Excessive Sweating

Sweating (Hyperhidros) is embarrassing, it stains clothes and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), is a common disorder 2.8% of the population suffer from hyperhidrosis have axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating of the underarms and of this population around 50% have have axillary hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating of the underarms.


Causes of hyperhidrosis are not understood. The condition occurs daily, often without provocation. It can be made worse by stress, anxiety, a warm environment, and physical activity. More research is still needed but experts agree excessive sweating is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system prepares the body to cope with stressful situations. Normally, this system helps the body with its "fight or flight" responses. But in people with hyperhidrosis, something goes wrong and excessive sweating is the result. 


The experts think that hyperhidrosis may be a genetic condition and a recent study in the Journal of Vascular Surgeryindicates that palmar hyperhidrosis might be due to genetic factors, indeed many patients at the clinic have parents and siblings who have hyperhidrosis.
