Treatment for Hyperhidrosis

Monday, 01 February 2021 00:00

Plantar hyperhidrosis causes excessively sweaty feet. This problem can be embarrassing, and having constantly wet feet may increase your risk of developing certain foot problems, such as blisters or athlete’s foot. Fortunately, there are many treatments available for plantar hyperhidrosis. For mild to moderate cases, using an antiperspirant is recommended. Antiperspirants can come in a variety of forms to help reduce sweating by blocking the pores from which sweat escapes. Another potential treatment is iontophoresis, which can inhibit the overactive sweat glands’ ability to produce sweat. If you have excessively sweaty feet, it is suggested that you see a podiatrist, who can help you find the right treatment for you. 

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact Dr. Ira Silverman of New Jersey. Our doctor can provide the care you need to attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Hyperhidrosis of the Feet

Hyperhidrosis is a rare disorder that can cause people to have excessive sweating of their feet. This can usually occur all on its own without rigorous activity involved. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may also experience sweaty palms.

Although it is said that sweating is a healthy process meant to cool down the body temperature and to maintain a proper internal temperature, hyperhidrosis may prove to be a huge hindrance on a person’s everyday life.

Plantar hyperhidrosis is considered to be the main form of hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis can refer to sweating that occurs in areas other than the feet or hands and armpits. Often this may be a sign of it being related to another medical condition such as menopause, hyperthyroidism and even Parkinson’s disease.

In order to alleviate this condition, it is important to see your doctor so that they may prescribe the necessary medications so that you can begin to live a normal life again. If this is left untreated, it is said that it will persist throughout an individual’s life.

A last resort approach would be surgery, but it is best to speak with your doctor to find out what may be the best treatment for you.
