Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterized by excessive sweating that occurs in up to 1% of the population. The excessive sweating can occur in the hands (palmar hyperhidrosis), in the armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis), or in the feet (plantar hyperhidrosis).

The initial treatment for hyperhidrosis is usually medical and does not involve surgery. A newer treatment for hyperhidrosis is when a small amount of BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is placed into the armpits or palms, it stops those areas from getting clammy and sweaty.
