What is Hyperhidrosis?


Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by excessive sweating .
Hyperhidrosis is an unpleasant excess of sweating, in one or several parts of the body.
Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating that surpasses the needs of the body to control the corporal temperature. It is a benign condition, but it can be extremely unpleasant for most people. It is a problem that is not so rare and it occurs in up to 1% of the population. In a city like São Paulo, with 12 million inhabitants, there are aproximately 120.000 people with that kind of problem. It is very likely that everyone has in their family, at their workplace or among their friends somebody who suffers from hyperhidrosis. It is not so visible most of the times and, feeling embarrassed, people don't like to reveal the disease.


People who have Hyperhidrosis can present an inexplicable sweating increase in many different situations and without any appearent cause. This increase can be felt in the armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis) , in the hands (palmar hyperhidrosis) , in the feet (plantar hyperhidrosis) , in the face (facial hyperhidrosis) or in any other part of the body.


Sometimes, emotions can worsen the process of Hyperhidrosis. People can become insecure because they think they are under emotional tension/ stress , or because they imagine other people might think think they are under intense emotional tension/stress. Although Hyperhidrosis can be caused and worsened because of the emotional factor, it is wrong to say it is caused only because of psychological reasons. In other words, for the same emotion, a person who does not suffer from Hyperhidrosis would not present sweating excess, while the other with Hyperhidrosis, can manifest this excess. However, the presence of Hyperhidrosis along the years, ends up generating emotional tension that feeds the process in a vicious cycle, where the emotional alterations intensify, turning Hyperhidrosis into a difficult condition for a lot of people to live with.


But Hyperhidrosis can also appear without any emotion, or even without any apparent reason. That causes patients a lot of embarrassment, giving the other people the wrong impression of a great emotional disarray, while actually this emotional factor does not exist in such high degree.
In some cases, people can present hyperhidrosis even in low environmental temperatures and others, in high temperatures.


Some patients refer that they started presenting Hyperhidrosis when submitted to larger responsibilities, usually in professional situations, or during periods of larger emotional loads, as the adolescence, family problems, matrimonial or economical problems. What happens is that these people already suffered from Hyperhidrosis, but with the emotional stress, it became visible.
“The Trigger for Hyperhidrosis Syndrome”, described by Naturale Clinic’s doctors, is the group of psychological reactions resulting from the Genetic Hyperhidrosis, that causes anxiety and worsens the signs and symptoms.
