Learn More about Hyperhidrosis

 

Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can affect patients socially and physically.  The treatment of hyperhidrosis is initially conservative, with the application of deodorants or antiperspirants such as Certain Dri, which are marketed towards excessive sweating.  Resistant hyperhidrosis can be treated with prescription topicals such as Drysol and Xerac AC.  These latter solutions block sweat glands and can control most cases of hyperhidrosis. 


If you have hyperhidrosis, you may also be a candidate for Botox injections, which block the release of acetycholine on the eccrine sweat glands.  Botox works well for axillary, plantar, and palmar hyperhidrosis. Schedule a consultation to discuss your options for hyperhidrosis treatment with Dr. Karamanoukian.
