Axillary Hyperhidrosis



Axillary hyperhidrosis is a form of primary hyperhidrosis that causes an individual to produce excessive sweat in the underarm region. This form of hyperhidrosis causes overactive sweat glands in the underarm areas to produce more sweat than necessary to regulate body temperature. For individuals with axillary hyperhidrosis, the overactivity of their sweat glands can be an uncomfortable and embarrassing problem.
