SWEATY PALMS

No sweat in just 15 minutes

What is HYPERHIDROSIS @ Sweaty Palms?

In all human, sweating is an automatic process. In some people, however, natural perspiration is excessive, leading to a condition known as hyperhidrosis.

The most common areas where such excessive sweating occurs are the:

  • hands,
  • face,
  • feet
  • axillae.

This condition is prevalent in 0.6% – 1% of young adults. It often begins in adolescence but can occur in people of all ages. The cause of this condition is unknown but it is related to over-activity in the Sympathetic Nervous System.
