I am suffering from excessive sweating in all parts of my body specially in palm, feet,butt, underarm from last 8 years.

PGD IN ULTRAASONOGRAPHY, Non invasive cardiology course, MD - Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Narnaul
Do you sweat more than other people? Does a five-minute workout on the treadmill leave you sopping wet? Do you wipe your hand before every handshake? At the very least, excessive sweating is a hassle. But sometimes heavy sweating is sign of a medical condition. "It's not always easy for the average person to know the difference, says Benjamin Barankin, MD, a dermatologist in Toronto and a member of the American Academy of Dermatology. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be a warning sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection. Excessive sweating is also more common in people who are overweight or out of shape. The good news is that most cases of excessive sweating are harmless. If you are worried about how much you sweat, here's information to help you decide if you should see a doctor for a medical diagnosis. What Is Excessive Sweating? If you just sweat more than other people when it's hot or you're exerting yourself, that's not usually a sign of trouble. Sweating is a normal reaction when your body's working harder and needs to cool itself down. "There are natural variations in how people sweat, just as there are variations in other bodily functions, says Dee Anna Glaser, MD, vice chair of the dermatology department at St. Louis University and president of the International Hyperhidrosis Society. "Some people start sweating more easily than others. True excessive sweating goes beyond the normal physical need to sweat. If you have hyperhidrosis, you may sweat heavily for no reason -- when it's not appropriate to the circumstances. "Let's say that the temperature is mild, and you're not anxious, and you don't have a fever, and you're just watching a movie with your family, says Glaser. "If you're sitting there sweating profusely, that's not normal. Barankin says that there are two basic types of excessive sweating: localized hyperhidrosis and generalized hyperhidrosis. Localized Sweating: Primary Focal Hyperhidrosis The most common cause of excessive sweating is called primary focal hyperhidrosis. This form of hyperhidrosis affects about 1% to 3% of the population, and usually starts in childhood or adolescence. Primary focal hyperhidrosis does not cause illness. Basically, you just sweat excessively. Although it is a medical condition, it's not a sign of disease or a drug interaction. People who have it are otherwise healthy. The symptoms of primary focal hyperhidrosis are fairly specific. It's called focal or localized because it only affects specific parts of the body, such as the underarms, groin, head, face, hands, or feet. Symptoms also tend to be symmetrical, occurring on both sides equally. Why does it happen? Experts aren't sure, but primary focal hyperhidrosis seems to stem from a minor malfunction in the nervous system. There's some evidence that it could run in families. While primary focal hyperhidrosis isn't medically risky, it can cause problems in your life. "Primary focal hyperhidrosis can really interfere with your quality of life, Glaser says. Some people are merely inconvenienced by excessive sweating. Others are so embarrassed that they limit their social and work life in harmful ways. Generalized Sweating: Secondary General Hyperhidrosis This less common form of hyperhidrosis causes sweating all over the body -- not just on the hands or feet. Secondary general hyperhidrosis is also more serious medically. It's called secondary because it's being caused by something else, such as an underlying health condition. One telltale sign of secondary hyperhidrosis is excessive generalized sweating at night. What can trigger secondary general hyperhidrosis? There are many possibilities, including a number of different medical conditions and diseases. They include: Menopause Pregnancy Thyroid problems Diabetes Alcoholism Infectious diseases like tuberculosis Parkinson's disease Rheumatoid arthritis Stroke Heart failure Cancers like leukemia and lymphoma What about anxiety? People who are anxious -- or have actual anxiety disorders -- may sweat more than others. But experts say that anxious sweating isn't the same as hyperhidrosis. (In some people, however, the two conditions can occur at the same time.) Medications can also cause general excessive sweating. Medications that can cause sweating include: Some psychiatric drugs Some blood pressure medications Some medicines for dry mouth Some antibiotics Some supplements Excessive Sweating: Signs You Should See the Doctor Should you see a doctor about your excessive sweating? Yes, if you have these symptoms: Night sweats: if you're waking up in a cold sweat or you find your pillowcase and sheets are damp in the morning. Generalized sweating: if you're sweating all over your body, and not just from your head, face, underarms, groin, hands, or feet. Asymmetrical sweating: if you notice that you're only sweating from one side of your body, like one armpit. Sudden changes: if your sweating has suddenly gotten worse. Late onset: if you develop excessive sweating when you're middle-aged or older. The more common primary focal hyperhidrosis usually starts in teenagers and young adults. Symptoms after medication changes: if an outbreak of excessive sweating started up after you began a new drug. Sweating accompanied by other symptoms, like fatigue, insomnia, increased thirst, increased urination, or cough. Even if you don't have those symptoms, if excessive sweating is bothering you or interfering with your life, talk to your doctor. Remember to bring along a list of all the drugs you take, including over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Your doctor may want to check your medications and run some tests. Treating Excessive Sweating While there is no cure for primary focal hyperhidrosis, there are ways to help control the symptoms. They include: Antiperspirants. Special over-the-counter or prescription sprays, lotions, and roll-ons can help control symptoms. Iontophoresis. This treatment uses low-level electrical impulses to temporarily disable the sweat glands. Medications. Some drugs can stop the sweat glands from kicking into action. Botox. Injections of Botox can temporarily stop the nerves from triggering excessive sweating. It is approved for treatment of excessive underarm sweating. Surgery. One approach is to cut a nerve in the chest that triggers excessive sweating. Another is to surgically remove some of the sweat glands. Secondary hyperhidrosis can often be treated too, although the right approach depends on the condition causing it. For instance, hyperhidrosis caused by an overactive thyroid may be resolved by treating the thyroid with medication or surgery. Excessive sweating caused by diabetes may disappear once glucose levels are under control. If a medication is causing your excessive sweating, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different drug. Sometimes, the underlying cause of hyperhidrosis can't be cured. Or you might really need a medicine that's causing excessive sweating as a side effect. However, if that's the case, there are still things you can do, Glaser says. "We try to just treat the symptom even when we can't cure the underlying disease, says Glaser. She says that many of the same treatments for primary focal hyperhidrosis work quite well in these cases. They include topical treatments, oral drugs, and Botox. Getting Help for Excessive Sweating Experts say that excessive sweating is something that people don't take seriously enough. Many ignore their symptoms for months, years, and sometimes decades. That's a bad idea for a couple of reasons.

