Hello, Anon!

Thank you for your question today.

Have you always had this kind of sweating? Or is this more
recent?  Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive sweating. The condition can be due to an underlying health condition or have no apparent cause. Some medications can also cause flushing or sweating.

*For females, sweating can be caused by hot flashes - intense heat that starts in your chest and rises to your neck and head. Hot flashes and night sweats happen as a result of changing estrogen levels.
