Skin Sweating Disorders

Skin Sweating Disorders

Sweat glands under the skin produce sweat to help keep the body cool. Sweating increases with warmer temperatures, stress, or nervousness. Sweat consists of water, salt, and other chemicals produced and excreted from the body.

Several sweating disorders require clinical care by a physician or other health care professional. Listed in the directory below are some, for which we have provided a brief overview.
