Erythrophobia - blushing

Excessive blushing can be eliminated with a high degree of probability. Either by conservative methods or, as a last resort, by surgery to block the nerve impulses responsible for the blushing. However, such an “endoscopic thoracic sympathetic block (ETS)” also leads to a change in sweating regulation, so-called “compensatory sweating”, and should therefore only be considered if drug treatment is unsuccessful.

If you are affected by excessive blushing, you can also immediately take advantage of systematic drug treatment under our care online. Book our online coaching and treatment program “PIO Erythrophobia”.

With “Pio Ery” you will either find a solution for your blushing issue or possibly create the conditions for your health insurance to cover the hospital costs of the operation.

Any questions?

Yes, primary hyperhidrosis is genetic. You will find other affected people in your extended family,even if you may have to search longer.

Hyperhidrosis is caused by a disorder in the control of sweating, which we can detect using neurophysiological tests. Then it is also clear whether the hyperhidrosis is primary or secondary.

You have chosen an “expensive” disease. Only some of the possible measures are covered by public health insurance: Iontophoresis, Axhidrox and any necessary surgeries. This leaves medication, which was not developed for hyperhidrosis and therefore has to be paid for privately, but is generally not very expensive. Expect to pay one euro per day for drug treatment. German private health insurance companies usually cover everything, including neurophysiological testing and PIO.

No, you can start online immediately. If we do not obtain sufficient clarity about your status within the PIO online treatment, we’ll recommend a visit.

You may find differing philosophies regarding ETS or ELS operations elsewhere, so let’s be clear about our position here:

  • Before the operation, you absolutely need a prognosis regarding the expected “compensatory sweating”. Many patients come to us who regret their operation because they were not properly informed.

  • Compensatory sweating ALWAYS occurs after the operation. It is therefore necessary to test what can be done about this beforehand.

  • Easier measures often lead to success. This is why health insurance companies only cover the costs of the operation if other measures have been tried without success.

For you, this means that you first need a diagnosis appointment, then a treatment phase lasting several weeks (ideally via PIO) and then the surgery appointment.

A first attempt at treatment often leads to good results and considerable relief. However, this does not necesserely mean that you have already reached your optimum treatment level. You will only know if this is the case once you have tried alternatives. To enable you to do this “from the comfort of your own sofa”, we offer the online coaching and treatment program “PIO”.
