EXCESS SWEATING…..there are solutions available
If this proves unsuccessful, or causes undue irritation of the skin, then Botox has indeed been shown to be very effective for this condition. Using a very fine needle, a number of very small injections are made to the relevant area, in your case to the armpit. Once fully effective (typically after one to two weeks) the Botox blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the sweat glands, and this eliminates the production of sweat in the treated area. It is very effective, though the effects are not permanent, and treatment would typically need to be repeated after six to ten months.