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) - How You Can Manage it With Home Remedies?

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) - How You Can Manage it With Home Remedies?

Urinary tract infections (UTIs), which are infections anywhere along the urinary tract including the bladder and kidneys are on the most common infections in women. These infections can be caused by poor hygiene, impaired immune function, the overuse of antibiotics and the use of spermicides. The most common cause, accounting for about 90 percent of all cases, is the transfer of E. coli bacteria from the intestinal tract to the urinary tract.

Fortunately, there are a few methods of natural treatment and prevention that are drug free and prescription free and more than are effective as well. Go Natural!

Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Indian Gooseberry is rich in vitamin C which in turn inhibits the growth of bacteria

  • Take a cup of water.
  • Add one teaspoon of Indian gooseberry (amla) powder and one teaspoon of turmeric powder.
  • Boil the solution until half the water evaporates.
  • Drink the residue three times a day for three to five days.

You can also eat more fruits like lemons, oranges, bananas, guava, kiwi, melon, raspberries, tomatoes, and papaya that contain a good amount of Vitamin C.

Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is a rich source of enzymes, potassium and other useful minerals that can prevent the bacteria that cause UTIs from multiplying or growing. Those suffering from UTIs can use apple cider vinegar as 

  • Natural antibiotic to treat the infection.
  • Add two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. You can also add lemon juice and sweeten with honey. Mix it well.
  • Drink this two times a day for a few days

Baking Soda
Baking soda will raise the acid-base balance of acidic urine and give you relief from the pain. Neutralizing the acidity in the urine also will help speed up recovery. Simply add one teaspoon of baking soda to a glass of water and drink it once or twice a day.

Blueberries
Blueberries have bacteria-inhibiting properties that can help in the treatment of UTIs. The antioxidants present in blueberries are good for the immune system, and they prevent growth of bacteria that causes UTIs.

  • You can add some fresh blueberries to your favorite cereal and have it for breakfast.
  • You can also make fresh blueberry juice and have it daily, in the morning and at night for quick results. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
