Hyperhidrosis

 

 AKA Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects millions of people around the world. Uncontrolled sweating can occur on various parts of the body, including the face, hands, feet or underarms.

 Although high temperatures or stress can increase perspiration, they do not cause hyperhidrosis. Rather, hyperhidrosis may be an inherited trait that stops the body from properly regulating its temperature. Or, it may be a symptom of other conditions such as anxiety disorders, thyroid malfunction, nerve damage or menopause. It can also occur as a side effect of medication. It is therefore important to get a proper diagnosis by an expert to rule out any underlying cause before starting treatment.
