Wind is my worst enemy. For someone with hyperhidrosis, walking outside on a windy day will feel like coming out of a hot shower on a cold day. I don’t know exactly what makes it feel so cold, but I think it’s the water evaporating off the body that somehow feels cold.
“Being wet makes this worse. Both because the wind agitates the water and brings cold water back in contact with your skin, and because it increases the rate of evaporation. Evaporation takes energy from the surroundings (your skin) when it occurs and makes you colder. This is the same way that sweating works (see ).”
The reason I bring this up is that it’s almost winter. I can wear mittens, but when they soak through, it feels like my mittens could freeze through. I’ve tried putting plastic gloves under the gloves or mitten, but honestly its just nasty. It works but it feels gross. I think the magic solution was putting on plastic gloves over the mittens. I know… you’ll look stupid… well tough love because I’d rather be warm than cold. But if you want to look normal, you could put another mitten on, but I don’t think you’ll be able to move your fingers through three layers. Good luck!
