What is Excessive Sweating?

Excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition described as sweating beyond what is necessary to cool the body which can have a serious impact on self-confidence, personal relationships and even career success. There are two types of Hyperhidrosis:

1) Focal or Primary Hyperhidrosis affects local areas such as the underarms, palms, feet and face due to an over-stimulation of the nerve to release a chemical called acetylcholine which over-activates the sweat gland to produce more sweat.

2) Generalized or Secondary Hyperhidrosis usually affects the entire body due to conditions such as menopause, metabolic disorders, neurological disorders, infections, etc.
