Botox treatment against excessive sweating armpits (hyperhidrosis)

Sweating is a normal response of your body to heat: when you get hot you start to sweat, which will cool down your body.

When you have fever it is very likely that you will break out in a sweat, as your body temperature is higher than normal.

But some people sweat excessively without having fever, which is often the result of some other condition.

If the heavy sweating has no underlying medical cause, it is called primary hyperhidrosis. This type of sweating often occurs when the nerves responsible for triggering your sweat glands become overactive and ask for more perspiration, even when not needed. On might have excessive sweat glands in the hands, feet and armpits.

If the excessive sweating can be attributed to an underlying medical condition, then it’s called secondary hyperhidrosis. Following conditions may lead to sweat excessively: menopause, certain medications, psychiatric problems.
