Don't Sweat It
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is a condition affecting an estimated 7.8 million people in the U.S. This sweating can be quite profuse and severe. It may not be triggered in response to heat or emotion, but may just flow for no reason at all. Those who suffer with this problem can find themselves quite compromised in social or occupational settings. Individuals report soaking through several shirts necessitating frequent changing. BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) by Allergan can offer temporary relief for this troubling situation. Many tiny injections into the axilla (or underarms)can bring dramatic improvement for around eight months.
