Excessive sweating, medically known as Hyperhidrosis, isn’t just feeling a little damp when you’re warm or you’ve had to run back to the office from lunch! Hyperhidrosis is a debilitating condition where sufferers unnecessarily produce sweat, which causes anxiety and embarrassment that stops them from being able to enjoy their daily lives.
