Hi all Defence aspirants. By now most of you would have got a good knowledge on all aspects of the SSB interview. Thanks to SSB Crack J But little do we know about the medical examination that follows the Conference. There are many posts in SSB crack regarding the medical examination procedure and the medical standards that one should satisfy in order to get into the armed forces. So in this article I am going to share my knowledge and experience on hyperhidrosis. In simple language, “Sweaty palms and feet”.
What is Hyperhidrosis?
What causes it ?
|Fig: An excerpt from the “Medical Standards for Officer Candidates”|
How to cure Hyperhidrosis?
What is Iontophoresis?
- Plastic trays (30 cm x 20 cm approx.) – 2 Nos.
- 9 Volt radio battery – 1 No.
- 9 V Battery Clip Connector – 1 No.
- Alligator clips – 2 Nos.
- Aluminium foil sheet (used to pack hot rotis)
- Connecting wires
- Baking soda
- Table salt
How to make and use the setup?
- Cover the Plastic trays with aluminium foil. Connect the battery to the covered trays using wires and alligator clips.
- Pour tap water to a certain level (so as to cover your palms) and add some table salt and baking soda (1 teaspoon) to make the water more conductive.
- Place your both your hands in the trays in order to close the circuit and let the current flow through your body. You might feel a little tingling sensation but do not worry, as the current intensity from a battery is not high enough to give you a shock.
- After doing this for 15 mins, now interchange your hands and keep it in the other tray (left hand in right tray & right hand in left tray) and continue the treatment for another 15 mins.
- Take this treatment more often initially i.e. once in a day during the 1st week and then gradually reduce it to just two times in a week, as you may start noticing a reduction in your sweat levels from the second week itself.
