Hyperhidrosis: Is It Making You Sweat Too Much?
Do you sweat too much or too often? Perhaps you are at a party and maybe there are just too many people. Maybe you’re in a business meeting and you’re just nervous. Stressful situations can make anyone sweat, along with a lot of heat. Only you don’t feel particularly hot at the party. You know your stuff and think the meeting will be a breeze. You keep sweating though and you don’t know why. Perhaps you’re sweating not because of external stimuli, but a troubling sweat condition that can embarrass anyone.
The problem is known as hyperhidrosis, described by the U.S. National Library of Medicine as a condition “in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.” In other words, you will sweat anytime, anyplace, and seemingly without cause. Much like randomly getting the hiccups, it may come on suddenly and all you can do is try to mask the issue as best you can.
For most, this condition can be very frustrating to have and can be emotionally draining. The embarrassment may remind you of having bad acne when you were in your teenage years. The most problematic symptoms that occur from the excessive sweating are the depression, anxiety, and negative outlook of one’s self. Unfortunately for most who have hyperhidrosis, these are the symptoms that are ignored the most and can sometimes have the direst consequences for a person in his or her daily life.
The excessive sweating is not limited to specific areas of the body, but tends to happen most around the head, hands, torso, and armpits. Such sweating can make the infamous “pit stains” something to dread if you are going out on the town or just meeting with someone important. We all want to look our best in those situations and wetness seeping through our carefully cleaned and pressed clothes makes the effort seem in vain at times.
Fortunately, there are things that can be done to alleviate the stress and embarrassment of hyperhidrosis, though their success can range in effectiveness depending on the individual. Such solutions include the following:
- Strong Antiperspirants
- Prescribed Medication
- Botox Injections
- Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS)
- Underarm Surgery
Each treatment is not a cure-all and does come with its own side effects. Also, the treatments only handle one of two areas of the body in addition to being quite expensive. With medical costs what they are these days, a better and more affordable solution is needed for hyperhidrosis sufferers.
However, there is another alternative that you won’t get from a doctor’s office and will cost you much less. The Thompson Tee Sweat-Proof Undershirt line of products provide an affordable and concealed method of keeping your overactive sweat glands from revealing themselves to the world. Built with Hydro Shield Sweat-Proof patented technology, the Thompson Tee is able to keep unwanted wetness at bay and preventing those awful pit stains from developing. Even Dr. Sears from the popular TV show “The Doctors” is a believer in what the Thompson Tee can do for sufferers of hyperhidrosis.
