Excessive Sweating medically known as Hyperhidrosis, can have a major effect on your lifestyle if untreated. Although sweating is your body’s natural response to heat, hypersensitivity of the glands can produce excessive underarm, hand, face or feet sweating.
The reasons for excessive sweating are varied, but is normally due to overactivity of the sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis usually starts in childhood and is due to family history in about 30-50% of people. But, hyperhidrosis can also be caused by an underlying medical condition or a side effect of prescribed medication.
The best treatment to tackle excessive sweating with Dr Victoria involves using botox injections. As the toxin is injected into the overactive sweat glands, they block the pathways and stop excess sweat from being produced. This form of treatment can seriously improve quality of life and lasts up to 3-6 months at a time, making hyperhidrosis a much more manageable condition.
