Management of generalized hyperhidrosis (generalised sweating)

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Treatment is often unsatisfactory. Causes of generalized hyperhidrosis should be identified where possible and appropriately treated. If anxiety is a precipitating or contributing factor then measures such as oral anxiolytics, relaxation training and cognitive behaviour therapy may be beneficial.

In some instances oral anticholinergic drugs may be beneficial.
