Sweating is an involuntary action, it is not something that can be conquered via mind over matter.
It’s the body’s way of keeping cool. However, those that find they are still sweating with temperatures heading down towards single figures could be experiencing ‘excessive sweating’.
This uncomfortable problem occurs when the body sweats above average levels, causing embarrassment and discomfort. Unfortunately, stress makes the problem even worse, so worrying about whether anybody has noticed the sweat patches is likely to make them worse.
Excessive Sweating Treatment
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Years ago, it could only be treated with medication that had nasty side effects or highly invasive surgery to cut the sweat glands.
Nowadays, there is a non-surgical treatment that offers effective relief for months at a time.
Botox is more often associated with anti-ageing skin treatments. Yet a few excessive sweating injections into the affected area (usually the underarms) will block the signals to sweat leaving armpits dry.
The injections work quickly and last for months, at which point they can be repeated; although some lucky patients have reported that botox treatment for sweating has ‘broken the cycle’ so that the problem does not recur to the same level.
Dr John Tanqueray is a highly experienced GP who also has his own well-established skin clinic. Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre in Hardingstone offer sweat reduction injections for the underarms with excellent success rates.
