How Does Hyperhidrosis Affect Quality of Life? Center for Excessive Sweating Buffalo Niagara and www.HyperhidrosisClinic.com
Wednesday, August 21, 2013

 

 

There are physical, functional, and psychosocial limitations in hyperhidrosis patients according to N Solish (CUTIS in 2006, volume 7).

 

Physical limitations in patients with hyperhidrosis are discomfort related to wet shoes, clothing, staining of shirts, ruined shoes, ruined clothing, irritation, and maceration of skin and body odor.  Dripping sweat from the craniofacial area is also limiting to patients and disturbing to patients as others seem to approach them and ask them if they are having an acute heart condition such as a heart attack.

 

Functional limitations in quality of life (QOL) indicators for hyperhidrosis include difficulty handing paper and paperwork, difficulty handling tools; danger or electrical shock while working with electrical equipment (as an electrician) and in construction work; potential for electric shock during computer programming, design and engineering as well as individuals working in the technology field; need for frequent change of clothing including underwear and pants; dropping objects at work because of slippery hands; limiting leisure activities such as playing with cards, playing musical instruments, knitting; limitations in regards to sports such as ballet, gymnastics, wrestling and so on.

 

Psychosocial impairments and quality of life limitations include embarrassment limited to excessive sweating, sweat marks on clothing, obvious wet feet in patient who are wearing flip-flops; embarrassment when shaking hands in the business world, in social setting, in romantic situations, and in friendships among children and adolescents in school; reluctance to meet new people in the business world and in the social setting; emotional and psychological stress including lack of confidence, depression or anxiety.

What is Apocrine Bromhidrosis? miraDRY at www.EliminateSweating.com and Dr Karamanoukian
Tuesday, August 20, 2013

 

 

Unlike eccrine bromhidrosis, apocrine bromhidrosis is believed to be more common in dark skinned individuals.  Epidemiologic studies have shown that individual of African ancestry have the largest and most active apocrine glands based on the histological or pathological sections of their skin. 

 

Apocrine bromhidrosis is believed to be associated with a positive family history of hyerhidrosis in some ethnic groups, such as in Asians.  Apocrine bromhidrosis occurs typically after puberty and is more common in men than women.  The higher likelihood  that apocrine bromhidrosis is more common in men is probably related to a greater number of apocrine gland activity in men. 

 

The most common types of bacteria found in patients with apocrine bromhidrosis are the Corynebacterium species.  Corynebacteria produce the fatty acid breakdown products that are perceived as pungent, rancid and musty by individuals around the patient who is having this brromhidrosis.

 

The apocrine glands are limited primarily in the underarms, breast region and groin. Apocrine sweat is odorless until it interacts with bacteria on the skin. Once the bacteria act on the oily secretions, they produce ammonia and fatty acids as byproduct.  These are the agents that cause the offensive odor in bromhidrosis.

Prevalence of Hyperhidrosis in the U.S., Israel, China and Vietnam - Center for Excessive Sweating in Buffalo Niagara is a Center of Excellence for Hyperhidrosis
Friday, August 16, 2013

 

 

Data regarding the prevalence of hyperhidrosis varies substantially in different ethnic groups and from country to country. The reasons for this are that the definition of hyperhidrosis is clinical - i.e., is the sweating 'normal' or 'bad enough to be considered excessive' - this is not always clear, leading some studies to underestimate its prevalence.  Many affected individuals do not seek medical treatment or medical attention for this condition because they think excessive sweating is a “normal” condition.

 

The prevalence also varies based on the location of hyperhidrosis (axillary, palmoplantar or craniofacial) and the type of hyperhidrosis (primary versus secondary).

  

Studies are varied regarding the prevalence of hyperhidrosis in different countries and this has ranged in the 1% range in Israel. In the United States, the prevalence of hyperhidrosis in the overall population is in the 3 – 4 % range. In Asian countries such as China and Vietnam, the prevalence of hyperhidrosis is approximately 4.5%.

 

In summary, the range of hyperhidrosis or the prevalence of hyperhidrosis around the world is somewhere between 1% - 4.5% of the general population.

 

To be evaluated or treated for hyperhidrosis contact Hratch Karamanoukian  MD FACS at the Center for Excessive Sweating.  Dr. Karamanoukian is a Director of the Center for Excessive Sweating, a National Center of Excellence for Hyperhidrosis.  Contact him for consutation by calling 716-839-3638 or go to www.EliminateSweating.com.
