Hyperhidrosis is a common disorder of the sweat glands of the skin which leads to excessive sweating which can cause embarrassment and discomfort to the person in his social life. Hyperhidrosis can affect localized regions like underarms, groin, neck, elbow and feet or can also be generalized in the entire body.
Primary hyperhidrosis is linked with the patients metabolic, mental and emotional state. Secondary hyperhidrosis is caused due to underlying health issues like diabetes, parkinson’s disease, obesity, anxiety , alcoholism, and pregnancy.
BOTOX can be used to block the sweat glands of the skin and hence stop the excessive sweating. Some patients might need more than one botox injections. BOTOX can control hyperhidrosis for atleast half a year.
