Hyperhidrosis Questions

About Hyperhidrosis

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. It affects 1-5% of the population. The symptoms aren’t always related to high temperatures or physical exercise and can result in sweat-soaked clothing. While not a serious health threat, this medical condition can affect your quality of life, causing social anxiety or public embarrassment.

What causes hyperhidrosis?

There are two main types of hyperhidrosis.

Primary hyperhidrosis is often caused by overactive nerve signals. These instruct the sweat glands to produce too much sweat. This condition has no medical cause, and it’s often inherited.

Secondary hyperhidrosis can be a side effect of another condition. It sometimes happens with medications that treat diabetes, thyroid issues, nervous system disorders or an infection. It can also occur during menopause.

What are the symptoms of hyperhidrosis?

The primary symptom is heavy sweating of the underarms, face, feet, palms and other areas. The sweating can be so intense that it disrupts daily life, sleep and social situations.

How long does hyperhidrosis last?

Hyperhidrosis is typically a chronic (long-term) condition. But treatments and lifestyle changes can help control symptoms. Providers often reserve permanent treatments for severe cases that don’t respond to less invasive hyperhidrosis medicines.

Treatments include hyperhidrosis pills, antiperspirants, injections, prescription cloth wipes, prescription medicines or surgery. Different treatments work best in different areas of the skin. And each carries its own benefits and risks.

Do I have hyperhidrosis or…?

Conditions like tuberculosis, menopause or side effects of certain medications can also instigate excessive sweating. Talk to a medical provider to determine if your sweating is related to another underlying condition.

What are the treatments Dr. B offers for hyperhidrosis?

Dr. B offers medicated wipes and topical solutions that you apply directly to the skin. These treatments usually contain one of two medications. Aluminum Chloride treatments block sweat glands with the help of aluminum ions. Glycopyrronium-based treatments stem the flow of sweat production.

How are hyperhidrosis treatments applied?

Apply medicated wipes and topical solutions directly to the affected area.

What are common side effects?

Common side effects can include: redness, burning, tingling, mild itching and irritation. These symptoms are typically mild and may lessen or go away with time. Talk to your provider if these symptoms continue or worsen over time.

How can I get a hyperhidrosis prescription online?

Dr. B offers accessible prescription access via an online medical consultation. Complete an online health assessment covering your history and current symptoms. A licensed medical provider will review your assessment and, if appropriate, send a prescription to your pharmacy. Dr. B offers several treatment options, making it a convenient way to get treatments like Drysol or a Glycopyrronium Tosylate towelette prescription online.
