Why Do I Sweat So Much?

Sep 13, 2008
INTRODUCTION: An excessive sweating problem is usually caused by a disorder of over-active sweat glands like the thoracic gland and causes a lot of inferiority complexes, thus leading patients to avoid facing the public and in turn lowering their morale and spirits. It could also be a symptom of menopause.

Perspiring At Night is a very common problem for many people. It happens at night because we reach a point where the bed is no longer able to absorb more heat. It is the very last action that the body takes in its effort to cool down. Excessive perspiration can be very embarrassing and may sometimes signal a more serious health problem.

HYPERHIDROSIS: A genetic condition that causes unusual sweating of the hands, underarms, feet, scalp, face, or blushing that is beyond the normal emotional and physiological need. It also is known to promote the development of skin infections and also increase your body odour. It affects more than four million Americans and can negatively affect people both socially and functionally in their daily lives. This problems presents many choices and important decisions so please consult your physician.

TREATMENT: Excess perspiring created either by disorders of sweat glands or over active glands can be cured quite easily either by thoracic surgery procedure or an excessive perspiration treatment. Treatments to cure overactive sweat glands and excessive sweating problems is easily gotten but your doctor should take into account your health, age, severity of the condition, allergies to specific drugs, procedures and therapies.

Some of the other ways to treat hyperhidrosis or unusual sweating problems include surgical removal of the overactive glands, iontophoresis (The use of an electric current to introduce the ions of a medicament into bodily tissues.), applying of aluminum chloride solution and psychological counseling.

You should remember that the problem cannot be stopped unless some sort of treatment or cure is taken. In fact the medicines that claim to treat the condition do not label themselves as treatment for hyperhidrosis; they just claim that controlling it is an added feature of the medicines. You should also remember that such over-the-counter products are only temporary solutions and not a permanent one.

Botulinum toxin or Botox is another treatment that is used to cure over active sweat glands. It was first used to treat eye muscle spasms and wrinkles. But many people observed that botox also decreased perspiration in those areas where it was injected and thus many MD's started using botox injections to treat excessive sweating. Botox is very expensive and has a success rate of 90 percent, but the effect will last only for 6 to 8 months.

There are many people who have gotten some relief using one of the methods mentioned above, but if you have tried some of the above said solutions and have found no relief from excessive perspiring, then surgery would be your best option. Consult your Physician.

CONCLUSION: Excessive sweating includes sweaty palms and feet along with body odor. It is also known as hyperhidrosis or hyperhydrosis, and is a result of overactive glands and may be controlled with strong antiperspirants, which plug the sweat ducts. This excessive perspiring problem can only be cured by thoracic surgery procedure. Look out for different safe methods and if all goes well you might end up finding a cure for your problem yourself.
