Now that summer is finally here in Ottawa, some people will start to become uncomfortable at the arrival of the warmer weather. For most of us, the warm weather is a welcome change, but for those people in Ottawa who are dealing with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, hot summer weather can make daily functioning a challenge.

Primary focal hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that is not caused by any other medical condition, nor is it a side effect of medications. Excessive sweating can significantly impair one’s day-to-day life. Unfortunately, there is no cure for hyperhidrosis, but medical advances have been made to help sufferers manage the symptoms. Studies have shown that hyperhidrosis can drastically negatively impact someone’s overall quality of life, and fortunately treatment options are available.

There are various options available in Ottawa for patients such as topical antiperspirants, iontophoresis, oral medications, surgery, and injectable treatments. However, many patients find topical treatments to be minimally effective, or very harsh to their skin. Iontophoresis is not usually recommended for underarm or scalp hyperhidrosis and may cause skin irritation. Surgery is usually a last resort, and most patients would prefer to avoid it, if at all possible.
