Sweating is a normal function of the body to remove heat so that the body remains at a normal temperature. Although it is a normal function, it may bother a person. This is often seen in people who perspire excessively, also known as hyperhydrosis. A person may suffer from the effects of excessive sweating, such as the smell and sweat patches.
There are several treatments available for hyperhydrosis. Creams can be applied and pills swallowed. One can also opt for treatment with botox (botulinum toxin). The botulinum toxin blocks the nerves to the sweat glands. As a result, they are temporarily unable to produce any sweat. The effect of the treatment is maximal within 2 weeks after the treatment and lasts for 4 to 6 months after the first treatment. After this, the botulinum toxin wears off. If someone takes a follow-up treatment at that time, the effect lasts longer, namely 6 to 12 months.
