If basic treatments such as antiperspirants aren’t helping with your hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, your doctor may want you to consider Botox injections as a temporary treatment.
Botox®, or botulinum toxin type A, is used as a treatment for severe underarm sweating. Small doses of purified botulinum toxin are injected into your underarm to temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating. It as also possible to treat your palms and feet with Botox.
This treatment can be effective, but the injections can be painful and expensive, and the effect is temporary.
