Sweating happens when our sweat glands produce droplets of perspiration that are secreted to the surface of our skin as a response to rising temperatures.
Things that generally cause us to sweat are: hot air temperatures, exercise, having a fever, certain emotions (such as anger) and stress. If you are excessively sweating under normal circumstances, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis - a condition that sees the sweat glands continue to perspire despite not needing to.
Excessive sweating, or for some people hyperhidrosis, though is when your body sweats when it does not need to cool down. In certain cases excessive sweating can be a sign of medical problems, but for most it is just a harmless nuisance. Read on to learn more about what might be causing your excessive sweating and how to treat it.
