Hyperhidrosis (HH) is the excessive production of sweating, which can be primary and focal or secondary. The most commonly affected sites are the armpits, palms, soles, and face. It causes much discomfort and affects self-esteem and quality of life. Many treatment options have been proposed, both medical and surgical.
