It may be necessary to perform the test known as the sweat test to some patients. Other medical tests may be needed to find the medical problem causing sweating.

How is excessive sweating treated?

The type of treatment varies depending on the type of hyperhidrosis and in which part of the body the excessive sweating occurs. In addition, the patient's general health and other factors are also taken into account.

First of all, it is treated with methods such as oral systemic drugs, externally applied creams, sprays and lotions, botox injections or iontophoresis. In cases where the desired results cannot be achieved, surgical techniques, surgical removal of sweat glands or endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy can be applied in hand and armpit sweating. This surgical operation, which has a permanent effect, is irreversible. In addition, good results can be obtained with radiofrequency application with gold needles under the armpit without surgery recently.
