Sweating is a natural mechanism by which excess heat is given off by the body through the sweat glands which are present in large numbers all over the skin. But in some cases, this sweating becomes excessive, and sweat globules appear around the neck, cheeks, chin, lips, forehead, head and in the hair. An observer would begin to wonder whether the person who is sweating so much is going in for a heart attack. The medical term for this condition is cranial hyperhidrosis and apart from the embarrassment its appearance causes, the body odor which it gives off is difficult to bear.
The sweating mechanism of our body is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system and sweating is generally a result of being in a stressful situation, or an anxiety-ridden environment, or in the case of a nervous person, while giving a public speech, etc. It is a hereditary problem, found more in obese persons than in their slimmer counterparts, and can also manifest when your metabolic rate goes up on account of having caffeinated drinks or smoking.
