Hello Liliandriani, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


The condition of excessive sweating triggered by specific things (situation at altitude, viewing pictures / videos of altitude) can be caused by altitude phobia (acrophobia), especially when accompanied by palpitations, feelings of fear / anxiety / stress in these conditions. Another possibility is anxiety disorders and hyperhidrosis (conditions of excessive sweating due to activity, hot weather, to other possibilities such as excess thyroid hormone).


Reducing specific phobias (one of them is phobia of altitude), one of which is the desensitization method, or training the brain and body to get accustomed to altitude exposure, starting from harmless conditions such as imagining, then looking at pictures, then looking at videos, to the height. It's a good idea to do your desensitization exercises accompanied by people who don't have the same phobia. No need to hesitate to consult with your doctor or psychiatrist if the desensitization method fails and if you feel very disturbed by these symptoms.


That's all our advice, hope it's useful, good night.
