Are you too worried about your hyperhidrosis to enjoy being around people? Here’s how you can stop sweating about your medical condition and enjoy more confidence in the workplace and out with your friends.
Don’t sweat it—it’s an interesting expression, indicative of the fact that we culturally associate sweat with stress. “Don’t sweat it” translates to “don’t worry about it,” but if sweat is synonymous with worry, anxiety, and stress, then it’s a significant problem for those who suffer from excessive sweating
No one wants to feel the discomfort of sweat-damp clothing or the even more uncomfortable stares when that dampness becomes visible on your clothing, face, neck, etc.
Excessive sweating is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis and there is an easy-to-obtain and use product to help treat it, but first let’s learn more about the condition.
How common is hyperhidrosis?
Because hyperhidrosis hasn’t been recognized as a medical condition for very long, it is difficult to know for certain just how common it is. What is known is that more people suffer from the condition than have approached their doctors for assessment and diagnosis. A survey conducted in the United States revealed that, out of the survey sample of 6,800 individuals, 2.8% were affected by hyperhidrosis, which means approximately 7.8 million Americans suffer from hyperhidrosis. A further study revealed that 1.4% of the US population suffers from axillary hyperhidrosis (that’s 50.8% of those who suffer from hyperhidrosis, so around 3.9 million Americans. Further, the survey showed that merely 38% of hyperhidrosis sufferers had discusses their excess sweating with a doctor, despite the fact that one third of the individuals who suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis (1.3 million Americans) find their condition to be intolerable, and that it often interferes with daily activities.

There is support available that can help you get back to living your daily life as normal—without the fear of interference from your medical condition.
How do you know if you have hyperhidrosis?’
The main symptom of hyperhidrosis is its excessive sweating, and it isn’t restricted to any particular area on the body. It can affect underarms, palms, and soles of the feet, and it can start as early as age 13 or as late as late adolescence. If left untreated, the condition will typically continue through life. There is no clear cause of the condition. Neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and systemic diseases can cause the condition, but in many cases, hyperhidrosis affects otherwise healthy individuals, and while the condition may be triggered by emotions or heat, for many it is a problem that persists through all waking hours, regardless of mood or weather factors.
What can you do if you are a sufferer?
In some cases, treatments can help improve quality of life for those who suffer from hyperhidrosis, so you should talk to your doctor about your options. However, for those who have seen a doctor and aren’t seeing improvements following treatment—or who aren’t seeing enough improvement to feel confident in public, on dates, during social interactions, in business meetings, or even gripping a pen or holding the steering wheel of a car—there is help available.
