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!
