Hyperhidrosis is excessive underarm sweating. Sweating is one of the most important ways in which the body loses heat, however people with Hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their body temperature due to an over activity of the sweat gland.
Muscle relaxing injections are recommended for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis as when injected into the skin they block the actions of the nerves supplying the accrine glands. This prevents the glands from producing sweat.
This treatment will normally be repeated two to three times a year to maintain results.
