Sweat From The Palms And Feet?
Sweat that comes out of the palm of the hand / foot does not have pores, so where does the sweat get out?
Hello Meisya Moningka,
Skin pores are more often used to mention sebaceous glands, which are glands that produce oil. Sebaceous glands in the skin can be enlarged or blocked (blackheads, pimples) so that they can be easily seen for example on the face. Sebaceous glands are found in all parts of the body except in the palms and feet.
Unlike the sebaceous glands, there are more so-called sweat glands. This sweat glands estuary is so small that it is almost invisible. Sweat glands are also spread in body parts. The palms of the hands and feet have many sweat glands. The sweat glands play a very important role in the body's thermoregulation process. When the environment is hot, the body will produce more sweat to "cool" the body. Sweat glands in the palms and feet also produce more sweat in other conditions, for example when doing deep breathing, experiencing psychological stress, and local touch stimulation. You certainly have felt the palms of your hands sweating when you are worried about certain situations.
In the case of hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is produced not because of the influence of hot air or when you are not doing any activity. Hyperhidrosis of the palm can be found in the following circumstances:
Hypoglycemia Hyperthyroidism Menopause Diabetes Heart attack Disorders of the nervous system If your hands are sweaty without a clear trigger and other symptoms arise such as palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, a feeling like going to faint, you should immediately see a doctor. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
