End the nuisance and embarrassment of Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which natural perspiration is considered excessive. An estimated two to three percent of Americans suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms, called axillary hyperhidrosis or the palms and soles of the feet, called palmoplantar hyperhidrosis.
Excessive sweating can be generalized or found in specific areas of the body, Regardless of the symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, they can be a huge source of embarrassment for many people. This sweating can be independent of temperature or emotional state and can be associated with odor. Excessive sweating often starts during adolescence and can sometimes be a catalyst for anxiety.
What is Hyperhidrosis
According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, excessive sweating is divided into two categories, Primary Focal and Secondary Generalized. The difference is important as Primary Focal hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating that is not caused by another medical condition or due to side effects of some medications. This type of hyperhidrosis is a medical condition. People with hyperhidrosis may experience excessive seating on more than one area of their body.
“I’ve dealt with sweat overload in my armpits my whole life, to the point where I could only wear black shirts. Going into this procedure I had no idea what to expect. Dr. Prasad walked me step by step in what was going to happen. The procedure was literally almost pain free and now I am sweat free from my armpit area. Thank you so much Dr. Prasad and the rest of your staff for making everything go smooth!!!”
Secondary Generalized hyperhidrosis is caused by another medical condition or due to the side effect of a medication. Another distinction is that people with secondary hyperhidrosis often exhibit excessive sweating while sleeping.
Symptoms and concerns of people with hyperhidrosis include:
- Excessive sweat on both sides of the body.
- Episodes of excessive sweating occurs at least one episode a week.
- Episodes of excessive sweating started earlier than age 25.
- Positive family history.
- Excessive sweating impacts activities.
