What is Hyperhidrosis and its solution?


Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating that's not always related to heat or exercise. You may sweat so much that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands. Heavy sweating can disrupt your day and cause social anxiety and embarrassment. In this video, I discuss about causes and treatment of hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating, beyond what is required for normal body temperature regulation. It can occur in various parts of the body, such as the palms, soles, armpits, or face.


The main solutions for hyperhidrosis include: Topical treatments: Antiperspirants containing aluminum-based compounds (e.g., aluminum chloride) can help reduce sweat production. The exact causes of hyperhidrosis are not fully understood, but researchers have identified several potential factors that contribute to the development of this condition: Genetic factors: Hyperhidrosis can have a genetic component, with some studies indicating that it may run in families.

Overactive sympathetic nervous system: The sympathetic nervous system controls the sweat glands, and in individuals with hyperhidrosis, this system may be overly responsive, leading to excessive sweating. Hormonal imbalances: Certain hormonal changes, such as those associated with menopause or thyroid disorders, can sometimes trigger or exacerbate hyperhidrosis.


Underlying medical conditions: Hyperhidrosis can be a symptom of other medical conditions, such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, or certain types of cancer. Stress and anxiety: Heightened emotional states, such as stress or anxiety, can stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and trigger excessive sweating in individuals with hyperhidrosis.


Temperature changes: Sudden changes in temperature, either hot or cold, can sometimes provoke sweating episodes in people with hyperhidrosis. Certain medications:

Some medications, such as antidepressants, can occasionally cause or contribute to excessive sweating as a side effect.


In many cases, the underlying cause of hyperhidrosis remains unknown, and it is considered a primary or idiopathic condition. However, identifying and addressing any underlying medical factors can be an important part of managing the condition effectively.
