Best Hyperhidrosis Treatments
People with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively even when they are not in a hot environment or being physically active. It is estimated that over 10 million people in the US alone suffer from hyperhidrosis. 90% of these are afflicted with primary axillary hyperhidrosis - excessive sweating in the armpits.
Other areas commonly affected are the hands and feet, but some people also experience it on the face, on the scalp, between the breasts, in the groin, on the lower back, or on the buttocks. Hyperhidrosis usually involves overactive eccrine glands, these glands sweat which helps cool you down. When they are overactive, they produce more sweat than your body needs.
Excessive sweating can be treated with Botox. In a similar way to how it relaxes muscles, Botox temporarily disables the nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands. Botox is FDA-approved for treating hyperhidrosis in the armpits, and here it is extremely effective. Is can also be used in the palms, feet, and face. Results can last as long as a year. If you have a medical diagnosis of hyperhidrosis Botox may be the answer.
There’s no medical cause for primary focal hyperhidrosis, which usually affects your palms and soles and sometimes your face.
Primary hyperhidrosis has a hereditary component and can run in families. People with this kind of hyperhidrosis often start sweating for no reason It can be triggered or made worse by anxiety or heat.
Secondary generalized hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating throughout the body. is less common and typically comes on later in life. It can also be triggered by menopausal hot flashes and pregnancy.
