Sweating is normal. We sweat from the skin to take away heat from our body and so sweating is essential for the body to regulate temperature. The sweat evaporates, and this cools down our skin. We sweat about half a litre within 24 hours. Some people sweat more than half a litre even in cool climates, this is known as Hyperhidrosis/Excessive Sweating.
When we sweat too much (even when we are not physically active) the affected part of the body (for example the palms) will be persistently wet. After evaporation occurs the palms will cool down, causing the hands to turn cold and damp. Excessive foot perspiration can cause further uncomfortable problems; the feet can often feel as though they are submerged in a puddle of water – allowing bacteria and Athletes Foot to develop, along with foot odour.Treating Hyperhidrosis is easier than you would imagine.

Sweating - Why we sweat?
If we sweat too much the question of "why do I sweat so much" automatically comes to mind. When looking at the process of sweating, it should be noted that the sweating is a very important physiologically process. Perspiration is technically/professionally called diaphoresis. The human body has from its birth 2-4 million sweat glands, whose principal role is to cool the body if a person is forced by internal or external influences of heat.
Sweating is primarily the first effective mechanism to combat excess heat that the body produces from various activities. Through the evaporating stage, cooling of the skin is achieved. This sweating principle holds our body's operating conditions to a constant temperature.
The opposite of sweating would be freezing. If the body temperature is balanced, we feel comfortable in our skin. The body must neither freeze nor sweat. This balance is what our body tries to produce. The sweating also serves as a carrier for pheromones and body odors. In part, this is also important for interpersonal relations. Nevertheless, each man also transpires sweat in peace. This continuous sweating is responsible to keep the skin smooth. If this balance is disrupted in the negative, one has the effect of dry, brittle or chapped skin. The opposite is you sweat too much.
For example, sweaty hands will cause the skin to feel damp and cold. Extremes, strong, and prolonging sweating is called hyperhidrosis.
