Sweat plays a crucial role in regulating body temperature and is a response to a variety of internal and external factors, including emotional states, environmental conditions, and physical activity. 

Sweat is produced by two main types of glands: the eccrine and the apocrine. 

  • Eccrine Glands are distributed all over the body and release a clear, odorless fluid primarily for cooling.
  • Apocrine Glands are found mainly in the underarms and groin area, these glands secrete a thicker fluid that, when broken down by skin bacteria, leads to body odor.

The Challenges of Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis, is a condition affecting a significant portion of the population. It’s characterized by the overproduction of sweat, often unrelated to the usual triggers like heat or exercise. Hyperhidrosis can be primary or secondary. 

Primary usually begins in childhood or adolescence, is often hereditary, and is typically localized to specific areas like the hands, feet, and underarms.

Secondary arises in adulthood and is often a symptom of another medical condition or a side effect of medication.

Regardless of type, hyperhidrosis can have profound psychological and social implications, impacting self-esteem, confidence, and daily life.
