Excessive perspiration can be caused by many factors including: Being hot or feeling “hot” – this could be due to too much exercise, stress, anxiety or any other factor. This can lead to an increase in body temperature which then causes your body tissues to increase their rate of moisture loss through perspiration. To reduce excess sweat you need proper hydration (i.e., drinking lots of water) and lowering your core body temperature by wearing light clothing during warmer weather or taking cool showers/baths at night when necessary.. Certain medications may also cause perspiration as a side effect . Methylxanthines such as caffeine, ephedrine and pseudoephedrine commonly used in over-the-counter cold remedies including decongestants typically contain caffeine which increases heat within the body causing increased heat generation along with an increase in sweating via ion exchange mechanisms that exist between sodium ions inside cells and potassium ions outside cells where only sodium will cross into the cell membrane freely while potassium has less affinity for entering cells so more free potassium goes out than inside resulting in higher plasma osmolarity levels creating more thirst leading people who take these medications chronically often become dehydrated leading them to drink even larger amounts of fluids without actually
