Hyperhidrosis, Excessive Sweating

For millions of people worldwide, excessive sweating is a daily struggle that can interfere with nearly every aspect of life.  Whether it's anxiety at work, embarrassment in relationships or social settings, or frustration over constantly ruining clothes, excessive sweating can have devastating effects on a person's emotional well-being and self-image.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a medical condition described as: sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body.  More specifically, primary focal hyperhidrosis is localized to one or more of the following areas: hands (palmar), feet (plantar), face (facial) and/or underarms (axillary).  Approximately two-thirds of those seeking treatment have axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating).

For people with hyperhidrosis, their sweat glands are overactive - frequently turning on when they should be at rest, and producing much more sweat than a normal person.  Prevalence is highest among those 25-64 years of age and is similar for both men and women.  Excessive sweating treatment options can range from topical preparations to surgery and can vary in terms of effectiveness, duration of effectiveness and associated risk/invasiveness.
