Hyperhidrosis is caused by overactive sweat glands. Sweat functions to regulate temperature in the body but, in cases of hyperhidrosis, the sweating is far beyond a simple regulating function to cool the body.
What options are available to me?
In some cases, focal injections of botulinum toxin A (Botox Therapeutic™) can serve to block the nerves from receiving signals that stimulate sweat glands. Botox Therapeutic™ is approved for treating excessive sweating of the underarms and serves to prevent the release of a chemical that signals the sweat glands to activate. *This is a non-permanent treatment and injections are repeated at intervals to maintain results.
