It is known that hyperhidrosis can severely impact a patient’s life, often deterring people from making social interactions and causing discomfort in general. This is especially true for adolescents who need social connections to mature properly. Treating hyperhidrosis in this patient population is important for this reason. Results of this particular study indicate that “tap water iontophoresis is useful and effective in reducing the sweat output in children with primary palmar hyperhidrosis.”
