Although excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, is not a medically serious condition, it can be embarrassing and distressing. For instance, someone with bad palm sweating may be constantly afraid of offering a cold, sweaty handshake or of having their sweat drip onto their work documents or office hardware. Someone with bad armpit sweating faces other problems, such as the embarrassing wet patches on clothes under the arms or the need to change clothes at least once during the day.
Such events can adversely affect one’s social life. Fortunately, there are a number of things that you can do to manage and treat the condition, including lifestyle changes. Generally, lifestyle changes cannot cure the primary cause of excessive sweating, but it can dramatically improve the symptoms and give you a confidence boost.
