Excess sweating in the armpits, on hands or feet is a very disagreeable issue for all concerned. Sometimes the body produces sweat excessively and uncontrollably, regardless of temperature, time of day or season.
Diligent diagnostics are extremely important to recognize underlying diseases. If the condition is isolated, focal sweating, for instance in the armpits, local medical therapies can be prescribed initially for sweat regulation. Treatment with botulinumtoxin A is highly effective, involving injection of an extremely diluted solution into the skin. It effectively inhibits sweat production for approximately 6 months. Treatment can be repeated periodically.
