Botox Excessive Sweating Hyperhidrosis Treatment
Excessive armpit sweating (hyperhidrosis) can cause depression and social anxiety
Excessive armpit sweating affects many people. An estimated 2-3% of the population suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms (axillary hyperhidrosis). Armpit sweat usually starts in late adolescence.
In severe cases excess armpit sweating can have serious practical consequences. People can start to feel depressed, stop going out with friends, and feel anxious about work.
Not surprisingly people who have armpit sweating problems will seek help and advice. Unfortunately, so-called first-line treatments like aluminium hydroxide spray and iontophoresis are often not effective for armpit sweating.
What is the cause of excessive underarm sweat?
Although neurologic, metabolic, and other systemic diseases can sometimes cause excessive armpit sweating, most cases of hyperhidrosis occur in people who are otherwise healthy.
Sufferers may sweat more at certain times of the day or after having alcohol, coffee, tea, hot or spicy food, or maybe when they are more stressed or anxious. Some people find that heat or emotions trigger their hyperhydrosis, whereas others sweat excessively regardless of what they eat or drink, their mood or their environment.
If you suffer from excessive armpit sweating and feel that your quality of life is being affected then a hyperhidrosis botox underarm sweat treatment may well help you.
