For those experiencing heavy sweating in one or more of these areas, they can find it has a real impact on their quality of life. It can create issues with the colour and materials of your clothing choices, make you feel physically and emotionally uncomfortable, and reduce your self-esteem.
There are a few things you can try prior to hyperhidrosis treatment to see if they can alleviate your symptoms, such as:
• Cutting out any known triggers, such as alcohol or spices
• Wearing natural, breathable materials such as cotton and leather, rather than manmade fabrics like nylon
• Changing your deodorant to an antiperspirant, or asking your doctor to prescribe a stronger antiperspirant containing aluminium chloride
If you’ve already tried some of these ways of tackling heavy sweating but have found that they do little or nothing to control the issue, then you could be the ideal candidate for hyperhidrosis treatment.
Treating hyperhidrosis with Botulinum Toxin
