Excessive or heavy sweating is referred to as Hyperhidrosis and for those that suffer with this it can have a big impact on their lives causing embarrassment, frustration and stress.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition in which a person sweats excessively. The sweating may affect the whole of your body, or it may only affect certain areas including armpits and hands

Advise from the NHS includes wearing loose-fitting clothes to minimise the signs of sweating or to avoid certain materials or tight clothes. Other solutions also include stronger antiperspirants, soap substitutes and powders. However, for those that suffer with Hyperhidrosis, some of the solutions are not practical and result in wanting a longer term or permanent solution.
