About the disease
What are the symptoms of the condition?
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can affect the skin under the armpits, palm skin, soles or facial skin. Sometimes sweating is so strong that it is literally dripping off from the skin and wets off clothes.
Why is the condition formed?
Sweating is a normal process by which our body cools. When the body temperature rises, the nervous system stimulates the sweat glands to eliminate sweat. In case of excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, the nervous system is too active and it stimulates sweating to eliminate sweat even when there is no rise in body temperature. A stressful situation is already enough and patients begin to sweat. Primary hyperhidrosis is characterised by the fact that patients are facing excessive sweating during the performance of everyday tasks. Secondary hyperhidrosis is condition in which sweating occurs due to associated diseases and conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease, menopause, some types of cancers, and others.
How do we treat the condition?
Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride are of great help. In our clinic, the condition is eliminated by the use of a botox which inhibits the communication between the nerve endings and the sweat and thus stops sweating. By injection, botox is injected into the skin under the armpits. Botox works 3-6 months, then the therapy should be repeated.
