Sweat plays an important role in the body, as it helps keep us cool and helps the body fight infection. Normal people produce about a liter of sweat every day, which typically evaporates before you can feel it. However, there is a portion of the population who struggle with excessive sweating, most often due to a medical condition known as hyperhidrosis. This is where the body produces much more sweat than is necessary. Luckily, family care physicians
and community health clinics have been working hard to identify the various causes of hyperhidrosis, and have been working on various methods to help patients control excessive sweating.
