The most common area to be affected by excessive sweating is the armpits. Other areas that can be affected include the palms, soles, scalp, face and groins. In some instances excessive sweating affects the whole body.
Following a detailed consultation, our Dermatologists will be able to offer you treatments for your excessive treatments. If the condition is localised to the armpits, palms or soles then topical treatments, botulinum toxin injections and iontophoresis are useful treatments. If the condition affects the whole body, or large parts of the body then localised areas can still be treated in this way, and supplementary oral medications may also be recommended.
Localised excessive sweating responds very well to treatment. The response of generalised sweating to treatment is much more variable, and many individuals respond well to treatment for this too.
If you suffer from excessive sweating then please arrange to see one of our Dermatologists who will be happy to help.
