When Sweating is NOT Cool

Underarm Sweat Atlanta GA

Let’s face it, there are certain things that are perfectly normal functions of the human body that are still quite embarrassing. Burping, passing gas, and sweating are the most common embarrassments that most people try to avoid at all costs while out in public. Sweating is the body’s natural cooling feature, yet there are certain times when sweating is completely unwanted. Sure, sweating profusely during a workout can make you feel great knowing you pushed your body to its limit, but sweating during normal situations can make you feel awful.

When the body exerts itself, is in a hot environment, or is under stress, sweating is normal. However, when the body experiences abnormally excessive sweating that is not related to heat or exercise, it is a condition called hyperhidrosis. People who sweat so much that it soaks through their clothes, drips down their foreheads, or drips off their hands are experiencing a disruption to their daily life.

Social situations, professional environments, and intimate encounters can all be ruined by profuse sweating. If excessive sweating has begun to take its toll on your quality of life, it is time to do something about it. At Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, Dr. Jamie Weisman has the experience and depth of research needed to accurately diagnose the cause of your hyperhidrosis and give you a specialized treatment plan.

Certain underlying causes can trigger excessive sweating:

  • Eating spicy foods
  • Emotions
  • Excessive caffeine consumption
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal fluctuations (pregnancy, menopause, etc.)
