Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition whereby a person sweats excessively and this may be localised to specific areas, or affect the entire body. When sweating is this extreme it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, anxiety inducing and life inhibiting.

Hyperhidrosis can be caused by nerves which activate sweat glands, overreacting. These glands are more prevalent in the feet, palms, face and armpits so when the glands overreact, this can cause obvious excessive sweating which can disrupt all aspects of a person’s life including career choices, recreation activities, relationships, emotional wellbeing and self-image. Hyperhidrosis has, quite understandably, a significant impact on quality of life. It can restrict choice of clothing and affect relationships. Many find the problem embarrassing and may avoid certain social situations as a result.

BTX-A is a well-known treatment for managing Hyperhidrosis and the most common areas treated are armpits and palms. Although one cannot guarantee resolution of the problem, in our experience, we have had great success with this treatment. It is difficult to predict duration of benefit in any given patient.

FAQ

Please shave underarms and avoid using over the counter antiperspirants or deodorants 24 hours before.

It is advisable to avoid aspirin and non-steroidal medication, vitamin E, gingko biloba and St. John’s Wort for at least 24 hours prior to treatment as these may increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.

If you have been prescribed aspirin for a medical reason, it is best to continue this. If you have a bleeding disorder, or are taking Warfarin, discuss this with the nurse prior to receiving botulinum treatment.

Wear a dark, loose top, preferably an old one to the appointment. You may bleed a little and iodine may stain clothing.

The Doctor will first identify where the sweat glands are most active. Injections are spaced approximately 2cm apart to treat the area.  The needles are tiny, the injections are not deep and most patients report tolerable discomfort rather than pain.
