Excessive sweating of the hands or palms, also called palmar hyperhidrosis, is an annoying, embarrassing, and confidence-wrecking problem. From ruined paperwork to slippery handshakes, sweaty palms can negatively impact your social life, your education, and your career.
Or, perhaps your feet feel soggy and sloppy all the time? Does sweat ruin your shoes? Are you afraid to wear sandals or flip-flops for fear that you'll slip right out of them?
Do you leave damp footprints when you walk barefoot? Are your feet freezing cold in the winter because they are sweating?
These are just some of the experiences of people with sweaty feet, or plantar hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis, also called excessive sweating, is a medical condition that affects different body areas including the feet. Fortunately, there are treatments available.
