Summer is upon us and unfortunately higher temperatures mean worsening of sweating issues for some of us. If you suffer from increased underarm sweating, worry about sweating through your clothes, work in close contact with others or in hot conditions or have to make public presentations
then you may consider treatment.
Generalised sweating can be due to certain medical conditions but often sweating just affects underarms, most commonly affected area without any underlying problems. If underarm sweating is significantly interfering with your daily activities and anti-perspirants have not worked, you may be a candidate for botulinum toxin type A treatment.
Often patients have tried various over-the-counter products
or stronger antiperspirants prescribed by the GP. One very simple and highly
effective treatment option is botulinum toxin injection treatment which can
result in dryness for up to one year or more. It takes only a few minutes and
almost all of our patients have it once a year. The alternatives are surgical
options or to do nothing. Lack of awareness can be a problem as we often see
patients who have suffered for years with this crippling condition. They are
delighted by the results from such a simple, quick and painless procedure.
