Hyperhidrosis is abnormally excessive sweating occurring irrespective of different external provocative factors such as environmental, etc. Except that it is worrying and unpleasant, the hyperhidrosis causes active reproduction of pathogenic bacteria. People with hyperhidrosis more often complain about warts, mycotic lesions and different bacterial infections. We can mention local hyperhidrosis or general hyperhidrosis.
Most often local hyperhidrosis is as excessive sweating on palms, thick skinfolds on feet or under armpits accompanied by unpleasant smell and appearance of sweat-eating fungi. May occur symptoms typical for nervous system disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, worrying, emotional instability. Due to the stress the facial hyperhidrosis may be accompanied by reddish skin.
Stages of Hyperhidrosis
Basing on the pronounced symptoms we can mention three stages of hyperhidrosis:
- Stage 1 – excessive sweating troubling neither the person not the people around.
- Stage 2 – unpleasant situations in everyday life (unpleasantly wet handshake, excessive sweating in public places).
- Stage 3 – negative emotional experience due to the sweat smell, wet clothes, condemnation of surrounding people and their unwillingness to contact the person with hyperhidrosis.
According to the localization the hyperhidrosis can be:
- Feet hyperhidrosis;
- Armpit hyperhydrosis;
- Palm hyperhidrosis;
- Facial hyperhidrosis.
According to the reasons of occurance we can separate primary and secondary hyperhidrosis. The primary hyperhidrosis is a separate problem occurring due to autonomic nervous system disorders. Occurs on palms and foot soles at the same time, rarely isolated armpit hyperhidrosis can occur. It is more typical for women. The secondary hyperhidrosis can be caused by nervous, endocrine, swelling and infection underlying conditions.
In case of the secondary hyperhidrosis the main causing diseases should be found and treated and the patient’s nervous system balance should be restored. The most popular and effective method of hyperhidrosis treatment is intradermal injections in the areas of typical excessive sweating.
At The Euromedica Clinic the excessive sweating is treated using Botox or Disport injections. The Disport preparation is injected with thin needles on the definite depth in the excessively sweating areas that are subject to treat. The procedure is painless and takes about five minutes. During the first three days the medicine begins to effect blocking the hyperhidrosis for a period from half year to year.
