The news of a heatwave is welcome for many Brits, with temperatures of 28 degrees forecast by the end of the week.
However, those who suffer from hyperhidrosis may be less enthusiastic about this news.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition also known as excessive sweating, where the amount sufferers sweat is above average – even when using strong anti-perspirants.
This is most often noticeable when the condition affects the underarms, as the sweat can’t evaporate fast enough and leaves visible damp patches on clothing. It can also have an unpleasant odour, causing further embarrassment.
The condition tends to affect patients year round, even on the coldest days, but inevitably is even more difficult when the weather is warm. Worrying about the signs being noticed makes it worse as the sweat also increases as a natural response to stress.
There is a quick and reliable treatment for excessive sweating which has helped many people to get on top of the condition and enjoy the confidence of cool, dry underarms even on the hottest days.
The non-surgical treatment involves injecting Botox® (botulinum toxin) into the underarm area. This works to block the signals which trigger sweating and literally dries up the condition almost immediately with full results developing over a couple of days.
Treatment doesn’t last forever, but it can be repeated in the future (6-12 months is the norm). Some lucky patients, report that treatment seems to have a longer term effect, breaking the cycle.
