Experiencing some sweat during the day is to be expected, so how do you know if you have hyperhydrosis and need help with how to stop excessive sweating? Some signs of the condition are:
- Clothes that are stained with sweat during a normal daily routine that does not include intense exercise
- Relationships and intimacy suffer because of sweating
- Embarrassment and feeling self-conscious about the amount of sweat in business and social settings

Am I a Candidate for Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Hyperhidrosis may be caused by certain medical conditions, so you should be evaluated by Dr. Llewellyn if you feel self-conscious about how much you sweat. He reviews your medical history and personal experiences to determine if you have primary hyperhidrosis, meaning that your sweating is not secondary to a medical problem or secondary hyperhidrosis and is associated with a medial issue that may need to be addressed to resolve your excessive sweating.
What Should I Expect from Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
Treatment for your hyperhidrosis will depend upon the cause of your hyperhydrosis. You can reduce excessive sweating with safe and comfortable Botox® injections if you do not have an underlying medical condition. The injections affect the way your body releases sweat so that you experience a more normal level of perspiration in every environment. Dr. Llewellyn explains the treatment during the consultation. Dr. Llewellyn may also recommend prescription antiperspirants, medications, lifestyle changes, and other ways to better manage your sweat.
