Excessive Sweating

Sweating is normal but excessive sweating isn’t. Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a common disorder affecting people. Various areas can be affected –palms, feet, underarms and facial sweating. It is thought that hyperhidrosis is a result of over activity of the sympathetic system.

Hyperhidrosis can have severe physiological consequences such as clammy hands, dehydration, and skin infections secondary to sweating. Hyperhidrosis can also have devastating emotional effects on an individual life.

With the recent advances in medicine, many forms of treatment are available to treat hyperhidrosis. Medications, topical antiperspirants, muscle relaxant injections and surgery have been tried to treat hyperhidrosis. Muscle relaxant injections are a proven treatment option for severe underarm sweating when antiperspirants fail.
