Excessive Sweating? It Could Be Hyperhidrosis

Sweating is your body’s natural cooling system. However, excessive moisture caused by hyperhidrosis can be difficult to control, leading to embarrassing stains, self-consciousness, and affecting your quality of life. While there are some topical, over-the-counter treatments like antiperspirant sticks and creams, many patients find these treatments less than effective in the long run. If you’ve tried other options for managing your hyperhidrosis symptoms with little success, SkinSmart Dermatology may have your solution.

What Causes Excessive Sweating?

Excess sweating caused by hyperhidrosis is a symptom of hyperactive sweat glands. When your body encounters common causes for sweating like high temperatures, physical exertion, or stress, the body sends your sweat glands into overdrive. However, for patients with hyperhidrosis, the trigger may not be immediately apparent. Sweating may then be exacerbated by anxiety, leading to worsening symptoms.

While the precise causes of excessive sweating may be difficult to identify, research has shown some correlations with existing medical conditions. These include:

  • hyperthyroidism
  • diabetes
  • hypoglycemia
  • menopause
  • certain cancers, like leukemia, lymphoma, or liver and bone cancers

Certain medications have also been shown to increase sweat production, but these symptoms typically alleviate themselves once the medication is adjusted or use is discontinued.

What Can You Do About Hyperhidrosis?

If you’re dealing with hyperhidrosis, trying to find an effective solution can be frustrating. Avoiding certain types of clothing like long-sleeve tops or form-fitting garments and diligently applying and reapplying deodorants and antiperspirants can provide temporary relief, but concerns about visible sweat never quite leave your mind. Managing your symptoms takes too much time and mental energy, interfering with participation in your favorite activities or social engagements. No one should have to sit out on the fun in fear of excessive sweating.

With both topical and injectable treatment options, Dr. Elizabeth Callahan and our team of knowledgeable dermatology professionals will help you find a solution that finally works. All of our hyperhidrosis treatments have been thoroughly researched and clinically proven to address even moderate to severe symptoms.

Prescription Strength Topical Treatments

While some over-the-counter products boast claims of ‘clinical strength’, the reality is most effective topical treatments for hyperhidrosis require a prescription. After a consultation a highly qualified dermatology professional on our team, we can provide the right prescription medication to curb your sweat concerns. These topical treatments work by interacting with the sweat glands directly, helping to calm their over-reactivity and reduce sweat production.
