Most of us can relate to the feeling of breaking out in a sweat during periods of intense emotional stress or physical exertion; perspiration is a normal bodily function that helps our body regulate temperature and eliminate waste. However, when sweating becomes problematic due to a condition known as hyperhidrosis, it can have negative physical and psychological ramifications.
Nerves and stress can trigger sweating—especially on the face, the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. Underlying medical conditions such as menopause, diabetes, nervous system disorders, overactive thyroid gland and certain medications can contribute to excessive sweating that occurs all over the body.
There are a variety of treatment options to manage hyperhidrosis, ranging from oral medications, prescription antiperspirants, surgical procedures and treatments with Botox® Therapeutic. To learn more about treatment options for excessive sweating, we welcome you to arrange a personal, professional consultation with us.
