Health Tip: If You Sweat Excessively

July 2, 2010

(HealthDay News) — Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests these possible treatment options:

  • Prescription or over-the-counter antiperspirants.
  • Immersing hands and feet into cool water and adding a special medical device that delivers very low-voltage electrical current (iontophoresis).
  • Injection of diluted botulinum toxin type A at appropriate spots on the body.
  • Oral medication to help suppress overactive sweat glands.
  • A surgical treatment that interrupts the nervous system’s interaction with the sweat glands (sympathectomy).

You have to eat healthy, exercise, and regularly watch your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and then things should be not too hard. We have lots of info on all that on our site, everyone interested is welcome to take a look.
