Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Normally, the body produces sweat in order to to regulate body temperature. In certain individuals, the nerves that control the sweat glands become overactive and excess sweat is produced. This tends to affect the underarm region most commonly, but sometimes the palms, soles and scalp can also be affected. Hyperhidrosis can have a significant impact on self-confidence and negatively affect quality of life for patients. It can often lead to anxiety, social situation avoidance, depression and negatively impact the day to day life for those who are even mildly affected.
