If you have struggled for years with hyperhidrosis, more commonly known as excessive sweating, then you know how embarrassing it can be. With the help of a medical professional, many patients with hyperhidrosis can find help in treating this problem to regain confidence.
What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It is caused by overactive sweat glands. While some patients might have hyperhidrosis that affects the feet, hands, and head, most will experience hyperhidrosis in the underarm area. Regardless of the use of anti-perspirants available over-the-counter, as well as the actual temperature of the body, sweating may still persist. Patients are often embarrassed by ruining clothes with sweat stains or appearing nervous when they really aren’t. Many patients who have hyperhidrosis are curious as to how to manage their condition.
How can hyperhidrosis be treated?
Patients struggling with excessive sweating are often seeking effective ways to manage the condition in the most conservative manner. Of course, patients will want to avoid surgical procedures if they can. This is why our team at Rendon Center Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine work directly with patients to try various conservative treatments before considering more invasive therapies. Choosing the treatment right for a patient might require some trial and error, and patience, but many individuals are excited to address the problem and be sweat-free!

- Over-the-counter clinical-strength anti-perspirants
