Excessive Sweating Treatment
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that manifests itself in the form of excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis afflicts all kinds of people, often becoming exacerbated when the sufferer realises that they are frequently sweating without any reason, i.e. due to rigorous activity, hot temperatures or extreme anxiety.
It can happen year-round and cause significant discomfort and embarrassing.
How can hyperhidrosis be treated?
There are many different treatments that address hyperhidrosis, though only a few of these are proven to work consistently. There are also surgical options available, though these incur a higher risk and greater expense.
