    Hyperhidrosis (HH) is defined as excessive sweating affecting any part of the body. Excessive sweating is a disorder due to the over-stimulation of cholinergic receptors on eccrine glands. For many patients, it is debilitating and impairs social interactions and affects patients' quality of life, resulting in social and work impairment and emotional distress.
