Although it has a fancy name, hyperhidrosis simply describes a process many of us are very familiar with: excess sweating.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
With hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands are overactive. This condition does not discriminate, and can occur in adults of all ages. Generalized hyperhidrosis is a version of the disorder where the entire body is affected – armpits, hands, feet and scalp. Focal hyperhidrosis occurs when only one body area is affected, such as the armpits.
