Now that summer is in full effect 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 each day a major challenge.
Primary focal hyperhidrosis is not caused by other medical conditions or side effects of medications. Many medical issues and medications can cause excessive sweating, and it is important to rule out these causes prior to pursuing treatment for primary hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating can significantly impair one’s day-to-day life. Hyperhidrosis can greatly impact work productivity and social interactions, as well as daily activities. Unfortunately, there is no cure for primary hyperhidrosis, but medical advances have been made it possible to help sufferers effectively manage their symptoms.
There are various options available in Ottawa for patients with excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. These treatment options include strong topical antiperspirants, iontophoresis, surgery, and focal treatments with injectable products. Although strong topical antiperspirants, do work for many patients, patients with more severe sweating find topical treatments to be minimally effective or harsh on their skin. Iontophoresis can occasionally work for sweating of the hands and feet, however, is not usually effective for underarm hyperhidrosis. Surgery is usually a last resort, and most would prefer to avoid it if at all possible. * NOTE: Due to Health Canada advertising restrictions we cannot provide more detailed information about the specific medications used.
