For individuals dealing with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, Dr. Kurzman can help.

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition which causes excessive sweating. Excessive sweating occurs when a person sweats more than is required for cooling. People with this condition can sweat when the body does not need any cooling. It often causes sweating from one or two areas of the body such as the palms, feet, underarms, or head. While the rest of the body can remain dry, one or two of these areas can drip with sweat. This can interfere with everyday routines. Hands can be so sweaty that it is difficult to turn a door handle or operate a computer. Sweat from the underarms can soak through clothes which can make people feel self-conscious. Because the skin is frequently wet, skin infections can also develop.
