only a medical professional can diagnose hyperhidrosis
Since hyperhidrosis is a medical condition of the skin, it is usually diagnosed and treated by a dermatologist (a healthcare professional who specializes in skin conditions).
However, your primary care doctor may also be able to provide you with information and advice.
Talking to a medical professional whom you feel comfortable with is an important first step in managing excessive sweating.
“In working with my doctor, we think we have found a good balance for me while I still feel great on the inside and out.”

One study showed that only 51% of people with hyperhidrosis have discussed it with their doctor.
The key is: Don’t put it off. Diagnosis of hyperhidrosis is often delayed because people are too embarrassed to discuss their condition with a healthcare professional. Starting the conversation may be easier than you think… especially with a little help.
