Hyperhidrosis is sweating that is beyond what is expected for the environmental conditions you are in. It is sweating that causes significant interference in daily living.
Not only does it cause anxiety and emotional distress for those suffering from this disorder, it can also be a risk factor for increased infection, eczematous dermatitis and muscle cramps.
Most patients who present to me with hyperhidrosis have had the condition for many years. Sufferers often go to great lengths to hide the visable effects of their condition. This can include wearing black clothes on the sunniest day and avoidane shaking hands if their palms are affected.
The good news is that this condition can be managed!
Botox can be an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, including excessive armpit sweating, foot and hands. We have been treating this condition for the last 15 years so please do contact us if you are suffering from this condition.
