Offering help and treatment for excessive sweating.
Excessive sweating, beyond what is needed to control body temperature, is called hyperhidrosis and affects nearly 3 percent of the population. Most commonly, this excessive sweating occurs in the underarms, hands, feet, forehead or groin. Hyperhidrosis can have a profound impact on daily life, making even simple tasks and interactions difficult.
Fortunately, there are a number of effective options for treating excessive sweating. Dee Anna Glaser, M.D., and the team of professionals in SLUCare's Hyperhidrosis Clinic provide a thorough evaluation and discussion of treatment options that are best for your type of sweating disorder.
