Sweating is your body’s way of cooling down and getting rid of some chemicals. But some people have a condition that makes them sweat too much. It can affect any part of your body, especially the head, armpits, hands, and feet. Sometimes the sweat mixes with bacteria on your skin and causes armpits and feet to smell bad.
It can be upsetting to have sweat drip from your face and palms or to have smelly feet and shoes. Some people seem to be born with this condition, while some others may sweat too much because of anxiety.
Talk with your Baylor Medicine dermatologist about treatment options to help with excessive sweating.
