Hyperhidrosis is defined as excessive sweating commonly located on the palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), soles (plantar hyperhidrosis), and axilla (underarms). Thermoregulation through sweating is the body’s mechanism to cool down and regulate internal temperature. When sweating occurs in excess without an inducible cause, hyperhidrosis should be suspected. There are many medical conditions and medications that may cause hyperhidrosis. Therefore we recommend an evaluation by one of our expert providers to rule out any underlying condition.
Hyperhidrosis can affect quality of life, cause embarrassment, and interfere with social activities.
Other prescription medications include topical glycopyrronium, an anticholinergic medication, or oral glycopyrrolate. As with all medications, there are side effects that should be discussed with your provider before initiating treatment. Botulism injections are also a treatment for hyperhidrosis by reducing the production of sweat. These injections require regular treatments every 4-6 months, but patients are often very satisfied with their results.
