Center Valley, PA, Oct. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Sweating is necessary and normal to human functioning - until it’s not.
Ground-breaking new podcasts, articles and entries into the Library of Congress shed light on the lives of those living with the rarely-talked-about medical condition of extreme, uncontrollable sweating called hyperhidrosis.
Listen, connect, learn, share.
For most people, perspiration is the body’s air conditioning, keeping us cool and at the temperature our systems need to work and be healthy. For about 4.8% of the population, however, sweating can be extreme, over-reactive, uncontrollable, and unpredictable; leading to social and emotional issues, practical hurdles in daily life, ruined clothing and tech tools, hiding behaviors, and skin health risks. But while this sort of sweating is relatively common (more prevalent than peanut allergies and autism), it’s rarely talked about. In fact, too often, hyperhidrosis is ignored, misdiagnosed or under-treated.
