See larger Jacqueline Fernandez, 18, used to suffer from hyperhidrosis, a disorder that causes excessive sweating of the hands, feet, face and underarms. It was a problem she tried to hide from others, which could be difficult because of her outgoing personality. Hyperhidrosis is believed to be caused by overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system. Fernandez underwent a surgery called endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy in July, which has stopped the sweating. Lexey Swall/Staff
