Multidisciplinary Care for
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating, occurs when the nerve that controls sweating—the sympathetic nerve—is oversensitive and causes the overproduction of sweat.
We provide a holistic approach to treating hyperhidrosis and other dysautonomia conditions, disorders in the autonomic nervous system (ANS), through innovative genetic research and multiple treatment options for patients to restore their confidence.
Why Choose Johns Hopkins for Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Our researchers have discovered a gene that connects hyperhidrosis and other dysautonomia conditions, allowing us to provide more effective treatment options for you.
Our program collaborates with specialists that treat other autonomic nervous system (ANS) disorders that may coexist with hyperhidrosis for optimal care.
More Treatment Options
We offer a full range of treatment options for hyperhidrosis including minimally and noninvasive surgical options for patients that continue to experience symptoms after taking medication.
