Excessive sweating can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Whether you’re in the office, or at the gym, this sometimes odorous annoyance can be unavoidable. Therapeutic Botox may be the solution for you when deodorants and antiperspirants just aren’t doing the job. There are two categories of hyperhidrosis: localized and generalized. These conditions most commonly effect underarms, palms, soles of feet, face or scalp but can sometimes effect the entire body. Excessive sweating is simply that, it does not mean that there is anything wrong with our health. The tendency can sometimes be inherited.
Localized hyperhidrosis usually affects a single area, and can be triggered by fear and anxiety, spicy foods, alcohol, exercise and hot weather.
Generalized hyperhidrosis affects the entire body and is often associated with underlying causes such as menopause, thyroid conditions, nervous system disorders and certain medications.
