Hyperhidrosis is a common condition where a person sweats excessively much more than the body needs to regulate its temperature. Excessive sweating doesn’t usually pose a serious threat to a person’s health, but it can be embarrassing and distressing. The inconvenience of it can also have a negative impact on your quality of life. There is no set way of defining excessive sweating, but if sweating is interfering with your daily life and normal activities, you may have hyperhidrosis. Many people with the condition are too embarrassed to seek medical help or believe that nothing can be done to improve their symptoms. However, there is help available at our Preston Clinic.

Hyperhidrosis can either:
• only affect certain parts of the body, most commonly the armpits, hands, feet or face; this is known as focal hyperhidrosis
• affect the entire body, known as generalised hyperhidrosis

Sometimes hyperhidrosis has no obvious cause, although many experts believe that problems with the nervous system may be responsible. This is reffered to as primary hyperhidrosis. Most cases of generalised hyperhidrosis have an underlying cause, such as:
• it can be a side effect of taking medication
• it can be related to another condition, such as an overactive thyroid gland

Doctors may refer to this as secondary hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition. It is thought that there are currently over one million people in England affected by it. Primary hyperhidrosis usually begins during childhood and gets worse after puberty. Men and women are equally affected by the condition. Secondary hyperhidrosis can begin at any age. Hyperhidrosis can be a very upsetting condition and it can sometimes be debilitating. People with the condition may experience feelings of depression and anxiety. But hyperhidrosis can sometimes just be an inconvenience. You do not need to wait for embarrassment to treat sweating.

Complications of hyperhidrosis can include increased risk of fungal infections, skin conditions and body odour. Some people may also be affected emotionally.

Excessive sweating can be challenging to treat and it may take a while to find a treatment right for you. Doctors usually recommend starting with the least invasive treatment, such as anti-perspirants. If this doesn’t work, you’ll move on to treatments such as medication to block the sweat glands and surgery. Most people experience a significant improvement to their symptoms with time. Another efficient but temporary method of treating excessive sweating is the application of the same product we use for anti-wrinkle treatment.

Because of its temporary nature the application of the product to prevent the hyperhidrosis is useful when only a transient effect is required or the sweating is not pathological but rather due to weather and lifestyle conditions. This option has been very popular as a lifestyle treatment. In this case the sweating is not classed as a disease but the person asking for this treatment might want to make sure that the sweating is under control at all times. It is very popular as a preparation for events like weddings on a hot summer day. Most body sprays will fail throughout a wedding on a long summer day. Treatment with the best products of the market can make sure nothing will spoil this special day and keep you in perfect shape all day long.
