Botox Treatment Sorted Out My Sweating Hyperhidrosis!

Whilst many have welcomed the soaring temperatures in Kent this summer, there will have been a huge number of people that will have inwardly groaned at the mere thought of enduring weeks of sweltering daytime temperatures and humid, stuffy hot nights! There are many unfortunate people, who through no fault of their own, suffer from Hyperhidrosis; a condition where the bodies sweat glands become overactive, which causes the body to constantly sweat, regardless of whether it is hot, cold or there has been physical exertion.

Sweating is the body’s natural way of controlling its temperature. Sweating can be triggered by the weather, at times of personal stress and anxiety, whilst exercising or doing a manual activity. It is believed that there are over 100,000 people in the UK that suffer from Hyperhidrosis and many of these will have been suffering silently with this embarrassing and self-limiting problem for some time. Hyperhidrosis can be brought about as an unwanted side effect from taking certain medications, it can be a symptom of an underlying illness and it can often just come on for no apparent reason as a person goes through puberty. Hyperhidrosis can affect the whole body or just the underarms, hands, feet or the face.  Excessive sweating can have a hugely negative effect on the sufferers’ everyday life, as it affects confidence, self- esteem, and overall mental health. It can also impinge on daily activity, relationships and work choices. Without correct treatment Hyperhidrosis can trigger off other unwanted health conditions, owing to the harmful bacteria that can build up as a result of sweating excessively; including unsightly and irritating skin conditions, fungal infections and body odour (BO)
