Hyperhidrosis is a physiological, medical condition characterised by excessive or unexpected sweating. While it is natural for the body to sweat, sweating beyond what is necessary to maintain a normal body temperature can be irritating to the skin, embarrassing, and stressful. Minute injections of a neurotoxin into the palm, underarm or foot sole have helped millions of people in treating this condition.
People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may constantly worry about how much they are sweating. Occasionally, people with excessive sweating undergo emotional problems, including low moods and decreased confidence. When hyperhidrosis affects the hands, feet, armpits or face, it is called primary hyperhidrosis. When hyperhidrosis is caused by another medical condition or a medication, it is called secondary hyperhidrosis. Many medical conditions may cause secondary hyperhidrosis, including endocrine disorders. Additionally, this skin concern can be related to anxiety disorders. Fortunately, excessive sweating injections are available as a safe and effective treatment option.
Neurotoxin injections work by blocking the nerves responsible for activating your sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with hyperhidrosis, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. When you receive neurotoxin injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially weakened. When your nerves cannot signal your sweat glands, you no longer sweat in the specific areas where they have been injected. Studies show that this method works effectively to treat forehead, underarm and palm sweat, and researchers believe that they could also be an effective excessive foot sweating treatment.

Excessive sweating can have a number of causes, including: • Thyroid issues • Menopause • Anxiety • Nervous system disorders • Side effect of medication • And others
If you’re often sweating through your clothes and feeling embarrassed, there’s a good chance that hyperhidrosis could be affecting your work and social life. Feeling self-conscious about other people noticing excessive sweating is common, but if constant excessive sweating is impacting heavily on your work or social life, it may be worth seeking treatment to restore confidence.
Menopause is one of the most common causes of excessive sweating in sleep, but other causes can include stress, anxiety, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and taking certain medications. If you’re experiencing excessive sweating at night, you should consult with your doctor to determine the cause.
