hi
u have hyperhydrosis.
it mainly due to over activity of ur sweat glands.
it may be related to genetics.
Nervousness or excitement can exacerbate the situation for many sufferers.
Other factors can play a role; certain foods and drinks, nicotine, caffeine, and smells can trigger a response.
most of the time it is normal.
u need to apply powder to reduce it.
consult dermatologist for treatment

I am a 53 year old male who recently lost my job and changed high blood pressure medication (Losartan 100MG). Over the last 6 months, i have began sweating more than normal. The sweat occurs on the palms of my hands, soles of my feet, under my arms and on my scrotum (which is the most uncomfortable). it appears to occur wherever I have sweat glands. The odd things is, the sweat is sticky (my skin becomes tacky and feels like I have glue or something on it). It even occurs after I bath. I have had blood & urine tests that revealed nothing abnormal. I have setup appointments with a Dermatologist. any thoughts as to what could be the cause?

Healthy 15 year old football player at football practice experienced excessive sweating, but continued to hydrate at scheduled water breaks during practice. Left practice that night feeling overly exhausted.. He went to work out the following morning and began to feel dizzy and uncoordinated durning the workout. A couple hours after the workout while in class, he felt sick and went to the nurse s office. He was then sent to the hospital where they gave him saline for dehydration. He was subsequently admitted to the hospital the very next day and has been there for 5 days. Testing shows no brain tumor, no MS, no cancer. His left side is weak and he has muscle fatigue in his left eye, also still very lethargic. What else could this be?

About four years ago, I was diagnosed with ventricular tachicardia. I was given a catheter ablation to treat it, and it corrected an irregular heart beat that I've had since I can remember, but I still experience the rapid heart beats every now and again when Im out running or doing some other strenuous activity. Another thing that I've had since I can remember is excessive sweating, and I mean very excessive. What it takes for a normal person to sweat, it would take A LOT LESS for me. My question is, is the excessive sweating linked to the tachycardia? Of course, tachycardia causes the fast heart beat which in turn causes the sweating, but even when Im not experiencing the rapid irregular heart beats, I still manage to completely soak a t shirt when the guy next to me whose done the same amount of work is completely dry, aside from a few sweat beads on the forehead.

I suffer from excessive sweating . My body is nearly always clammy and my head drives me insane. I have sweat running down behind my ears and my face beads with sweat. My mother suffered the same problem. I am 58 yrs old. This has become worse in the last 5 to 8 yrs. I am on efexor for severe chronic depression. I also take seroquin, prescribed in the last 2 mnths. Mobic, nexium and I take panadol osteo. It can be only 2 or 3 degrees, and as soon as I start to vacuum I start to sweat. I usually wear a sweat band at work . I don t even own a coat. If I have a warm drink it starts.

I am healing from a chocking phobia- it made me not eat. now im 120. i lost 10 pounds. But now that I'm eating, I still cant fill out. i been wondering if its my acid reflux. everything i eat churns and cramps in my stomach. i always get bloaded. I am very depressed in all aspects, especially when the younger people make fun of me or act like they are better just because they are more filled out. I also have hyperhidrosis..
