Excessive sweating / hyperhidrosis
Hyperhidrosis is excessive and often uncomfortable sweating. It can be localized to specific areas (commonly armpits, palms or soles) or generalized. Most cases of hyperhidrosis are unexplained, usually starting in childhood or adolescence and may significantly impact a patient’s quality of life
Once underlying health conditions are ruled out, Dr. Ophelia will prescribe the treatment options available. These include antiperspirants, topical creams, tablets and iontophoresis. Botox injections into the affected area are effective in controlling sweating, with the effects lasting for 3-4 months.
