People who have hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating may also fall prey to a host of other minor infections and maladies. Here are the health complications of profuse sweating and how to treat them.
Excessive sweating keeps the hands damp and clammy, making them susceptible to fungal infections. The most common nail infection is a toenail infection. This results in redness around the nail bed, slightly pungent odor, and sometimes a separation between the nail and the nail bed.
Powerful natural remedies for fungal infection on the nail are the following:
- Soak your infected nail fifteen minutes daily in 2 quarts of warm water with 10 drops of lavender essential oil and a cup of apple cider vinegar.
- Dab a mixture of 50-50 tea tree oil and lavender essential oil on the affected nail.

When bacteria thrive on the perspiration between your toes, then that may result to athlete’s foot. This skin infection is characterized by itchiness, cracking or peeling skin, and a burning sensation. Athlete’s foot is contagious, so do not scratch it because you may unintentionally spread it to other parts of your body.
Powerful natural remedies for athlete’s foot are the following:
- For ten minutes, soak your infected foot in a foot bath with 40 drops of tea tree oil.
- Another foot bath to treat athlete’s foot can be made from warm water, half a cup of apple cider vinegar, and two tablespoons of salt.
- Dab crushed garlic on the infected area or increase your garlic intake (not recommended if you are going into surgery soon).

Jock itch (tinea crunis)
This hyperhidrosis complication involves a fungal infection around the groin. The typical symptoms are itching, burning sensation, and red rashes found in the inner thighs and the buttocks. Jock itch is contagious, and it can spread just by sharing towels with someone who has it.
Powerful natural remedies for jock itch are the following:
- Apple cider vinegar is the best and the safest way to treat it. Simply apply it on the infected area.
- Freshly crushed garlic rubbed on the fungal rash works, too.
- Virgin coconut oil has antifungal properties and can be effective for treating tinea crunis.
