Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a common problem, affecting at least 1-3% of the population. Excessive sweating can happen without a known cause (primary hyperhidrosis). This type of sweating often starts around childhood, or during early teenage years. Commonly, excessive sweating affects places where sweat glands are most concentrated such as the palms, soles and armpits (localised hyperhidrosis). In some individuals, the problem can be more widespread (generalised hyperhidrosis). Dr Nicole is fully aware of the potential impact that hyperhidrosis can cause to an individual’s quality of life. The problem areas will be identified at consultation, and a range of treatment options will be discussed. Dr Nicole performs anti-wrinkle injections for excessive sweating in the armpits and face. Oral treatments licensed for excessive sweating can be prescribed for people with widepsread excessive sweating.
