Excessive sweating can affect your entire body or just your palms, soles, underarms or face. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is usually defined as a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. Besides disrupting normal daily activities, excessive sweating can cause social anxiety or embarrassment.
Antiperspirants and deodorants are 2 of the first options people with excessive sweating try. Antiperspirants work by blocking sweat ducts and reducing the amount of perspiration that reaches the skin, while deodorants help control body odor. When these products don’t work well enough, it may be time to consider Botox.
