If you or someone close to you is suffering from excessive sweating, chances are that they are suffering from Hyperhidrosis.

What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition where your body’s sweat glands overact causing one to sweat excessively. The sweating can be in uncommon areas which could be a major cause of discomfort and embarrassment.

Hyperhidrosis is divided into two major categories- Focal and Generalized. Focal Hyperhidrosis is a hereditary chronic condition and usually affects only the armpits, palms, feet, and the head. Generalized Hyperhidrosis is often a result of another medical condition like diabetes or Parkinson’s. The disease as well as the medication associated with it can cause the body to sweat excessively.

What causes Hyperhidrosis?

Our body sweats when it gets too hot by signaling the sweat glands to start working and cool the body down. However, In Hyperhidrosis, sweat glands work overtime and produce sweat even when the body does not apparently need it. Factors causing excessive sweating may include but are not limited to-

  • Stress and anxiety.
  • Body heat.
  • Citrus foods, caffeine, peanut butter, spices.
  • Auto-immune conditions.
