Sweating ( Hyperhidrosis)

Hyperhidrosis is the name given to excessive and uncontrollable sweating. Sweat is a weak salt solution produced by the eccrine sweat glands. These are distributed over the entire body but they are most numerous on the palms and soles (with about 700 glands per square centimetre).

  • Localised hyperhidrosis may affect the armpits, palms, soles, face or elsewhere.
  • Generalised hyperhidrosis may affect the entire body.

Localised hyperhidrosis is more common than generalised hyperhidrosis. Triggers to attacks of sweating may include:

  • Hot weather
  • Exercise
  • Fever
  • Anxiety
  • Spicy food

The sweating usually reduces at night time and disappears during sleep.
