Severe Under Arm Sweating

For some people, sweating can go into overdrive. Severe underarm sweating, also known as severe primary hyperhidrosis, is a condition in which the body sweats more than it has to in order to regulate body temperature. BOTOX® has been FDA approved to treat severe underarm sweating, a condition caused from overactive sweat glands that are so severe, “over-the-counter” antiperspirants or deodorants do little to manage the problem. BOTOX® treatments help control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The treatment usually lasts for approximately 6 months.
