What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
The exact hyperhidrosis causes are not yet fully understood, but the condition is believed to be related to overactivity of the sweat glands.
There are two types of hyperhidrosis:
Primary hyperhidrosis is believed to be caused by an inherited genetic trait and often begins in childhood or adolescence. It usually affects specific areas of the body such as the underarms, hands, and feet.
Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by an underlying medical condition, such as menopause, diabetes, thyroid issues, anxiety disorders, or certain medications.
