Few people associate sweating with the winter months, which is why it is often such a surprise when people find that they are troubled with excessive sweating during cold temperatures. Sweating, no matter what the temperatures are, is caused by body glands opening up in order to regulate the body temperatures. The body is still working hard throughout the year, during cold and hot temperatures, to keep itself at a comfortable and normal level. However, there are circumstances in which the body produces an extreme amount of stress known as the condition hyperhidrosis. Chronic excessive sweating is not only embarrassment but it can also put limitations on your quality of life.
Hyperhidrosis causes excessive sweating of the hands, feet, and underarms that is often very interruptive to your life. In social situations, it can be awkward to extend your hand for hand-shaking; in professional situations, awkwardness goes beyond hand-shaking and can interrupt important business deals and promotions. Excessive sweating of the underarms can make you appear weak to those in the business realm, as well as cause embarrassing situations with colleagues. Hyperhidrosis is a condition of the skin that needs expert attention and care.
