School Nurses, Sweaty Students, and Spreading Hyperhidrosis Awareness!
Fighting back against Hyperhidrosis is only possible if we can keep spreading awareness among students and teachers. Can you spot the signs?
HYPERHIDROSIS: BAD FOR SELF IMAGE (AND THEN SOME)
If you want to refresh your medical knowledge of this disorder you can have a read about it on WebMD, otherwise, read on to find out what signs you should look out for as a school nurse.
SIGNS OF HYPERHIDROSIS IN STUDENTS
Since Hyperhidrosis can also be a secondary condition, talking to the student to ascertain if there is an underlying issue might be advisable. It may be that the student is suffering from another condition which the teachers – or even their parents – have not recognized.
Spotting Hyperhidrosis and treating it when understood, can halt the damage it is doing to your patients and reverse any issues it has caused before they have a chance to take root.
HYPERHIDROSIS AFFECTS STUDENT’S MENTAL HEALTH
It is a known fact that excessive sweating can undermine a student’s confidence and make it almost impossible for them to interact socially on a healthy level.
This study, in the NCBI library, can summarize what impact the disorder has on a patient’s quality of life if it is left unchecked. Early intervention becomes one of the many vital duties carried by the school nurse.
TREATMENT FOR HYPERHIDROSIS
There is an effective, FDA-approved treatment that students can purchase for in-home use with a prescription from their doctor. This treatment is known as Iontophoresis. Contact our Treatment Specialists to learn more.
Get to the heart of the matter, devise a treatment plan, and help keep your students in good health. Together, we can maintain high school sweat to a minimum!
