28 thoughts on “Causes Of Excessive Sweating Hands Feet

  1. What can cause the following symptoms? (hair loss, cold hands, feet, joint pain, headaches)?
    I’m wondering what can cause the following symptoms:
    hair loss, joint pain, cold hands and feet, headaches, tiredness, excessive sweating, nervousness, mood swings.

    I’m a 21 year old female within normal weight and have experienced the above symptoms regularly.
    I plan on consulting my doctor; I’m just wondering if anyone else has experienced the same symptoms and been diagnosed.

    • Sounds like a thyroid issue. You need to get your thyroid function checked. It’s a simple blood test.

  2. How can I stop my feet and hands from sweating so much?
    For some strange reason, my feet and hands are constantly sweaty – no, it’s not because of the heat (it’s actually not even that hot for Toronto this year) – they just sweat for no reason. This is really annoying me because a) I don’t like the feeling and b) I get itchy as a result of being sweaty.

    So how can I stop the sweating?

    • Hi

      Excessive sweating is a common problem that more than 3% of the population faced with. It is not only a cause of embarrassment for the individual, excessive sweating can also create different problems with someone’s lifestyle as well.

      However there are some specific methods that can help you to avoid your excessive sweating.
      here are some tips that were helpful for me to avoid excessive sweating:

      Keep Away From Sugar

      having high sugar level in the blood produces hyper activity and anxiety that can easily produce excessive stress, also meaning excessive sweating.

      Avoid Alcohol

      Drinking drinks with Alcohol causes the dilatation of blood vessels that result in an increase in body temperature and therefore excessive sweat.

      Don’t Eat Spicy Foods:

      Spicy foods are similar to alcohol, it makes the heart pumps more blood and therefore the body, to regulate itself produces sweat.

      Choose The Right Cloths:

      Don’t over dress, and in summer or any other hot weather don’t wear synthetic fibers. Choose breathing fabrics like cotton. This will ventilate your body and void any accumulation of sweat.

      Stop That Caffeine:

      Caffeine is a stimulant that increases your anxiety. Caffeine could be found in coffee and other soda drinks.

      Stop Smoking:

      Smoking is also a vessel dilator just like alcohol.

      Learn Yoga or Meditation:

      A common cause for excessive sweating is stress. To avoid or reduce stress you must learn how to control it. Your best way to control is by learning meditation or yoga techniques. Mastering those can make a huge impact on your life.

      Besides these tips there are also many products and solutions for excessive sweating like botox, Acupuncture and Hypnosis.
      Anyhow, there are two main problems with these solutions:

      *Many of them won’t work for most of the people.
      *Most of them are very expensive.

      There are very few products that actually work and can help you to stop your excessive sweating in less than one month.

  3. Can anxiety cause excessive sweating & chills? How can it be treated?
    I have severe anxiety and I am always anxious. My anxiety causes excessive sweating and chills. One minute I will be hot and sweating like a pig, and than I will be freezing cold. Even when I’m freezing cold my hands will still be clammy and sweaty, along with my feet. It is so gross and unbearable. This happens daily. How can this be treated? Are there any medications that can treat this problem?

    • it sounds like you have an anxiety disorder. these could be attacks and you should go to a psychologist and be diagnosed. if you do have this disorder it can be treated through counseling and also through medication . i would try counseling first becuase that is going to the root of the problem and medication is not always good for you. it also could be panic disorder which can be hereditary

    • Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life.
      Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins romance, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.
      What is the cause of hyperhidrosis?
      Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive sweating, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all the time, regardless of their mood or the weather.

      Other causes:
      - Alcohol
      - Caffeine
      - Cancer
      - Certain medicines, including thyroid hormone, morphine, drugs to reduce fevers, and medicines to treat mental disorders
      - Emotional or stressful situations (anxiety)
      - Exercise
      - Fever
      - Infection
      - Low blood sugar
      - Menopause
      - Overactive thyroid gland
      - Spicy foods (known as “gustatory sweating”)
      - Warm temperatures
      - Withdrawal from alcohol or narcotic pain killers

      What is the treatment for hyperhidrosis?
      Through a systematic evaluation of causes and triggers of excessive sweating, followed by a judicious, stepwise approach to treatment, many people with this annoying disorder can achieve good results and improved quality of life.

      The approach to treating hyperhidrosis generally proceeds as follows:
      - Over-the-counter antiperspirants — usually tried first because they are readily available. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride (for example, Certain-Dri) may be more effective when other antiperspirants have failed
      - Prescription strength antiperspirants — those containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate
      - Iontophoresis — a device which passes direct electricity through the skin using tap water
      - Oral medications — ones called anticholinergics which reduce sweating
      - Botox (botulinum toxin) — recently approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating
      - Surgery — cervical sympathectomy, as a last resort

  6. Is it still called exercise even if you barely sweat from your hands and feet?
    I do taekwondo, but usually i dont sweat as much, do i still burn calories?

