What Is Plantar Hyperhidrosis Caused By?

Monday, 23 December 2019 00:00

Patients who have feet that sweat excessively may have a condition that is known as plantar hyperhidrosis. It may occur from having overactive sweat glands, and can cause discomfort and embarrassment. There are several reasons why plantar hyperhidrosis may develop. These can consist of having an overactive thyroid, taking certain medications, or having anxiety attacks. It may be controlled by using a strong antiperspirant, having specific medicines prescribed, or undergoing a surgical procedure. If you are suffering from this condition, please consult with a podiatrist as quickly as possible who can properly treat this condition.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact one of our podiatrists of Central Ohio Comprehensive Foot Care. Our doctors can provide the care you need to attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Hyperhidrosis of the Feet

Hyperhidrosis is a rare disorder that can cause people to have excessive sweating of their feet. This can usually occur all on its own without rigorous activity involved. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may also experience sweaty palms.

Although it is said that sweating is a healthy process meant to cool down the body temperature and to maintain a proper internal temperature, hyperhidrosis may prove to be a huge hindrance on a person’s everyday life.

Plantar hyperhidrosis is considered to be the main form of hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis can refer to sweating that occurs in areas other than the feet or hands and armpits. Often this may be a sign of it being related to another medical condition such as menopause, hyperthyroidism and even Parkinson’s disease.

In order to alleviate this condition, it is important to see your doctor so that they may prescribe the necessary medications so that you can begin to live a normal life again. If this is left untreated, it is said that it will persist throughout an individual’s life.

A last resort approach would be surgery, but it is best to speak with your doctor to find out what may be the best treatment for you.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Delaware and Westerville, OH. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
