Excessive Sweating Marietta GA

Sweat is a natural part of life. The body was designed to release sweat as a means of cooling the body when it is overheated. Sweating during exercise is normal, and many people judge the quality of their workouts by how much sweat is pouring off their bodies when they are finished. Not everyone likes to sweat, and many people sweat in different ways. Regardless of which camp you fall into, excessive sweating is an undesirable condition that can cause extreme embarrassment in social and personal situations.

The skin has two types of sweat glands: apocrine and eccrine. Eccrine glands are found all over the body. These glands are controlled by the nervous system and body temperature, and they open directly onto the surface of the skin. Apocrine glands, however, open into hair follicles that lead to the skin’s surface. When it comes to unwanted sweat, apocrine glands are the ones people are troubled by because they are responsible for the sweat on the scalp, armpits, and groin.

Having sweaty areas on the body is often as unpleasant as it is embarrassing. Standing up in front of your professional colleagues to give a presentation with sweaty armpit stains on your shirt is awkward. A sweaty groin area can be bothersome throughout the day, and because of its private nature, you are often unable to do much about it away from home.

Excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis, and it is a condition that affects millions of people in the United States each year. There are some causes of hyperhidrosis that are common to many sufferers:

  • Eating spicy foods
  • Excessive caffeine consumption
  • Emotions
  • Nerve disorders
  • Hormonal disturbances (pregnancy, menopause, etc.)
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Metastatic tumor
  • Disturbances of the sympathetic nervous system

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
