Learn more about excessive sweating, its causes, and treatment. What is it?

Perspiration or sweating is a temperature-regulation mechanism that allows the body to cool down. As uncomfortable and stinky it may get, it is the natural and healthy routine of the body. When it happens excessively without any reason then it is known as Hyperhidrosis. This condition is characterized by perpetual sweating, generally on the hands, feet, and underarms.

Most of you must be thinking that it’s just sweating and don’t need any treatment from the dermatologist. However, if left untreated, excessive sweating can lead to skin irritation due to the persistent dampness of the skin.

So, it is important to consult a dermatologist for Hyperhidrosis treatment.

How much sweating is too much sweating?

The normal amount of sweat is variable and depends upon the body’s demands. Based on the activities of the people, they can sweat less than a liter a day or much more. In excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis, the body gets highly overactive and produces 4 or 5 times the amount of sweat that is needed by you.

It is common to sweat when you are running or climbing a high number of stairs. However, if you are sweating while calmly sitting in your chair, that is too much sweating. It is time to see a dermatologist.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

There may be several causes behind excessive sweating such as underlying health conditions like hormonal shift and diabetes. If such conditions are behind the Hyperhidrosis then dermatologists suggest addressing the underlying cause first to reduce excessive perspiration.

In other cases where Hyperhidrosis is not caused by a more serious problem, they must be treated directly. Many of the medications can also manifest excessive sweating.

How do I know if I have Hyperhidrosis?

Everyone sweats, and some people sweat more than others. Hyperhidrosis is different because the sweating occurs even when there is no clear cause.

You might find yourself sweating in an air-conditioned room, or when you’re doing nothing more strenuous than sitting down for dinner with friends or watching television. You might be perfectly dry one moment, and then even the thought about an anxiety-triggering scenario can cause you to break out in heavy sweat.

Excessive sweating is not usually a serious medical issue, but it can certainly be disruptive and embarrassing. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help get your sweating under control.

What are some treatments for excessive sweating?

At Safe Health PC, Lansing and Mount Pleasant, we design your treatment plan keeping in mind your specific needs. Dr. Fatteh, MD has multiple approaches from which to choose, and he can discuss the pros and cons of each option with you in detail.

BotoxⓇ injections can help control sweating by preventing your body from releasing a chemical that triggers your sweat glands. Injections are administered in your underarms or even in the soles of your feet or the palms of your hands. Results can last for nearly a year, but it may take multiple injections to achieve optimal results.

This Hyperhidrosis treatment is painless and most patients do not require anesthesia. However, if desired by the patients, doctors can apply ice or anesthetic cream to the skin before the injections.

Certain medications can also help control excessive sweating. Some drugs work by preventing your sweat glands from activating, but they come with a risk of potentially serious side effects. Dr. Fatteh can help you decide if the benefits of drug therapy are worth the risks in the treatment for excessive sweating.

MiraDry is an effective technology for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis. This technology is used only for underarm sweat only and not other parts of the body. It works by applying electromagnetic energy to the armpits which result in the destruction of sweat glands, thus reducing excessive sweating in that area.

Safe Health PC is outstanding! I visited there with challenging and old acne that was not getting cured! I tried many other skin doctors in Lansing and their medications did not work at all. In fact my acne got even worse. Their treatment was very effective and my acnes start reducing. My skin is looking great again. Their prices are very reasonable for the amazing care I got!

I would definitely recommend Safe Health PC. I got my Botox treatment done from this clinic and it was perfect. Dr. Fatteh gave me all the information regarding the procedure. The procedure was a success and the results were amazing. My skin looks younger now and wrinkles are gone. I am definitely looking forward to my next sitting.
