Sweating of hands is called Palmar Hyperhidrosis. whereby sweat is excessively secreted out of one’s hands. Other forms of Hyperhidrosis include planter (feet) and facial (face), axillary Hyperhidrosis (underarm). A person suffering from Hyperhidrosis may experience excessive sweating in more than one area of the body.
Signs of Palmar Hyperhidrosis Symptoms:
You experience your hands feeling clammy and perspire more than normal. Sometimes, it results to dripping sweat and it's very irritating when you have to shake somebody's hand.The temperature of your palms compared to your other body parts is outstandingly higher.Your skin seems to peel when you excessively sweat. It's different from scaling but it's more close to exfoliating.
After the excessive sweating of palms, extreme dryness of palms is noticed.
Palmar Hyperhidrosis Treatments Cures:
Yoga, Meditation, weight loss may be used to control.
Iontophoresis is another treatment for Palmar Hyperhidrosis. This technique uses exchange of electrical ions between the skin and a tray of water with electrical current. Ion exchange process causes the skin in your hands and feet to thicken slightly. This process actually helps to block the sweat glands. You will have to immerse your hands and feet in a water tray with electrical charge for this treatment. This treatment has been fairly successful and not costly.
Botox helps reduce or even stop sweaty palms, But the key drawback is that Botox is not a cure, rather more a continuous maintenance procedure with diminishing returns.
ETS or endoscopic thoracic Sympathectomy is a surgical procedure whereby related localized nerves and sweat glands are clipped or burnt to stop sweating. This procedure directly addresses your sweaty palms issue and does stop the sweaty hands sweating. However, the cost of such a surgery could set you back by a good few thousand dollars. Research proves that 100 percent of ETS patients develop compensatory sweating on their underarms, torso, feet and parts of the face. If ETS is meant for eradication of embarrassing sweaty moments, imagine the new frustrations you could face with compensatory sweating.
