Hyperhidrosis is a very common disorder that many people are unfamiliar with. The treatments for this condition vary on a case-by-case basis. While an actual cure to this condition has not been discovered, there are professional dermatological treatments that are effective for the symptoms and irritations that stem from the condition.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
This condition creates excessive sweating in an individual. Many experts believe that the problem lies with an abnormality within the functioning of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), which is one of the three major parts of the autonomic nervous system. The goal of treatment is to try and improve this system’s function to minimise the symptoms that can be embarrassing and irritating for sufferers.
While normal sweating is what helps the body cool itself and regulate body temperature, excessive sweating can become worrisome and publicly embarrassing. Hyperhidrosis can often be tied in with a thyroid condition as well, but not always.
Treatment Possibilities for Hyperhidrosis
The certified professional clinicians at Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics will work individually with you to obtain a treatment solution. Topical treatments that include salicylic acid are often used, although they can only give so much relief. Botox is also quite common and it can be injected into the scalp, and even the armpit relatively pain free.
Your dermatologist can also provide a written prescription for an anticholinergic agent. These have proven effective in controlling excessive sweating in the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. However, there can be side effects due to how these medications have a tendency to dry out other areas of the body, so a health professional must keep an eye on your progress.
