Treatment for Hyperhidrosis

Is HYPERHIDROSIS or excessive sweating making you embarrassed?

If you have tried all of the strong deodorants (even the clinical formulated ones) but you are still sweating heavily, then your anxiety levels could be heightened in public places. For people who suffer from excessive sweating (medically known as ‘Hyperhidrosis), this can be a big problem. It can influence what you wear while also affecting your confidence in social situations diminishing. If this is you, then About Face Brisbane has the solution that will enable you to stop stressing and be about to relax when in public.

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating/perspiration in excess of that required for regulation of the body’s temperature. It can be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body in regions of relatively high concentration of sweat glands.

Which body areas can excess sweeting affect?

Armpits involve constant or excessive sweating of the underarms.  This can lead some sufferers to shower throughout the day in an effort to avoid body odour and embarrassment.    Constant wet patches under the arms often result in social avoidance and the need to continually change clothing.

Hands involve constant or excessive sweating of the palms.  Wet or slippery hands are a source of discomfort and embarrassment for the sufferer, both socially and in the work environment, which can lead to avoiding simple everyday activities such as shaking hands.  It can also interfere with writing and gripping everyday items.

Feet involve constant or excessive sweating of the feet.   Sufferers find the need to change their socks often during the day and will avoid removing shoes in public for fear of foot odour. Wearing sandals and thongs can be difficult due to slippery feet.

Face sweating involves uncontrollable heat surges to the face.  It may occur when attention is drawn to the sufferer.  This can happen daily with no means of control.  Again, this can lead to lack of confidence and avoiding social events.
