What Causes Excessive Sweating? Face, Underarms and More

Spot on! The answer, if it exists, could be somewhat grave or straight forward. I realize you would like to sort this out, and that's what I'm here to do.

First of all, you must understand that there are a few different patterns of excessive sweating. Maybe you only contend with sweating of the armpits. Or you could perspire all over. Without fail. Like a friggin' machine. Or maybe it's just emanating from your face. But, the key is to realise that - no matter where the flood of perspiration occurs - if it's happening when you're cool, calm and collected, it's NOT normal.

Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis

This is localized perspiration. It occurs in particular places on your body, such as the armpits, hands, feet or head.
A few notes:
  • Primary focal hyperhidrosis won't get you sick. 
  • It doesn't imply you're ill.
  • You're likely not suffering from something like a medication interaction.
It can happen in any one of these places: head, groin, armpits, face, feet or hands.

Why does it happen? Nobody knows. It could just be a somewhat off-tune nervous system. Or possibly you inherited it. However it started and even if it doesn't bespeak a serious medical issue excessive localized sweating is a disaster for those of us who endure it. Believe me. I've been there.

Secondary Generalised Hyperhidrosis

This is generalised excessive sweating head to foot. Why is it "secondary?" Because something else is triggering it - and that could be serious. This is particularly true if you are perspiring at night.
Below are a number of possible causes:
  • Alcoholism 
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Coronary trouble
  • Infectious diseases
  • Menopause
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Pregnancy
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Thyroid problems
If you have any reason to believe it's one of these things, I would suggest that you consult a doctor as quickly as possible.

This could be caused by medications, as well, including:
  • Antibiotics 
  • Blood pressure medications
  • medicines for dry mouth
  • Psychiatric medications
  • Supplements
So, that's the story. Some potential sources for your excessive perspiration from the head, underarms, feet or anywhere else. If you think it could be a grave medical condition, then your next step is to contact your doctor. If you're one of the lucky few who might just have a little primary focal hyperhidrosis, then you could do a little online investigation and see if you can find a solution.
