Your daughter is dealing with hyperhidrosis.
Most cases are considered idiopathic. This means there is no underlying cause for the condition. However, a detailed history and physical by the primary care provider should be done to rule out any disorders or conditions that could be the cause of this problem (thyroid disorder, diabetes, neurological conditions etc.).
