Hyperhidrosis

You don't sweat, you SPARKLE.

Many Canadians are affected by hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), a condition that stops your sweat glands from shutting off and keeps you dripping sweat in abnormal situations. There are two different types of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary. 

Primary (focal) hyperhidrosis begins in childhood (around 12 years old) and has a genetic link, though the cause is unknown people with primary

hyperhidrosis tend to have sweating localized to certain areas (e.g. hands, feet, face, underarms).

Secondary (generalized) hyperhidrosis results from medical conditions like nerve damage or menopause and/or medications and is characterized by sweating from your entire body.

What are the causes?

Sweating is how your body cools itself when it gets too hot (when you’re exercising, sick or really nervous). Nerves tell your sweat glands to start working. In hyperhidrosis, certain sweat glands work overtime for no apparent reason, producing sweat that you don’t need. Although there are many different causes for hyperhidrosis, here are some common ones:

Heat

Emotional Stress

Menopause

Metabolic Diseases

Odors & Food

Medications

Heredity

Infections
