Hyperhidrosis is an excessive sweating disorder that may affect both sides of your body in certain areas, such as your hands, armpits, chest, face, feet and groin.

In some cases, it may affect the entire body, and it can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, although it does not indicate a serious threat to your health. However, excessive sweating can interfere with your daily life, and neglecting stress related to hyperhidrosis may lead to anxiety or depression.

What are the most common symptoms of hyperhidrosis?

  • Excessive sweating without activities such as dancing, exercising or walking
  • Feeling self-conscious about sweaty palms and feet
  • Difficulty to hold different tools due to sweating of palms
  • Noticeable sweating and staining of your clothing

 What causes hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis can affect anyone and develop at any age. Although excessive sweating may be caused by different factors such as disease, there is no obvious origin. Most commonly, hyperhidrosis may be triggered by problems with the nervous system.

Other common causes may include anxiety, pregnancy, menopause, over-active thyroid gland, low blood sugar, some medications and infections.

How can it be treated?

Excessive sweating is a common issue, but it may feel embarrassing to seek for professional health. Some individuals find relief in changing their lifestyle or using stronger antiperspirants. At Purlys Dental Practice, we can offer you muscle relaxant injections to treat hyperhidrosis.

How do muscle relaxant injections treat hyperhidrosis?

People with hyperhidrosis suffer from over-active nerves that signal to the sweat glands. As a result, this produces excessive sweating. Muscle relaxant injections may help by blocking these nerves from activating your sweat glands when injected into the affected area.

The treatment times may vary depending on an individual case. Most commonly, muscle relaxant injections can be completed within a single appointment. If you would like to enquire about muscle relaxant injections for hyperhidrosis treatments, we suggest that you book a consultation with our medical professional.
