The diagnose of a local Hyperhidrosis (profused sweating in defined parts like sweaty hands ar sweaty feet) is mostly made by dermatologists. Normal Doctors are mostly not common with the condition of excessive sweating, and many of them did not know what can be done for such a condition, like the throusands of people sweating too much in certain areas. This is maybe a reson why so many having a severe hyperhidrosis still sweat.
The most areas who are affected when having a local Hyperhidrosis are:
Palmar Hyperhidrosis - Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating of the hands
Plantar Hyperhidrosis - Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating of the feet
Axilar Hyperhidrosis - Hyperhidrosis underarm
Exact definitions of hyperhidrosis:
Hyperhidrosis is not a fixed condition, it is defined in different ways. There is a significant difference between the forms of Hyperhidrosis.
Sweating is a normal and important for cooling the body when we make a workout or when we are in stress. If we sweat too much when being calm then there is somthng wrong with the bodys cooling mechanism.
This profused sweating is called Hyperhidrosis. Behind a Hyperhidrosis there is mostly a complex system of different psychics and physic factors. For the most it is luckily (although heavy) only a local problem. Some people having a hyperhidrosis all over the body, means teh whole body sweats. This is called a generalized Hyperhidrosis.
In conlusion we have first two determinations
Local Hyperhidrosis = Sweating in local and defined parts - Sweaty hands sweaty feet, head sweting or sweating underarms
Generalized HYperhidrosis: Sweating of the whole body or large parts of the body
