Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be without reason or can be a warning sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection. Excessive sweating is also more common in people who are overweight or out of shape.
there are ways to help control the symptoms. They include:
-Antiperspirants. Special over-the-counter or prescription sprays, lotions, and roll-ons can help control symptoms.
-Iontophoresis. This treatment uses low-level electrical impulses to temporarily disable the sweat glands.
-Medications. Some drugs can stop the sweat glands from kicking into action.
-Botox. Injections of Botox can temporarily stop the nerves from triggering excessive sweating. It is approved for treatment of excessive underarm sweating.
-Surgery. One approach is to cut a nerve in the chest that triggers excessive sweating. Another is to surgically remove some of the sweat glands.
Secondary hyperhidrosis(that has a medical cause) can often be treated too, although the right approach depends on the condition causing it.
Check with a dermatologist doctor he will assess your condition ,know the cause do further tests and give the appropriate treatment that works for you.
