Premature Perspiration

Premature Perspiration (PP) is a vicious, sweaty cycle. Unlike physically-induced sweat, it’s triggered by emotion. Physical activity causes your body to heat up and sweating regulates your temperature. Stress and emotional responses can also cause adrenaline releases which in turn trigger an increase in sweating.
