Sweating is the body’s mechanism to cool itself. Even though we all sweat, there are people who sweat more than normal.

People with hyperhidrosis sweat so much that sweat could literally be dripping from their body parts or their clothes could be wet from the sweat. They sweat even when it’s not hot and they are just resting. For instance, someone could just be sweating while seated and watching the television.

If you have been well all along and then started sweating, don’t just ignore it. Sometimes the body tries to speak to us and we fail to pay attention. Do not let the excessive sweating embarrass you or make you uncomfortable when you are around people.
