Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Underarm Sweat and Odour)


Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating – can be a devastating condition and can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life. At the R Clinic we offer hyperhidrosis treatment which can help by permanently removing sweat glands from the underarm area.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition which causes excessive sweat production. It affects both men and women. One of the most affected areas are the underarms known as axillary hyperhidrosis.

Axillary hyperhidrosis is a common condition affecting up to 3% of Australians. The impact of this condition is often underestimated – it can affect work and social situations and may cause significant psychological distress. Fortunately, effective treatments are readily available to help you stop sweating.

What causes Hyperhidrosis?

Sweating is a normal physiological process that helps the body to regulate its temperature. When we get too hot or exercise, sweat evaporates from the skin and has a cooling effect. Excessive sweating occurs when the nervous system triggers the sweat glands to produce fluid to naturally cool the body, however, the sweat glands become overactive, producing too much fluid resulting in excessive sweat. This can happen with or without the trigger of heat or physical activity. In fact, for most people with hyperhidrosis they sweat for no apparent reason, even sweating when it is cold.
