What is Plantar Hyperhidrosis?
Plantar hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by excessively sweaty feet. It often accompanies Palmar Hyperhidrosis, severely sweaty hands.
Cause of Plantar Hyperhidrosis
Plantar Hyperhidrosis is caused by hyperactive sweat glands in the feet in response to stressful situations, increased temperatures, and other instances. Everyday activities may excessively stimulate the sweat glands in the feet leading to unusually sweaty feet.
