Hyperhidrosis, also known as polyhidrosis or sudorrhea, is a condition characterized by excessive sweating. The sweating can affect just one specific area or the whole body.
Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating that disrupts normal activities. Episodes of excessive sweating occur at least once a week for no clear reason and have an effect on social life or daily activities.
Signs and symptoms of hyperhidrosis may include:
A doctor may refer the person to a skin specialist, or dermatologist.
They may recommend:
The hands and feet are submerged in a bowl of water. A painless electric current is passed through the water. Most patients need two to four 20-30 minute treatments.
Botox injections block the nerves that trigger the sweat glands. Patients with hyperhidrosis may need several injections for effective results.
These medications inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses. Patients generally notice an improvement in symptoms within about 2 weeks.
This surgical intervention is only recommended in severe cases which have not responded to other treatments. The nerves that carry messages to the sweat glands are cut.
In Silk Clinics we treat it with Botox injections, which it’s more safe easy and simple procedure that the result lasts up to 6 months.
