Causes of Sleep Hyperhidrosis and Curing Tips

Sleep Hyperhidrosis is a health disorder characterized by excessive sweating at night or during sleep. If your friend is suffering from the problem of night sweat, then he is definitely experiencing the symptoms of hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is categorized into various categories depending on where the sweat occurs. The person can feel excessive sweating in feet, hands, under arms and face. The major cause of excessive sweating is due to uncontrolled nervous system. Our body possesses two types of nervous system, namely somatic and autonomic nervous system.

Autonomic nervous system is the one that is responsible for night sweating. It helps in controlling the rate of breathing and production of sweat. This nervous system is further divided into para sympathetic and sympathetic nervous system. Sympathetic nervous system is responsible for activating and deactivating the sweat glands. When this nervous system becomes overactive it often results in the formation of sweat.

There are no medical treatments or ways found for curing excessive sweating in your hands, feet and face. You can try the technique of providing low level electric current to yourself. This process is known as iontophoresis. This low level of current will not harm you but will definitely draw out over active sweat ducts.
