Acupuncture for the Treatment of Hyperhidrosis: A Case Report

VAT Exempt
In stock
Hyperhidrosis (HH) manifests as excessive perspiration from different regions of the body, which can be both
uncomfortable and humiliating. The aetiologic factors associated with primary HH are inadequately understood.
The allopathic approach to treatment includes pharmaceutical or surgical interventions, which have demonstrated
efficacy but are generally invasive and associated with multiple adverse effects. This case presentation describes a
40 year-old male suffering from anxiety-related HH who was treated with acupuncture. Following the treatment, the
patient experienced a significant improvement in subjectively evaluated levels of stress, anxiety and perspiration.
The author concludes that acupuncture may be a safe and effective therapeutic modality to diminish the intensity of
primary HH to tolerable levels.
