Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by abnormally increased sweating, in excess of that required for regulation of body temperature.

Although primarily a physical burden, hyperhidrosis can deteriorate the quality of life from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective.

Axillary (armpit) hyperhidrosis is effectively treated with botox injections. Botulinum Toxin blocks the nerve signals to the sweat glands, stopping the sympathetic nerves from working.

The effect is temporary but usually lasts about six months.
