Facial sweat may cause the patient to appear overly nervous when this is not the case. Some patients may also experience excessive facial blushing.
The amount of hand sweating varies from patient to patient and can range from mere moisture to dripping perspiration. Many patients report that their hands also feel cold. Sweaty hands make sufferers feel very uncomfortable in business and social situations and are often the most distressing manifestation of hyperhidrosis.
