Excessive underarm sweating (also called axillary hyperhidrosis) affects millions of people every day. This medical condition can be treated easily without surgery by using Botox.
Excessive Sweating or Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2%-3% of the population suffered from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life.
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Although neurological, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.
If the sweating can be attributed to an underlying medical condition, it’s called secondary hyperhidrosis.
Health conditions that may cause excessive sweating include:
Endocarditis (an infection of the inner lining of the heart)
Fever of undetermined cause
Generalized anxiety disorder
Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
Medication side effects, such as sometimes experienced when taking some beta blockers and antidepressants
