Blurb about it!

Lymphocytic thyroiditis, also known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, is an autoimmune disorder that involves chronic inflammation of the thyroid. It is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the US. This condition usually runs in families. It tends to afflict middle aged women most frequently, but can come up at any age, and also affects children and men. 

In this article, we break down 5 Signs And Symptoms Of Lymphocytic Thyroiditis:

Symptoms

Everyone does sweat. However, the sweating you might experience during hyperhidrosis is another beast entirely. You will be sweating even while you’re sitting. There’s no need for nervous or awkward encounters here. Hyperhidrosis will make your armpits sweat during the most mundane and simple of tasks. If you have been sweating excessively, be it summer or winters, then you could be experiencing hyperhidrosis. 

Causes 

There are multiple causes for hyperhidrosis:

  1. Bacterial infections that affect your sweat glands. 
  2. Abscesses putting pressure onto your sweat glands
  3. Fungal infections
  4. Drugs
  5. Emotional disturbances affecting your nervous system
  6. Nervous system damage
  7. Some cancers 

Treatment

The treatment of hyperhidrosis depends on how intense the symptoms are, and what is the root cause behind them. Typically, the treatment takes two forms:

Antiperspirant Prescription

This particular mode of treatment is utilized when the root cause is simply an abscess or a minor disturbance to your sweat glands. Some antiperspirants such as glycopyrrolate or aluminum chloride are prescribed, and you will start to feel the difference after a short while. 

Botox

The affected sweat glands are blocked in their place using botox in this treatment. While it may shut them off forever, you will not be sweating excessively anymore.
