As summertime temperatures and humidity soar, we expect to sweat, especially when we’re engaged in outdoor activities. But for those who suffer from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) no matter what the season, summer only makes matters worse, and sometimes miserably worse.
Sweating is an essential and normal body function, our natural air-conditioning system. Evaporation of sweat helps keep our bodies cool and regulates body temperature. Normally, sweating is triggered by emotional factors (feeling stressed or nervous), physical factors (engaging in strenuous activity), or environmental factors (hot, humid weather).
