Welcome to the Centre for Blushing and Sweating

The constant fear of facial blushing (erythrophobia), a red face or excessive sweating of the hands, face or underarms/armpits (hyperhidrosis) can result in a feeling of frustration, embarrassment, and unhappiness.  Many patients feel these conditions often “holds back” their life, both socially and at work. Some patients develop avoidance behavior, which can be at work or socially.  Impaired quality of life and a social phobia can develop.  Facial blushing and hyperhidrosis can be successfully treated by various methods including new laser therapy and  “key hole”surgical technique called Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy.

Some patients suffer from excessive face, hand or underarm/armpit sweating.  Some patients suffer from a fear of facial blushing, facial flushing or a red face..  Whilst these two conditions often do not occur together in the same patient, occasionally they do.  There can be some overlap in the cause of these symptoms and in some of the treatment options available.
