Sweaty Hands - Palmar Hyperhidrosis Treatment


Sweaty hands, a medical condition called palmar hyperhidrosis, is the most common manifestation of excessive sweating problems.  Overactive sympathetic nerves can lead to sweaty palms so severe that sweat drips from the hands, even in a cool environment.  Hand sweat severity of this type often does not respond well to conservative treatments such as topical solutions such as deodorants like Drysol, Drionic devices,
oral medications or Botox.

 

Excessive hand sweating has been linked genetically to almost half of those who suffer from its
debilitating effects.  Hand sweat can begin in childhood, often when puberty begins, and
continue into adulthood.  Severe cases of sweaty hands can cause great stress in social situations
as well as make daily tasks such as writing on paper an embarrassing and difficult experience. 
Many with this condition recall handing in a test at school and being embarrassed because the
exam got so wet from their sweating hands that the answers were often smeared and the paper
would almost fall apart from getting soak with sweat.  Career paths were modified because the
sweating sufferer either couldn't perform functionally or socially with their sweaty palms. 

One online support organization called the International Hyperhidrosis Society has ranked the
severity of sweating and created four categories from mild to very severe hyperhidrosis of the hands.
Those with mild cases of hand sweating do not seem to be affected functionally or socially by the
problem.  The most severe wetness that affects a person socially and functionally is described as a
wetness that inhibits nearly all activities and is a problem on a daily basis, throughout the day, no
matter the temperature of the environment in which they are.

Treatment for sweaty hands is available today for those who have tried more conservative options
without resolution to their excessive sweating hands.  Microscopic instrumentation with video have
made it possible to perform endoscopic surgery through an extremely tiny
incision, one on each side of the body, in the axilla or armpit.  Due to the tiny
incision, and minimal disturbance of the body, surgery is performed on an
out-patient basis, meaning the patient goes home the same day of the surgery. 
Recovery is much faster because minimally invasive techniques do no disturb
surrounding tissue to a great extent.  This leads to much less pain, little time in
the hospital, and virtually no scarring.  In fact, the single incisions on each side
of the body in the armpits are so small that no sutures are needed, a skin
adhesive glues the incision closed until it heals.  To learn more about the
