Understanding Excessive Teenage Sweating

Mum, Dad, SWEAT GUARD can help you resolve two of those issues. Managing excessive sweating and body odour, with our effective range. But first lets understand hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating, to better help and support your teen.
Emotional stress like exam pressure can increase excessive sweating.

Hormonal Changes and Sweating

One primary cause of excessive sweating in teens is hormonal changes during puberty. Teenagers' bodies are going through extreme changes. Producing excessive hormones unsettles the fine balance of the body. These excessive hormones can stimulate the sweat glands and lead to increased perspiration.
Emotional stress can be another trigger. HELLO, EXAMS!

Emotional Stress and Sweating

Teens often experience heightened emotions and stressors. Particularly when it comes to school, relationships, and personal identity. These can activate the body’s sweat response. 


Who doesn't have a sweat response when exams are hanging over your head?


Some medical conditions can contribute to excessive sweating in teenagers. These include anxiety disorders or thyroid issues.

Environmental factors like hot weather and physical activity can make sweating worse. Wearing tight, impractical or non-breathable clothing can also exacerbate sweat production. Being aware of these triggers you can help your teens, if they will let you.


What are the solutions for teenagers, as they combat excessive sweating?


Practical Tips for Managing Teenage Sweating

There is a range of practical tips and techniques to help your teenager cope with excessive sweating:

  • Encourage good hygiene practices. A daily shower using an antibacterial soap to keep the skin clean and minimize odour, is critical. Try the SWEAT GUARD antibacterial deodorant soap. If a bar of soap is not what your teen uses, try our deodorant body wash, to combat odour and nourish the skin.
