Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than necessary. Yes, it’s necessary to sweat. Sweating cools the body, which prevents us from overheating. People who have hyperhidrosis, however, sweat when the body does not need cooling.
Sweat from the underarms often soaks through clothes, causing obvious sweat marks. Because the skin is often wet, skin infections can develop.
Underarms soaked and stained with sweat sends an inappropriate message of nervousness, anxiety, and lack of confidence which can induce negative professional and social connotations. Understandably, excessive underarm sweat, odor, and hair are something that can affect your self-esteem and self-confidence on a daily basis.
