Sweaty Hands and Feet (Hyperhidrosis)

Health Inspectorate WalesSuffering from sweaty hands and feet?

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) can affect any part of the body where there are sweat glands, but it is on the palms of the hands that it can prove particularly embarrassing.

 

Treatment

An effective treatment for excessive sweating on the palms is Iontophoresis where sufferers submerge their hands in a tray of water, through which a small electric current is passed.

The treatment blocks the sweat glands and normally last around 20-30 minutes. Normally the treatment requires twice weekly sessions over 4-6 weeks, in which time the symptoms the patient will see signs of improvement. Our professional nursing staff can advise on the best course of treatment for this condition and how to manage this over the longer term.
