Is There a Cure for Hyperhidrosis?
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been looking for a solution to your excessive sweating for quite some time. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately, there is currently no cure for hyperhidrosis. However, while no miracle cure exists, highly effective treatment does! Read on to learn more about hyperhidrosis and the best method to treat it.
What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a common medical condition characterized by excessive sweating that affects nearly 5% of the global population, or approximately 365 million people worldwide. Those who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat approximately 4-5 times more than average! There are two types of hyperhidrosis: primary and secondary, and the areas most affected by the condition are the hands, feet, and underarms, also known as palmar, plantar, and axillary hyperhidrosis.
Do I have hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is normal, but excessive sweating can have a serious impact on quality of life. There are varying levels of hyperhidrosis (mild to severe), but all can have a negative impact on an individual’s psychological, occupational, and social life. If you regularly find yourself worrying about sweating, whether that’s underarm sweat stains, clammy hands, and/or sweaty feet, then you most likely suffer from hyperhidrosis.
How can you treat hyperhidrosis?
There are many ways to treat hyperhidrosis, many of which you have probably tried and experimented with before. From over-the-counter (OTC) antiperspirant sticks, creams, wipes, and roll-ons to the more heavy-duty prescription ones, there is no shortage of antiperspirants on the market. However, these only offer temporary relief at best and are only suitable for mild excessive sweating cases and are no match for moderate-to-severe cases.
Other types of treatment available include injections, prescription medications, and risky surgery (ETS), all of which have serious potential side effects. In the case of surgery particularly, these potential risks (such as, but not limited to compensatory sweating) often outweigh the potential benefit.
What is the best way to treat hyperhidrosis?
For those looking for a non-invasive, drug-free, and needle-free treatment option, then look no further: iontophoresis is what you have been looking for! Iontophoresis works by directing a small current through the skin, effectively neutralizing the connection between the nerves and the sweat glands. In nearly all cases, this effectively treats excessive sweating!
It is the solution for those looking for an effective treatment option that can provide long-lasting dryness. Best of all, it works using tap water, so it is convenient for those looking for an all-natural treatment option that utilizes no harsh chemicals.
