Sweating is a physiological condition which follows as response to overheating of the body. Triggers can be physical exertion, mental exertion or pyrexia.
If you experience excessive sweating for no apparent reason, it is called hyperhidrosis. At the beginning it is always important to search for cause of excessive sweating. It can be because of hormones (thyroid disorders), sex hormones (gynecological problems, irregular cycle) or it may cause some substances, for example caffeine. If sweating is caused by any of these causes, we treat the initial cause and do not suppress the sweating.
If we do not find the cause of sweating, we are talking about the condition called primary hyperhidrosis. In this case, we can think about how to suppress excessive sweating to not to cause discomfort and aesthetic problem.
The most modern way to remove excessive sweating, is the application of botulinum toxin directly to the area of excessive sweating. It may be well armpits, palms, footmarks or hair area of head. We can use botulinum toxin in all those places.

Patients are often concerned about application of botulinum toxin to one area of the body shall increase sweating in other parts of the body. But these fears are unnecessary.
