    Compensation for hyperhidrosis treatment injury


    Compensation for hyperhidrosis treatment injury

    Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can cause distress among sufferers, particularly during summer weather or during holidays. Only certain types and colours of clothing can be worn to reduce the effects and its visibility and prescription antiperspirants are often provided. However, in extreme cases, these do not help the sufferer on a day-to-day basis, causing discomfort and stress, particularly when wearing tight clothing. There are various cosmetic treatments available, some are available at your local dermatology clinic and others may have to be carried out privately. These include Iontophoresis which uses an electric current to block the sweat glands. A more recent therapy is the use of Botox which reduces the amount of sweat produced in sufferers. The toxin can be injected into various areas including the forehead and under the arms. Although these treatments are regulated, it is best to seek the advice of your medical professional before going for treatment. Risks are reduced if the hyperhidrosis procedure is performed correctly and by a registered practitioner.

    What are the potential risks?

    Side-effects of both treatments may include pain at the treatment site, swelling, redness and inflammation. There may be more severe effects if the treatment is not administered by a medical professional who is fully qualified in the correct doses to give. Although adverse effects are rare, Botox may cause paralysis or bacterial infections if the dose is not administered correctly or equipment is not sterilised properly. In these cases, where you have evidence that someone was negligent, you may be able to win a cash payout. If you suffer an injury or an adverse reaction due to someone else’s negligence then Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in making a compensation claim.
