Summer is in full swing with lots of sunshine and playing outside! However, it also means hotter temperatures which in turn makes the sweating in full swing too! Sweating is our body’s natural way of regulating body temperature, thank goodness right?! It may not be pleasant to sweat but if we didn’t, we could easily overheat which would lead to other more serious issues!
However, the majority of us are relieved of sweating as the weather changes and the temperature cools down but about 3% of the US population is left with excess sweating year round called hyperhidrosis. An easy way of explaining hyperhidrosis is someone with overactive sweat glands. They sweat at rest and even when the temperature is cooler outside.
Unfortunately this condition not only affects people physically but also emotionally as many who suffer from this condition get embarrassed not knowing what’s causing it. The good news is, there is treatment for hyperhidrosis. Here is a good video to give you a little more information about this medical condition and Botox for excessive sweating:
If you feel you might be suffering from hyperhidrosis, you aren’t alone and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about! Schedule an appointment with your dermatologist and they can review your specific situation to see if you are a good candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment.
