Hyperhidrosis

Without any sweat, the body will overheat. Sometimes, however, the body can produce too much sweat-a condition known as excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. The International Hyperhidrosis Society (IHS)-of which PURAX is a member-estimates that "up to 8 million people or 3% of the U.S. population" struggles with this condition. "Unfortunately," an IHS fact sheet explains, "many people suffer with hyperhidrosis in isolation and silence because they do not believe there is anything that can be done, that it is a diagnosable medical condition, and that they are among millions who suffer the same."

There are a variety of invasive, electromotive, and surgical solutions to hyperhidrosis:

  • Botox can be injected into the skin to reduce excessive sweating. The invasive procedure is, however, expensive, and must be repeated every 4-6 months. In addition, the patient runs the risk of life-threatening side effects.
  • Iontophoresis therapy involves using a weak electrical current that stimulates the mineral carrying ions. While this is a relatively safe and effective solution to excessive sweating, it only works on the hands and feet, and the therapy must be repeated periodically.
  • Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS) is a dangerous surgery which involves disabling the nerves responsible for sweating in certain parts of the body by clamping or severing them. This procedure is the riskiest and most expensive of the treatments; ETS should only be carried out for the most extreme cases of hyperhidrosis.
PURAX offers a full line of effective, noninvasive and nonsurgical sweat-defense products to deal with the problem of perspiration, safely and inexpensively.
