Excessive sweating: Hyperhidrosis

Excessive sweating:

Hyperhidrosis (extreme, uncontrollable sweating) is a condition in which sweating in excess takes place without explanation, or without a reason. It may affect anybody (5% of population), although there seems to exist a family trend. Most cases are of unknown origin. 

Usually, the condition has an extraordinary effect on the normal life of individuals, altering their quality of living. When sweating is severe, it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, anxiety-inducing, dangerous, and disabling. It often disrupts all aspects of a person's life, from career choices and recreational activities to relationships, emotional well-being, and self-confidence (IHS).

The areas most commonly affected are armpits, hands, forehead and face, neck, body, groin, feet. It can be localized or generalized.

There are solutions for this condition. If you want to find out more about it, ask for an appointment at Health & Aesthetic Medicine London, with Dr Ricardo.
