Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Manchester

What is hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is one of the health disorders that make you feel embarrassed and discomfort by causing excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis makes either the whole body or specific parts like the face or underarms sweat excessively and abnormally. The common symptom of hyperhidrosis is excess and abnormal sweating at least once a week despite no heat, exercise, or physical activities.

Why does a person experience hyperhidrosis?

The dermatologists divide the health disorder into two categories - primary hyperhidrosis and secondary hyperhidrosis based on causes. A person experiences secondary hyperhidrosis due to specific health problems like a tumour, heart diseases, obesity, menopause, diabetes mellitus, and hyperthyroidism. But people experience localized and primary hyperhidrosis due to unknown causes. The dermatologist identifies the category and causes of hyperhidrosis by recommending a thermoregulatory sweat test.

What are the surgical treatment options for hyperhidrosis?

Dermatologists treat hyperhidrosis through a slew of surgical procedures – sweat gland removal, nerve surgery, and microwave therapy.

  • The surgeon will stop your hands from sweating excessively and abnormally by destroying the spinal nerves when you opt for nerve surgery. He will destroy the spinal nerves using a variety of techniques – cutting, clamping, and burning.
