Treatment for excessive underarm sweating.
Axillary hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating of the underarm. In many cases it is accompanied by palmar hyperhidrosis or sweaty palms. Excessive armpit sweating is associated with over activity of the sympathetic nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Excessive sweating may occur with or without stress or anxiety.
Problems with axillary hyperhidrosis are mostly social ones. The mechanism of sweating is involuntary and is not under one’s self control.
