Medical diseases and some medicines can cause excessive sweating or secondary generalised hyperhidrosis. It manifests in a person’s later years. This sort of sweating may affect the complete body or just one place. It’s also possible to sweat while sleeping. The following are examples of things that can go wrong to cause this type of disorder:

  • stroke
  • Menopause spinal cord damage
  • lung disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Infectious illnesses include TB and HIV/AIDS
