What is Hyperhidrosis?
Perspiration is the body’s way of regulating temperature in cases of extreme heat. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the perspiration is excessive and when temperature regulation triggers do not exist.
The Most Often Affected Areas Are:
- Soles of the feet
- Groin area
What Triggers Hyperhidrosis?
The triggers of hyperhidrosis have not been precisely determined. However, it is believed that the condition is both inherited and acquired. Other connections have been made with:
- Allergic reaction to medications
- Stressful situations
- Abnormal amounts of sweating
- Excessive sweating when conditions for sweating do not exist
- Night sweats in normal health
Could This be What You Have?
Chances of developing non inherited hyperhidrosis rise in people who:
- Are allergic to certain medications
- Are in menopause
- Suffer from low blood sugar
- Develop an overactive thyroid gland
- Have some forms of cancer
- Have suffered a heart attack
If you have concerns regarding the above, you should see your primary care provider for Hyperhidrosis treatment.
