TWO TYPES OF HYPERHIDROSIS

TWO TYPES OF HYPERHIDROSIS


The two most common types of Hyperhidrosis are Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis & Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis.

1. PRIMARY FOCAL HYPERHIDROSIS


Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis (PFH) refers to the excessive perspiration being the medical ailment itself – it is not caused by another medical condition or medication. PFH makes up about 93% of cases and occurs in one of multiple areas of the body (typically underarms, face & head, hands or feet).


WHAT CAUSES IT?


The cause of PFH is not well understood and can affect anybody – even healthy people.It typically starts to rear its ugly head in childhood or adolescence and impacts bothmale & female equally. Sometimes it is grown out of but it could last a lifetime.

2. SECONDARY HYPERHIDROSIS


Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis is the other of the two main types of hyperhidrosis. This type is caused by an underlying medical condition and/or is a side effect of medication. It usually means sweating over large areas of your body and comes on at the beginning of a medical condition or when you start taking a medication. It often results in sweating at night while sleeping.


WHAT CAUSES IT?


The following medical conditions frequently cause secondary hyperhidrosis:

  • Alcoholism 
  • Anxiety 
  • Cancer 
  • Diabetes 

  • Gout 
  • Heart Failure
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Infection

  • Menopause 
  • Nerve Injury
  • Obesity
  • Parkinson’s Disease

  • Pregnancy 
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

CAN THEY BE TREATED?


Yes! Both Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis AND Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis can be treated with ZeroSweat!


ZeroSweat products get down to the deep-rooted issue and stop the sweat (as opposed to just absorbing sweat like the other guys do). 


Simply apply at night, wait 2-3 minutes to let it dry & go to sleep! This allows our unique formula to work while the sweat glands are less active. It’ll travel to the sweat gland and create a block that doesn’t wash off in the morning. In fact, the strength of this product is so powerful that most customers only need to apply once or twice a week!

what is it?


Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive and unpredictable sweating. Millions of people suffer from hyperhidrosis (many – perhaps you – are undiagnosed).While not life-threatening, hyperhidrosis can wreak havoc on your self-esteem and be a strain emotionally.


There are two types of hyperhidrosis: Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis and Secondary Generalized Hydrosis. Learn more about the two main types here.This condition can affect specific (focal) or large (generalized) areas of the body. Let’s break it down by location.

Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis 

Head & Face


Do beads of sweat pool on your scalp or run down your forehead? Is your face constantly glistening with perspiration? If so, you may be suffering from Craniofacial Hyperhidrosis. Being unable to hide it, this type may just win first place as ‘Most Embarrassing.’

Axillary Hyperhidrosis

underarms


Having this type of hyperhidrosis is the pits. The armpits, that is! Uncontrollable, infuriating sweating of your underarm region can stain your clothes, cause discomfort & be plain ol’ humiliating.

Palmar Hyperhidrosis

hands & palms


Ahhh, the most common of them all: extreme, overwhelming sweating of the hands or palms. From ruined paperwork to slippery handshakes, this type compromises your career, education & social life.

Plantar Hyperhidrosis

feet


If you have it, you know the feeling… your feet are so soggy that you fear you might slip right out of your shoes!

Other Hyperhidrosis 

BACK/GROIN/ETC.


Other areas may include your back, groin, chest, thighs, etc. Basically, the excessive sweating can attack any part of your body (ugh!).
