All you need to know about Hyperhidrosis
It is an excess of uncontrolled sweating that mainly shows up on the palms of the hands, underarms, face, scalp and sometimes on the soles of the feet.
This sweating is not normal, it is an excess that excessively upsets the person who has it and can interfere with his or her daily tasks.
Most frequently, hyperhidrosis is a cause for medical advice.
The social impact of this condition is most likely to be more significant today; for example, a sweaty hand, uncontrollable sweating under the arms or on the face, can make a person look nervous, suspicious, and insecure, to the extent that it often affects work or interpersonal relationships.
The treatment for sweating is done by means of a Thoracoscopic surgery, which locates and interrupts the nerve that transmits the signals to the sweat glands in a selective way for each case.
This type of surgery is outpatient and allows the patient a quick recovery. The results of the surgery are immediate and definitive and produce an immediate cessation of sweating with an effectiveness of 98%.
