Hyperhidrosis is a chronic medical disorder that results in excessive sweat production. Common areas where patients seek treatment are the palms of the hands, underarms, and the soles of the feet. This condition is a contributing cause of depression and frustration. Experiencing excessive sweating can be embarrassing and interfere with normal daily activities, both socially and professionally.
