What causes excessive sweating?
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) refers to heavy sweating that normally occurs in the underarms, palms, and soles of the feet. When you sweat, signals are sent to your body’s nervous system which triggers your sweat glands to activate. In hyperhidrosis, the nerves that are responsible for triggering your sweat glands become overactive and cannot shut down properly. Some common causes of hyperhidrosis include stress, nervousness, and an underlying medical condition such as menopause or hyperthyroidism.
Common areas to treat
