Heavy sweating that's not always related to heat or exercise.


Self-care options include using aluminum-based antiperspirants to reduce sweating, bathing daily, and wearing clothing made of natural materials that allow skin to breathe.

When to seek immediate medical care

See a healthcare professional at once for heavy sweating with:

  • Dizziness.
  • Pain in the chest, throat, jaw, arms, shoulders, or throat.
  • Cold skin and a rapid pulse.

When to make a doctor's appointment

Make an appointment to see a healthcare professional if:

  • Sweating disrupts daily routine.
  • Sweating suddenly becomes more heavy.
  • Night sweats occur for no clear reason.
