Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be a significant source of embarrassment and discomfort. No one wants to raise their arms and have to worry about having sweat stains under their armpits.
What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, commonly referred to as excessive sweating, is a disorder in which the body’s natural cooling mechanisms fail to function normally causing you to sweat excessively. It can affect the face, armpits, hands, feet as well as the groin area, and come about in response to stress or exercise. Many who suffer from hyperhidrosis are worried about developing a foul odor which can lead to embarrassment and negatively impact their daily activities and social interactions.
