We have a buddy named Jesse that suffers from a condition called hyperhidrosis that causes excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis can cause excessive sweat in the armpits, on the hands, feet, and even other parts of the body.
Jesse did not always know she had hyperhidrosis. In fact, she assumed that she was more sweaty than others. We convinced her to go to the doctor because we felt like something was not right. Jesse’s hyperhidrosis caused her to sweat excessively even when it was not super sizzling outside. She had a feeling something was wrong when she was outside in the snow and her hands were excessively covered in sweat. Before Jesse got diagnosed, she had drastically high electric bills. Jesse would always turn her air conditioning on super freezing because she thought her sweating was heat related. No matter if her AC was low, if she was in the snow, or even right after showering Jesse would excessively sweat. She finally got her diagnosis and got a medicated deodorant to try. The deodorant did not work, so Jesse started taking medication which helps. Many people think they have hyperhidrosis if their armpits are sweaty from the heat and that is not necessarily true. For pretty much everyone, their sweat will stop if they go into a room with AC. If you do have hyperhidrosis, being in a sizzling and humid environment can cause a flare up even if you’re receiving treatment so it is important to stay in the AC area when possible. It’s beneficial for those suffering from hyperhidrosis to use a smart thermostat so their beach cabin remains comfortable.
