Hyperhidrosis, a condition that affects 5% of the population, can be a source of discomfort due to excess sweating, especially in areas such as the armpits and palms of the hands. Hyperhidrosis is more common in young adults, with the armpits being the most affected area after adolescence, and the palms of the hands in the case of children.
It is important to note that there are two main types of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary. Primary hyperhidrosis has no specific medical cause and usually has a hereditary component. On the other hand, secondary hyperhidrosis occurs as a result of an underlying disease and can lead to excessive sweating throughout the body.
Medical conditions that can contribute to heavy sweating include diabetes, menopausal hot flashes, thyroid gland problems, low blood sugar, some types of cancer, heart attacks, nervous system disorders, and infections. Although the sweat glands in these patients have a normal size and density, they have greater sebum production activity.
Treatment for hyperhidrosis involves the infiltration of botulinum toxin type A, which effectively reduces the activity of the sweat glands. This provides relief to those suffering from hyperhidrosis and allows them to lead a more comfortable and confident life.
