Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating. This condition is a common disorder that can affect one specific area or the whole body.
Symptoms can vary depending on the severity and the condition. These can include frequent sweating, clammy palms to soaking of clothing.
Treatment for hyperhidrosis is varied. A doctor will evaluate a person’s triggers for hyperhidrosis, along with possible causes. After this evaluation, the doctor will come up with a treatment plan that can lead to positive results and an improved quality of life.
These can vary from Endoscopic Thoracic Sympatectomy to Botulinum Toxin injections.
This depends on what treatment options was administered. In most extreme cases when ETS is performed, most patients leave the hospital in under 24 hours and their recovery is generally complete within two weeks.
At-home lifestyle changes, like wearing loose clothing, armpit shields, avoiding spicy foods and using clinical strength antiperspirants, can reduce symptoms.
