Does sweat dominate your life?
Everyone sweats sometimes, but if you suffer with a high level of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweat), it can unfortunately dominate your life. You may have to choose clothes carefully, especially in warmer weather; you may have to constantly carry temporary solutions for your sweating. It can cause a lot of stress if you forget your anti-perspirant. You may even carry spare clothes with you at all times, which would seem extreme to somebody that doesn’t have the condition hyperhidrosis.
Hyperhidrosis in public
We sweat when we are hot, and some of us get hot very easily. We do not always sweat due to the environmental temperature, sometimes we perspire because we are nervous. Nerves and anxiety are undeniable factors within the hyperhidrosis condition as they tend to spark a vicious circle: we sweat because we are nervous – then we become nervous and worried because we are sweating. What can be even more nerve-wracking is being in an uncomfortable, public situation and realising that you are sweating excessively. Sweating in public can cause embarrassment and hinder confidence; because people can see sweat patches around your underarms, sometimes you worry that it may be assumed that you are dirty or unwashed, or at times you can become extremely self-conscious about your smelly armpits. There are temporary solutions to underarm sweating such as carrying anti-perspirants, wearing darker clothing or making sure you have a spare shirt available to you at all times. Unfortunately for those who suffer with hyperhidrosis on a more serious level, temporary solutions do not quite cut the mustard and in these cases we would recommend a longer-lasting treatment.
