Excessive sweating in the armpits, on hands or feet is a very disagreeable issue for all concerned. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a very common disorder when the body produces sweat excessively and uncontrollably, regardless of temperature, time of day, or season.
Underarm excessive sweating problems tend to start in late adolescence, and palm and feet sweating often begins even earlier around the age of 13. The condition can occur in people who are otherwise healthy.
Hyperhidrosis may be triggered by heat and emotions in some patients. However, many people who have this condition sweat constantly during their waking hours, regardless of their mood or the weather.
Diligent diagnostics are extremely important to recognize underlying diseases. If the condition is isolated, such as focal sweating in the armpits, local medical therapies can be prescribed initially for sweat regulation.
Treatment with Botulinum toxin cosmetic produce is a highly effective solution for excessive sweating, involving injection of an extremely diluted solution into the skin. Botulinum toxin is FDA-approved for treating this condition of the underarms, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. It effectively inhibits sweat production for approximately 6 months, but the results can last for up to a year. You may need to have several Botulinum toxin injections and treatment can be repeated periodically.
