Hyperhidrosis

Facts About Hyperhidrosis

It’s not a fact of life, and it’s not just “how you are.” Hyperhidrosis is a condition that many people experience, but possibly do not know is treatable.

Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which an individual sweats excessively, most commonly from the underarms, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, upper lip, or groin area. The ability to sweat is necessary to cool the body and prevent us from overheating. With hyperhidrosis, however, the body sweats from specific areas, even when it does not need cooling.

Excessive sweating can interfere with daily activities. Hands can be so sweaty that it becomes difficult to turn a doorknob or use a computer. Underarm sweat often soaks through clothes, causing embarrassing sweat marks. Chronically wet skin may also cause infections to develop.

At Associated Dermatologists, we can use a variety of treatment options to control hyperhidrosis, including oral medication and topical treatments. In more resistant cases, injection of the affected area with BotoxÒ works to block the overactive sweat glands. It has been shown to reduce hyperhidrosis in 10 to 12 weeks. Several of our skin care professionals specialize in BotoxÒ for hyperhidrosis, and their treatment methods have effective, long-lasting results.
