Excessive Sweating – Hyperhidrosis
Excessive sweating can be an uncomfortable, embarrassing condition, affecting both men and women and is most commonly apparent the armpits, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Most often the condition develops in adolescence, and can be symptomatic of an underlying issue, like anxiety, overactive sweat glands, overactive thyroid glands or polycystic ovaries, or in many cases, is idiopathic (without cause).
The medical term for excessive sweating is Hyperhidrosis. The most visual symptoms of Hyperhidrosis are usually found in the armpit: the over-production of sweat presenting itself as damp patches under the arms.
This can be a very embarrassing condition, with sufferers often limiting their social activity or dressing to suit the condition. At home, remedies can be sought by way of management of diet,
particularly through decreasing caffeine intake as this can be a stimulant, or through the use of medical strength antiperspirants. Where at home remedies fail, Time Clinic can assess the severity of your condition, and are able to successfully treat the affected area by the use of muscle relaxing injections like Botulinum Toxin.
