Many Americans are suffering from this medical condition named severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis better known as severe underarm sweating.
Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling.
As you probably know, people with the condition do a lot to cope:
- Change clothes frequently
- Put absorbent materials under clothing
- Avoid certain fabrics and styles of clothes
- Seek medical attention and treatment
While people with severe underarm sweating may choose many different antiperspirants, in some instances those products do not work well enough for their sweating.
Clothing can be a real issue, because the wrong choice can reveal your severe underarm sweating condition rather than hide it. Your wardrobe can be very limited and you may have to purchase new clothing frequently.
Fortunately with the recent advances in medicine, many forms of treatment are available to treat hyperhidrosis. Medicated antiperspirants and surgery had been tried to treat this condition. Studies have shown that Botox treatment has been the leading way in regulating severe underarm sweating.
