Excessive sweating is considered as a medical. Excessive sweating is referred to as hyperhidrosis. It is a condition where the body excretes sweat in certain areas and in higher quantities than expected. 

Doctors regard excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis as an inherited condition. It can affect a patient in many ways, including altering his or her social relationships, personal confidence and emotional levels. 

Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of sweat glands; however, any part of the body may be affected. 


There are two types of hyperhidrosis:
- focal or localized hyperhidrosis, where only certain parts of the body are affected, such as the armpits, hands, feet or face, and 
- generalized hyperhidrosis, where the entire body is affected. 

Hyperhidrosis can also be either:
- primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis, where there is no apparent cause for the excessive sweating, and 
- secondary hyperhidrosis, where the excessive sweating is the result of an underlying health condition, such as an overactive thyroid gland. 

Secondary hyperhidrosis could be one of the following causes:
- In people with a past history of spinal cord injuries 
- Associated with peripheral neuropathies 
- Associated with probable brain lesions 
- Associated with intrathoracic neoplasms or lesions 
- Associated with systemic medical problems
- Menopausal state
- Due to drugs

The good news is that hyperhidrosis is a very treatable disease. It is just a matter of finding and adapting the right solution for the particular problem you have. 

Antidepressant and anxiolytic drugs are often commonly used by allopathy, which produced drug dependency and have several side effects. And surgical procedure like endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) can be done. Which are quite expensive.

Many more that suffer from sweating problems have found their cure for hyperhidrosis in the form of a natural homeopathic treatments that have helped many break free from profuse sweating or hyperhidrosis. 

Homeopathic way of treatment is different from allopathy. Hyperhidrosis is nothing but an expression of the disturbance in the inner hormonal balance and this is expressed in the form of the profuse discharge. Hence, it is required to be treated at the inner level rather than treating it by local application of cream and antibiotics. 

Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution and so on. 

Homeopathy provides natural constitutional remedies for treating this condition from the roots and not just working on the symptom but repairs the derangement which is causing this. It offers excellent treatment which is effective, harmless, and without any side effects. It is recommended in the most obstinate cases. 

Today homeopathic remedies are the best non surgical solution for hyperhidrosis or profuse sweating or perspiration.
