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.
Sweat stopping injections for underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis) can lead to a greater than 90% reduction in sweating lasting 3-4 months.
For sufferers of idiopathic axillary hyperhidrosis treatment is subsidised by Medicare when treatment is performed at Perth Dermatology Clinic. This allows for highly affordable treatment of underarm sweating with often life changing results.
