I have a big problem: hyperhidrosis. It’s not only since I’m in Taiwan. If I’m going out, meeting with friends or just sit at home - I’m sweeting all the time under my armpits. By now I only wear black clothes all the time cos otherwise I just have massive sweat stains under my armpit. All my shirts already have some kind of sweat patches, it’s really depressing
But I heard there is a new technique for combating hyperhidrosis. Its called suction curettage. They just scratch/suck out the sweat glands from ur armpits. Do u know if there are any hospitals in Taipei, which offer Suction Curettage especially since it’s a relative new technique? Or which hospital do u recommend especially for foreigners? I only came here like 1 month ago so my chinese isnt good enough to ask for some medical procedures.
Thanks in advance
Umm, give yourself more time to adjust. You can also use botox injections to stop sweating but, I think the body is sweating for a reason and its ok you know. I sweat a lot and I don’t really care, just make sure I drink enough water etc… Hope that helps.
remove the hair under your arms and don’t worry, you are here just a month, the weather is different and it’s really hot sometimes. It’s getting colder now, so maybe its getting better?
It’s not because of the weather I think. Cos even when im sitting in my appartment and its only 23°C I’m still sweating. I had this problem in Europe as well and I already thought about getting the operation in europe, but there it was about 1200€. So I thought it might be practical if I get the surgery when I’m here. :s
So can anybody recommend any hospital for surgergies where they speak english?
Nearly all doctors speak good english, so no worries there.
Hospitals I recommend ( i don’t have any knowledge of your issue though)
