Sweating is the body’s way of cooling down and is necessary to prevent overheating. However, overactive sweat glands that produce more sweat than your body needs can cause discomfort, anxiety, and embarrassment. 

Duke dermatology experts are skilled at diagnosing the underlying cause of excessive sweating -- called hyperhidrosis -- and treating even the most complex cases in adults and children. Our doctors work closely with you to develop a personalized plan to treat your condition and improve your quality of life.
