FDA approved for hyperhidrosis

Do you feel like you sweat more noticeably or more often than others? It may not be your imagination. Many men and women struggle with a condition called hyperhidrosis, which is characterized by excessive underarm sweating. Common signs and symptoms that may mean you have hyperhidrosis include:

  • Constant sweating

  • More sweat than normal under the arms

  • Armpit stains on shirts

  • Strong body odor

  • Antiperspirants don’t work

Although sweating is a normal process and naturally occurs in response to stress, fear, exercise, and being in a hot environment, patients with hyperhidrosis may sweat excessively at any time, with or without an obvious cause.

How is hyperhidrosis treated?
