What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition which causes excessive sweating, and is more common than you may think. Whilst it is difficult to measure what counts as ‘excessive’ – if the rate at which you’re sweating makes you feel uncomfortable and reluctant to take part in everyday activities, then you may be a sufferer.
What causes Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis can be caused by a number of things, most commonly an overactive Sympathetic Nervous System. In Hyperhidrosis sufferers, the nervous system that usually regulates your body temperature and sweating to keep you cool works at a higher level, triggering excessive sweat to be produced. Other triggers which may be a factor can include: hormonal changes such as pregnancy and menopause, stress and anxiety, obesity, overactive thyroid gland, low blood sugar and even certain medications. As a result, your condition may be temporary or chronic.
