What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that causes excessive sweating in the palms, underarms, feet, and sometimes other parts of the body. This condition commonly causes excess sweating to occur without the need for high temperatures, heavy clothing, or excess humidity. Instead, hyperhidrosis may cause sweating when there are no specific triggers at all. While a large portion of the population suffers from hyperhidrosis, only a small amount of people are aware it’s a condition that can be treated by a skilled dermatologist like Dr. Siddiqui.
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a very common condition that may not have a single specific cause. While some patients may have hyperhidrosis as a result of family history and genetics, others may experience excessive sweating as a result of:
- Heart disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Adrenal gland disorders
- The use of certain prescription medications like antidepressants
If you’re unsure what the root cause of your hyperhidrosis is, we encourage you to come in and see Dr. Siddiqui for your private consultation.
