Hyperhidrosis is a condition that involves excessive sweating, usually in the underarms or on the palms of hands or soles of feet. Some people with excessive sweating sweat all the time, while others find their condition is triggered by stress or heat. When severe, this condition can interfere with everyday activities, like holding a pen. It is also a source of anxiety.
What We Do
- Depending on the severity, excessive sweating can be treated with topical or oral antiperspirants (over-the-counter or prescription-strength).
- Botox injections in the underarms are often effective to combat excessive underarm sweating.
- Surgery, on rare occasions, may be warranted to treat this condition.
