How to beat the social stigma around hyperhidrosis?

A sweaty palm, stained armpit, or a wet shirt can throw anyone off balance; it can reduce confidence and lead to embarrassment. Now imagine facing such a situation every day in life!

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where a person experiences excessive sweating without any external trigger, like rising temperature, physical activity, or anxiety.

More than 80% of people having hyperhidrosis experience a negative impact on their social, emotional, and mental well-being. More than the physical condition, it is the social stigma that creates negative impacts.

  • It is all in your mind

Most people do not go for treatment due to this stigma. Excessive sweating is not your fault; there is nothing to be ashamed of or hide from others. Consider it to be like any other disorder like acne or rashes.

  • Open Up

Learn more about this condition. Research about the foods that you should avoid, the outfits you should choose, and the lifestyle that you should adopt. Be open and talk about this condition without the fear of any stigma around you.

  • Start Treatment

Hyperhidrosis has treatment, and you must go for it. Iontophoresis, Botox injections, and antiperspirants are some of the non-surgical solutions.

Let’s come together and end this social stigma around hyperhidrosis forever!
