Excessive sweating can impact your physical and emotional health. Dr. B can help you stay cool and dry with effective hyperhidrosis treatments.*Prescription treatment requires a virtual medical consultation with a medical provider to determine if a prescription is appropriate.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. It affects 1-5% of the population. Symptoms, which are not always related to high temperatures or physical exercise, can result in sweat-soaked clothing. While not a serious health threat, the disorder can cause social anxiety or public embarrassment.
Primary hyperhidrosis is typically caused by overactive nerve signals, which lead the sweat glands to produce too much sweat. There is no medical cause for this condition, which is often inherited.
Secondary hyperhidrosis can be a side effect of another condition, especially if you are taking medication to treat symptoms of diabetes, thyroid issues, nervous system disorders or infections. Secondary hyperhidrosis can also occur during menopause.
Heavy sweating of the underarms, face, feet, palms and other areas of the body. The sweating can be so intense that it disrupts daily life, sleep and social situations.
Dr. B offers medicated wipes and topical solutions that can be applied directly to the skin. These treatments are either Aluminum Chloride-based or Glycopyrronium-based. Aluminum Chloride blocks sweat glands with the help of aluminum ions, while Glycopyrronium-based treatments block specific neurotransmitters to stem the flow of sweat production.
The medicated wipes and topical solutions can be applied directly to the affected area.
Common side effects can include: redness, burning, tingling, mild itching and irritation. These symptoms are typically mild and may diminish over time. Talk to your provider if these symptoms continue or worsen over time.
