Why Do I Sweat So Much?


Sweating is a normal and essential function of the body.  In the sweating process, moisture and fatty oils are released through the skin pores which helped to cool the body during physical exertion.  This moisture also helps to lubricate the skin in places like the underarms, upper thighs, and under the breasts, where skin rubs together.

Sweat producing glands are distributed in different concentrations throughout the body.  Concentration of sweat glands are most intense under the armpits, the palms of the hands, and the soles of your feet.  While other parts of your body such as the lower arms and legs have the least concentration.  Along with your sweat glands, oil glands are at work filtering out salts and oily fluids during the whole sweating process.  These oily secretions are what the bacteria on your skin thrive on, and these bacteria are responsible for the distinctive odor of sweat.

Your body will naturally send impulses through the nerves to the sweat glands when necessary.  When you are excited or in a fearful situation your sympathetic nerves trigger signals throughout the body increasing the flow of sweat.  Also, spicy foods and stress will cause a person’s sweat glands to increase in activity.  Genetics and a number of medical conditions and diseases can be causes for over-productive sweat glands.

If you experience excessive sweating that seems abnormal, or unpredictable, you should check with your doctor to determine if you suffer from hyperhidrosis or another medical condition.  You should also be aware that certain medications will cause the body to sweat profusely.  Some cancer treatments, and some HIV treatments are examples of such medications.

If you have often asked yourself  “Why do I sweat so much?” because excessive sweating has caused you embarrassment, then you should take some steps to solve the situation.  There are a number of natural remedies, over-the-counter antiperspirants, electrical devices (ionophoresis), Botox, and as a last resort invasive surgery, that can be decrease or eliminate your excessive sweating problems.
