Did you know your body has between 2 million and 4 million sweat glands that release sweat to help cool you down when your body heats up? Sweating is normal and healthy but excessive sweating interferes with daily activities and overall quality of life. Severe or excessive underarm sweating is also known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis. It is a medical condition which causes the body to sweat more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature.
Antiperspirants & Deodorants Don’t Work for Me!
Over the counter and prescription antiperspirants and deodorants are most often the first options people with severe underarm sweating use to try to alleviate their sweating problem. Antiperspirants are designed to block sweat ducts and thereby reduce the amount of perspiration that reaches the skin while deodorants help to control body odor. The problem is that these products don’t always work well enough. You shouldn’t have to constantly be worried and self conscious about sweat stains and odors.
Signs of Excessive Sweating
If you regularly practice any of the following cover-ups or other actions to cope with sweating, you are likely suffering from severe underarm sweating:
– Change clothing frequently
– Place absorbent materials under clothing
– Avoid certain fabrics or specific clothing styles
– Have been fed up enough to seek medical attention and treatment
