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.
