Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical word for excessive sweating. It is a condition that can be embarrassing and uncomfortable for some people. Sweating is a normal part of our body’s mechanism that regulates heat. But when sweating goes beyond what is needed for regulation it becomes deemed as hyperhidrosis.

Did you know… Between 1 to 3% of people in the UK are believed to suffer from excessive sweating and it is common among both men and women.

What causes it?

Although it doesn’t specifically cause excessive sweating, anxiety is said to make it worse. Often there is no obvious cause of hyperhidrosis as the sweat glands in people with hyperhidrosis are normal in size, number and location; making them no different from anyone else.
