Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) is common and in most occasions is not caused by an illness or disease. People with this condition can sweat for no apparent reason even when they aren’t hot and not exercising. Though excessive sweating in itself doesn’t affect your health, it can affect your quality of life. Many people with this condition find it can make them unhappy, depressed, anxious or embarrassed. It can affect people’s social lives, work, relationships and level of confidence. You might feel that your choice of clothing is restricted, for example, if you tend to wear black so sweat stains are less visible. It can also lead to complications such as skin conditions like eczema, and physical discomfort. Luckily, you can get your excessive sweating treatment that can nullify those unpleasant symptoms.
