What is Hyperhidrosis?
“Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature”. (Hyperhidrose – Association canadienne de dermatologie, 2019)
It is commonly described as excessive sweating of the armpits, hands and/or feet.
