What is Excessive Sweating and how can it be treated?

Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating. Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat, however, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature. It is thought that about 0.5% of the population (or about one person in 200) has some form of hyperhidrosis.

Effects start within the first week after treatment and last for an average of seven months before further injections are required. Side effects are minimal.

Frequently Asked Excessive Sweating Questions

What areas can be treated with Hyperhidrosis?

Botox is administered in the armpits to eliminate or significantly reduce sweating.

How can Hyperhidrosis be treated?

Initially, simple self-help measures may be useful:
  • Cool clothing
  • Avoiding certain foods which may trigger sweating
  • Reducing stress, tension or anxiety
  • Increased attention to personal hygiene

Treatments:

Aluminium chloride is the active ingredient of some roll-on or aerosol antiperspirants. It is used in stronger solutions to treat hyperhidrosis. The effects last only for 48 hours.
Iontophoresis is the passage of a weak electric current through a water bath. The area affected by sweating is immersed in the water and electrically charged particles clock the activity of sweat glands. When effective, this lasts for three-four days but can become longer with repeated use.
There is a variety of drug treatment available. Some of these affect the body’s entire nervous system and side-effects such as a dry mouth, drowsiness and constipation can be troublesome. Where sweating is made worse by stress or anxiety, other drugs (beta blockers) may be used with less troublesome side effects.
