Hyperhidrosis is also known as excessive sweating. It affects millions of people worldwide and can have a significant impact on daily life, causing embarrassment, discomfort, and a loss of self-confidence. However, there is hope for individuals dealing with hyperhidrosis, as several treatment options can help manage and alleviate the symptoms.
Certain prescription creams containing anticholinergic agents can be effective in reducing sweating. When applied to the affected areas, these creams work by inhibiting the chemical signals that stimulate sweat production. Our doctor will be able to prescribe the appropriate cream at the correct dose for you. The doctor might also recommend a special medicated body wash containing an ingredient that kills odour causing bacteria, if this is an issue associated with your hyperhidrosis.
Another popular treatment option for hyperhidrosis are botulinum toxin (e.g. BOTOX®) injections. The toxin is injected into the affected areas, such as the underarms, palms, or feet, to temporarily block the release of acetylcholine, a chemical that triggers sweat production. The effects can last for several months before a repeat treatment is necessary and the injections are generally safe and well-tolerated.
