Excessive sweating with little effort. what does it mean and what helps?

Excessive sweating with little effort is a condition called hyperhidrosis. It is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating in certain areas of the body, such as the hands, feet, underarms, and face. The exact cause of hyperhidrosis is unknown, but it is thought to be caused by a combination of factors, including genetics, anxiety, and stress.

There are a number of things that can help to reduce excessive sweating, including:

  • Over-the-counter antiperspirants and deodorants: These products can help to reduce sweating by blocking the pores.
  • Iontophoresis: This is a treatment that uses a mild electrical current to block the sweat glands.
  • Botulinum toxin injections: This is a treatment that uses botulinum toxin to paralyze the sweat glands.
  • Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the sweat glands.

If you are experiencing excessive sweating, it is important to see a doctor to determine the cause and discuss treatment options.

Here are some additional tips for managing excessive sweating:

  • Wear loose-fitting, breathable clothing.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol, which can make you sweat more.
  • Wash your body and clothes regularly.
  • Use a fan or air conditioner to keep cool.
  • Keep your nails trimmed short to prevent bacteria from growing.
  • Talk to your doctor about medications that can help to reduce sweating.

  • Pain relievers: Pain relievers, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioids, can also cause sweating.
