Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which an individual excessively sweats. The sweating could be unrelated to heat or exertion. Most commonly affected areas of the body are armpits, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, face, chest, and groin.
What causes hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis does not have an exact cause, but it is known to be a result of a problem with the part of an individual’s nervous system that controls sweating. Triggers for this condition include pregnancy, menopause, anxiety, certain medications, infections, hypoglycemia, or hyperthyroidism.
