What is hyperhidrosis?

This refers to excessive sweating, even in cool weather and when not exercising. This can affect the whole body or only specific parts (e.g. sweaty palms). Hyperhidrosis can be caused by some thyroid disorders, problems with the nerves, as a side effect of some medication, or may have no known cause (idiopathic).

Symptoms of hyperhidrosis

  • Sweating over a specific part of the body only, e.g. palms, soles, armpits, or face
