Hyperhydrosis is the technical term for a condition that many people suffer from that means you have excessive sweating. For this article, we are going to talk about Hyperhydrosis underarm because this is the most common.
Other forms of Hyperhydrosis will be found on the hands and feet, the face, or in the groin area. All of these areas will have excess sweating for the person that is dealing with the problem.
Hyperhydrosis underarm affects about 2-3% of people but it also accounts for about 40% of the total types of excessive sweating. Because of this many people are embarrassed to go out in social situations because they can't stop sweating.

Hyperhydrosis underarm is usually seen in teenagers or when people are in their early twenties. These are times as you know when people are already feeling vulnerable and awkward.

Some doctors say that Hyperhydrosis underarm is caused by an overactive sympathetic nervous system. Others think it is an over active sweat gland called the eccrine gland. Doctors will probably continue to make guesses about it because they really don't understand it.
