What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis, better known as excessive sweating, affects many people. One common form of this disorder is Palmar hyperhidrosis, which results in excessive sweating in the palms of the hands. Other areas that are effective by excessive sweating are the feet, underarm, and face. The excessive sweating stems from overactive nerves in the sympathetic nervous system.
Where normal sweating is necessary for thermal regulation, abnormal sweating, such as hyperhidrosis, exceeds the need for physiological thermal regulation. Oftentimes the sweating occurs suddenly without warning and cannot be controlled, which can be embarrassing. Hyperhidrosis is not limited to any specific ethnicity. Anyone can be subjected to the disorder and will have to endure it for the remainder of their lives.
Signs and Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis
The most common signs and symptoms of excessive sweating are:
- cold and clammy hands
- skin infections secondary to maceration of the skin
- devastating emotional effects
