Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common medical condition. It takes something that’s natural, like sweating, and turns it into an uncontrollable condition that can rob you of your life’s joy. It is estimated that approximately five percent of the population deals with hyperhidrosis. Although hyperhidrosis is not life-threatening, for many individuals, it does put their social life at risk. People with hyperhidrosis experience the devastating effects in many areas of their life. If you have hyperhidrosis, it may be time to consider miraDry®.
When you have hyperhidrosis, you may have to deal with sweaty armpits. This might not seem like a big deal until you think about how it limits the clothing that you can wear. You’re not able to wear those cute and fun tank tops that are full of colors. Instead, you need to pick clothing that is dark. You want your clothing to completely hide the fact that you are sweating.
Hyperhidrosis affects the way that you feel about yourself. In an instant, you can go from being a confident individual who has a high level of self-esteem and who feels good about themselves to an individual who feels extremely stressed, depressed and self-conscious. Living with excessive sweating is something that a person never gets used to. It’s a condition that is frustrating, but it’s not a condition that you have to live with forever.
