HYPERHIDROSIS

ANSWER


Hyperhidrosis is either generalized or focal. The focal hyperhidrosis consist of axillary, palmar, plantar and forehead type (Kreyden, 2004).  The main symptom of this condition is excessive sweating. The generalized hyperhidrosis according to Lefrandt (2010) is usually accompanied by an endocrine or neurological disorder. On the other hand focal hyperhidrosis is a condition that could be described as less medical in nature. It is a socially embarrassing condition which is triggered by emotional and mental activity. In axillary hyperhidrosis the patient ends up staining his or her clothes and develops wet arm pits. On the other hand, palmar hyperhidrosis leads to wet, slippery and cold palms. Holzle (2003) argues that the patient is likely to develop delayed type hypersensitivity. Due to the embarrassing nature of focal hyperhidrosis the patient is also likely to spend a lot of energy hiding this condition socially.