    • Don’t judge the effectiveness of your exercise routine by the amount of sweating in your hands and feet. Some people sweat a lot in their palms even when they’re just sitting. This is more a function of genetics or nervous anxiety than it is of exercising hard.

      Why do some people sweat more than others? Excessive sweating is a condition known as hyperhidrosis. According to Dr. Andrade, “Hyperhidrosis is sweating in excess of what is necessary to maintain body temperature. Generally speaking, the condition has no cause, although certain diseases or disorders can contribute to having hyperhidrosis. People seek treatment, both non-surgical and surgical, for hyperhidrosis when it has a significant impact on their quality of life.”

      What is the treatment for hyperhidrosis?

      Over-the-counter antiperspirants — usually tried first because they are readily available. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride (for example, Certain-Dri) may be more effective when other antiperspirants have failed

      Botox (botulinum toxin) — recently approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating
      Surgery — cervical sympathectomy, as a last resort

      Aluminum chloride hexahydrate
      When regular antiperspirants fail, as they often do, to remedy hyperhidrosis most doctors start by recommending aluminum chloride hexahydrate (Drysol), a prescription-strength version of aluminum chloride. It is applied just before bedtime seven to 10 nights in a row, then roughly once a week thereafter to maintain improvement. This treatment works reasonably well for many patients whose problem is excessive underarm sweating, but is not satisfactory for most of those with palm and sole sweating.
      The main side effect with Drysol is irritation, which can sometimes, but not always, be overcome by reducing the frequency of use or applying antiinflammatory medications such as lotions containing hydrocortisone.
      Iontophoresis
      Iontophoresis was introduced over 50 years ago as a treatment for excessive sweating. Its exact mechanism of action is still unclear. The procedure uses water to conduct an electric current to the skin which combats production of sweat. Current is applied typically for 10-20 minutes per session, initially with two to three sessions per week followed by a maintenance program of treatments at one- to three-week intervals, depending upon the patient’s response. Iontophoresis treatments sound potentially painful but, in fact, they are not.
      Patients purchase devices for this treatment through a doctor’s prescription. Medical insurers sometimes cover the cost.
      Oral Medications
      Oral anticholinergic medications such as glycopyrrolate (Robinul) are not commonly used for this condition, because in order to work they often produce side-effects like dry mouth and blurred vision.
      Botox
      Botulinum toxin (Botox), a muscle poison much in the news as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles, has actually been used in many areas of medicine for some time, such as in the treatment of muscle spasms, and certain types of headaches. Its latest medical niche is the treatment of excessive underarm sweating.
      Fifty (50) units of Botox are injected into roughly 20 spots in each armpit. This may produce approximately six months of relief from sweating. The injections are uncomfortable, but use of a very small injection needle makes them tolerable.
      Now that this treatment has received FDA approval, many health insurers are providing coverage for the injections and the Botox itself, which is quite costly.
      Currently, the FDA has not approved Botox for treating sweating of the palms and soles of the feet, though some physicians are administering it as an off-label use, reportedly with success. Palm injections cause more pain, requiring nerve blocks to numb the hands in order to make the injections comfortable.
      Surgery
      Thoracic sympathectomy is surgical interruption of the sympathetic nerves responsible for sweating. Sympathectomy is an operation intended to destroy part of the nerve supply to the sweat glands in the skin. The surgeon inserts a special endoscopic instrument into the chest between two ribs just below the armpit. The lung is briefly deflated to better visualize and destroy the nerves. Sympathectomy is both effective and risky. Even with newer endoscopic techniques, the complications can include excessive sweating in other parts of the body and lung and nerve problems. As many of these complications are serious and not reversible, this option is rarely used, and then only as a last resort.

  8. What can i do for my over sweating armpits?
    Okay, so i have over sweating armpits and i’ve tried Certain Dri, and any deoderents/ anti-perisperants dont work for me. Im not sure that i wanna do botox cuz im only 13. P;ease give some suggestions

    • Excessive sweating, specially in armpits is called Hyperhidrosis . Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat. People with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature. About 1 person in every 200 (0.5%) has some form of hyperhidrosis. It usually starts during the teenage years or early 20s.Many things can trigger normal sweating and the same do cause hyperhidrosis. Examples are exercise, stress or anxiety, alcohol, coffee, smoking, hot or spicy food and strong emotions.

      Remedy-
      Simple measures you can take are:
      Cool clothing. Choose clothes made from natural fibres as they absorb sweat. Consider having a change of clothing available during the day.
      Keep your work environment cool and well aired.
      Avoid the foods and drinks that trigger sweating.
      If stress causes your hyperhidrosis then think how you can reduce those situations.
      Body odour can be prevented by good personal hygiene (like frequent showers).

