Hyperhydrosis is the condition characterized by abnormally increased perspiration, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature. Hyperhydrosis can either be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits and back are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of sweat glands; however, any part of the body may be affected. Primary hyperhydrosis is caused by an overactive sympathetic nerve. 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.
