Top 10 Treatment Methods For Your Hyperhidrosis Treatment

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition also known as excessive sweating. This common disorder causes unhappiness and embarrassment. Primary hyperhidrosis occurs in otherwise healthy individuals. Secondary hyperhidrosis is not as common as primary hyperhidrosis and can be caused by certain drugs, facial surgery, neurological disorders, and anxiety.

There are many treatment methods for different cases of hyperhidrosis. Drysol, drionics or oral medications are a few of the treatment methods.

If you are suffering from excessive sweating, please continue reading this short hyperhidrosis treatment overview.

1. Tanning Agents (Glutaraldehyde)

This is a viable treatment for people who have excessive sweating in their feet. It is readily available in a chemical company and it works well. But there are side effects of using this chemical. It is applied to the bottom of the feet and it should be done 2-4 days a week. It should be noted that this product turns your feet very brown.

2. Psychotherapy

If hyperhidrosis is affecting you emotionally, psychotherapy is the way to go. Psychotherapy can help to deal with excessive blushing or sweating and it can reduce it in some cases. The stimuli that cause attacks in an individual can be identified by this method which helps to deal with hyperhidrosis.

3. Iontophoresis

This method of treatment has been improved and it is now more effective. Hands and feet of patients are placed in this machine to get rid of hyperhidrosis. These parts of the body are placed into a pan inside the machine, electrode pads are applied and a 20ma current is used for treatment. This method of treatment is not painful and the side effects are not as much as other methods that have been mentioned. You should ensure the use of iontophoresis machine for your treatment regularly.

4.  Propantheline Bromide (Pro-Banthine)

This drug is used to treat high blood pressure but it can be effective for patients suffering from hyperhidrosis.

5. Biofeedback

This treatment is effective for reducing hyperhidrosis. There is no known significant success rate of this treatment since there has been little research done on this method. But you can try it.

6. Drysol

This medication is the first treatment that is administered to patients by the physician. It is used to treat hyperhidrosis of the feet, hands, and armpits. The medication is applied to the skin and will be left in the specified area for about 8 hours. You should not shave the treated area immediately after applying the medication; you need to wait for 24-48 hours. Drysol should be applied at night and removed in the morning. It is imperative to follow the instructions when using this medication to prevent skin irritation which occurs sometimes. Drysol is recommended for people with mild to moderate case of hyperhidrosis because it is effective for treating such cases.

7. Glycopyrrolate (Robinul)

This medication helps to dry the whole body and it commonly works with patients who have severe emotional triggers connected to their sweating. Patients who are suffering from hyperhidrosis can use this method before doing something such as going for a job interview or giving a presentation. Dry mouth is a common side effect of this treatment method and should not be used in hot environments.

8. Propranolol (Inderal)

A patient who suffers from hyperhidrosis that is usually caused by stress should use this method of treatment. Inderal should be taken during taking part in any strenuous activity to help reduce excessive sweating or blushing. Balancing out emotional and mechanical tremor in the body helps this method to work well. It doesn’t have any known side effects.

9. Antidepressants and Anti-anxiety Medication

These medications might help for the treatment of hyperhidrosis but the side effects should be taken into consideration because not everyone can use antidepressants. Antidepressants help to deal with the consequences of hyperhidrosis instead of eliminating it completely. And they should be taken if administered by a qualified physician.

10. ETS Surgery

This is used for only certain cases of palmar hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the palms) that have not responded to other treatment options or to combinations of treatments.
