What is Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)?
Hyperhidrosis is a skin condition in which excessive sweating occurs beyond what is physiologically required to maintain normal thermal regulation. Sweat is produced by glands in the skin and released to the skin surface through ducts. Sweat gland activity is controlled by the nervous system. The nervous system transmits signals to the sweat glands through the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Primary hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating without a known cause, can affect the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis), palms of the hands, soles of the feet, face, and other areas.
