A: Sweating from the armpits is called hyperhidrosis. It’s a common problem, with over 70% of people experiencing it at some point in their lives. Hyperhidrosis can come and go as your body system works to keep it under control, but most people experience this for a few weeks each year – usually just after they’ve been exposed to high temperatures. Most cases are mild enough that you don’t notice them unless you’re being especially attentive to your natural body processes. However, if the excessive sweating lasts longer than a week or two then there may be medical causes behind it – such as diabetes or thyroid problems – so you should see a doctor to have these checked out first.
Q: How would I know if my sweat glands are blocked?
A: If your skin feels irritated underneath clothing where sweat naturally dissipates, or when removing heavy clothing during hot days (this could indicate blockage), then this would warrant further examination by our team of dermatologists using state-of-the-art techniques on site at SkinCare Australia clinics across Sydney and Melbourne hospitals and private practices around Australia and overseas too! The more extensive tests we perform will allow us to determine which type of condition is affecting your sweating patterns; whether it’s triggered by an imbalance between salt intake/exercise/stress levels or any other kind of trigger; what diet has contributed towards making the situation worse; how long you’ve had symptoms before seeking help; etc., etc
