The cause of primary hyperhidrosis is unknown, although some surgeons claim it is caused by sympathetic over-activity. Nervousness or excitement can exacerbate the situation for many sufferers. Other factors can play a role; certain foods and drinks, nicotine, caffeine, and smells can trigger a response.
A common complaint of patients is they get nervous because they sweat, then sweat more because they are nervous.
Hyperhydrosis is characterized by uncontrolled, excessive sweating unrelated to heat or strenous activity. It may be contained to the hands, feet, armpits, groin or may be pervasive throught the body. It may be congenital or develop later in life due to menopause, diabetes or hormonal disorders. Treatments Include: Botox, Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy.
