While doctors and researchers have noted that excessive sweating can be a symptom of these conditions, you may want to talk to your doctor about complex regional pain syndrome. It has similar symptoms and some research suggests excessive sweating may be more common in that condition.
Several factors could be responsible for our sweating, either on their own or in combination. They include:
- autonomic nervous system dysfunction
- heat sensitivity
- high norepinephrine levels, as a side effect of antidepressants
The only cause that’s “curable” is the medication side effect, and that may not be an attractive option to you if the drug is doing more good than harm.
Your doctor may have ideas about medications that help control sweating.
- Loose powders: Powder on your face may help absorb sweat before you even know it’s there. You can also apply it after drying sweat off of your skin to keep from being shiny.
- Oil-absorbing face wipes can keep you from having greasy-looking skin as well. They’re generally better than napkins or tissues, which work in a pinch but may be worse for your skin as well as less effective.
- Dress shields and sweat pads can help absorb sweat before it soaks through your clothing. For especially heavy sweat, a menstrual pad may work better.
- Sweat-absorbing clothes may also be a good option for you. They can be more expensive, though.
- A hat or ponytail holder can help hide sweat-related hair disasters.
If your sweating isn’t tied to any particular stimulus, you might not be able to keep it from happening. However, if it’s tied to heat—and especially our tendency to become overheated—you may find that some of these things reduce the problem.
- Extra antiperspirant, re-applied a few times during the day, and applied to non-typical places where you tend to sweat a lot may help.
- Taking cooler baths or showers, or running cooler water over your body before you get out, may keep you from getting overheated and sweating more.
- Especially if you tend to be cold a lot, you may frequently find yourself dressed too warmly for the environment. Dressing in layers gives you more temperature-control options.
- Choosing cold drinks over hot ones and avoiding hot foods can help.
One important thing about excessive sweating is making sure you stay hydrated. It’s important to replace both the water and the electrolytes you sweat out.
If you think you need to replace electrolytes but don’t have a sports drink handy, you can get them via supplements or through food.
You should make sure to know the symptoms of dehydration.
