable condition, and we have the equipment to treat it effectively at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Your body produces sweat to keep itself at a sustainable temperature, but in some cases, sweat glands can go into overdrive and produce much more sweat than you need. This can happen due to a hereditary disorder where the nerves that signal your sweat glands when to turn on and off do not function properly, causing you to sweat even when you don’t need to cool down. Hyperhidrosis can also be a symptom of infection, diabetes, or hormonal changes like menopause.
What Are the Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is an uncomfortable medical condition that causes excessive sweating when we need it least. Common signs include sweating at night, during the day, and in inappropriate situations. Generally, a person with this issue will sweat excessively from a certain area like their palms, underarms, or face. Besides making normal daily activities uncomfortable, this condition can also have a negative impact on interpersonal relationships and job performance.
