What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a ccommon disorder where the person who as this condition sweats excessively. About 2-3% of people suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Excessive sweating of the palm and sole sweating often begins around adolescence, the age 13 (on the average), while underarm sweating tends to start in late adolescence. Sweating may be embarrassing because it may stain clothes, ruin romantic situations, and complicates business and social interactions.
 
 
What Causes Hyperhidrosis?
Most of the time, excessive sweating can occur in people who are otherwise healthy, although sometimes a neurological, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can cause hyperhidrosis. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.

What is the Treatment for Hyperhidrosis?

  • Over-the-counter antiperspirants containing a low dose of metal salt (usually aluminum) are typically tried first since they are readily available
  • Prescription strength antiperspirants, which contain aluminum chloride hexahydrate.
  • Iontophoresis, a device which passes ionized tap water through the skin using direct electricity.
  • Oral medications, Anticholinergics reduce sweating.
  • Botox-A, has been approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating.
  • Surgery. A procedure called thoracic sympathectomy may be considered as a last resort.
