Frequently Asked Questions About Excessive Sweating

The disease can develop due to a drug or a medical condition. Regional excessive sweating is sweating that occurs especially in the armpits, palms, soles, and more rarely in the head and neck region.

Sweating while eating is seen in what is called Frey's syndrome. Common hyperhidrosis; It can occur due to hormonal, neurological, infectious reasons or cardiovascular diseases, respiratory system diseases, drugs and poisoning.

However, bacteria can multiply rapidly in hot and humid environments such as armpits, causing this epidemic to smell bad.

Apart from physical activities, many events such as excitement, fear, embarrassment and boredom can cause sweating even though there is no physiological reason. When body temperature rises due to external temperatures or tension, blood circulation is accelerated.

Thus, a flow of heat begins towards the upper part of the body where the sweat glands become active. In this case, the sweat formed on the skin evaporates and cools the skin. Sweating problem, which occurs especially in hot weather, may increase in some people due to situations such as weight, stress, excessive activity.
