Why Do I Keep Sweating Under My Armpits?

I sweat under my arms especially at night, I have no idea why. It’s been going on since i started puberty and now I’m 15 years old, it’s driving me crazy! What do you think?

ANSWER: Primary Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating in the armpits and/or groin area. The sweating can be significant enough to stain clothing or bed sheets with perspiration. Sweat that comes from the armpit glands has a pungent odor which can also cause problems for those who sweat excessively as well as those around them. In most cases of primary hyperhidrosis there are no other symptoms associated with this disorder such as nervousness, dizziness or palpitations however if these symptoms become so intense they may need evaluation by your physician immediately!
