Men and women visit our St. Louis dermatologic practice for initial consultations concerning their excessive sweating even if when they are at rest or even when the temperature is cool. By and large, these individuals have hyperhidrosis, a medical condition wherein an individual sweats excessively and in some cases, unpredictably.

Unknown Cause

As of the moment, the exact cause of hyperhidrosis is unknown. It appears that individuals with hyperhidrosis have overactive sweat glands. In cases of secondary hyperhidrosis, the uncontrollable sweating may be caused by an existing condition such as menopause, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, heart disease, certain types of cancer, and spinal cord injuries.
