Hyperhidrosis is often a harmless condition where excessive sweating occurs on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and underarms. Excessive sweating in Tucson, AZ affects both men and women in everyday life such as career and during social activities that can cause embarrassment and distress.
How do you know if your symptoms are extreme? If you are not exerting yourself such as exercising or you are not exposed to a hot climate, yet your sweating profusely, this is a perfect example of your body potentially overreacting. When sweating goes beyond our body’s natural requirement, or when the conditions or environment do not fit the cause, this may be a sign you have hyperhidrosis. Before seeking treatment for this condition, check with your doctor to make sure your symptoms are not associated with a more serious medical condition.
