Hyperhidrosis – A silent handicap

Hyperhidrosis is both a social and physical problem, but at specialized sweat receptions there is assistance. Hyperhidrosis affects men of all ages. Problems with excessive sweating often cause a social disability that can affect self-esteem and govern vital life choices, such as career choice or choice of partner.

Many hyperhidrosis patients are ashamed of their symptoms and suffer completely unnecessarily

In the United States, about one percent suffer from hyperhidrosis. It is hereditary; therefore, those with problems with abundant sweating in the family should be particularly attentive. For men with hyperhidrosis, the inconvenience may increase when hormone levels change in connection with puberty and the “male menopause” at the age of 70. I spoke to a doctor specialized in this field.

“Many hyperhidroïdic patients are ashamed of their symptoms and are completely unnecessary. No one will have to stand out or limit his life due to hyperhidrosis. The complaints can be treated relatively easily on a specialized sweat reception. In Sweden, there are currently two such receptions, “said Karl Martin, chief physician.

A silent handicap that can be treated effectively
People with general hyperhidrosis sweat from large body surfaces, such as head, chest and back. Exercise and heat are generally factors that hyperhidrosis patients are having difficulty because it increases sweating. Even easier effort, such as a short walk or cleaning, can cause a person with hyperhidrosis to sweat excessively. Those who sweat when others usually do not sweat feel uncomfortable.

After the first reading, 90 percent are satisfied

The most effective form of treatment is botulinum toxin, a relatively new form of treatment that alleviates sweating between three and twelve months for ninety percent of patients.

– Botulinum toxin causes few, local and transient side effects. After first reading, 90 percent are satisfied, sweating normally or not at all over the treated area. Patients are excitedly happy and will happily return a couple of times a year until the disability hopefully goes over.

Find qualified care at a specialist reception
Hyperhidrosis often constitute a major social disability, many who have suffered are planning their entire existence based on the disease. Patients often spend a lot of time and care on planning how to conceal the problems and handle their sweating when in social situations.

The knowledge of hyperhidrosis is unfortunately too low
“The knowledge of hyperhidrosis is unfortunately too low among doctors around the country. This makes patients who take courage and dare to seek medical attention many times denied treatment or diagnosed as overweight or mentally ill, even though the problem is not due to obesity or mental illness. My advice to patients who do not get the right help is to contact a specialized Sweat Reception.
