Palmar Hyperhidrosis / sweaty palms

Hand sweating is one of the common issues faced by most people. Medically called palmar hyperhidrosis, sweaty palms happens when there is profuse perspiration in a person’s hand. For the severe cases, sweat might even be seen practically dripping down the person’s hands.

Palmar hyperhidrosis also has adverse impact on the social, professional, athletic, sexual and emotional aspect of their lives. This condition can be very embarrassing, especially since shaking hands is one of the common customs in various parts of the world.

Other issues that can be caused by hand sweating include smearing of ink when writing as well as being uncomfortable when using electronic gadgets like computer keyboard and pianos. Hand swearing can even affect the career of a person. For instance, a cop with sweaty hands might accidentally drop his gun during those times when it is critically needed, or a cashier might fail to count money fast.

Often individuals with palmar hyperhidrosis carry a towel or handkerchief in their hands. Hands can become exceedingly cold, clammy and wet from excessive sweating. Other symptoms of palmar hyperhidrosis are:

  • Difficulty grasping objects
  • Difficulty holding a pen, running ink
  • Papers becoming wet in their hands
  • Cold, cool hands
  • Bluish, purplish discoloration of hands
  • Wiping hands constantly
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Difficulty handling paper

Good thing that there are now numerous ways for treating hand sweating.

There are a couple of natural remedies that can cure palmar hyperhidrosis. There are also over the counter antiperspirants that can be used by those who have mild palmar hyperhidrosis. However for those suffering for more severe conditions ETS is known to be one of the most effective ways to treat them.

People with excessive sweating constantly struggle with this problem throughout their lives. Anxiety can accumulate when one fears embarrassment from excessive sweating or facial blushing. Ultimately one’s career choices and relationships can suffer because of a condition one has little if any control over.
