Some people gain weight way too fast. Some people are born with not quite 20/20 vision. Still others are born with a weak heart or a weak physique. Then there are those that simply have excessive sweats. It doesn’t seem like such a life-threatening or even life changing condition, but hyperhidrosis or a sweating disorder can actually cause more trouble than it sounds, more than just on an aesthetic level. Maybe you suffer from it and you don’t know why you have excessive sweating when you work out or even if you’re just walking down the stairs.
Now, this sweating disorder can vary from a general excessive sweats to too much moisture coming out of specific parts of your body, hands, feet, behind the knees – anywhere you can sweat in fact is a place where you can sweat too much. The discomfort involve can vary from just having to bring a bunch of extra shirts – which can be fine for people who aren’t as concerned for their appearance – to crippling for people involved in careers that need hands that can grasp and grab objects reliably and consistently.
Social situations can become exponentially more awkward for people with this sweating disorder. After all, shaking hands when yours are moist can be considered an insult or simply, well, awkward. It’s not a good impression, regardless – you could look awkward or you could even appear as if you did not care for the opinion of your peers. It makes anxiety even more obvious, so obvious that even untrained observers can spot your fear and nervousness a mile away, which isn’t good if you’re involved in handling and creating deals.
Chefs can find this extremely inconvenient, bordering on game-breaking. Constantly sweaty palms can prevent one from handling the knife or foodstuffs well. Staff who are involved in person-to-person sales can easily lose a potential customer or client because of their unusual sweating condition. At the very worst level, a person can rapidly become dehydrated, become prone to a whole host of other problems. Even musicians aren’t safe from the negative effects of simply sweating too much. Even some solutions to this quandary can cause more trouble than they’re worth, as they can remove all sweating entirely and cause a whole different set of problems.
Treatments and cures are luckily, numerous, ranging from botox injections that can take out the sweat glands for a few months, which is the method that many Hollywood starts opt for to various drugs and medicines that can control the onset of hyperhidrosis, along with attempting to handle the triggers such as stress and anxiety.
It doesn’t seem like a big problem the way that cancer or a stroke would be, but it can certainly dampen and worsen the quality of life for anyone involved. Treating this sweating disorder and reducing the effect of excessive sweats can lead to more opportunities and a more comfortable life. The more comfortable you are with yourself, the more confident you’ll be and the more confident you are, the more successful you can be.
