Acupuncture for the Treatment of Hyperhidrosis: A Case Report

Acupuncture for the Treatment of Hyperhidrosis: A Case Report

Hyperhidrosis (HH) manifests as excessive perspiration from different regions of the body, which can be both uncomfortable and humiliating. The aetiologic factors associated with primary HH are inadequately understood. The allopathic approach to treatment includes pharmaceutical or surgical interventions, which have demonstrated efficacy but are generally invasive and associated with multiple adverse effects. This case presentation describes a 40 year-old male suffering from anxiety-related HH who was treated with acupuncture. Following the treatment, the patient experienced a significant improvement in subjectively evaluated levels of stress, anxiety and perspiration. The author concludes that acupuncture may be a safe and effective therapeutic modality to diminish the intensity of primary HH to tolerable levels.
