Hyperhidrosis Hiperhidrosis​


Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person experiences excessive and uncontrollable sweating in different areas of the body, such as the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, armpits, face or scalp, even at rest or with little physical exertion.

Hyperhidrosis can affect a person’s quality of life by causing discomfort, anxiety and limitations in daily activities. It can be caused by genetic factors or be secondary to other underlying medical conditions, such as obesity, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, menopause, among others.

Treatment Options



Antiperspirants containing aluminum salts that clog the sweat ducts are used. They can be applied to the armpits, hands, feet and other affected areas. It is recommended to use different brands and formats to prevent the body and PH from getting used to the same product and components.


Oral medications

Some oral medications can reduce excessive sweating. Anticholinergic drugs can help control sweating throughout the body.


Neuromodulator Injections

It is injected into the affected areas and temporarily blocks the nerves that control the sweat glands, which reduces the amount of sweat produced.



In severe cases of hyperhidrosis, surgery may be an option. A surgery called thoracic sympathectomy involves removing the nerves that activate the sweat glands in the armpits.
