Excessive Sweating

Best Clinic for Excessive Sweating with Safe and Proven Treatments


Excessive sweating (medically referred to as hyperhidrosis) can be an embarrassing and frustrating condition. While any area of the body can suffer from excessive sweating, it is most commonly seen under the arms, palms, feet and face.Those who suffer from excessive sweating know how it can greatly interfere with their personal and professional lives. For those with hyperhidrosis, store-bought antiperspirant often doesn’t cut it.

Hyperhidrosis may be present from birth or might develop later in life. However, most cases of excessive sweating tend to start during a person’s teenage years.

The condition can be due to an underlying health condition, or have no apparent cause:


Primary idiopathic hyperhidrosis

“Idiopathic” means “of unknown cause.” In the majority of cases, the hyperhidrosis is localized.


Secondary hyperhidrosis

The person sweats too much because of an underlying health condition, such as obesity, gout, menopause, a tumor, mercury poisoning, diabetes mellitus, or hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland).

For some, hyperhidrosis symptoms are so severe that it becomes embarrassing, causing discomfort and anxiety. Fortunately, there are several options which can treat symptoms effectively. The biggest challenge in treating hyperhidrosis is the significant number of people who do not seek medical advice, either due to embarrassment or because they do not know that effective treatment exists.

Causes of primary hyperhidrosis

Primary hyperhidrosis appears to have a genetic component.

People used to think that primary hyperhidrosis was linked to the patient’s mental and emotional state, that the condition was psychological and only affected stressed, anxious, or nervous individuals. However, Studies have also shown that certain genes play a role in hyperhidrosis, making it look more likely that it could be inherited. The majority of patients with primary hyperhidrosis have a sibling or parent with the condition.

Causes of secondary hyperhidrosis (Includes, but not confined to)

Spinal cord injury

Alcohol & substance abuse




Heart disease

Hyperthyroidism – an overactive thyroid gland


Parkinson’s disease


Respiratory failure


Some cancers, such as Hodgkin’s disease

Some infections – HIV, malaria, TB (tuberculosis)

Some medications, including some antidepressants, anticholinesterases (for Alzheimer’s disease),

pilocarpine (for glaucoma), propranolol (for high blood pressure)


A doctor may refer the person to a skin specialist, or dermatologist.

They may recommend:


The hands and feet are submerged in a bowl of water. A painless electric current is passed through the water. Most patients need two to four 20-30 minute treatments.

Botulinum toxin

(Botox injections) – Botox injections block the nerves that trigger the sweat glands. Patients with hyperhidrosis may need several injections for effective results.

Anticholinergic drugs

These medications inhibit the transmission of parasympathetic nerve impulses. Patients generally notice an improvement in symptoms within about 2 weeks.

ETS (Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy)

This surgical intervention is only recommended in severe cases which have not responded to other treatments. The nerves that carry messages to the sweat glands are cut. ETS may be used to treat hyperhidrosis of the face, hands or armpits. ETS is not recommended for treating hyperhidrosis of the feet because of the risk of permanent sexual dysfunction.

Research suggests that more than 2% of the world populations is suffering from excessive sweating. It is caused due to hindrance in the functioning of the sweat glands which in turn results in sweating even in cold or normal temperatures.
