Hyperhidrosis is the medical term used for chronic, excessive perspiration. It first develops itself during youth or young adulthood and incidents can be triggered by a range of factors, including excitement, spicy food or drink. Hyperhidrosis manifests itself in the sudden, excessive build-up of sweat, most noticeably in the armpits, and on the hands and feet, and less commonly on isolated regions of the body, such as the face. Smoking increases both the frequency and intensity of symptoms. Treatments include over-the-counter clinical strength antiperspirant/deodorant, prescription antiperspirant, oral medication, Qbrexza towelette, and Botox.
