I Believe I Have Hyperhidrosis. I Sweat So Much In My Underarms For No Reason.

What Are The Best Treatments For Hyperhydrosis?

What Are The Best Treatments For Hyperhydrosis?

I tried Iontopheresis (for my hands and feet) and whilst this worked it didn’t completly stop the sweating so my dermatologist recommended botox. I could only have it in my hands and it only worked for 2 months. I have also tried medication but it made my mouth so dry i had to stop. What other treatments are available? And what treatments have people found to be the most effective?

Glycopyrrolate Work for me. Yes it makes your mouth dry but it is worth it to me not to be sweating from my head all the time .

How Can I Find A Doctor To Help Me With This?

How Can I Find A Doctor To Help Me With This?

My doctor just keeps telling me the sweats are from menopause. But I swear EVERY single day. Nevermind all night too. I am getting so frustrated cuz I can't even go out. I can't do anything without people asking if I am ok. Even my leg and ankles are swelling so badly now I can hardly walk which makes my sweats even worse cuz walking takes so much more effort. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!
