Why do you sweat through your dress shirt?


We’ve all been there. Running to a meeting, visiting friends, or simply just walking outside and then, ‘uh oh,' we begin to feel the sweat. We try and cool ourselves but it’s too late, everyone around you can see where you sweat and how much. Your dress shirt certainly doesn’t do you any favors as it absorbs and shows this sweat even more. But why does this happen? Why do we sweat in these situations? Is there ways to avoid this sweaty mess?

 

Stress/Anxiety

Working or being in high pressure environments can trigger stress or anxiety in many individuals. A potential consequence of these sensations may be increased sweating. Increased sweating can escalate or accelerate following an episode of nervousness, anxiety, fear or stress. If this describes you, remember to remove yourself from these situations or lessen the time you are in them. It could lower perspiration and actually contribute to a longer and healthy life!

 

Temperature

This may seem obvious but the temperature around you profoundly impacts your body temperature. In a room that’s too hot? Lower the thermostat. If you are unable to lower the thermostat, bring a mobile/desk fan. Going out to lunch with coworkers? Pick an indoor restaurant. Have you just finished exercising? Give your body a few minutes to cool down.

 

Hyperhydrosis

Nearly 8 million people in the US have some sort of hyperhydrosis or excessive sweating. This medical condition can be characterized by unpredictable or extreme perspiration, commonly it is isolated to underarm sweating. If you believe this describes your condition, you may want to meet with a medical professional.
