Don't Sweat The Small Stuff - Hyperhidrosis

About 3 percent of the American population suffers from a condition called Hyperhidrosis 
(hi-purr-hi-DROE-sis). Are you sweating excessively even when it is cool outside? I nstead of trying to cover it up, check in with your dermatologist.

Excessive sweating happens when a person sweats more than is necessary.  Yes, it's necessary to sweat. Sweating cools the body, which prevents us from overheating.  People who have hyperhidrosis, however, sweat when the body does not need cooling.  Commonly affected areas of the body include: face, palms, feet and underarms.

This excessive sweating can interfere with everyday activities. Hands can become so sweaty that it is difficult to turn a doorknob, use a computer or shake someone's hand.  Sweat from the underarms often soaks through clothes, causing obvious sweat marks.  Because the skin is often wet, skin infections can occur.

Before treatment begins, it is important to find out why you have excessive sweating.  Some medical testing may be necessary to rule out an underlying medical condition. 

Treatment options depend on the type of hyperhidrosis and where the excessive sweating occurs.  Some treatments used are clinical prescription strength antiperspirants, Lasers, FDA approved Botulinum toxin injections, prescription medication and surgery.

By seeing a dermatologist, many people find a treatment option that effectively controls their excessive sweating.  Often improving their quality of life.
