Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)

  • Hyperhidrosis 1
    There are several symptoms for hyperhidrosis. A sign of excessive sweating would be visible sweat while a person is sedentary. If everyday activities are difficult due to sweat, the skin peels due to being damp with sweat too often, and skin infections are a constant problem, hyperhidrosis may be the cause.
  • Hyperhidrosis 2
    There are several treatments for hyperhidrosis that a doctor may suggest. The most common would be an antiperspirant, which is applied to the skin and blocks the sweat glands in an attempt to get the body to stop producing sweat. A doctor might also suggest Iontophoresis or Botulinum toxin injections. Medication may be prescribed or surgery may be considered in some cases.
  • Hyperhidrosis 3
    Hyperhidrosis is normally an indicator or result of another disorder or condition in the body, but can be hereditary. This includes but is not limited to menopause, obesity, and nerve disorders. Due to menopause, women are more likely to be diagnosed with hyperhidrosis. This condition is also found in children and young teens.
