Sweating Too Much?

For many, excessive sweating, especially sweaty palms, can interfere with your job and cause embarrassment in social situations. Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating doesn’t just occur during physical exertion. It can happen at any time. But how do you know if you are actually suffering from a medical condition? And if you are, what can you do to put an end to it?

When Does Your Sweat Become Too Much?

While you may know that you sweat frequently or sweat more than most people, you may not be aware that you are suffering from hyperhidrosis. Below are five signs of excessive sweating along with methods for dealing with the condition.

1. Handshaking Embarrassment

Do you get nervous when you know you will need to shake hands? Do you find yourself wiping off your palms just before a handshake? It may be that you are suffering from hyperhidrosis, which often results in excessively sweating hands. To cut down on the embarrassment you’ll want to check your palms before a handshake. You should also consult a doctor about thoracic sympathectomy, a surgical procedure that can put an end to hyperhidrosis for good.

2. Pit Stains and Ruined Shirts

Do your casual and business shirts frequently feature pit stains, even when you’re right under air conditioning? This is another common sign of excessive sweating. Invest in lightweight, breathable fabrics. These materials will help you sweat less. They can also wick away moisture so that you aren’t consistently soaked with sweat.

3. Being Consistently Dehydrated

Sweating excessively also means you get dehydrated faster than others. Regardless of the temperature, pay attention to how much you’re sweating and be sure to drink plenty of fluids to replenish those you’re losing through sweat.

4. Losing Your Grip

When sweat builds up on your palms, it can cause you to lose your grip on what you are holding. Sweaty hands may be unable to properly hold everything from pens and pencils to weights or bats. Keep your hands dry with a towel and make sure that you have a proper grip on anything that could be dangerous if dropped.

5. Smudging Your Paperwork

Do you ever finish handwritten paperwork only to see that you have smeared ink everywhere due to your sweaty hands? It’s not only frustrating, but it can ruin your clothes and set you back during your work. Seek insight from a medical professional to learn the best hyperhidrosis treatments.
