Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can be a stressful and embarrassing condition but there are treatments available to manage the condition.

We will treat all types of Hyperhidrosis and with a GP referral we will bulk bill any severe primary axillary (underarm) hyperhidrosis.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis, try these things first:

  • Use ‘clinical strength’ antiperspirants
  • Wear natural fabrics (eg cotton, wool or silk)
  • Manage stress and anxiety with relaxation techniques

If you are still experiencing troublesome sweating discuss these options with your doctor:

  • Botulinum toxin (Botox®) injections. This is a safe and effective treatment of all types of hyperhidrosis. Axillary (underarms), sweating of the hands, feet, head and face.
  • Prescription cream (glycopyrrolate) can be helpful for excessive sweating of the face and head. This can however be quite expensive.
  • Oral medications can reduce sweating. Anti-cholinergic agents such as Benztropine reduce sweating but can also cause dry mouth, light headedness, blurred vision, and fatigue.
  • Surgical treatments and other devices are sometimes considered in treatment resistant cases
