The DOC Clinic offers a number of excessive sweating treatment options to sufferers of hyperhidrosis in Melbourne.
This disorder is characterised by an increased production of sweat, disproportionate to the amount required to compensate for environmental conditions or thermoregulatory needs. It is estimated that hyperhidrosis in men and women occurs in equal numbers.
Hypderhydrosis is an uncomfortable chronic condition for patients that can cause physical distress and social awkwardness, negatively impacting on daily activities and impairing performance and productivity at work. This can result in higher rates of depression and reduced levels of confidence among sufferers.
Dr Omarjee is available to discuss pricing with you during your first consultation. Consultations are available at our clinic in Hoppers Crossing (conveniently located for Werribee and Point Cook patients).
It’s important to remember that while it is not always possible to determine the causes of hyperhidrosis in men and women, the right excessive sweating treatment can help you manage this condition comfortably.

If excessive sweating seems to be triggered by an existing medical condition, then it is known as secondary hyperhidrosis. In this case, causes of hyperhydrosis in women and men can include conditions such as:
