Excess Sweating

What is excess sweating?

The medical term for excess sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. For many, sweating can be an embarrassing condition. Over a million people suffer with excessive sweating in the UK. This condition causes the body to sweat more than it needs to in order to regulate its temperature. 

This condition is commonly associated with the underarm area, however it can also affect the hands, feet, face and head.

 

Is this condition harmful?

Sweating is generally harmless and happens to both men and women. However if the sweating is severe, then it is best to contact your GP, as it may be an indication that you are suffering from a fungal/bacterial infection.
