Hyperhidrosis involves sweating excessively. It can be localised or affect the entire body and face. Increased sweating is a normal response to an increase in body temperature and anxiety-like emotions.
Hyperhidrosis is caused by
Localized symmetric hyperhidrosis (primary hyperhidrosis) is the most common type of hyperhidrosis, affecting some (localised) body sites as well as both sides (symmetric).
Generalized hyperhidrosis (affecting the entire body) may be caused by certain diseases, including infections, and hormonal conditions, including menopause, diabetes, and an overactive thyroid gland. Hyperhidrosis of this type is called secondary hyperhidrosis. Some medicines, including fluoxetine and similar antidepressants, may also cause excessive sweating.
Sympathetic nerve inflammation or agitation is a rare cause of increased sweating, whether commonly or locally (usually
only on one side of the face or body).
Anxiety can cause or worse]n hyperhidrosis, but this does not necessarily mean an unusually anxious or stressed person is affected. Sometimes worrying about sweating can create a vicious circle that aggravates the problem.
