What is it?

Perspiration is the body’s way of regulating temperature in cases of extreme heat. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the perspiration is excessive and when temperature regulation triggers do not exist.

The most often affected areas are:
Palms
Soles of the feet
Groin area
Underarms

The triggers of hyperhidrosis have not been precisely determined. However, it is believed that the condition is both inherited and acquired. Other connections have been made with:
Diabetes
Gout
Menopause
Allergic reaction to medications
Cancer
Stressful situations 

Symptoms?

Abnormal amounts of sweating
Excessive sweating when conditions for sweating do not exist
Night sweats in normal health

Could this be what you have?

Chances of developing non inherited hyperhidrosis rise in people who:

Are allergic to certain medications
Are in menopause
Suffer from low blood sugar
Develop an overactive thyroid gland
Have some forms of cancer
Have suffered a heart attack

If you have concerns regarding the above, you should see your primary care provider.
