What causes hyperhydrosis?

The cause of hyperhidrosis is not fully understood. However, it is very likely genetic as the majority of patients with hyperhidrosis have a sibling or parents with the same condition. It can also be caused by certain ailments such as hyperthyroidism, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, spinal cord injury and a host of other issues

Treatment for hyperhidrosis

The solution for hyperhidrosis is using botulinum toxin (Botox) which is injected in a small dose just under the skin. This blocks the nerves which supply the sweat glands which prevents the glands from producing sweat. The results last for longer than the anti-wrinkle treatment for Botox, lasting for 5 to 6 months.

Although this is not a permanent solution, it makes the condition easily manageable for patients making their lives much more comfortable.
