Although sweating is natural for the body, excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, can be detrimental to your everyday habits. Sweating occurs as a natural process that helps keep the body cooled as well as “maintain the body’s balance of fluids.” Sweating results in response to physical activity, but it can also be triggered by anxiety. Hyperhidrosis results when sweat glands become overactive from stimulation and are unable to shut off. The medical condition “affects 1% to 3% of the population.”

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis consult with Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Confortiwill attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Hyperhidrosis of the Feet

Hyperhidrosis is a rare disorder that can cause people to have excessive sweating of their feet. This can usually occur all on its own without rigorous activity involved. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may also experience sweaty palms.

Although it is said that sweating is a healthy process meant to cool down the body temperature and to maintain a proper internal temperature, hyperhidrosis may prove to be a huge hindrance on a person’s everyday life.

Plantar hyperhidrosis is considered to be the main form of hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis can refer to sweating that occurs in areas other than the feet or hands and armpits. Often this may be a sign of it being related to another medical condition such as menopause, hyperthyroidism and even Parkinson’s disease.

In order to alleviate this condition, it is important to see your doctor so that they may prescribe the necessary medications so that you can begin to live a normal life again. If this is left untreated, it is said that it will persist throughout an individual’s life.

A last resort approach would be surgery, but it is best to speak with your doctor to find out what may be the best treatment for you.

Excessive sweating is a medical condition that affects multiple people around the world. There are different forms of hyperhidrosis, with primary focal hyperhidrosis being more common and lacking a medical cause, and secondary hyperhidrosis, which can be caused by medical conditions. Effective treatment for hyperhidrosis involves prescription antiperspirant, medications, surgical removal of sweat glands, and iontophoresis, a procedure in which a machine administers electrical currents to affected areas to reduce sweating.  

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact Dr. Jeffrey Conforti of New Jersey. Dr. Conforti will treat your foot and ankle needs.
