I have had this hyperhidrosis condition since I was 7 years old. I have tried a lot of creams and mixtures but it doesn't work. It's really so embarrassing to have this sweaty palms and feet all the time and it has affected my character negatively. I am also afraid of having the surgery and knowing its negative consequences. Help me please, I am really suffering.
I completely understand your unhappiness and frustration!
There are many other options for hyperhidrosis before surgery.
We try prescription strength deodarants, oral pills, injections, and behavioral therapy. These treatments are very effective. Make an appointment with a dermatologist in your area today- you will be so happy!
I hope that as Dr. Tareen suggested you see a dermatologist to talk about options. If you get a chance, post and tell us what happened. Sometimes sharing your experience really helps others in the community.
