Approximately 3 % of the population suffer from pathological perspiration. For those affected, this is extremely stressful in terms of occupation, health and psycho-socially. Pathological perspiration, whose medical term is hyperhidrosis, may occur in generalized or localized form. In most cases, a functional disorder of the sweat glands is the cause of this complex clinical picture. What many of its sufferers do not know: Here are effective treatment options. In dermatological therapy practice, the application of a stepwise treatment is widely practiced. Depending on the clinical manifestation, the therapy options range from stress management through external applications and physical treatments to pharmacotherapy and surgical measures. This book provides a detailed overview of the causes, clinical phenomena and treatment options for hyperhidrosis and its special form bromhidrosis, also called fetid sweat.
