Sweat Allergy – Causes, Symptoms, and Ayurvedic Treatment

स्वदोअतिस्वेददौर्गन्ध्यकण्डू: ll (अ.हृ.सू. ११/१४) ll

Sweat allergy is defined as a type I hypersensitivity against the contents of sweat. Some people experience itchiness, redness and even hive from sweating. Cholinergic Urticaria is the most common type of allergic manifestation triggered by sweat. It occurs as rashes when the body gets very much warm and sweats. Cholinergic Urticaria is also known as cholinergic angioedema or heat bumps. It usually appears quickly and gets cleared easily. Rarely, it may result in life-threatening allergic reactions. In Ayurveda, there is an explanation of conditions where there is increased sweating and associated symptoms. 

Causes of Sweat Allergy

The primary reason for Cholinergic Urticaria is an increase in body temperature. The nerve fibers in the sweat glands are responsible for it. When the body temperature rises skin reacts to heat and sweat. Other factors leading to this condition are:-

  • Sweating by exercise
  • Bathing in hot water
  • Exposure to hot climate
  • Wearing tight garments
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Eating hot and spicy food

In Ayurveda, sweat allergy is caused by various conditions where the body produces excessive sweat.

Symptoms of Sweat Allergy

  • Red patches of skin covered with thick and silvery scales
  • Tiny spots of scaling

  • Nails become thickened, ridged, or pitted
  • Swollen and stiff joints
  • Patches range from a few spots to major eruptions
