Hyperhidrosis or excess sweating is a very common condition which can cause terrible inconvenience and embarrassment to the many people who suffer from the condition.
Axillary hyperhidrosis effects the underarm region and causes excessive sweating in the area even without heat or exercise but other parts of the body can also be affected. Clients with hyperhidrosis often report suffering both physical and social consequences because of the condition. Heavy perspiration can cause bad smells and staining to clothing, and sadly it can negatively affect self-esteem and confidence. Anxiety about the condition can itself worsen the effects and many clients report going to great lengths to conceal it, some even avoiding social situations altogether.
