Why have Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating) is a common problem affecting the armpits, hands and feet, and a major cause if distress and anxiety. It’s often known as ‘the silent handicap’ and many people live with it not knowing their treatment options.
Humans have up to 4 million sweat glands distributed over the body. Eccrine glands secrete an odorless, clear fluid that serves to aid in the regulation of body temperature by allowing heat loss by evaporation. These glands are in higher density on the soles of the feet. Apocrine sweat glands are located in the axilla and genital regions—and produce a thick, odorless fluid that undergoes bacterial decomposition, leading to substances with strong odors, often known as ‘B.O’
