If you are living with hyperhidrosis, you know how it can get in the way of living your life to the fullest. Excessive sweating doesn’t sound like a big deal. People don’t understand what it means. Hyperhidrosis typically affects the armpits. However, it can also target the scalp, the palms of the hands, and the feet. Over-the-counter products don’t usually work for hyperhidrosis. You need to find a solution that will help you to manage your condition. Following are some of the treatment options you may want to consider.
Prescription-Strength Antiperspirant Can Get Your Armpits Under Control
If you are only dealing with excessive sweating under your arms, or if this is the area that is your biggest problem, we may begin with a prescription for antiperspirant. It is more effective than anything that you can purchase on your own. Use as directed for the best results.
Prescription Medication Can Address Any Excessive Sweating that Could be Bothering You
If you are not dealing with excessive sweating that affects more than your underarms, you may be able to benefit from a prescription medication. This type of prescription deactivates the overactive sweat glands to bring you relief. However, you may experience negative side effects while you are on this medication.
Consider Botox Injections
Someone may recommend anti-wrinkle injections that can target your sweat glands in your armpits, your feet, and your palms. This treatment can deactivate your sweat glands for up to a year. Our team will be able to determine where injections will benefit you most.
A Combination of Treatments May be Best
