Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis or Excessive Sweating Delray

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis causes your body to sweat more than it needs to, sometimes for no apparent reason. Sweating can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, which is why many people never seek help. Hyperhidrosis treatments (like special antiperspirants and high-tech therapies) offer you options. You can reduce your symptoms and regain control over your life.

There are two types of hyperhidrosis

There are two types of hyperhidrosis: primary focal and secondary generalized.

Primary focal hyperhidrosis

  • Most often affects the feet, hands, underarms, head, and face
  • Affects both sides of the body
  • Begins in childhood and it affects the hands and feet. During puberty it can affect the underarms
  • Possibly, people inherit the genes that cause this type of hyperhidrosis

Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis

  • Results as a side effect from taking a certain medicine or from a medical problem
  • Conditions that can cause this type of hyperhidrosis include menopause, an overactive thyroid, diabetic nerve disease, obesity, and stroke
  • Sweating involves large areas of the body
  • May occur during sleep
