Sweating is a natural process that occurs during the summer or due to stress. When the wardrobe is constantly wet, it is a sign that something is happening in the body. Sweating is an individual characteristic of the organism that is intensified during physical or emotional effort. When sweat pours from the face at rest — it is hyperhidrosis. There is local and general hyperhidrosis. Local sweating is sweating on the palms, hands, arms, armpits, feet or a specific place on the body. General hyperhidrosis is profuse sweating of the whole body. The pattern can be diabetes, obesity, problems with the thyroid gland, chronic infection (tuberculosis), pregnancy, menopause, oncological diseases (leukemia, lymphoma), the use of certain medications, Parkinson’s disease and others. Many people sweat when they experience strong emotions – fear, sadness, joy, excitement when the body gets rid of excess hormones or norepinephrine.
