Primary hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, affects between 1-2% of the population. It most commonly involves the axillae (underarms), hands and feet. Treatments provided at the Institute include iontophoresis and injections.
At your appointment we will perform an assessment of your excessive perspiration, a sweat test and obtain a thorough medical history. We ask you to fill out quality of life questionnaires when attending clinic as well as sweat testing to get an objective assessment of your condition.
Your type of treatment dictates your frequency of review appointments. Patients are generally reviewed in the Hyperhidrosis Clinic every three months. This may vary according to the individual and the complexity of issues involved in the various treatments.
This clinic operates on a Friday.
