The excessive sweating anywhere on the body is very annoying for anyone, even social or aesthetically. There are many causes that provoke physiological and may even be an indicator of disease. At least 2 or 3% of the world’s population are suffering and over the years are finding more and better remedies to solve or at least reduce it definitely. In this paper we focus on three treatments for different degrees of hiperdrosis or excessive sweating to be guided by a health professional.
People with hyperhidrosis have very active sweat glands often while sweating becomes uncontrollable and leads to significant discomfort, both physical and emotional.
If affects the hands, feet and armpits, sweat areas, called primary or focal hyperhidrosis often no cause is found, but remedies.
Instead sweating comes from other medical conditions and can occur throughout the body or localized in one area. The cause for example: anxiety, cancer, drug and substance abuse, heart disease, hyperthyroidism, lung disease, menopause, Parkinson, and tuberculosis. Here the treatments to combat it are very different.
To know what kind of hiperdrosis one suffers, the doctor examines the eye sweating but can also perform tests such as:
Applying a solution of iodine to the sweaty area and, after drying, starch is sprinkled on the area. The starch-iodine combination for any party that is excess sweat becomes dark blue.
Special paper is placed on the affected area to absorb the sweat, and then weighed. The more weight you have, the more sweat has accumulated. Through a series of questions also assess whether this condition is a consequence of another or the classic hiperdrosis hands, feet, armpits or face. In any case if this problem is not treated there are many possibilities of generating dermis irritations or fungi. Therefore, evaluating the degree and type of problem the doctor will advise which is the most effective treatment.
Three solutions to excessive sweating
Laser technique for removing a simple, fast and safe, almost completely (75%) and final, excessive sweating of the skin.
It was performed by anesthetizing the treatment area locally and inserted superficially (minimal incision of 1.5 mm, using a crease or natural line of the armpit) laser probe cannula 1 mm optical fiber that reaches the sweat glands (causing excessive sweating) and removes heat. Besides removing excess perspiration, is obtained also dissolve superficial fat located near the skin. The laser induces collagen contraction subcutaneous tissue, so that the skin does not sag and at the same time prevents blood vessels bleed, since immediately coagulates.
Therefore both swelling and bruising is also minimal contributing to additional recovery is quick. In a maximum of 48 hours can resume daily activity.
This is an outpatient procedure and takes about half an hour. It is best to not leave a scar.
After surgery only gives a small point (the scars are invisible or barely visible) and need to carry a compressive girdle for 10 days.
No contraindications (good for people from 15 to 85 years) and does not affect the surrounding tissue area. Unlike botox lasts 6 to 8 months or operation, this technique is much less invasive and requires no repetition.
Laser lipolysis is endorsed by the FDA as a highly safe procedure and immediate results.
Iontophoresis procedure uses electricity to temporarily turn off the sweat gland and is most effective for sweating of the hands and feet that drugs or creams.
Allows for hands or feet are placed into water and then are passed a mild electrical current through it. The electricity is gradually increased until the patient feels a light tingling sensation.
The therapy lasts about 10-20 minutes and requires several sessions (6-10) and is repeated every semester.
This procedure is approved by the FDA , is very fast and does not create any problems.
In mild cases, antiperspirants: are stronger than usual deodorant and your job is plug the sweat ducts. The key here is that these products contain 10 to 15% aluminum chloride hexahydrate or a little amount for example to use only at night.
Just take care that the chemical does not damage clothing or cause irritation skin.
Initially the patient will need to use three to seven times a week, but after sweating becomes normal, the low dose once every one to three weeks.
