Q: What is Primary hyperhidrosis?
A: Though sweating is essential to cool down the human body, however in some people, it is so excessive that they may sweat four or five times more than is necessary, or normal, which has no underlying medical or emotional cause. This is called Primary Hyperhidrosis. It can disrupt all aspects of a person's life, from career choices and recreational activities to relationships, emotional well-being, and self-image. This is a serious medical condition and it affects millions of people around the world (approximately 3% of the population) but because of lack of awareness, more than half of these people are never diagnosed or treated for their symptoms.
Q: What is the condition peculiar to excessive underarm sweating called?
A: It is called Axillary Hyperhidrosis. It is a condition in which the underarm sweat glands are overactive, producing much more sweat than is needed to cool the body.
Excessive palm sweating is called Palmar Hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis can be associated with:
1) Bromhidrosis which means a foul odor due to a water-rich environment that supports bacteria growth, caused by an abnormal increase in perspiration especially in the axillary area.
2) Chromhidrosis: secretion of colored sweat may be yellow, green, blue, brown or black
Dermatology life quality index (DQLI): It evaluates the impact of hyperhidrosis on a person's daily activities. This score can be as high as 9/10 without treatment, indicating hyperhidrosis can cause severe impact on a patient's daily life.
