Sweating While It’s Cold – 5 Common Causes

Now that fall is here and winter is not far behind some people wonder why they sweat the same in the winter as in the summer or spring. This could be a sign of the body behaving abnormally and it’s trying to tell you something. Unusual sweat is no exception.

Below are listed 5 common causes attributed to cold weather sweating.

#1 – Hyperhidrosis (Most Common)

Studies show that about 3 percent of the American population suffer from the condition known as hyperhidrosis. If you sweat excessive regularly on different areas of your body you should check in with a medical professional and see if you fall into that category. People with hyperhidrosis usually lose four or five times as much sweat (that's four or five liters!) in a day as the average person, so it's important you find a way to retain more fluids.

Don't fret if you feel like this might be you! Quality of life doesn't need to be diminished. Chat with your doc and see what they can do for you.

#2 Low Blood Sugar

A lack of glucose in blood levels causes us to produce adrenaline in an attempt to compensate for the lack of nutrition. This happens when you skip meals or have not eaten anything for awhile.  The sympathetic nervous system will switch on, dropping into the "fight or flight" mode — this phenomenon is also known as hypoglycemia. You naturally produce insulin when you're hungry, which prepares the body for digestion; so when it is combined with adrenaline, it can cause our bodies to function in unusual ways.

If you think you have hypoglycemia and its chronic make sure to see a doctor. It also can't hurt to keep some healthy snacks on hand, and see if snacking on them when you're hungry, rather than waiting to eat, makes any difference with your sweating.

#3 Lack Of Oxygen

Not getting enough oxygen from the air around you is a cause of cold perspiration. Check your own breathing the next time you're sweating in the cold — are your breaths deep and smooth, or short and shallow? If every inhalation and exhalation is stunted, that may be a sign that you're not getting enough oxygen. Don't worry much, though. You may just need to move around some more, or perhaps go for a walk to get the blood flowing properly.

It may also have to do with your environment, like the temperature you keep your house, the dryness in the air, or the fact that the thermostat in your office is set far too low. Start by addressing these factors, and if the sweat continues to flow, see your doctor.


#4 Thyroid Problems

One of the thyroid glands job is to release a hormone that controls how the body uses its energy stores; it also regulates its sensitivity to other hormones it comes into contact with. If sweat  constantly in all weather  it might point to thyroid issues, particularly an overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism.

Being constantly sweaty is just the one of the side effects of hyperthyroidism. Having an overactive thyroid can lead to serious problems, like osteoporosis and even heart problems. If you're experiencing other symptoms of hyperthyroidism, like fatigue, sudden weight loss or difficulty sleeping see a doctor. Hyperthyroidism can be controlled through medication.

#5 Side Effects From Medication

Prescriptions — including anti-depressants, blood pressure pills, some cold and flu remedies, medicines for dry mouth — include sweating as a side effect. If you're currently taking medication, read up on their side effects and see if sweating is one. Many doctors report that medication-induced sweating primarily happens at night, when you're wrapped in a blanket and trying to get warm. However, the cold perspiration can happen during the day as well.

Relaxation and exercise are good ways to combat this; they both prevent overproduction of adrenaline-inducing hormones. Stay away from caffeine and monitor how much sugar you consume in a day, as they both raise the blood pressure and produce adrenaline, which results in more sweating.

At Kleinert's we have a myriad of products that can help with over-sweating (Hyperhidrosis). From Antiperspirant WipesDress & Garment Shields to Sweatproof Undershirts we have products for men and women that can manage this problem.

Why Do We Sweat More In The Summer?




People typically sweat more in summer than winter because the temperature is hotter (combination of the heat and humidity) and the body overheats more easily. The humidity is the amount of water vapor that's currently in the air. Water vapor is what makes us feel hot and sweaty. High humidity and high heat combined together is why we sweat.

Our bodies sensing when we get hot trigger sweat glands that release a watery substance that’s the foundation of sweat. When sweat is released onto the skin and is exposed to the air, it will evaporate and ultimately help to cool down the body and lower our body temperatures.

It is harder to cool off in humid climates because the sweat can't evaporate very fast but in dry climates such as arizona you actually feel cooler when you sweat because it evaporates off of you causing your skin to cool off. 

Sweating is a natural occurrence in our body and if we did not sweat our bodies would be in trouble because they would overheat internally and that could possibly lead to death if not cared for quickly. If you do not sweat in hot conditions you need to find the reason why because that is abnormal. So in essence we all sweat but many sweat more than others due to genetics, circumstances, climate and more.

Since we don’t like to see sweat stains or smell the foul odor we at Kleinert’s develop a variety of products to guard and control sweat. Some examples of our products are Sweat Shield Clinical Antiperspirant Wipes, Disposable Underarm Pads, Washable Dress Shields and Washable Garment Shields, Sweatproof Undershirts, Dry Feet Products, Bedding Protection and more.

Kleinert's Incontinence Underwear

I.B. Kleinerts invented the incontinence category in 1869 with the first waterproof rubber pant. Since then we have expanded our range of men’s and women’s incontinence products.

Incontinence is a subject that is not discussed often due to the embarrassment it can cause. It is a problem that affects millions and does not discriminate between men and women.

Looking at the statistics there are more women that suffer from incontinence then men but recent estimates show that men with this problem total about 5 million and it could be more than that as it seems it is under reported.

Many manufactures that have created incontinence products for women have taken notice of the increased demand and now create more products for men including the development of adult diapers and various styles of incontinence underwear. These incontinence undergarments can be worn with or without incontinence pads.

Kleinert’s manufactures its own line of Incontinence Underwear for men known as Safe & Dry. There Is the Safe & Dry Men’s Waterproof Briefs and Safe & Dry Waterproof Boxer Briefs. These are made for men who suffer from light – moderate incontinence and can absorb 10 oz of fluid. The incontinence underwear that we make today uses advancements in production and newer fabrics than were first used.

Kleinert’s incontinence underwear for men comes in styles that look and feel much like normal underwear. They can be worn with confidence and discretion. Men who wear this type of incontinence underwear report that they can wear them under almost any type of clothing without detection. Best of all, for the man who wants to choose what style he wears incontinence underwear come in both boxer and brief styles.

It is also important to know that incontinence pants or incontinence underwear for men offer the convenience of choosing between washable and disposable. While Kleinert’s incontinence underwear is washable there is also disposable incontinence underwear that can just be thrown away after each use.


With Kleinert’s washable incontinence underwear though you can save considerable money by just rewashing the garments 100 times or more. You should also not let the embarrassment of shopping for incontinence products keep you from getting what you need. Our incontinence brief is also available through some VA hospitals pharmacy department. Otherwise just call our customer service department at 1-800-498-7051.

Nervous Sweating & Ways To Stop



When you sweat from anxiety it can be an experience throughout the whole-body. A single thought or certain environment triggers your nervous system, resulting in nervous sweats that can stress you out even more and you’re not even hot. It doesn’t have to be this way though.


There are several techniques to stop sweating due to anxiety or nervousness. Deep breaths, drinking water and listening to soft music will calm your body down, slow your heart rate and reduce nervous sweats. Don't let perspiration get the best of you. Below we present some techniques.

1. TAKE DEEP BREATHS

Take a deep breath. Hold for a few seconds and release. Repeat. Deep breathing will slow your heart rate and help stop your nervous sweats. If you concentrate on the situation this only makes you more anxious and sweaty. Calming yourself down will stop or at the very least reduce the sweating. We encourage you to try this technique.

2. STAYING HYDRATED

Hydration is very important for anyone whether they sweat excessively or not. A lack of water tells your body to sweat more to help cool you down. This is a natural process from our bodies. Heavy stress can also dry out your mouth, so be sure to drink enough water before a stressful or anxious situation to prevent excessive sweating and annoying dry mouth.

3. AVOID COMMON SWEAT TRIGGERS

Hot and spicy foods should definitely be a non-no, smoking or drinking lots of alcohol can cause you to sweat more than normal. Avoid these common sweat triggers before a nerve-racking situation to ward off the sweats. Certain medications and even coffee can cause you to sweat so avoid these also whenever possible.

4. WEAR A KLEINERT’S UNDERSHIRT

An easy way to keep nervous sweats from showing through your dress shirt is by using one of our sweatproof undershirts. Kleinert’s integrated sweat shields completely absorb sweat and allow it to evaporate, so sweat doesn’t reach your outer layer. By wearing a Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirt beneath your dress shirts, you'll forget you're sweating, you will stay dry and no more sweat stains visible on your shirts. A win-win in our book.


5. PUT ON ANTIPERSPIRANT AT BEDTIME

Your antiperspirant can work harder by applying it before bedtime. Nighttime is actually the most effective time to apply antiperspirant because it allows the active ingredient aluminum time to block your sweat glands while you rest. Your morning shower won’t wash off the antiperspirant. Our Sweat Shield Ultra Antiperspirant Wipes are an effective solution and are waterproof thru showering and may last up to 1 week on the area applied.

6. CHOOSING THE RIGHT BREATHABLE MATERIALS

Always opt for natural fabrics like cotton or bamboo. High-quality cotton is more breathable and repels heat better than synthetic fabrics like polyester. Important to note that the quality of the cotton can affect the shirt’s breathability.

By trying the steps above before and during stressful situations can help stop nervous sweating. Staying hydrated, deep breathing and distraction techniques will bring your body temperature down, slow your heart rate and stop anxious sweating.

