Sweating hands, in addition to physical discomfort, also causes psychological inconvenience. It makes it harder to socialize, make social connections, get a job, and even develop romantic relationships. Therefore, hyperhidrosis of the palms is a common reason for people of any age and gender to visit doctors. Especially this pathology worries women, because they are the most sensitive, and take this problem «close to their hearts.»
Causes of hyperhidrosis of the palms
There are many known factors that provoke excessive sweating of the hands. The most common among them:
- vegetovascular dystonia;
- hereditary predisposition;
- increased concentration of catecholamines in the blood;
- severe and constant stress;
- chronic infectious diseases;
- general hyperhidrosis;
- traumatic brain injury;
- endocrine pathologies;
- diseases of the central nervous system;
- hormonal imbalance;
- overactivity of the sweat glands.
Standard treatment for palmar hyperhidrosis
Drug therapy for excessive sweating involves a complex scheme that includes:
1. Special hygiene products:
- medical antiperspirant;
- deodorants with antimicrobial action;
- powders based on zinc and tannin.
2. Local preparations:
3. Pills for hyperhidrosis of the palms:
- sedatives (with sweating due to nervousness).

Also, with hyperhidrosis of the palms, Botox or a similar drug Dysport is injected. Injections allow you to solve the problem for a long period, from 6 to 12 months, have practically no contraindications and are effective in 99% of cases.
Laser and surgical treatment of hyperhidrosis of the palms
If none of the above methods helps to cope with hand sweating, surgical intervention, thoracic endoscopic sympathectomy, is recommended. The effectiveness of the operation is very high, reaching 96%. The only side effect after the procedure is compensatory hyperhidrosis — an increase in the intensity of the sweat glands in other parts of the body.
Laser treatment of the considered pathology is not carried out, it is carried out exclusively for hyperhidrosis of the armpits.
