Excessive sweating, known as Hyperhidrosis, commonly affects the underarms, hands and feet. It can be an embarrassing and very visible condition for the individual and often made worse when in a stressful situation and during exercise.
Some people find there is no real cause and it can happen spontaneously. Many sufferers develop Hyperhidrosis during their teenage years and through into adulthood.
Doctors are not entirely sure what causes Hyperhidrosis, but it can be treated using mainly Botox® Injections in the areas affected. This works by blocking the signals from the nerves to the sweat glands, which would usually trigger a sweating response.
