Skin Care An Overview Of Treatments For Excess Perspiration

Skin Care an​ Overview of​ Treatments for​ Excess Perspiration
The main treatments of​ excess perspiration are Use of​ antiperspirants,​ Botulinum toxin Botox,​ Surgery,​ Iontophoresis,​ and​ Anticholinergic ​Drug​s . ​
Let us look at​ them in​ more detail . ​

Antiperspirants this is​ the​ first treatment to​ be tried for​ anybody with excessive perspiration . ​
Antiperspirants are metal salts,​ mainly aluminum salts that are used to​ block the​ sweat glands and​ block the​ sweat from coming on​ the​ skin surface . ​

Botulinum toxin Botox Botulinum toxin paralyzes muscles . ​
That is​ why it​ is​ commonly used to​ treat wrinkles . ​
Its injections also block the​ action of​ the​ nerves that activate sweat glands to​ produce sweat . ​
the​ treatment may be painful for​ injecting the​ toxin in​ the​ palms or​ soles of​ feet,​ because multiple injections are given with a​ very fine needle near the​ sweat glands . ​
if​ your doctor misses some glands,​ you​ will continue to​ sweat from there . ​
Depending on​ your response,​ the​ injections may be repeated after about six months or​ more . ​

Surgery in​ common surgical procedure,​ the​ sweat glands are removed . ​
in​ some cases a​ surgery called Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy is​ performed in​ which nerves are cut so that they cannot pass on​ the​ message to​ sweat glands . ​
Surgery cannot stop sweat all over the​ body but only for​ certain parts such as​ armpits or​ hands . ​
This kind of​ surgery is​ now done using endoscopes and​ is​ less painful compared to​ the​ surgery of​ earlier times . ​
But with ETS,​ you​ may begin sweating more profusely from other parts of​ your body . ​
This kind of​ surgery is​ not preferred by many surgeons and​ before any surgery you​ must talk about all possible results and​ side effects with your surgeon . ​
Surgery is​ only resorted to​ if​ other treatments fail . ​

Iontophoresis in​ this procedure a​ low current is​ passed on​ the​ affected area . ​
This procedure is​ mainly used for​ palms and​ feet . ​
This is​ a​ recommended procedure for​ hose that do not get much relief from antiperspirants . ​
in​ Iontophoresis,​ patients sit with their palms or​ feet in​ shallow water through which a​ mild current is​ passed for​ between 20 to​ 40 minutes . ​
This is​ repeated every alternate day for​ five to​ ten days till sweating is​ considerably reduced . ​
After that a​ maintenance schedule is​ maintained . ​
it​ is​ not known how Iontophoresis works,​ but it​ is​ thought that the​ water and​ electricity somehow thicken the​ skin and​ block the​ sweat pores . ​
This procedure is​ not recommended for​ pregnant women or​ people with pacemakers or​ any metal implants in​ body . ​

Anticholinergic ​Drug​s these ​Drug​s act by blocking the​ action of​ chemical messengers in​ the​ body that activate the​ sweat glands . ​
as​ the​ action of​ these messengers is​ blocked,​ the​ sweat stops getting produced . ​
These ​Drug​s may have other side effects such as​ loss of​ taste,​ constipation,​ blurred vision etc . ​
you​ must speak to​ your doctor about all the​ side effects of​ these ​Drug​s . ​
