Hyperhidrosis severity scale

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a common condition affecting some 2.8% of the population. Unfortunately, despite effective treatment, only about one-third of those affected seek treatment.

This is a simple questionnaire which can help you to decide if you should seek a consultation. It may also help the doctor decide which therapy is best for you. Call 1800 321 987 for appointments and information.Lines are open Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm (Eastern Standard Time).
