Excessive Sweating aka hyperhidrosis

What is Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating (perspiration). It usually affects the under arms, hands, and feet. Individuals with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively even when triggers like warm temperatures and anxiety are not present. They sweat profoundly, in cool temperatures and during periods of rest. Some people sweat so much that it shows through their clothes or drips off their hands. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, hyperhidrosis causes anxiety and even social withdrawal. However, NP Livia treats this condition easily so you may resume normal daily activities of daily life with confidence. Livia Manner, FNP-BC has been successfully treating this bothersome condition for clients from Miami, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Florida and the surrounding areas since 2009.

There are many triggers of hyperhidrosis such as anxiety, stress, medications, andropause or menopause, and other medical conditions. Even though a medical condition is being managed properly, excessive sweating may still be occurring.

How can hyperhidrosis be managed

Some types of hyperhidrosis are treatable conditions. Often, if excessive sweating is related to another condition, the sweating goes away once the underlying condition is treated. If hyperhidrosis is the result of a medication, it may go away once you stop taking the medication. If you suffer form a condition that cannot be cured or you cannot stop taking a medication that causes the hyperhidrosis itself, Botox®, can save your life.

The most effective treatment for Hyperhidrosis is Botox® injected into the sweating glands. Botox® blocks sweat glands activities, thus reducing sweating. The treatment usually lasts six months to a year. As a result, patients will require periodic injections of Botox® to maintain the effects. Botox® procedure is very popular and effective for both men and women.
