You have a serious problem. You struggle with excessive sweating every day. It’s not simply a matter of drenching your shirts at your armpits. You also sweat on your scalp, your hands, and your feet. You’ve tried every type of antiperspirant you can find, but nothing works. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can help you to find a solution to this frustrating problem.
Get to the Bottom of Your Excessive Sweating
Before you can treat your condition, you need to find out if you have any underlying medical condition that is making your body produce too much sweat. Hyperthyroidism, in which your thyroid gland is too active, is a serious health concern that could make you sweat. You need to take thyroid medication to restore balance when your thyroid gland isn’t doing its job. This may also be the solution for your excessive sweating. Hypoglycemia, a condition in which you have low blood sugar, could also cause your body to produce excess sweat. This could be an indicator of diabetes, another serious condition that should be addressed. If nothing else is contributing to your excessive sweating, you may simply have an issue where your sweat glands are producing too much sweat.
What Can You Do to Stop Excess Perspiration?
Treatment options will vary based on the area that is one of your problem areas for hyperhidrosis. You can try BOTOX® injections that target the areas that produce excess sweat on your body. You will need to have your injections repeated every six months to a year. Lastly, miraDry is a treatment option that uses electromagnetic energy to heat the sweat glands and disabling them.
