Age 22 on sweaty hands
Sweaty hands since grade 8… that’s what I remember. It took me so much more time to get stuff done, exams especially. Paper use to be soaked, and the keyboard had to be repaired cause of the sweat. The mouse use to slip in my hand. Not a good feeling. No one in Cairns really knew what to do, but after seeing the guys at Sweat Free in Brisbane, I decided to go for surgery, and it really worked. I should have got this done years ago.
Palmar hyperhidrosis affects 2-3% of the population. It is often under diagnosed, and under treated by many doctors. We encourage patients to try the following before any surgical procedures. Firstly, use DRICLOR, secondly see a Dermatologist for iontophoresis or try some compounded anti-sweating creams to the hands. ETS surgery has a very high success rate for sweaty hands, however side effects such as compensatory sweating need to be considered.
