Excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis)

Perspiring is a completely normal and necessary bodily function. It serves to cool or regulate body temperature: The higher the outside temperature, the greater the amount of perspiration consequently produced by the body. Even certain situations, like stress or excitement, can induce perspiration.

While higher temperatures naturally cause increased perspiration in most people, there are around 2.5 million individuals in Germany who perspire heavily even on cooler days. These individuals are also prone to sudden perspiration attacks, which involves secreting greater amounts of perspiration as an immediate response to certain circumstances. This can lead to extremely uncomfortable and even embarrassing moments, sometimes even subjecting sufferers to social isolation.
