Published by Megan Cameron on

Summer is an exciting time for most people. With warmer temperatures, outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and picnics become more inviting. And with the change in season comes a spike in temperature that can be uncomfortable for those of us who sweat excessively. Sweating is our body’s natural cooling mechanism, but for some people sweating causes them anxiety and embarrassment. But how do you survive the summer heat if you sweat excessively? Read on to learn more about hyperhidrosis and how it can impact your life this season…

If you have hyperhidrosis, you may be longing for the unbearable heat of summer to pass. But while the seasons are changing, so is the condition. With higher humidity levels and more frequent thunderstorms comes an increase in excessive sweating. As a result, your body will likely overproduce sweat which can lead to odor and skin irritation issues. These conditions make it difficult for people with hyperhidrosis to enjoy their summer activities without causing embarrassment or discomfort. But there’s hope!

There are many ways you can decrease your chances of experiencing these problems this summer, including:

– Using medication before summer activities

– Wearing lightweight clothes that allow air to circulate

– Sipping water frequently during outdoor activities

– Keeping yourself hydrated

– Using fans nearby when outdoors

– Going for cool showers after exercising

– Replacing showering with washing your hands with cold water

Fighting hyperhidrosis can feel like a long, uphill battle. Remember, the key is to be positive and motivated.
