Night sweats occur as a result of excessive perspiration which can leave your bedding and night clothes feeling soaked, causing a restless and uncomfortable night’s sleep. Sweating is your body’s natural reaction to cooling down the body as water is released through sweat glands in the skin which then evaporates off the skin to cool the body down.
However for some, night sweats may be a sign of hyperhidrosis which can occur in both men and women, which creates the concern of excessive sweating. Particularly during the hot summer months, excessive sweating during the night can create restless and sleepless nights which can impact upon your daily routine and well-being as it is important to get a good night’s sleep.
Why Am I Getting Night Sweats?
Night sweats can occur for a number of different reasons, which is why we advise patients seek guidance and medical advice from your GP, before considering treatment here at PHI Clinic. Your body is made up from approximately 2-4 million sweat glands throughout your body, with your underarms containing about 2% of those glands but can be the greatest area of concern with excessive sweating.
