Abilify And Hyperhidrosis Or Cysts
Pcos pearl shaped cysts, all hormones normal no androgens high, all ratios normal lh/fsh, hyperhidrosis, what/why is this happening please help?
Not PCOS: Reading your question, the only clear-cut problem i see is hyperhidrosis. This is not a disease and it's hard to quantify "some people just sweat more than others." it is not clear from above that you have pcos; if you do, this wouldn't even be in the top 10 likely causes. Thyroid disease, pituitary disease, and diabetes are sometimes linked to hyperhidrosis, but the list goes on. ...Read more

Sweat Treatment: Excessive sweat is easy to treat with Botox injections. These are very tiny injections and not usually uncomfortable. The treatment should last at least 6 months and is often covered by insurance. Alternatively, one can use clinical strength antiperspirant available off the shelf. The secret is to apply it at night before bed. It can be washed in the morning and will still work. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

MEDS, procedure: First, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) needs a work-up: hgh level, thyroid tests, & rarely carcinoid/pheochromocytoma needs to be considered. Topical anti-perspirants containing aluminum chloride (drysol) 10-20% may help. Oral anti-cholinergic med (glycopyrrolate) or beta blocker (bp pill) has helped some. Iontophoresis, and Botox has also been successful. Finally there's surgery, sympathecomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
