Health Tip: Why Can't I Stop Sweating?

-- Everyone sweats, but sweating profusely may be a sign of hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excessive sweating.

The American Academy of Dermatology mentions these risk factors:

  • Having another member of the family who sweats heavily.
  • Having a medical condition such as gout, a tumor or diabetes.
  • Taking certain medications or supplements.
  • Undergoing menopause, which can trigger hot flashes.
