Axillary Hyperhidrosis

Excessive underarm sweating is the most common form of hyperhidrosis. See how it affects Brittany.

Nearly half of people living with excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) suffer in silence for years before speaking to a doctor about it. But that doesn’t have to be the case. If you think you might have primary hyperhidrosis, be sure to talk to a dermatologist.

Only a healthcare professional, such as a dermatologist, can diagnose hyperhidrosis.
