Excessive Sweating Nearly TRIPLES Anxiety & Depression Risks 

Hyperhidrosis (Hh) affects more than 365 million people worldwide, causing them (us!) to sweat four or five times more than what’s considered “normal,” “natural,” or necessary as a reaction to temperature, exertion, or stress. 

The impacts of this volume of (uncontrollable and unpredictable!) sweating range from:
