Excessive Underarm Sweating Causes You Didn’t Know About

You expect to sweat during a hard work out on a sweltering summer day or after a long day at the office with a broken A/C. It’s no surprise that you’re sticky and uncomfortable. 

But then there are other instances when for example you’re about to give a presentation at work when suddenly, despite the chilly room, your palms get sopping wet. Or, when you take a bite of spicy chicken and immediately feel your face flush and get hot.


Sweat is triggered by other factors than just exercise and heat. These include your diet, what you drink and your environment. Below we present some excessive underarm sweating causes you did not know about. 


In the U.S. 80% of American adults consume caffeine every day, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Caffeine stimulates the brain and nervous system, which causes sweating. The temperature inside the caffeinated beverage may also cause a spike in your body temperature and momentarily cause you to sweat. 

Medical Condition.

A medical condition is where one area of your body sweats profusely. Besides hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating can also indicate a larger medical issue such as a warning sign of thyroid problems, side effects of medication, obesity, diabetes or infection. 

Anxious Sweats.  

Anxious situations, like a first job interview, public speaking, a big presentation or meeting new people for the first time, trigger your body’s response, causing you to sweat. 


Spicy foods, such as curry, sugary desserts and even chocolate (high sugar and caffeine content) can all trigger your nervous system and cause sweating.  

More Exercise.

Working out more may cause you to think that your body will adapt and sweat less. That is simply not the case. A fit person will start sweating earlier and heavier during a workout. It may sound strange but the more a person exercises, the more efficient their body is at regulating temperature. When you start to sweat earlier, your body cools down faster thus allowing you to work out harder for longer. 


Sweating is a necessary part of daily life. How much a person sweats is an unique combination of their environment, gender, genetics, age and even fitness level. As your body temperature fluctuates, your nervous system works to regulate it so you don’t overheat. 

Although important, sweating isn’t always convenient. No spicy foods to enjoy, your morning coffee, trying to make it through the job interview without sweating through your shirt. That’s where Kleinert’s comes in. Our undershirts have an effective, comfortable, patented sweat proof barrier built into the underarms. The Dry zone technology absorbs sweat and releases vapor, letting sweat escape without anyone seeing it.
