What is Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)?

Description of the disease

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition in which a person experiences excessive sweating that exceeds the needs required for regulating body temperature and maintaining normal skin moisture levels.


  • Focal hyperhidrosis
  • Generalized hyperhidrosis


Symptoms of hyperhidrosis include excessive sweating, frequent clothing dampness, and the development of an unpleasant odor due to bacteria thriving on the skin due to moisture.


Causes of hyperhidrosis may be genetic and also related to physiological changes in the body, stress, and hormonal changes.


Diagnosis of hyperhidrosis is based on patient examination and analysis of their medical history. Sometimes additional laboratory tests may be required.


Treatment of hyperhidrosis may include the use of antiperspirants with high aluminum salt content, botulinum therapy, the use of anticholinergic drugs, and surgical intervention.


Prevention of hyperhidrosis may include avoiding stressful situations, taking regular showers, and wearing clothing made of natural materials.


The treatment of hyperhidrosis is carried out by a dermatologist or endocrinologist.
