New York Hyperhidrosis
Have you ever been afraid to attend a meeting due to excessive perspiration?
Do you worry that you will be perceived as nervous or insecure from having sweaty palms or underarm perspiration?
If these issues are common occurrences, you are not alone. It has been estimated that approximately 3 million people in the United States have a condition known as Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating disorder. Hyperhidrosis can be a socially embarrassing condition that significantly impairs your quality of life. The most common areas for Hyperhidrosis are in the hands (palmar hyperhidrosis), face, the feet (plantar hyperhidrosis), and under the arms (axillary hyperhidrosis). While many perceive this condition to be a result of anxiety or nervousness, the condition is in fact a genetic condition that can cause you to sweat spontaneously while even in familiar settings.
By creating this website, New York Hyperhidrosis Surgeon Dr. Stewart Fox is seeking to educate you about the condition and provide the information necessary to determine if you have Hyperhidrosis; and if so what are your options. While this website provides excellent information, by no means is it meant to be a substitute for a consultation with the doctor. If after reading this site, you should want to schedule an appointment with Dr. Fox, please call 1-516-255-5011. We look forward to hearing from you.
