Many Americans have a medical condition named severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis better known to you as severe underarm sweating. Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition that involves overactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body’s temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body’s normal requirements for cooling. As you probably know, people with the condition do a lot to cope:
- Change clothes frequently
- Put absorbent materials under clothing
- Avoid certain fabrics and styles of clothes
- Seek medical attention and treatment
While people with severe underarm sweating may choose many different antiperspirants, in some instances those products do not work well enough for their sweating. Clothes can be a real issue, because the wrong choice can reveal your severe underarm sweating condition rather than hide it. Your wardrobe can be very limited and you may have to purchase new clothing frequently.
When clinical strength antiperspirants do not work well enough, ask your dermatologist if BOTOX® could be right for you. For more information about severe underarm sweating, visit the International Hyperhidrosis Society Web site at www.SweatHelp.org.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.
BOTOX® (onbotulinumtoxinA) can be injected into the skin to possibly help the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough in people 18 years and older.
BOTOX® neurotoxin treatment can help control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.
When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating can decrease. BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily freeze the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat can continue to be produced elsewhere
Where does the sweat go? Your sweat doesn’t go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
