What Causes Hyperhidrosis?

The primary cause is unknown. Excess sweating can be triggered by anxiety and certain substances such as caffeine and nicotine

Answer these simple questions to determine the extent of your hyperhidrosis:

  • Do you need to change your clothes three or more times during the day in order to stay dry?
  • Do you need to carry powder and towels to manage your underarm sweating?
  • Have you tried to manage your sweating with antiperspirants?
  • Would you describe your underarm sweating as intolerable and frequently interfering with your daily activities?

If you answered yes to these questions, then your hyperhidrosis is considered moderate to severe. Hyperhidrosis treatment may be right for you.

What Are My Non-Surgical Hyperhidrosis Treatment Options?

Using an antiperspirant with aluminum chloride topically is the simplest way to help control hyperhidrosis. If you have tried this and failed, you might want to consider injections of botulinum toxin A, better known as BOTOX®. This procedure disables the sweat glands for approximately six months and is approved by the FDA. At this time, we only treat the underarm areas. Insurance may or may not cover the procedure.
