Excessive sweating is very common, likely affecting up to 3% of the population.
Excessive sweating may significantly impair your quality of life leading to you avoiding shaking peoples hands, hiding your hands in your pockets, frequently changing your socks or shirts, slipping in your shoes, staining of your clothing, anxiety, emotional distress and embarrassment and more.
Localised hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) often begins in the adolescent years and can affect the armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis), palms and soles (palmar plantar hyperhidrosis) & face and scalp (craniofacial hyperhidrosis). It is an idiopathic (of unknown cause) condition which is very common and lifelong. It often goes undiagnosed and under treated due a lack of awareness of the condition and its treatment options.
Dr Tony Caccetta and Perth Dermatology Clinic offer life-changing sweat stopping injections for axillary hyperhidrosis at affordable prices with Medicare rebates. Private Health Insurance rebates may apply for palmar plantar and craniofacial hyperhidrosis treatment.
