Excessive Sweating (hyperhidrosis) treatment

Summary

Excessive Sweating (hyperhidrosis) treatment

Drugs, such as Atropine and Robinul , presented risky and uncomfortable side effects, such as dry mouth, urinary problems and even increased risk of heat stroke. Today, treatment options have improved and some people find a combination of treatments control their symptoms to an acceptable level. Aluminium Chloride antiperspirants can help many people. Lontophoresis for hands, feet and underarms has been used for many decades by the NHS. Botox injections have also helped many sufferers. In addition, there are surgical options, but these should only be resorted to as a last resort. Retrodemal Curettage or Laser Sweat Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure, while Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) is major surgery with a very high possibility of irreversible damage occurring.
