What are Sweaty Palms (Palmar Hyperhidrosis)?
Sweaty palms (Palmar hyperhidrosis) is a physical condition with uncontrollable excessive hand sweating. It may cause severe psychological, social and/or professional disability. Problems such as difficulties handling paper, pens, buttons, tools, electronic equipment, as well as the need to avoid handshakes force many people to seek treatment. The pathophysiological cause for the excessive sweating is still unknown but the condition is related to over-activity in the so-called “sympathetic nervous system”, a system of nerves over which we have no control. Emotional stimuli seem to have a stronger effect on the sweat glands in certain individuals.
