Got a Date? Stop Excessive Sweating!

Portland Excessive Sweating Treatment

Not being able to control the excessive sweating of your underarm or palms can be a big turn off.  That is why Hyperhidrosis Treatment in Portland, OR is now available at Norris Dermatology and Laser Northwest.  Hyperhidrosis is the medical terminology for excessive sweating which can affect areas of the body like the palms, armpits, soles of the feet, chest, back and even the face.  Dr. Norris and staff can examine the causes of your excessive sweating and prescribe the correct treatment.

It is common for us to sweat when the temperature is hot or while we are working out in the gym.  But it is very embarrassing to sweat in a normal setting. A person with hyperhidrosis sweats excessively in everyday situations.  There are health factors that can cause excessive sweating such as when the patient is taking medications.  Our genetic components can also be a factor of causing this common disorder.   Dr. Patricia Norris’s diagnosis of the problem will include a careful check of these factors.

It is very common for people to use antiperspirants to control or stop underarm sweating.  Our underarms have the apocrine glands which are efficient enough to produce more sweat than the rest of our body.  A mixture of anti-perspiration products in the form of roll-on antiperspirants and sprays are in continuous displays in stores.  Yet, there are some useful tips that we can do to help us cope up with excessive sweating:

  • Avoid eating spicy, sugar filled and chemically processed food
  • Avoid caffeine
  • Take a bath daily
  • Unload some extra pounds of your weight
  • Put on comfortable, lightweight and breathable clothes

Hyperhidrosis treatments may consist of tests to diagnose the excessive sweating.  After the diagnosis, your doctor will recommend treatments products such as antiperspirants, medication and probably a Botox treatment.
