Excessive Sweat Production (Hyperhidrosis)Posted on November 24, 2020 in News
Hyperhidrosis is the presence of abnormally excessive sweating in the absence of heat or exercise. Excessive and disproportionate sweat production affects an estimated 3 % of the population and can lead to significant patient distress resulting in both physical and social discomfort, loss of self-confidence, reduce productivity and can lead to higher rates of anxiety and depression.
Hyperhidrosis can be broken down into primary and secondary causes, the later meaning there is another identifiable and potentially treatable cause for the excessive sweating. Primary Hyperhidrosis is the absence of secondary cause and failing conservative treatment options such as good hygiene and regular application of prescription antiperspirants then Botulinum Toxin type A is an effective treatment option.
