Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is one of the common disorders of sweat glands. It can trouble to the extent that one feels professional embarrassment while shaking hands and the individual usually avoids touching, which can lead to social seclusion or other symptoms of social anxiety disorders. It can affect palms, soles, axillae and to a lesser extent it can involve the face and groin areas.
A physiological cause of diffuse sweating which occurs in hot and humid weather or with thermal stimulus or excessive physical exertion is considered as normal. But, if an individual is having sweating out of proportionate levels to normal individuals, then it does raise a concern.
Types of Hyperhidrosis:
Hyperhidrosis may be primary or secondary.
The severity of primary focal hyperhidrosis ranges from intermittent, slightly moist palms and soles to daily sweat drippage from hands and feet, requiring frequent use of towels.
It should be focused on the severity, distribution of involvement and must rule out other causes of hyperhidrosis.
