Although primary and secondary hyperhidrosis are symptomatically similar, there are some distinct differences between them. The sweating that takes place in primary hyperhidrosis is typically described as focal, meaning that it affects only one or a few areas of the body.
A possible new method of treating excessive sweating involves blasting the palms of the hands and armpits with liquid Botox at high pressure, avoiding painful injections. A small study of this experimental technique found it improved sweating from the palms and armpits, but we need larger studies to confirm it works.
We conclude that ETS is a safe, effective and aesthetically remarkable procedure for the treatment of primary hyperhidrosis with only half of the patients developing mild to moderate degree of CS. Significant predictors of CS were sympathectomy level during ETS and frequency of follow-up after ETS.
Everybody sweats. Whether it's a boiling hot day or you've just gone gangbusters at the gym, there is absolutely nothing wrong with some good old fashioned perspiration. Dogs pant, we sweat. End of story.
However, for some people, sweating isn't a case of getting a bit sticky post-workout or feeling clammy in really humid weather. It can happen daily -- and worse, excessively -- prompting the need to wear undershirts or even bring a change of clothes to work.
The objective of this paper is to provide a comprehensive review of hyperhidrosis providing information on anatomy, physiology, and current treatment methods with an emphasis on the role of botulinum neurotoxins (BoNTs). The evidence of efficacy is presented according to the guidelines of the American Academy of Neurology.
My experience was insanely negative. I am not going to write down all of the awful things that happened. I do believe this is a great treatment for people who have a sweating problem, however, the doctor's office I went to was very unprofessional yet being the highest rated in my city. Don't trust reviews!
While hyperhidrosis can be debilitating, especially socially, it is not dangerous on its own. It can, in some rare instances, be associated with a dangerous condition and should be diagnosed properly for that reason.
Waking up to a slip'n slide every morning could mean trouble.
For when "glistening" is more like "sweating buckets."
Most people look forward to the summer months when the warm weather finally hits. But if you have hyperhidrosis, you likely dread the heat, because you suffer from excessive sweating, and you sweat way too much all year ’round, no beach weather necessary.
We are Kasper Kubica and David Spratte—Duke and UNC graduates who got fed up with our sweaty hands. After a year of work with our chemist Chris Jenks (and 60+ prototypes), we produced the world's first non-greasy, no-residue antiperspirant hand and foot lotion!
