Are there any identifying characteristics for a hyperhidrosis patient?
Family history is a strong indication that one or more family members will be affected by hyperhidrosis. As it has been shown in many peer reviewed clinical papers, more than 51% of the patients have traces of family history. The fact that one family member or another, even not from the same family, is affected does not mean that the inheritance is guaranteed. Hyperhidrosis can skip generations. The intensity of hyperhidrosis varies from one patient to another. No other physiological or physical data are showing any tendency towards hyperhidrosis.
