In very simple terms, can be defined as overly active sweat glands. But what makes sweat glands overactive? This is a result of far too many signals sent through the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system. Among many other functions, this part of our nervous system is responsible for helping us to regulate our body temperature. This is the body’s natural method of cooling itself down during active periods, such as exercise or exposure to warm environments. However, a person with Hyperhidrosis experiences uncontrolled and excessive sweating, even in situations where the climate is cool! Therefore, such individuals sweat profusely during times when sweating is completely unnecessary. Typically, individuals afflicted with Hyperhidrosis experience severe sweating of the hands, face, and/or underarm, in some cases, other areas as well. Obviously, those who suffer from this condition are facing major challenges every single day.
