Eating spicy food, exercise, or basking in the sun can indeed make sweat pouring down profusely. But excessive sweating or also called hyperhidrosis, can be a symptom of being overweight, diabetes, thyroid disorders, or infection. In general, sweating is normal and healthy. This is a sign that your body needs to cool down when working harder. Sweat glands on the skin sweat when body temperature rises. This happens when you exercise, have a fever, feel anxious, or stress. Consumption of spicy foods, soft drinks, caffeine, and alcoholic beverages can also stimulate excessive sweating. But if you sweat more and more often without cause, including your palms often wet, then you need to be vigilant. There could be an underlying serious medical problem. Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can cause stress, embarrassment, worry, and feeling insecure in the middle of relationships. Many people are not aware that this excessive sweating may need treatment and can have serious consequences.
