Hyperhidrosis is the scientific term for abnormally excessive sweating that’s not necessarily related to being overheated or exercising. If you experience this condition, you may sweat so much, typically from your underarms or palms, that it soaks through your clothes or drips off your hands or arms. Hyperhidrosis can be a highly disruptive skin condition that may also have a negative effect on your well-being and self-confidence.
Your Provider will begin by closely examining the areas of your body that sweat excessively and asking you questions that will help them better understand your specific situation. They may also recommend further testing as necessary.
A common first step in treating hyperhidrosis is to try prescription-strength antiperspirants. If these don’t help, your Provider may suggest different medications or therapies. And, if an underlying cause of the excessive sweating is uncovered, treatment may focus on both the symptoms and the root issue.
