Question: My 10 year old daughter suffers from hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet. Is this something that will even out after puberty, or will puberty only worsen it? Siobhan

Answer: Dear Siobhan,

Hyperhidrosis is in most cases an inherited condition that usually surfaces during childhood and in most cases lasts for the rest of a person's life. This condition affects more women than men.

Different treatment options are available for hyperdrosis from antiperspirants to minimally invasive surgery.
