Why do I seem to sweat more than other people?

Post by Asiaferret » Thu Jul 02, 2015 3:54 am

I am a Malaysian Chinese and I am 20 years old. Ever since I came to (http://www.aimst.edu.my/) Aimst University at about age 18, I note that I sweat very easily especially during hot afternoon (s). When I come for tutorial classes my formal shirt is often drenched with sweat and sweat may still pour down from my body even under air conditioning. I may sweat when I feel nervous but I guess this is not significant to my condition. My mass is about 51 to 53 kg and I am a male. Please advice and do take your time.

A variety of other factors can cause excessive sweating, including underlying medical conditions and medicines.

For instance:

Frey's syndrome is a condition in which sweating occurs from just one side of the face when certain foods are eaten. It occurs after surgery on, or injury near, the saliva-producing glands.
Medications taken for endocrine problems, diabetes, and thyroid disease can also trigger excessive sweating.
So can certain high blood pressure medicines, as well as some antidepressant medications.
In addition, heavy sweating can be caused by infections, certain cancers, heart or lung disease, menopause, and sometimes even a stroke.-BOC Sciences ( http://www.bocsci.com )
