Hyperhidrosis is a common condition where a person sweats excessively. Excessive sweating can occur anywhere on the body but is a treatable condition.
Many men suffer with Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating), it is a relatively common condition that can often be embarrassing and distressing, with it being notoriously challenging to treat. Excessive Sweating can occur anywhere at work, at the gym or just day to day, with symptoms often getting worst during the summer months. There is no such guideline on the ‘normal’ amount to sweat, however if you feel that you overly sweat and it is effecting your day to day life you may want to look into available treatments. Often it is not clear why Hyperhidrosis develops however there are treatments available that can dramatically reduce symptoms.
Excessive sweating can occur anywhere on the body, the most commonly effected areas being:
- Palms of your hands
- Soles of your feet
- Face and Chest
Hyperhidrosis treatment works by injecting Botox into the area that is producing excess sweat e.g armpits. This injection blocks the nerve impulses that produce sweat allowing excessive sweating to be reduced.

What causes Hyperhidrosis?
There are two types of Hyperhidrosis, Primary and Secondary each having different causes.Primary Hyperhidrosis
Primary Hyperhidrosis is when there is no obvious cause for the excessive sweating. The main theory being that there is a problem with the nervous system that controls sweat, genetics can also play a role.
Secondary Hyperhidrosis is when the cause of excessive sweating can be identified. There are a number of different causes such as but not limited to:
- Over-active Thyroid

However Botox can also be used to treat Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), the protein is injected into the affected area of the body e.g Armpits therefore blocking signals from the brain to the sweat glands reducing the amount of sweat that is being produced.
