What is hyperhidrosis?

Also known as excessive sweating, hyperhidrosis is a common condition that can affect the whole body or just certain areas of the body. Sometimes it may get better with time and it’s not something that will cause serious health issues, but there are simple treatments that can help.

If you find yourself sweating far more than other people, or you find yourself sweating even when you haven’t been doing any exercise, then you may have hyperhidrosis.

What causes excessive sweating?

Hyperhidrosis may be caused by a separate condition, or as a side effect of medicine you may be taking. Sometimes there may be no obvious cause for it; you may just be predisposed to it.

You have over four million sweat glands in your body, and they are most numerous on your feet, palms, face and armpits. When those nerves overreact, it causes you to sweat excessively.

How does hyperhidrosis treatment work?

There are multiple similarly formulated strong antiperspirants that can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, and Anhydrol Forte is one of these. They work by using aluminium chloride to block the sweat glands, and over time this reduces the amount of sweat that the sweat glands produce.

These antiperspirants should be applied before going to bed at night to block the sweat glands while they are least active, then washing it off in the morning. The sweat glands will stay blocked and should not produce sweat during the day.

Should I speak to my doctor about excessive sweating?

Usually you won’t need to talk to your doctor about your excessive sweating. Going to a GP about this issue is only recommended if:
Solutions such as stronger antiperspirants, soap substitutes and sweat shields aren’t working to quell the sweating
It’s lasted for over 6 months
It stops you from participating in your daily activities and is disrupting your life
You’re having night sweats (this could indicate more serious problems)
You’re taking medication for another condition

If this is the case for you, your doctor may determine whether or not you have an underlying condition that is causing this, and they may refer you for a stronger treatment, such as tablets that may reduce sweating or iontophoresis treatment.
