What is Hyperhidrosis?
Excessive sweating, medically known as Hyperhidrosis, is a common medical condition affecting approximately 3 % of the population. This condition is seen equally in both men and women. It usually begins during childhood or adolescence.
It can affect the underarms (axillary Hyperhidrosis), palms (palmar Hyperhidrosis), feet (plantar Hyperhidrosis, face and forehead or a combination of them. The cause is unknown.
