Treatment of Hyperhidrosis
What is Hyperhidrosis?
A condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating. There is the generalized hyperhidrosis where there is increased sweating all over the body, and the localized hyperhidrosis where there is increased sweating in a part of the body. There are two types of hyperhidrosis: one that is caused by another illness, and another that has no specific cause. The primary localized hyperhidrosis is a condition where an increased sweating is seen in the palms, bottom of the feet, or armpits.
For the treatment of armpit hyperhidrosis, prescription of Ecclock® Gel 5% or the Botox injection is possible. These are covered by insurance. As for the other primary localized hyperhidrosis (including armpits), prescription of aluminum chloride for external application is possible. This, however, is not covered by insurance. There are also other treatments covered by insurance, such as oral medication. If you have hyperhidrosis symptoms, please feel free to consult us.
