Hyperhidrosis can be easily treated these days and you no longer have to just live with it. Discover in this article how you can treat your hyperhidrosis today.

What Kind Of Hyperhidrosis Do You Have?

It is worth classifying your hyperhidrosis before looking at the treatments if you haven't done already. This is because some treatments only work for specific types of hyperhidrosis.

You will probably have one or a combination of the following types: axillary (underarm), plantar (feet), palmar (hands), cranio-facial or truncar (chest and back).

Strong Medical Grade Roll-ons

Forget about the over the counter products that don't work. Your doctor can prescribe you a medical grade antiperspirant that actually works on any part of the body and not just the underarms.

The idea is that for the first week you apply this every other day before going to bed and wash it off in the morning. The following weeks, you only need to do this once a week.

A lot of people say that it works very well, however there can be a burning sensation.

Also, s if you do not like high levels of aluminium chloride then you could try a natural alternative such as rock crystal or aloe vera.

Botulinum Toxin

The most popular brand of this is called “Botox" which you have probably heard of. This has long been used for medical reasons way before middle aged women were interested in using it to suppress their wrinkles.

It is really only used for the underarm and 12 injections in each site will suppress sweat for maybe 3 to 6 months.

Very rarely, you may also be able top get it for the hands (palmar hyperhidrosis).


This must be considered an absolute last resort. It is usually only recommended for people with more than one type of hyperhidrosis. What will happen is that specific nerves are cut so that the messages to turn on sweating cannot be delivered to the glands.

However, there are many anti-surgery movements who say that people need to be educated about the severe side effects.

Compensatory Sweating

With most of the above treatments, cutting of sweating in one area can lead to more sweating in another area as the body compensates for this.

Discover the secret treatment for hyperhidrosis where your body goes back to normal and does not compensate with more sweat in other areas. Find out today at
