What Is Anhidrosis?

2. Signs and Symptoms

Some of the signs and symptoms of anhidrosis or hypohidrosis are flushing, feeling hot, dizziness, little to no perspiration, muscle cramps, and weakness. The lack of sweat can be generalized, in scattered patches, or only occurring in a single area. Since this issue can cause areas that can sweat to perspire more as a compensation mechanism, it is possible for the affected individual to sweat profusely at one part while very little or none at all at the other. Since anhidrosis or hypohidrosis that affects a large portion of the body prevents the body to cool itself, it is best to avoid hard physical labor, vigorous exercise, and hot weather as it can cause heat exhaustion, heat cramps, or heatstroke.
