Excessive underarm sweating

Excessive underarm sweating , sometimes manifesting as wet halo underarms, is the daily or occasional lot of some of us. With these strong temperatures the phenomenon is common. To read the solutions to get rid of it ...

Sweating is normal. The human body is covered with millions of sweat glands secreting sweat, especially in the armpits, forehead, feet and hands. Sweating is an essential physiological process: it regulates body temperature and eliminates mineral salts.

Several factors can trigger perspiration: the rise in temperature (which is clearly the most common), but also stress, fever or hormonal imbalance.

The armpit is an area particularly provided with sweat glands, secreting sweat but also pheromones that play a special role in sexual attraction.
The armpit is located at the bottom of the fold under the arm, not ventilated, place of the body where transpiration macerates, because it can not evaporate. This explains why the armpit is an area often wet and smelly.

However, these bad smells are not related to perspiration itself (which is mainly water), but to the maceration of sweat on the surface of the skin, once it comes in contact with the flora microbial that covers the epidermis.
Here are some explanations and tips to combat this excessive underarm sweating.