      Treatments-
      There are several treatments for hyperhidrosis:

      Aluminium Chloride is the active ingredient of some anti-perspirants. In strong solutions, it works well on sweating armpits. It lasts for only 48 Hours but it is usually applied daily.

      Iontophoresis is a technique that passes a weak electrical current through a water bath. The area affected by sweating is immersed in the water and electrically charged particles block the activity of sweat glands. The effects last for 3-4 days and are best used on hands and feet.

      Relaxation, hypnosis, counselling or acupuncture can be helpful but expensive. They are not generally available as an NHS treatment.

      Drugs.
      Antimuscarininc drugs reduce the activity of the nerves that supply the sweat glands. The problem is they affect all the nerves in the body and can cause many side effects like a dry mouth, drowsiness and constipation.

      Beta-blocker drugs can be used if the sweating is associated with stress and anxiety-.

  9. I have profuse sweating in my palms and feet how to cure it?
    Profuse sweating in palms & feet hinder my activities.It has been congenital.How to get cured of this?

    • Choose shoes and socks made of natural materials – Shoes made of natural materials, such as leather, can help prevent sweaty feet by allowing your feet to breathe.
      #
      Rotate your shoes – Shoes won’t completely dry overnight, so try not to wear the same pair two days in a row if you have trouble with sweaty feet.
      #
      Wear the right socks – Cotton and wool socks help keep your feet dry because they absorb moisture. When you’re active, moisture-wicking athletic socks are a good choice. Whenever possible, try walking barefoot or open shoes. This helps cool the entire body, and prevents sweating from the feet.
      #
      Change your socks often – Change socks or hose once or twice a day, drying your feet thoroughly each time. Women may prefer pantyhose with cotton soles.

      Generally, OTC antiperspirants are used for profuse sweating or hyperhidrosis. The most effective are those that contain aluminium chlorohydrate. But, such preparations may themselves cause irritation. Inflammation and infection can result from the combined effect of shaving and chemicals.

      There are also conventional oral medications for controlling sweating, but again unpleasant side effects may occur and they should be used only for extreme cases. These work by drying bodily secretions, and tend to come with unwanted side-effects such as dry mouth, blurry vision, dizziness and cardiovascular concerns. As a last resort, there are surgical procedures to control perspiration, but they are usually reserved for cases resistant to all other form of treatment.

      Natural Remedies

      Many people are now turning to natural remedies as a first step towards treating excessive sweating caused by overactive sweat glands present all over the body, especially UNDERARM, FACE, HEAD, HANDS AND BACK. There are a number of natural ingredients that can help reduce sweating and treat some of the underlying causes.

      Homeopathic ingredients such as Lupulus, Castoreum and Argentum Nitricum help to address sweating, especially when related to nervousness, panic, anxiety, or obsessive thoughts & reduce excessive sweating and clamminess. They help to control fluid levels in the body, while also helping to control body odor which commonly accompanies excessive sweating.

  11. How do you deal with really sweaty feet?
    My feet sweat alot and that makes it hard for me to wear some sandals. How do would you deal with this problem?

    • Hyperhidrosis is a fairly common disorder shared by millions across the world. By definition, Hyperhidrosis is the excessive sweating of the head, face, hands, feet and armpits no matter the temperature or conditions.

      The sweating is erratic, unpredictable and uncontrollable. You do have some options.

      To stop the excessive sweating try:

      1. Drysol

      Drysol is a prescription deodorant that works wonders for underarm, hand and foot sweating. Apply it to your hands, feet, armpits or anywhere else you sweat at night before bed. You only need to apply it once a day – it’s not like regular deodorant. This stuff is Clinical Strength. Beware of irritation with Drysol. You may have to take a day or two off from this treatment if your skin gets too dry, sensative or red with a rash.

      2. Drink more water to lower your body temperature.

      A lot of people are confused by this solution. They think if they drink more water, it will give them that much more fluid to sweat out. This is totally incorrect. Drinking more water cools your core temperature and will alleviate some of the excessive sweating. Of course now you’ll need to worry about all those bathroom breaks. :)

      3. Drink Green Tea or Sage Tea at night

      Tea contains an astringent property which will dry out oils and prevent excess moister from escaping the skin. It essentially drys you from the inside out.

      In addition to helping your complexion, green tea will neutralize many of the toxins that create the pungent odor in sweat. By the way, that odor is caused by bacteria that treats your sweat as a breeding ground. Gross!

      4. Try Certain Dri (non-prescription deodorant)

      You can buy this one at most pharmacies. Certain dry is a little less abrasive than Drysol so you won’t need to worry as much about irritation. It is however a little less strong. You’ll want to gauge your level of Hyperhidrosis by first trying Certain Dri. If your sweating continues, upgrade to Drysol and that should do the trick.

