Article in The Times - Treatment of Excessive Sweating

Today there was a very good article on the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the Times.

The article ran through the GP view of excessive sweating, the hormone expert's view (endocrinologist) and then the Surgeons View on how to treat it.

Mark Whiteley was the surgeon interviewed. He is quoted talking about his treating of underarm sweating with botulinum toxin for temporary relief and then LSA (Laser Sweat Ablation) for the permanent cure of underarm sweating.

  1. Dr. Whiteley my son has severe hand and feet sweating. Does this laser ablation work on hands and feet????

  2. Hi there,
    No - for the hands and feet he could try iontophoresis.
    If the hands are very bad, then ETS might be an option.
    Please see for more information.
    With good wishes,
