simple explanation

Some people sweat too little (a condition called hypohidrosis).

(See also Introduction to Sweating Disorders.)

Diminished sweating is usually limited to a specific area of the body. It can be caused by a skin injury (such as trauma radiation infection [such as leprosy] or inflammation) or by a connective tissue disorder (such as systemic sclerosis systemic lupus erythematosus or Sjögren syndrome) that wastes away the sweat glands.

Diminished sweating also may be caused by drugs especially those that have anticholinergic effects (see Anticholinergic: What Does It Mean?). Nerve damage caused by diabetes (diabetic neuropathy) can also cause diminished sweating as can a variety of syndromes existing at or before birth. Sometimes people who have very severe heatstroke stop sweating.

A doctor makes the diagnosis of diminished sweating by observing the person. If the person is unable to tolerate heat or has diminished sweating over a large portion of the body the person may overheat.

The best treatment of diminished sweating is to cool the body by using air-conditioning and wearing wet garments.
