Hyperhidrosis / Sweaty Palms and Feet

Hyperhidrosis / Sweaty Palms and Feet - What it is

Hyperhidrosis means excessive sweating. It can be localised or affect the whole body.

Sweating is controlled by the brain, which sends signals along nerves (called “sympathetic nerves”) to the sweat glands in the skin.

Sweating is a normal response to an increase in surrounding temperature. It is required to “cool” the body down. Sweating can also occur in response to certain emotions e.g. anxiety.

It is common for hyperhidrosis to run in families and up to 30% of sufferers may have another family member with the condition.
