CHICAGO HYPERHIDROSIS (EXCESSIVE SWEATING)

I. Definition:

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating.  It is a troublesome condition that results in uncomfortable and awkward social situations for those who are affected by it.  The problem may be limited to the armpits, but often the palms and soles sweat excessively also. Excessive sweating becomes noticeable after puberty.  Stressful situations such as examinations, job interviews, or an important date will aggravate the sweating.  Many affected individuals must change their shirts or socks several times a day, or constantly wipe their hands self consciously.  Most over-the-counter antiperspirants do not control hyperhidrosis.

If you suffer from excessive sweating, you are not alone.  It is estimated that several million people in the world are affected by hyperhidrosis - approximately 1% of the world population!
