Fast Facts About Excessive Sweating at School

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – It’s back-to-school and sweat’s happening.
But while it’s “normal” to sweat with heat, exertion or anxiety, 4.8 percent of people — students included — experience sweating so excessive it’s a serious medical condition called hyperhidrosis.
To help these youngsters as they return to school, the International Hyperhidrosis Society, a non-profit that helps improve quality-of-life for those living with hyperhidrosis, is debunking excessive sweating myths with facts:
* Children, teens, and young adults can all suffer from hyperhidrosis that’s debilitating and life-altering.
* Hyperhidrosis often first manifests during school-aged years, bringing with it severe embarrassment due to sweat-drenched clothes and damaged school materials.
* Poor academic performance, social isolation, and depression can happen as a result.
* Individuals with hyperhidrosis sweat about 5 times more than what’s considered “normal” because they have overactive sweat glands, NOT because of moods, poor health, or lack of hygiene.
* Kids don’t outgrow hyperhidrosis; they need help to manage it.
* This condition can make basic school activities, such as holding a pencil difficult.
* Hyperhidrosis is as emotionally damaging as severe acne and shouldn’t be ignored.
* Young people with hyperhidrosis can find support, understanding, and treatment — but they need adults to help.
