Hyperhidrosis is an excessive sweating disorder that is not related to heat or physical activity. Axillary hyperhidrosis is sweating of the underarms, which usually starts in late adolescence. Palmoplantar hyperhidrosis is sweating of the palms of the hands or soles of the feet and tends to start in earlier adolescence.
While there are currently many ways to treat hyperhidrosis from over the counter antiperspirants to prescription medications or topical treatments to surgery, pharmaceutical companies continue to work on developing better options. Clinical research studies are very important in testing these investigational treatment options to be sure they are safe and effective for the general population.
