Hyperhidrosis: Can we avoid sweat patches in summer?


We all look forward to the summer months; glorious sunshine (if we’re lucky), light clothing, sunglasses and a spring in our step as we go about our day-to-day lives. What can dampen the mood somewhat, is those dreaded sweat patches that affect many of us in the warmer weather. In this blog we are going to talk a little bit about what kind of everyday solutions we can use to avoid sweat patches, and explore some long-lasting solutions available to you.


The 3 most common, everyday solutions to avoid sweat patches:

There are three very common and affordable temporary solutions for most of us when trying to avoid sweat patches:
• Anti-perspirant – I know it is stating the obvious, but ensuring that anti-perspirant is available at all times and used regularly can help with sweat patches.
• Spare shirts – Carrying a spare shirt on your person means that if the sweat patches become obvious and uncomfortable, then you can do a quick shirt-swap to avoid any potential embarrassment in public or social situations.
• Black clothing – Black clothing hides sweat patches quite well.

What to use when excessive sweating is a serious issue:

For some of us, excessive sweating is a serious issue and unfortunately is not helped much by trying the everyday solutions. In these cases, there are many emollient creams, moisturisers, and medications available on prescription. Botox is another effective treatment for hyperhidrosis; if this is an option that you are considering then it is worth booking a consultation with a specialist who can advise on the best treatment for you.

miraDry is the only long-term lasting solution to reduce perspiration. It is a safe, FDA cleared, clinically proven solution that can significantly reduce underarm sweat. miraDry is a treatment that does not involve any cuts or incisions and works by delivering controlled, electromagnetic energy to the patient’s underarm area, thus eliminating the underarm sweat glands. miraDry is a popular option for those seeking a lasting reduction of underarm sweat in a non-invasive treatment.
