Merger[edit]

Is this page really necessary ?

I thought Diaphoretic just meant sweaty

Surely the it could be included as a footnote under perspiration —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.146.186.66 (talk) 14:33, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Seems like the information much more clinically relevant than the page on perspiration. If anything, that page should be removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 129.98.120.163 (talk) 03:23, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Hyperhydrosis and Diaphoresis are symptomatically the same but with variations. In cause they are different. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 50.135.69.122 (talk) 16:41, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Merge to hyperhidrosis and perspiration[edit]

I think large pieces of this article could be merged into Hyperhidrosis and Perspiration, leaving:

Main article: Hyperhidrosis

for pathological sweating, and

Main article: Perspiration

for physiological. Mikael Häggström (talk) 11:40, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

This is a poor choice as Diaphoresis is very commonly used in various medical fields in the United States. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.27.113.154 (talk) 09:48, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Pain sweat[edit]

I wouldn't merge this either; it's a different type of sweat. I actually came here looking for information for why pain/shock sweat smells so extremely foul in comparison to normal perspiration (colloquially known as "poo sweat" because it smells of excrement). Yet I could find no information on what it is that the body ejects during these times. If anyone has sources on this, they'd be a good addition to the article. --Snowgrouse (talk) 11:36, 18 August 2013 (UTC)

In view of the comments above I have removed the merge tag. LT90001 (talk) 22:38, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
