Hyperhidrosis and Family
Do you ever wish you could talk to some of the relatives in your family tree? I do, especially those that lived some time ago, like 100 or 150 years ago. If you have focal hyperhidrosis, chances are that if you were able to talk to some of those relatives you would find out they also had an excessive sweating condition. There is mounting evidence that shows, in some cases, hyperhidrosis is passed along to offspring. In other words, there is a genetic component related to the condition.
