What You Can Do To Control Excessive Sweating

Do you think you are sweating beyond the normal? Do you have excessive sweating when you are about to deliver a public speech or presentation? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then keep reading.

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating that goes beyond the body’s normal thermoregulatory needs.  There are 2 main types - primary or idiopathic with no known cause, or secondary which is due to an underlying medical condition such as diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, menopause or certain medications.

Non-medical treatments for hyperhidrosis include:

  • Lifestyle modifications such as avoiding triggers that may exacerbate sweating such as spicy foods or caffeine

  • Using antiperspirants

  • Wearing loose-fitting clothing made from breathable fabrics like cotton

  • Practicing relaxation techniques to manage stress

Medical treatments for hyperhidrosis include:

  • Oral and topical medications, and botulinum toxin injection.

  • Botulinum toxin injection blocks nerve signals that cause sweating.

It is done once every 6-8 months.  It is said to reduce 97-99% of sweating.  It can be done on the underarms, hands, and feet.
