Hyperhidrosis causes a person to sweat excessively. Obviously, It can be a very embarrassing situation. Hyperhidrosis usually causes sweating on the palms and the underarms and can significantly affect a person’s self-image.
Hyperhidrosis is usually caused by overactive sweat glands. But it can also be a symptom of many diseases including hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, and Parkinson’s disease. This type of hyperhidrosis is known as secondary hyperhidrosis.
At Matsuda Dermatology, we offer many treatments options for hyperhidrosis. Antiperspirants can be effective, but if they don’t work other treatment options are Botox, medications, and, in some cases, even surgery. We only recommend surgery as a last resort, if all other options have failed.
Hyperhidrosis can be embarrassing to live with. Let us at Matsuda Dermatology help you resolve your hyperhidrosis and get on with your life.
