Generally, sweating is caused by a hike in temperature, exercise, or a nervous or embarrassing situation. But for some individuals, even without these triggers, excessive sweating may occur. This is known as hyperhidrosis.
Persons with hyperhidrosis have overactive sweat glands which cause sweating at the most unpredictable moments – especially on palms, soles, armpits, and groin areas. This could lead to both discomfort and embarrassment.
Secondary or generalized hyperhidrosis could be caused by medication, menopausal hot flushes, hyperthyroidism, certain cancers, and heart disease. This type of sweating affects larger areas of the body.
