Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than required for body temperature regulation. Almost 1 million Canadians suffer from hyperhidrosis.
While approximately 3% of the Canadian population suffers from hyperhidrosis, only about 38% of those affected actually seek treatment. Hyperhidrosis can affect work productivity, self-confidence and emotional well-being, not to mention wardrobe choices.
Primary hyperhidrosis typically affects specific areas, such as the armpits (axillary), hands (palmar) and feet (plantar). The cause for primary hyperhidrosis is unknown, but it can be triggered by emotional stress, spicy foods, hot climates and alcohol, to name a few.
Secondary hyperhidrosis can affect the entire body and is usually attributed to menopause, thyroid conditions, nervous system disorders and the use of certain medications.
