Anhidrosis, also called hypohidrosis, is the inability to sweat normally, which can be a life-threatening condition.
The body can’t cool itself when a person doesn't perspire, leading to overheating and sometimes to a potentially fatal condition known as a heatstroke.
Mild anhidrosis often goes unrecognized, because anhidrosis is a condition that is difficult to diagnose.
Skin trauma and certain diseases and medications, as well as other dozens of factors can cause anhidrosis, but in some cases, the cause of this condition is never found.
Treatment for anhidrosis usually involves addressing the underlying cause.

Little or no perspiration is the primary sign of anhidrosis, which can occur:
Eccrine glands and apocrine glands are the two types of sweat glands in the skin:
The most serious complications of anhidrosis are heat-related illnesses. Because the core temperature of children rises faster than an adult’s and they dissipate heat less efficiently, they will be more vulnerable to developing this condition. Although all children should be monitored closely for overheating, but extra precautions should be taken when a child has anhidrosis. Some of the heat-related problems are:
Anhidrosis that affects a small part of your body usually isn't a problem and doesn't need treatment. Large areas of decreased perspiration, however, can be life-threatening. Anhidrosis treatment usually focuses on the cause of the problem rather than on anhidrosis specifically.
