Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased (excessive) sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Hyperhidrosis can be associated with a quality of life burden from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. It has been called by some ‘the silent handicap’.
Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized, or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the high number of sweat glands in these areas. When excessive sweating is localized (e.g. palms, soles, face, underarms, scalp) it is referred to as primary hyperhidrosis or focal hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating involving the whole body is termed generalized hyperhidrosis or secondary hyperhidrosis. It is usually the result of some other, underlying condition such as thyroid diseases or cancers.
