Anhidrosis is a disease of the Anhidrosis.
When Sweat Glands fail to produce sweat, it is Anhidrosis.
Sweat Glands are distributed in the whole body. When the body is hot they secret a watery secretion called Sweat. Sweating means the air plant of the Body. When the body becomes hot, the Sweat Glands ( Eccrine Gland ) secret sweat to cool down the Body.
But in Anhidrosis, the body fails to cool itself. It may cause overheating, Heatstroke and other fatal conditions.

Types of Sweat Glands
Eccrine Glands
Apocrine glands
They are distributed through out the Whole Body. They produce transparent and odorless liquid which consists of small amount of Urea and Salt.
When these glands are not able to produce sweat it causes problems.

Causes of Anhidrosis
Genetic Factors
Nervous Disorder
Parkinson's disease
Some kind of Medication
Infection in the Sweat Glands
Absence of Sweat Glands by Birth or Some kind of Blockage in the Sweat Glands

Sir my brother is 3 years old and he doesnt sweat from his birth....sir if he had no sweat gland so there is any tratment for it.....
30 Aug 2016
Dear Sanjay
He is only three years old, my personal advise is not to give him any medicine. Just try to give him a healthy diet. If you doubt about his Sweat Glands, you may consult your doctor. Take him out every day and do some physical activities with him. Some times, the glands may develop in the growing age of a the person. So, don't worry and let him grow.

Dear Ferhan
I advise you to take 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda in the whole day. Divide it into 4 parts and add it to a glass of water. Also Add cucumber and Peppermint to your daily diet.
Join some yoga classes and daily go for yoga. Always remember that chronic disease may take time to heal. So follow the suggestion for at least 2 months.
