The Scoop on Sweat
When is sweat too much sweat? For some people, sweating can go into overdrive. Severe underarm sweating, also known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. The severity of the condition is based on the extent it interferes with your daily activities.
What’s considered “normal” sweating?
There is no “normal”! Some people just naturally sweat more than others, so it is best to not compare yourself with other people.
Are antiperspirants and deodorants enough?
Not always. Over-the-counter and prescription antiperspirants are 2 of the first options people with severe underarm sweating try. These products work by blocking sweat ducts and reducing the amount of perspiration that reaches the skin. Deodorants help control body odor and are typically used in addition to antiperspirants.
