In this article, we will explore the causes of palm sweating, available treatment options, and how our team can help you overcome this condition.

Understanding Palm Sweating

Palm sweating, medically known as palmar hyperhidrosis, is a common condition characterized by excessive sweating in the palms of the hands. While sweating is a natural response of our body to regulate body temperature, individuals with palmar hyperhidrosis experience sweat production beyond what is necessary for temperature control. This can be a significant source of discomfort, leading to social anxiety, embarrassment, and decreased quality of life.

Causes and Triggers

The exact causes of palm sweating are not fully understood. However, it is believed to be a result of overactive sweat glands in the palms, influenced by genetic and environmental factors. Common triggers for excessive palm sweating include stress, anxiety, hot weather, physical activity, and certain foods or beverages.

Available Treatment Options

At Neumark Surgery, we offer a range of effective treatment options to address palm sweating and provide relief to our patients. Our skilled doctors and plastic surgeons will evaluate your condition and recommend the most suitable approach tailored to your specific needs.

1. Topical Treatments

For mild cases of palmar hyperhidrosis, topical treatments such as antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate can be applied to the palms to reduce sweating. These antiperspirants work by temporarily blocking the sweat glands, providing relief for several hours.

2. Prescription Medications

In cases where topical treatments are ineffective, prescription medications may be prescribed. One common medication is anticholinergics, which work by blocking nerve signals that stimulate sweat production. While effective, these medications may have side effects and should be used under medical supervision.

3. Botox Injections

Botox injections have gained popularity as a safe and effective treatment for palm sweating. Botulinum toxin is injected into the palms, temporarily blocking the release of a chemical that activates sweat glands. The effect typically lasts for several months before additional injections are needed.

4. Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis is a non-invasive treatment method that involves the use of a device delivering a mild electrical current to the palms. This current temporarily blocks the sweat glands in the treated area, providing relief from excessive sweating. Regular treatments are needed to maintain the results.

5. Surgical Intervention

In severe cases of palm sweating that do not respond to other treatment options, surgical intervention may be considered. The most common surgical procedure for palm sweating is called thoracic sympathectomy, which involves cutting or clamping the nerves responsible for triggering sweat production. This procedure is highly effective but carries potential risks and should be discussed thoroughly with our experienced surgeons.
