We all know that sweating is necessary for the efficient regulation of body temperature. However, when that limit is reached, then this can lead to excess sweating, known medically as Hyperhidrosis. It is a condition that can be somewhat uncomfortable, and very embarrassing. Hyperhidros is generally affects the underarms, but the hands, feet, and groin can also be affected.
While just about everyone sweats in reaction to excess heat and bouts of exercise, hyperhidrosis, takes sweating beyond the expected limit. If this happens to be a problem for you, then you will be glad to know that the problem is more common than you think, because it affects 1 in 20 people worldwide.However, for those who suffer from the condition, help is available in the form of Botox® and Dysport injections. These treatments are easy to administer, and are virtually pain free.
Traditionally, excessive sweating was treated by removing the sweat glands, or with oral medication. However, both of these options often met with limited success, and had serious side-effects. Sympathectomy was another traditional treatment for hyperhidrosis, but here again there was some serious side effects. In particular, it resulted in compensatory hyperhidrosis, a condition in which sweating no longer occurs in the hand or underarms, but now moves to another part of the body that was previously unaffected.
