For most people, managing sweat means putting on antiperspirant in the morning. For others, excessive sweating causes stress and embarrassment. At Levy Dermatology, we recognize the effect that hyperhidrosis can have on your life. We will work with you to develop a treatment plan that decreases your sweating and makes you feel more confident.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
If you sweat even when you do not feel warm and find yourself hiding wet underarms, you may have hyperhidrosis. Sweat glands release sweat when they get a signal from a nerve. In people with hyperhidrosis, the nerves signaling the sweat glands become overactive and tell the glands to release sweat even when not needed.
