Dr. Saurabh Lodha
This was my first appointment with a dermatologist and it was a lot less scary than anticipated! Dr. Lodha is full of knowledge and little facts that will make u want to treat your skin with more respect. He did not lecture yet he explained and I was very thankful for that. I would recommend anyone to go and see their new office – it’s great Dr. Lodha, was very reassuring about my concerns. He was also very explicit and caring about the small procedure he was performing. He was very thorough, gave me as much time as I needed, responding to my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha...

Excessive Sweating

Some people sweat in amounts greater than needed to cool the body, a condition called Hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis usually affects the palms of the hands, soles of the feet and underarms. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, hyperhidrosis can cause social anxiety or embarrassment. The cause of hyperhidrosis stems from your body’s temperature regulation system, specifically your sweat glands.

Treatments: There are a variety of ways to treat hyperhidrosis. Dr. Lodha usually starts with a topical approach and then can also prescribe pills to help the condition. If these methods fail, Botox may also be injected in the areas to help reduce sweating. This treatment has been FDA approved in the armpits (axilla) and is usually covered by insurance. This treatment usually lasts 6 months where patients experience a dramatic reduction in sweating. For many, it is a life changing treatment.
