Hyperhidrosis, also known as polyhidrosis, is a condition that leads to excessive sweating. It is normal to sweat in high temperatures, anxiety, and stressful situations, but when it happens in excess, enough to muddle with your daily activities, that’s when you know that it’s a problem that needs an expert’s advice.
Hyperhidrosis is the condition where people sweat too much without any external or stress factor. It is considered a medical complication and requires a treatment to be contained. In Hyperhidrosis, hands, feet, armpits, groin, and the facial area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the high number of active sweat glands in these areas. Even the most basic emotions like excitement and nervousness can lead to uncontrollable sweating in Hyperhidrosis. Other factors such as foods, drinks, and caffeine can also play a role. It can majorly impact the life of the people affected by it. Excessive sweating leads to major embarrassment and loss of self confidence.
Excessive sweating hinders one’s social life massively. It can be characterised in two parts: primary (focal) hyperhidrosis and secondary (generalised) hyperhidrosis. Focal hyperhidrosis takes place in the hands, underarms, face, and feet, whereas in generalised hyperhidrosis sweating happens in all parts of the body.

What is the treatment?
Topical anti- persistent, formalin solution injection of botulinum toxin is advised depending on the severity, location of hyperhidrosis. Firstly the starch iodine test is performed to know the area of the treatment or to locate the hyperactive area. The hyperactive areas are then injected with botulinum toxin injections. The patients may need several injections for effective results.
The treatment is minimally painful, and may require 20-30 injections in each area. Botulinum toxin injection might have minor side-effects such as redness and swelling but nothing big to worry about. The treatment is really effective and the results last for 6-9 months, or more depending on the condition. The post-treatment reviews are great with most patients noticing instant, and significant lifestyle improvements.
