The clinical symptoms of hyperhidrosis are pretty much straight forward. The hands or the feet are excessively sweating down to the level of dripping. It happens usually during day and evening hours not at all while they are sleeping. Attempts to connect this condition to any other illness have been tried but so far no association with other illnesses have been found. At present we know that the root cause of excessive sweating is a genetic one. Those who are affected start to have sweating problems at an early age which becomes socially and functionally bothersome as their age progresses. For no obvious reason the hands can start sweating and it can happen in a very relaxed and non-active situation.
As in a non life threatening situation attempts should be made conservatively to help with this issue. There are alternative treatment approaches available that should be considered and tried first before any surgical solution is being offered.
