Hyperhidrosis and Hot Flush

Types of Hyperhidrosis

  • Local Hyperhidrosis

    Local Hyperhidrosis

    Excessive sweating on particular parts of body such as
    palms, foot, armpit, and face are considered as local hyperhidrosis.
    It can be caused by stress or emotions.
    Although, it is not a serious health problem, specific area such as
    underarm where apocrine gland is distributed may cause bad
    odor when it is infected, therefore proper treatment is strongly advised.

  • General Hyperhidrosis

    General Hyperhidrosis

    Secondary hyperhidrosis is when the patient sweats
    all over the body.
    It is usually caused by body type, medication,
    or diseases such as Basedow’s disease, diabetes,
    Hyperpituitarism, nervous disease,
    and hormone imbalance.

    Taking oral drug or applying local ointment could be another approach to treat hyperhidrosis. You may find quicker
    result but usually the effect is temporary with the possibility of side effect, so it is recommended to be used on only
    special cases.

    Method 3
    Sympathectomy

    hyperhidrosis on the other body parts.
