Question
Posted by: Becca | 2010/11/18

Excessive sweating

I have a huge problem with constant sweating. Even during winter when I am too cold for words I sweat.
I am so embarrassed to go out because no matter how much deo I use with in minutes my underarms are soaking.
I have tried almost all the different types of deo''s and anti-perspirant on the market. I have even considered having botox injections to help with my problem.
My mother also had a major problem with underarm sweating and actually had her sweat glands surgically removed, which I am considering.

Is there anything on the market that can help, or is my only option to have my sweat glands under my arms removed?
Please help

Hallo Becca
This is called hyperhydrosis.
There are various treatment options: botox, medication like Probanthine, operation (removal of glands or sympathectomy)
