Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis (hyperhydrosis), or excessive sweating, is a condition that affects the lives of many millions of people worldwide. It causes excessive sweating of the hands, hyperhidrosis of the face, feet and hyperhidrosis of the armpits.

While the exact cause of hyperhidrosis is still unknown, it causes sufferers acute embarrassment, as well as severe physiological symptoms.

Sufferers of hyperhidrosis spend their lives trying to find ways to stop sweating, or avoiding any and all activities that may cause this excessive perspiration. They also search for cures for hyperhidrosis with limited success.

Previous hyperhidrosis treatments included excessive sweating surgery and medication prescribed by specialist hyperhidrosis doctors. Fortunately, medical science and nature have now found a new and effective way to cure excessive sweating with cosmetic injectables.

Hyperhydrosis is a form of uncontrollable sweating. Of course, sweating is important for the body’s thermal regulation. However, hyperhidrosis means the body sweats much more than is necessary to control temperature.

This kind of excessive sweating is often uncontrollable, embarrassing and not anticipated, and leads sufferers to search for solutions.

Excessive sweating or perspiration can occur in several parts of the body including the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis), palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), feet (pedal hyperhidrosis), and upper lip or forehead (facial hyperhidrosis).

What causes this excessive sweating?

Although the possible reasons for excessive sweating or the exact causes of this excessive sweating are unknown, it appears to be an inherited trait that stops the body from regulating its temperature properly. High temperatures, anxiety and certain medications may increase perspiration, but they do not cause hyperhidrosis.

For some researchers, it is thought that hyperhidrosis may be the result of over activity in the sympathetic nervous system.

Hyperhidrosis treatments

Over the years, hyperhydrosis treatment has included everything from oral medications, natural remedies, surgery, inactivity and now, cosmetic injectables. Below we detail a few of these hyperhidrosis remedies, including surgical cures for hyperhydrosis, medications and natural hyperhidrosis treatments. Of course, this list is not definitive, and we encourage you to talk to a doctor about treating suspected hyperhidrosis.

Surgery as a cure for hyperhidrosis

Surgery, called endoscopic thoracic sympathicotomy, is often used to treat hyperhidrosis. As this excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is believed to be due to over activity of the sympathetic nervous system, nerves located in the chest cavity are clipped, resected or severed to stop excessive sweating. As with any surgery, there is the chance of contra-indications with this keyhole procedure, including bleeding, infection, nerve damage, rib pain and dryness of the hands, face and neck. Some patients who have this treatment for excessive perspiration also experience a decreased heart rate. The most common contra-indication of this surgery is compensatory sweating or secondary hyperhidrosis. This is excessive sweating in the lower chest, back, abdomen, thighs and legs that may also be accompanied by sensitivities to heat or cold. Sadly, a majority of patients undergoing this surgery will experience some degree of compensatory sweating.

Other excessive sweating ‘cures

Normal over the counter anti-perspirants are not effective against hyperhidrosis. Prescription-only medications are available as a treatment for excessive sweating. These medications contain up to 20% Aluminum Chloride in anhydrous ethyl alcohol and they can be effective in treating palmar, pedal and axillary hyperhydrosis if applied and left on overnight. However, the chemicals in this treatment may cause severe skin irritation, particularly in the axillary region, and become less effective against hyperhidrosis over time.

Iontophoresis is sometimes used to treat hyperhidrosis. This works by causing electrical changes in the sweat glands to disrupt or stop sweating. Iontophoresis involves placing the affected areas in water. A small electric current is then passed through the skin via the water. Its main drawback is the time required to do the treatments, it only works on mild forms of hyperhidrosis, and it must be done indefinitely.

Oral medications have had limited success in controlling excessive sweating and must be taken in high doses to treat excessive sweating effectively. Unfortunately at high doses these medications have severe contra-indications such as excessive dryness of the mouth, constipation, urinary retention, blurry vision and sometimes even memory impairment and reflex tachycardia.

Natural remedies for excessive sweating include biofeedback, acupuncture and hypnosis. Unfortunately these natural methods used to treat hyperhydrosis have limited success as excessive sweating remedies.
