What Is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that refers to excessive sweating in the armpits, hands or feet. Those who experience the condition have the same perspiration triggers as everyone else, such as exercise, stress and heat, but they tend to also sweat unpredictably and severely throughout the day regardless of weather, emotions or activity level.

Should I Consider Hyperhidrosis Treatment?

  • Does perspiration seem to occupy your thoughts and plans?
  • Do you avoid shaking hands for fear of embarrassment?
  • Do you constantly keep your arms down so no one will notice your sweat stains?
  • Are you self-conscious in intimate situations because you’re afraid of sweating too much?
  • Do you avoid certain clothing because you fear unsightly perspiration stains?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, you should consider scheduling a confidential consultation and assessment with Dr. Weichert. She will evaluate your condition, answer your questions and explain all of your treatment options.