      5. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine

      Don’t underestimate the power of your diet. Onions, Garlic, Curry, Coffee and a whole host of other ingredients are powerful triggers for hyperhidrosis sweating. Cut out some of these cultprits and see gradual but noticeable results. Add leafy greens and tea into your diet for a positive effect on sweating. Changing your diet will really cut out the spontaneous sweating from your daily lunch breaks.

      6. Try Iontophoresis treatments.

      This is more of a phase 3 solution. Try the clinical deodorants and diet fixes first. However, there is a treatment called Iontophoresis where you place your hands and feet into bowls or plates. The plates are filled with mineral water. Connected to the plates is an Iontophoresis electromagnetic device. Gentle electic pulses are distributed through mineral water. The minerals bond and temporarily change the nature of your sweat pores to block the sweat. This treatment works well. You can learn about it through the Source link I’ve provided below.

      7. Try a Sage Tea Soak

      There’s something called a Sage Tea solution what you do is…
      a. Buy Sage Tea from your supermarket
      b. Fill a large bowl with room temperature water
      c. Put the sage tea bags in the bowl and let the tea dissolve a bit.
      d. soak your hands for 15 minutes in the bowl.

      Sage Tea will act as an astringent to dry the skin and prevent excessive sweating for many days to follow.

      Don’t just do this soak one day. Do it everyday for 5 days straight (15 minutes at a time) and you’ll see great results.

      If your hands tan from the tea, just wash them in the sink with antibacterial soap. The residue will come off easily.

      8. ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery)

      If the sweating is bad enough, some people will opt towards ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery). This is, however, a LAST resort. I recommend you try everything else possible before opting towards surgery. You can speak with your Dermatologist to find out more.

  12. Can cardio workouts help control daytime sweating?
    I’ve been sweating profusely in the last couple months. It is pretty humid here, but this is out of control and embarrassing. I need to be doing more cardio, but I was wondering if burning some energy and sweat in this way might relieve some of the daytime sweating at work and walking around.

    What do you think?

    • No really, if you want to control sweating try the following…

      8. ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery)

      If the sweating is bad enough, some people will opt towards ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery).

      This is, however, a LAST resort. I recommend you try everything else possible before opting towards surgery. You can speak with your Dermatologist to find out more.

  13. Why do I have diabetic-like symptoms but test shows negative?
    I have experienced dryness, and excessive sweating on the palms and feet lately…This happened when I started exercising/running earlier this Summer and I lost about 10lbs….What is causing this?

    Why are my palms and feet sweating sooo much? Again this recently happened when I decided to exercise and run everyday….But I sweat a lot now when I am just watching TV, or on the computer.

    Please Help! Thanks.

  14. Is getting surgery the only way to get rid of excessive sweat?
    I’ve always had sweaty hands/feet. I can’t hold hands with guys cause it just gets gross.
    I’m not overweight, I’m perfectly healthy (I think? :D), it’s not due to nervousness or anxiety (though it does get worse).
    My older sister (age 28) has it as well. But she hasn’t gotten surgery. Her doctor told me to get it (after shaking my hand LOL).
    Is surgery the only way to get rid of it? Or are there natural remedies? Oh and is the surgery risky?

    • I’m one of the founders on http://www.verysweatybetty.com and it does sound as though you have Primary Palmar (hand) and Plantar (feet) Hyperhidrosis. We always advise the same thing initially – please do see your doctor for a diagnosis as soon as you can, Secondary Hyperhidrosis can mean there is something serious going on.

      Please come to http://www.verysweatybetty.com and message me, I’d be more than happy to help you devise an effective strategy for your sweating. I’ve had Primary Generalised Hyperhidrosis all my life and I’m 44 now so I’m sure I can help you. We’re also on facebook, twitter and youtube.

      The good news is that I can help you discover products you can try to help with both your hands and feet. Surgery wouldn’t help your feet and it’s very likely to cause you to sweat in other places. One of our forum members had the surgery last June for her sweaty hands, by August she was sweating all over her back and legs. ETS (Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy) is dangerous and a huge gamble. There are statistics to show that ONLY 5% of people who have the surgery have no negative side effects and success with stopping the sweat.

      The bad news is that there is no cure for Hyperhidrosis and we are a long way off finding one. Scientists are just beginning to understand which gene it is that causes the excessive sweating. . If there was a cure, doctors would know about it and so would we, it wouldn’t be written exclusively in an expensive ebook or hidden in a bottle of supplements – not that it’s a good idea to buy supplements over the internet anyway, not unless it’s from a reputable company like Holland & Barratt. All the information you need is to be found for free on the internet.

      Finally, Hyperhidrosis is a skin disease and it’s estimated that at least 3% of the world’s population is affected in some way. This means that out of every 100 people you know, three of them will suffer. You might not know who they are because we become masters of disguise and often hide our sweating very effectively.
