Excessive Sweating is also known as Hyperhidrosis. This is when the body produces sweat in greater amounts than necessary for temperature control. It can be experienced in the underarms, hands/feet, face, scalp, groin, or breast areas. This can be distressing, unpleasant and may significantly affect quality of life. If Clinical Strength Antiperspirants are not effective, botulinum toxin may offer relief.
