What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating. Many people believe that they sweat a lot, yet may not have hyperhidrosis. One of the key indicators is not being able to control the sweat with over-the-counter products. You may also experience times when the sweat soaks your clothing or drips from your face and hands. People with hyperhidrosis typically cannot identify a trigger to the symptoms.
What Are the Benefits of Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Living with hyperhidrosis is challenging because sweating has a social stigma. People around you may assume that you are unable to take care of your hygiene, or they may avoid you. Hyperhidrosis treatment helps you manage the problem of excessive sweating so that you can feel more at ease around people and with yourself.
How Do I Know If I Have Hyperhidrosis?
Sweating is a natural process that maintains your body temperature, so it may be difficult to determine if you have hyperhidrosis. You may have the condition if you experience excessive sweating at least one time per week, and the sweating is not linked to activities that naturally produce sweat, such as exercising. The sweating may occur on your hands, face, feet, and underarms. Hyperhidrosis symptoms most often occur when people are awake.
What Should I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Excessive sweating can be a sign of several medical conditions, so you should be evaluated by Dr. Hopkins. If she determines that you have hyperhidrosis, she will explain your treatment options. Prescription medications are effective in many cases of hyperhidrosis, including Botox® injections, and some people do require more advanced medical interventions, such as surgery.
How Much Does Hyperhidrosis Treatment Cost in Monroe, LA?
Treatment for hyperhidrosis is based upon an individualized treatment plan, so we cannot provide pricing until your appointment with Dr. Hopkins. You will have the opportunity to review pricing before proceeding with treatment.
