Bromhidrosis, commonly known as excessive or unpleasant body odor, can significantly impact your quality of life. Our dedicated team of dermatologists is here to offer a range of specialized treatments to address bromhidrosis and help you regain confidence in your daily life.
Bromhidrosis is a condition characterized by an unpleasant odor emanating from the skin, typically caused by the breakdown of sweat by bacteria on the skin’s surface or the actions of apocrine glands. It can affect various parts of the body, such as the underarms, feet, and groin, leading to social discomfort and self-consciousness.
Comprehensive Treatment Options
Our dermatologists may recommend prescription-strength antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride to control excessive sweating and manage the odor associated with bromhidrosis. These products work by reducing sweat production in the treated areas. For targeted relief, we also offer topical glycopyrrolate, a powerful anticholinergic agent that inhibits sweat gland activity, reducing sweat production in specific areas.
In cases where topical treatments are not sufficient, we offer Botox injections as an effective solution. Botox temporarily blocks the nerve signals responsible for sweat production, providing long-lasting relief from excessive sweating and the associated odor.
This non-invasive procedure involves the use of a low electrical current to reduce sweat gland activity. Iontophoresis is particularly effective for treating bromhidrosis affecting the hands and feet.
Certain medications, such as anticholinergics, may be prescribed to help control excessive sweating and manage bromhidrosis. Our dermatologists will carefully evaluate your medical history and individual needs to determine the most suitable medication for you.
Laser treatments can be employed to target and destroy sweat glands, providing a longer-term solution for bromhidrosis. This minimally invasive procedure is often well-tolerated and can lead to a significant reduction in sweat production.
Miradry is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that utilizes radiofrequency energy to target and permanently eliminate sweat and odor glands in the underarms. This FDA-approved procedure offers a long-lasting solution to bromhidrosis with minimal downtime.
For severe cases of bromhidrosis that do not respond to other treatments, surgical interventions like sympathectomy may be considered. Our experienced dermatologic surgeons will thoroughly discuss the risks and benefits of such procedures to help you make informed decisions about your care.
