Q3. Who is most likely to get excessive sweating?

A3. The answer to that is anyone! Men, women and even children can develop excessive sweating for a variety of reasons.

It often occurs during puberty or during your twenties although this usually applies to primary hyperhidrosis only.

Secondary hyperhidrosis can develop at any age and the extent of this will depend upon the cause, e.g. the medical condition causing it. One thing to remember with excessive sweating is that it can stay with you for many years. But the prognosis is good for this condition.
