It is important that a medical assessment is done in order to determine the possible causes and type of hyperhidrosis a patient may have.
Primary focal hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating not caused by a medical problem or a side effect of medications.
Hyperhidrosis is the primary medical diagnosis and typically an episode of excess sweating occurs at least once a week on very specific focal areas of the body.
Interestingly, primary focal hyperhidrosis does not occur during sleep and may be inherited but never discussed inside the family because of embarrassment.
Treatment with Botox and other neuromodulators is safe because these glands do not affect temperature regulation and the underarm sweat glands consist of less than 2 % of the body’s sweat glands.
The cost of treatments for hyperhidrosis depends upon the size of the body treated but generally starts at about $1000 dollars for the injection of both underarms. In order to control the excess sweating, repeat injections are required usually every 6 to 14 months.
