What is Hyperhidrosis?
People with excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) sweat profusely, and some sweat almost constantly. Although people with a fever or those exposed to very warm environments sweat, people with excessive sweating tend to sweat even without these circumstances. Excessive sweating may affect the entire surface of the skin, but often it is limited to the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, armpits, or genital area.
It is estimated that over eight million Americans have issues with Hyperhidrosis, but many do not discuss with their physician. Usually, no specific cause is found. However, a number of disorders can cause excessive sweating. People who sweat excessively are frequently anxious about their condition, and it may lead to social withdrawal. This anxiety may make the sweating worse. Severe, chronic wetness can make the affected area white, wrinkled, and cracked and be seen under the armpits, hands and feet. Sometimes the area becomes red and inflamed. The area may emit a foul odor (bromhidrosis) due to the breakdown of sweat by bacteria and yeasts that normally live on the skin. Clothing may also become soaked with sweat. Many dermatologist feel that sweat still has “a lot of connotations in our society,” including deviousness and poor hygiene, “so someone who sweats excessively will be conscious how they feel about themselves and how others feel about them.”
Treatment For Hyperhidrosis
Excessive sweating can be controlled with commercial antiperspirants. However, stronger treatment is often needed; such as Monray® Antiperspirant. Monray is an aluminum chloride solution that works during your rest period. It is recommended that it be applied before bedtime. A person first dries the sweaty area and then applies the solution. It has been noted that patients using Monray® Antiperspirant for several days can start to skip a day.
Deodorants don’t stop sweat-
Remember, deodorants cover up the odor, they don’t stop the sweat glands from producing sweat. If you want to stop sweat, you have to use a antiperspirant.
Monray Antiperspirant is proven to be the strongest USA produced antiperspirant on the market.
