What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating. While sweating is a natural response to exercise or increased body temperature, Hyperhidrosis causes some people to sweat beyond these common triggers. The result of overactive sweat glands, hyperhidrosis is often intensified by stress or anxiety.

How is Hyperhidrosis developed?

While Hyperhidrosis is believed to be a condition that passes through genetics, the direct cause of it is unknown. However, it has been observed that it is a condition within the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. These particular nerves alert the glands to produce extensive amounts of sweat. While stress and anxiety are often triggers, some people may experience excessive sweating without a particular reason.
