What is hyperhidrosis?

You are about to go on a job interview, church, or meeting someone new and you notice that your hands and underarms are sweating. Or, you’ve just completed an aerobic workout and your whole body is soaked in sweat. Our body (Sympathetic Nervous System) naturally secretes sweat to cool down the body. But, in some cases up to 1% of the population have excessive sweating where the body (Sympathetic Nervous System) over worked to cool down body. This condition is known as hyperhidrosis. of electrical stimulation of the affected areas. Treatment is repeated until sweating is under control. Product such as Drionic is recommended. The result may vary: in cases of light hyperhidrosis are happy, some may consider too time consuming and expensive.

Location of hyperhidrosis

The excessive sweating can occur suddenly or continuous in the following areas: hands (palmar hyperhidrosis), armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis), feet (plantar hyperhidrosis), face (facial hyperhidrosis) and others.

Symptoms of hyperhidrosis

Having palmar hyperhidrosis, axillary hyperhidrosis, and plantar hyperhidrosis is profound and dramatic and affects all aspects of life including work and professional related activities, the activities of daily living and normal interpersonal social interactions. Rubbing the hands with a small amount of lotion can easily trigger sweaty hands. Sweaty hands can occur by meeting someone new for the first time or nervousness, emotional distress, or even being in a stressful situation. Severe or massive palmer hyperhidrosis cases sweat is literally seen to drip down from the hands. The problem with sweaty hands can be detected since early childhood. Patients with palmer hyperhidrosis disorder are in constant awareness of their condition and they have to live with it.

Treatments of hyperhidrosis

Ointments or anti-perspirants

This is the initial treatment for moderate or light hyperhidrosis. Product such as Drysol or Rubinal is recommended. Treatment is repeated until sweating is under control. Doctors generally recommend applying it to problem areas after drying the skin completely. Wearing it only at bedtime and then washing it off in the morning with plain water reduces the chance of skin irritation.Iontohoresis

This treatment consists of electrical stimulation of the affected areas. Treatment is repeated until sweating is under control. Product such as Drionic is recommended. The result may vary: in cases of light hyperhidrosis are happy, some may consider too time consuming and expensive.Injection

Another treatment is the injection of BOTOX ® into the area of excessive sweating. People who find no relief from conventional drug treatment for the persistent problem of sweaty palms may get short-term improvement from injections of a potent bacterial toxin. Botulinum toxin type A is a powerful chemical that in its diluted prescription form BOTOX® has been used safely in treating eye muscle disorders, wrinkles and other conditions. BOTOX® is nothing more than a protein that acts on the junction of the nerve and the muscle making the muscle less active. It reduces sweating by blocking release of the chemical acetylcholine, which stimulates secretion of the sweat glands. When a small amount of BOTOX® is injected into the armpits or palms, it stops those areas from getting clammy and sweaty. BOTOX® injections, however, are only temporary and has to be repeated two to three times a year. In addition, they are painful and expensive. Some BOTOX® patients say the treatment has given them renewed self-confidence while others think the whole process is not worth the trouble. Generally, BOTOX® injections are ineffective in cases of palmer or facial hyperhidrosis.

Surgical Treatment for Hyperhidrosis

Although treatments such as oral medication, BOTOX®, drysol and dryonics are available, the only long-lasting, effective treatment is to surgically interrupt the transmission of the sympathetic nerve impulse that controls sweating. This procedure is known as endoscopic thoracoscopic sympathectomy (ETS).The procedure

ETS is best performed by a well-trained thoracic surgeon. The procedure takes place under general anesthesia administered by a board-certified or board-eligible anesthesiologist and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.The surgical technique

The operation is performed on an outpatient basis while patients are under general anesthesia. The sympathetic nerves of both sides are reached through two incisions (5 to 10 mm) below the armpit area on each side, using the ETS technique. After patients wake up from anesthesia, they are observed in a recovery room before being discharged to go home. Patients can return to work or school within several days. The procedure is extremely effective for palmar and underarm hyperhidrosis.Results

The long-term result of ETS as a treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis is excellent, curing the sweaty palms in approximately 99 percent of all cases. The same surgery can also benefit 80-90 percent of armpit sweaty cases and 70 percent of sweaty feet cases.

“I tried medicines– from Beta Blockers– to lotions– to antipsychotics, but to no avail. I was using Drysol. At the beginning, it was great. I had dry hands for two weeks in-between doses. Then slowly, the medication started to lose its affect on me. Instead of applying once every two weeks, it was once every two days. I started to look on the Internet for other alternatives and found the website for treating hyperhidrosis.”
