While seating is a perfectly natural way for the body to cool down, excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) can have major social effects on those who suffer from the condition. Patients afflicted with this disorder can routinely soak through clothing in a matter of minutes, and must resort to the use of pads, shields, absorbent tissues, and frequently have to change their clothing just to cope with the constant embarrassment. Thankfully, treatment options are available for excessive sweating.
Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox®-Dysport®)
Today, chronic sufferers of Hyperhidrosis can enjoy relief thanks to the use of Botox® Injections. A recent study conducted in Europe has concluded that through a series of Botox® injections, patients experienced relatively complete relief from the symptoms and there were virtually no side effects.
