Treating Moist And Clammy Skin

Fact Checked

Overview Of Clammy Skin

  • Clammy skin refers to moist or wet skin. Sweating is the body’s standard reaction to high temperature. The moisture caused when a person sweat’s has a cooling effect on your skin.
  • Fluctuations in your body such as physical effort or extreme humidity activate your sweat glands, which causes your skin to become clammy.
  • This is normal for your body. However, damp skin that occurs for no obvious reason can be an indication of a severe medical disorder.
