How to get rid of excessive sweating issue?

How to get rid of excessive sweating issue? I’m having severe sweating issue and because of that I’m not able to put makeup. One of my friends asked to me consult a cosmetic surgeon in my locality. What are the treatment used to get rid of excessive sweating? What are the risk associated with this treatment? Any suggestions are highly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The cause of excessive sweating needs to be determined. Treating the symptom alone will not be a useful approach. Conditions like hormonal imbalances, obesity, hyperthyroidism, tuberculosis, lymphoma/ malignancy, need to be looked for and ruled out before going for cosmetic surgical options or sympathectomy.

Wishing you best of health
