The purpose of sweating is to remove heat from your body by evaporation, which takes place when sweat evaporates into the air. When you are hot, however, this process becomes disrupted because sweating can’t take place as effectively, so you feel uncomfortable and overheat even though there’s no actual increase in temperature. The primary cause of overheating is an elevated core body temperature (over 37°C), which increases with increased activity or exposure to high temperatures. Sweating is also stimulated by the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) under certain conditions.

Hyperhidrosis affects about 25% of people at some point during their lives; it’s more common among women than men and occurs more frequently in people with anxiety disorders such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
