Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a condition characterized by sweating more than what is necessary for thermoregulation. It can affect various parts of the body, including the palms, soles of the feet, underarms, and face. Here are some non-invasive treatments and frequently asked questions about excessive sweating:

Non-Invasive Treatments

1. Topical Antiperspirants

  • How it works: Aluminum chloride-based antiperspirants block sweat glands temporarily, reducing sweat production.
  • Effectiveness: Effective for mild to moderate hyperhidrosis; prescription-strength formulas are available.

2. Iontophoresis

  • How it works: Hands or feet are submerged in water while a low electrical current is passed through. This blocks sweat gland activity.
  • Effectiveness: Effective for palmoplantar hyperhidrosis; requires multiple sessions for lasting results.

3. Botulinum Toxin Injections

  • How it works: Botox injections temporarily block nerve signals that trigger sweat production in targeted areas.
  • Effectiveness: Highly effective for underarm sweating and lasts several months per treatment.

4. Oral Medications:

  • How it works: Medications like anticholinergics can reduce overall sweating by blocking nerve signals.
  • Effectiveness: Can be effective for generalized hyperhidrosis but may have side effects.
