Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating, not related to exercise, stress or hot weather, that can soak through clothes, causing discomfort, embarrassment, and social anxiety.

It can affect both men and women. Armpits, faces and hands are most commonly involved. Special antiperspirants may be recommended by your GP, but if these fail other options including injections that temporarily block the function of the nerves that cause sweating.
