Axillary Hyperhidrosis Treatment

By Michael Rad

Excessive underarm sweating can become an annoying problem for those suffering from this condition. Axillary hyperhidrosis manifests itself through an increased underarm sweat production and this is triggered by the sympathetic nervous system. A malfunction in the nerves controlling underarm sweat glands leads to excessive sweat production, resulting in constantly moist armpits. Often associated with the negative effects of palmar hyperhidrosis, axillary hyperhidrosis is sometimes triggered by exterior factors such as anxiety, psychological stress and tiredness. This is not a rule, however, and there may be no clearly identified stimuli that trigger excessive underarm sweat.

Treatment for Sweaty Underarms

There are several methods of reducing the effects of axillary hyperhidrosis. Antiperspirants are among the most commonly used treatments for sweaty underarms, and they work well for reducing milder cases of this condition. Deodorants are succesfuly used to relieve patients of some of the worries caused by excessive sweat. When the effects of antiperspirants are not strong enough, some consider surgical procedures to eliminate the problem. The underarm sweat glands can be surgically cut so that their production doesn't exceed regular limits, but this si a complicated and costly procedure. However, sinc antiperspirants are the most common choice for patients, we will have a detailed look at their effects.

The Efficiency of Antiperspirants in Combating Hyperhidrosis

Antiperspirants are useful for treating milder cases of hyperhidrosis, as they can diminsih the negative effects of excessive sweating. By targeting specific sweat glands, antiperspirants significantly reduce the sweat production and increase the dryness of the skin in the areas where they are applied. Various products come in different forms, such as deodorants and medication. Deodorants are the most widespread form of antiperspirants, as they are easy to use and producce very little or no discomfort.

Axillary hyperhidrosis

One of the most effective chemical compounds used for hyperhidrosis treatment is Aluminum Chloride. Used in higher concentrations, Aluminum Chloride has a faster impact on the sweat glands, reducing their excessive production. Aluminum Chloride products work best at night time, when the sweat glands show a reduced activity, and long term results may show some improvement concerning excessive sweating of the armpits.

Axillary Hyperhidrosis and Its Social Implications

While from a medical point of view, sweaty underarms do not represent a health risk, they are hard to deal with in society. The discomfort of constantly having damp underams is increased by the fear that clothing accessories will become sweaty. Axillary hyperhidrosis treatment is seen as a necessary thing by many who suffer from this condition, as they feel this problem is affecting their social interactions. People who suffer from any form of excessive sweat are faced with some difficult social and psychological issues. Many are overwhelmed by these problems and become somewhat anti social and have difficulties integrating in groups. Career plans are also placed under the negative shadow of axillary hyperhidrosis, as self confidence and self esteem levels tend to drop.

Anyone suffering from hyperhidrosis should accept the condition, rather than deny it, and try to find a positive solution to solving the problem. There is no easy way to get rid of excessive sweat, but there are medical drugs and methods that can help you reduce its negative effects.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
