Prevention of excessive sweating

More than 5% of the population suffers from the embarrassing problem of excessive sweating.
Excessive sweating can significantly affect quality of life and cause great discomfort, embarrassment, low self-confidence. It is a disruptive factor in making social connections and finding or holding a job.

Excessive sweating can be divided into two main categories:

Generalized excessive sweating (secondary generalized hyperhidrosis)

This type of sweating appears in wide areas of the body, usually as a symptom of some other illness.

Sweating increases during physical activities and exposure to high temperatures, but sometimes it happens without any obvious reason.

A frequent cause of excessive sweating is obesity or hormonal imbalance, caused by pregnancy, menopause, malfunctioning of the thyroid gland, etc...

There are other, less frequent situations that are characterized by excessive sweating, including malignant diseases such as lymphoma - especially at night time. Certain medicines can also cause excessive sweating as a side effect.

Local excessive sweating (primary focal hyperhidrosis)

Focal excessive sweating usually appears in one or more specific areas of the body, such as: underarms, palms, soles, the face and very seldom in the groin and buttocks.

Focal hyperhidrosis is not necessarily related to exertion or high temperature, but may aggravate under stress.

In many cases hyperhidrosis is hereditary.

underarms - Axillary Hyperhidrosis

Axillary hyperhidrosis can cause great discomfort and significantly affect life style. Affected People avoid wearing shirts in certain colors, don't take off their upper clothing and keep their arms close to their body in order not to show the sweat stains. They also avoid social or professional functions.

Palms - Hyperhidrosis Palmar

Sweating in the palms is hereditary and usually appears in childhood. It affects both the physical and social functioning. Affected people avoid handshakes in socially and hands holding in more intimate circumstances. They wet papers when writing and have difficulties working in professions that require holding things or use of the palms, such as handicraft, playing or working as an electrician.

The face - Facial Hyperhidrosis

Facial hyperhidrosis is always visible and therefore very embarrassing. It can appear at any time and requires constant wiping. It is very disruptive, especially when the sweat gets into the eyes or when a woman needs to make up her face.

Groin Hyperhidrosis

Less frequent than in other areas but when extreme it is quite bothersome. It is usually hidden and doesn't require treatment except in very serious cases.

Feet - Hyperhidrosis Plantar

Local excessive sweating is aggravated during exertion or exposure to heat, but sometimes it suddenly appears without any apparent reason.

In some cases sweating is hereditary – there is a family history of excessive sweating.

Injection of Botulinum causes a chemical disconnection between the nerves and the sub-muscle, reducing the stimulation of the local sweat glands and the amount of excreted sweat.

Excessive sweating is treated in the clinic by a focused injection of Botulinum to the sweating areas. Local anesthesia is used. The length of time of reduced sweating is different from patient to patient and from injection to injection and lasts approximately 4-15 months.
