Hyperhidrosis (Underarm Sweating)

About the Course

Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating excessively when your body does not need to cool down.

This course will enable you to treat those patients who suffer with hyperhidrosis.

There are two types of hyperhidrosis:

- Primary focal hyperhidrosis

- Secondary generalised hyperhidrosis

Both genders are affected by hyperhidrosis and the condition can cause embarrassment and awkwardness in social situations.

We look at the most common areas for patients to experience excessive sweating:

- The palms of the hands (Palmar Hyperhidrosis)

- Soles of the feet (Plantar Hyperhidrosis)

- The armpits (Axillary Hyperhidrosis)
