A Hyperhidrosis Specialist?
I want to ask, what specialist doctor treats hyperhidrosis? n nthank you.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which a person sweats excessively, even though there are no things that trigger sweating, such as hot temperatures, sports activities, things that make you anxious, and so on. People with hyperhidrosis, the sweat can flow so much that the level of sweat penetrates the clothes and drips into the hands, although at the same time, other people do not sweat.
This condition does not seriously affect health, but is clearly disturbing and adversely affects the quality of life of sufferers and can cause embarrassment, stress, and anxiety. The causes of this condition are:
Genetic or hereditary disorders
Blood cell disorders
Low blood sugar levels
Drug side effects
Regarding your question, because sweat is a matter directly related to the skin, the doctor who is best suited to treat your problem is a dermatologist or a dermatologist. Your doctor will then perform supporting tests such as blood tests, urine tests and sweat tests to determine which of the above causes you to have this condition. The treatment you will receive later depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, among what you can do at home is avoiding wearing tight clothes, avoiding consumption of spicy food and alcohol, using antiperspirants, wearing white or black clothes to disguise sweat marks, cleaning your body regularly and using socks that absorb moisture. So, hopefully it answers your question.