Save Your Shirts From Sweat Stains




When underarm sweat starts to wreak havoc on your clothes and confidence, you need a solution and fast. No one wants to spend hundreds of dollars replacing or constantly dry cleaning expensive shirts. This is where dress shields can help. Sweat is an unavoidable fact of life. We all sweat in one form or the other. Now during these hot summer months we don’t need sweltering temperatures nor stress to get us down.


What Are Dress Shields?

Dress shields are a form of underarm sweat pad that can be applied to your body or shirt to absorb armpit sweat. There are a few ways they can be attached:

Sew it into your shirt
Stick it directly to your shirt via special tape
Pin or snap it to your shirt
Directly Against Skin


When looking for dress shields or a similar sweat-blocking alternative, there are a few important questions to ask:

1. Does it contain sweat-blocking materials? Natural fibers like cotton and bamboo soak up moisture so it doesn’t show through your shirt.
2. How does it attach? Always find out what you’ll need to attach the dress shield to your body or shirt before purchasing.
3. How much area do they cover? Matching the size of your dress shield to your armpit area can be tricky. Do your research to find the appropriate size.
4. Are they reusable or disposable?  While most dress shields can be washed and worn multiple times, some are disposable. If you're looking for long-term use, verify that it's reusable.

WILL DRESS SHIELDS REALLY WORK?

Dress shields actually date back to the mid 1800s. Kleinert’s was the inventor of the first Dress Shield. While dress shields typically work best for the everyday use the way they work can depend on some factors.

Positioning for one, the way you attach it, etc. You may need to try a few ways before you settle on a method that works best for you. Some dress shields are made for a light-moderate sweater and others are made for people who sweat more heavily.  


A GREAT ALTERNATIVE:
KLEINERT’S SWEATPROOF UNDERSHIRTS


Instead of attaching a loose dress shield to your clothes, Kleinert’s offers an alternative to sweat protection our sweatproof undershirts for men and women.

Containing underarm sweat shields which contain 4 layers this system traps heat and moisture and allows it to evaporate rather than seep through your clothes. Because the sweat proof properties are native (not made with chemical treatments found in many water-repelling fabrics), they won’t wash off over time.

Unlike a dress shield which may or may not stay in place, Kleinert’s sweat proof technology stays put throughout the day, so you don’t have to reposition the pad or worry whether it’s visible to others. Most importantly, you eliminate embarrassing wet marks and pit stains to your fine garments.

Factors That Influence How Much You Sweat



Sweating is most often associated with heat. You do sweat when exposed to high temperatures to help cool down. As sweat evaporates from your skin, it takes body heat away with it, producing a cooling effect thru thermoregulation.

Temperature alone will not influence how much you sweat or where. Below are 5 underlying factors behind your sweat:


1. DNA 

Some people sweat more in certain areas than others. Much of this is due in part to your DNA. Some individuals start to sweat in a particular area like their hands, feet or underarms because those particular glands react to the brain's signal first. This is also known as a Predisposition to sweating. Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a hereditary condition influenced by your genes. 


2. BODY WEIGHT

People that are leaner (skinny) tend to handle sweat more efficiently and handle heat better than overweight individuals. Fat acts as an insulator and because of this people with excess fat may feel hotter, sweat more profusely and take longer to cool down than a leaner person.


3. DISTRIBUTION OF SWEAT GLANDS

The way your sweat glands are placed also shapes how you sweat. Your body contains roughly 2 to 5 million sweat glands located all across the body, which consist of two types: eccrine & apocrine.


Eccrine glands reside in pores and produce sweat that is odorless and is composed of salt and water to help cool the skin. Apocrine glands typically end in hair follicles (rather than pores) and secrete a milky type fluid that becomes odorous when mixed with bacteria on the skin. If you sweat excessively in one particular area, you could have a higher concentration of eccrine glands there.


4. PHYSICAL FITNESS

Your body temperature will rise when you're active, so the more intense, the more you sweat. It is important to note that two people of a similar size can finish the same workout and sweat totally differently. It is true.


As endurance builds up, your body becomes more proficient at sweating to keep you cool. Athletes for example sweat sooner and more heavily than untrained people because they have a higher maximum oxygen uptake which is a measure of cardiovascular fitness and aerobic endurance.


5. ACCLIMATIZATION

This is the process of adjusting to environmental temperatures. When you regularly spend time in the heat, you become more acclimated to the temperature and sweat more efficiently.


The ability to sweat is advantageous as it keeps you from overheating during a tough workout. Still, sweating excessively and spontaneously regardless of the temperature or physical activity can take a big toll on your life.


Our  Kleinert’s Sweatproof Undershirts completely absorb sweat while allowing it to evaporate. No more embarrassing wet marks or yellow stains shown by the underarms.
