Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating. It can affect any part of the body, but is most commonly found on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and underarms.
While sweating is a natural and necessary process that helps to regulate body temperature, those with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively and unpredictably. This can be both physically and emotionally debilitating, causing discomfort, social embarrassment, and difficulty with everyday activities.
If you are experiencing excessive sweating and it is impacting your daily life, it is important to consult one of our dermatologists at Mid-County Dermatology. Our dermatology team can help to determine the underlying cause of your hyperhidrosis and recommend the most appropriate treatment option.
Treatment options for hyperhidrosis may include antiperspirants, topical medications, prescription oral medications, or procedures such as botox injections or miraDry. We will work with you to determine the best course of treatment based on the severity of your condition and your individual needs and preferences.
