Heavy sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis) is a very real and embarrassing problem, but there are some effective ways to treat it. What is hyperhidrosis? Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a common disorder which produces a lot of unhappiness. An estimated 2-3% of people suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis) or of the palms and soles of the feet (palmoplantar hyperhidrosis). Underarm problems tend to start in late adolescence, while palm and sole sweating often begins earlier, around the age 13 (on the average). Untreated, these problems may continue throughout life. Sweating is embarrassing, it stains clothes, ruins personal contact, and complicates business and social interactions. Severe cases can have serious practical consequences as well, making it hard for people who suffer from it to hold a pen, grip a car steering wheel, or shake hands. Causes of hyperhidrosis:- although neurologic, endocrine, infectious, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause hyperhidrosis, most cases occur in people who are otherwise healthy. Heat and emotions may trigger hyperhidrosis in some, but many who suffer from hyperhidrosis sweat nearly all their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather. Antiperspirants this may be the first treatment that a dermatologist recommends. It is affordable. When applied as directed, an antiperspirant can be effective. Your dermatologist may recommend a regular or clinical-strength antiperspirant. Some patients need a stronger antiperspirant and receive a prescription for one. Iontophoresis (the no-sweat machine) if excessive sweating affects your hands, feet, or both areas, this may be an option. You will use this treatment at home. It requires you to immerse your hands or feet in a shallow pan of tap water. As you do this, a medical device sends a low-voltage current through the water. Many people obtain relief. Some people dislike that this treatment can be time-consuming. Uses: hands and feet it works by the electric current shuts down the treated sweat glands temporarily. Side effects: some people develop: •dry skin •irritated skin •discomfort during treatment prescription medicine some patients receive a prescription for a medicine that temporarily prevents them from sweating. These medicines work throughout the body. However we cannot prescribe in open question answer session as a rule but you can ask in consultation. These medicines prevent the sweat glands from working. Athletes, people who work in a hot place, and anyone who lives in a warm climate should use extreme caution when using this treatment. The body may not be able to cool itself. Uses: these medicines can effectively treat sweating that involves entire body. This medicine also can be an effective treatment for post-menopausal women who sweat excessively only from their head. Side effects: the medicines that prevent the sweat glands from working can cause: •dry mouth •dry eyes •blurry vision •heart palpations (abnormal heartbeat) surgery if other treatments fail to bring relief, surgery may be considered. Surgery is permanent and carries risks. The following surgeries can stop excessive sweating: •surgically remove sweat glands •sympathectomy a dermatologist can surgically remove sweat glands from the underarms. This surgery can be performed in a dermatologist’s office. Only the area to be treated is numbed, so the patient remains awake during the surgery. A dermatologist may use one or more of the following surgical techniques to remove sweat glands from the underarms: •excision (cut out sweat glands) •liposuction (remove with suction) •curettage (scrape out) •laser surgery (vaporize) sympathectomy is another surgery used to treat hyperhidrosis. This is major surgery, which a surgeon performs in an operating room. During sympathectomy, the surgeon tries to stop the nerve signals that your body sends to the sweat glands. To do this, the surgeon will cut or destroy certain nerves. To find these nerves, the surgeon inserts a mini surgical camera into the patient’s chest just beneath the underarm. The patient’s lung must be temporarily collapsed so that the surgeon can cut or destroy nerves. Uses: •surgical removal of sweat glands is used to treat the underarms •sympathectomy is mainly used to treat the palms.

Hi, 6,7 years ago I felt pain while I sat or felt pressure on my hips. I looked there and there was a bump on the inner side of the beginning of my hips. I thought it was a pimple and I tried to squish it but it would not. So I just punctured it with a needle I thought at the time that it was a good idea. But it bled a little and the pressure was gone I didn't feel pain. But the problem is I have a wound there that has been there since then? It bleeds sometimes. The transparent liquid comes out sometimes. It is causing me a great deal of discomfort. It hurts too. If anyone can help me I'll be really thankful.

Your sister has an accidental injury and needs to apply a cream like Fusiwal or T-BACT OINTMENT which may be used to avoid bacterial contamination of small wounds, incisions and other clean lesions, and to prevent infection of abrasions and small cuts and wounds. Understand that the creams will not immediately make wounds heal and deeper wounds need stitching

Traumatic Wound - Know How To Manage It!

Traumatic Wound - Know How To Manage It!

Traumatic Wounds are basically cutting, mutilation and puncture lesion. In this, the skin and tissues underneath it are damaged. These can be minor or severe depending upon
the amount of damage caused by the wound. There are basically three types of traumatic wounds depending upon their level of severity.
The first type is Acute wounds in which the skin is ripped off with a rugged appearance. Another type of Traumatic Wound is Cut Wound in which a sharp object punctures the skin and tissues underneath it. Third and the last type of the Traumatic Wound which is also the severity of the three is the Penetrating Wound which is caused by gunshot or stabbing.

Causes of Traumatic Wound-
There can be several reasons or causes of these Traumatic Wounds. Some of them are:

● Accidents
● Animal Bites
● Cuts, usually those happening with knives
● Scrapping off the skin against rough surface or glass
● Gunshots can have both entry and exit injuries

Treatment-
The treatment of Traumatic Wounds depends upon its severity. If it is a cut or scrapes off the skin, it can be treated at home with dressing, but if it is severe as gunshot and stabbing, then one needs to go through surgery and it is life-threatening. To recover from the penetrating Traumatic Wounds, one needs a good amount of time and sometimes physical therapies post-surgeries. Obviously, there are various treatments depending upon the type of Traumatic Wound, but there is a very common idea behind every treatment and general procedure.

First of all, in all the Traumatic Wounds, the injured area is cleaned with sterile saline solution to make it dirt free and apply antibiotic cream or gel to prevent infection. The wound is then covered with a bandage to protect it from further injury and infection. These acute Traumatic Wounds heal really fast and sometimes do not even need a dressing. In the Penetrating Traumatic Wounds, one needs to be operated under anesthesia. The wound is cleaned and the bullet or anything in the wound is taken out. After proper cleaning and ensuring that nothing is left inside the wound, the injured part is stitched and covered with the bandage. Throughout the treatment, the patient is monitored as these types of injuries can result in an excess amount of blood loss. An individual takes quite a long time to recover from these kinds of Traumatic Wounds depending upon the part of the body which is injured. In an Abrasion, the wound is cleaned and made dirt free and bandaged. It is not as serious as the Penetrating Traumatic Wounds.
 

Take Away- 
Traumatic Wounds are sudden injuries which can be caused by a number of reasons. They can be as minor as a cut and as severe as a gunshot. Their treatment depends upon the severity of the Traumatic Wound. But sometimes, minor Traumatic Wounds can lead to infections if not cleaned or caused by some infected object or animal. Minor Traumatic Wounds can be treated by the local doctor, but the severe ones such as a gunshot need immediate medical care as it can lead to death if not treated rightly and on time.
