Why do armpits sweat?

Excessive underarm sweating often becomes a serious problem for many people, especially those who are not particularly helped by deodorants - antiperspirants. Local hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the axillary region can cause problems in the choice of clothes and even develop a sense of self-doubt. Therefore, the desire of people to know why their armpits sweat is understandable. After all, getting rid of excessive sweating is easiest if you eliminate the cause that caused it.

Why do armpits sweat a lot? Let's look at the main causes of local hyperhidrosis of the axillary region:

  • Overheating of the body with increasing air temperature or considerable physical exertion;
  • Vegetative dystonia;
  • Thyroid dysfunction.

As you can see the cause of increased sweating in the armpit, there can be diseases. Therefore, if this area of ​​the body gives you trouble, consult a doctor. A medical examination will determine exactly why armpits are sweating.And if the disease is detected, the doctor will prescribe his timely treatment or prescribe drugs that reduce sweating.

Another cause of sweating armpits is severe nervous stress. During stress, adrenaline is released, causing a sharp increase in sweating of the palms, armpits and feet. But, excessive sweating of the armpit, in itself, is the cause of severe stress. As a result, a vicious circle is formed, which is almost impossible to break without the help of a doctor.
