Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Perspiration from exertion, high temperatures, a state of emotional excitation, or even consumption of spicy food is typical for most people. A person with hyperhidrosis experiences such copious sweating without apparent stimuli.
Although nearly three percent of the world’s population has hyperhidrosis, it is estimated that fewer than half of those affected seek medical help despite the ready availability of treatment.
