AXILLARY HYPERHIDROSIS


Depending on its severity and the area affected, treatment for hyperhidrosis may require one or more approaches.

Powders, ointments, and electrical stimulation are often tried first.

The effects are temporary, however, and may last for just a few hours, sometimes up to a week.

Anticholinergic medications that block the neurotransmitter stimulating sweat production may also be prescribed, and may be particularly helpful for sweating that affects several parts of the body at once.

Botulinum toxin injection is a minimally invasive treatment to help patients with severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) inadequately managed with topical agents.

Surgical procedures for hyperhidrosis, including ETS (endoscopic transthoracic sympathectomy) are usually considered only when less invasive options fail to provide adequate relief from symptoms.

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, talk to your doctor about treatment options.
