    So you are 52. remember hyperhidrosis beginning in later life could be the result of secondary causes like any systemic diseases, metabolic disorders, or adverse effects of medication use. Are you on any medications like propranolol or any antidepressants or consume alcohol. these could also lead to hyperhidrosis. If any antiperspirants are not working for you and as it has started after 40's so i would suggest you to go for a systemic check for any neurologic or metabolic disorder. please consult your doctor .if you have any questions feel free to ask us.

    Oh sorry for late reply. Your Doctor might check for metabolic disorder like thyrotoxicosis, diabetes mellitus, hypoglycemia, gout, pheochromocytoma. As sweating is a function of the sympathetic nervous system. So hyperhidrosis may be the consequence of autonomic dysregulation. Please visit your doctor for further ruleout of these disease.

    It is a condition in which a person sweats excessively. It may be controlled with strong antiperspirants.
