Signs and Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis 

While there is no established guideline to determine what a ‘normal level’ of sweating is, if excessive sweating has begun interfering with your life, you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis. 

Some of the signs that you may be suffering from this condition include: 

  • Sweating makes doing your job or other daily activities, such as driving, using the computer, or writing, uncomfortable and difficult 
  • You are hesitant to make physical contact, such as hugging or shaking hands, due to your sweating
  • You avoid intense physical activity, such as dancing or exercise, because it makes your sweating problem worse 
  • You have become socially withdrawn or self-conscious due to your sweating
  • You spend a lot of time dealing with the consequences of excessive sweating, such as frequently showering, changing your clothes, or placing napkins under your armpits 

While hyperhidrosis is not life threatening, the symptoms can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, and may cause significant psychological distress which will affect your professional and personal lives. 

What Causes Hyperhidrosis? 

In most cases, hyperhidrosis has no obvious cause. It is thought to be the result of a problem with the part of the nervous system that controls sweating. However, there may be certain triggers which can make the condition worse, including: 

  • Anxiety
  • Pregnancy or menopause
  • Low blood sugar levels
  • An overactive thyroid gland
  • Obesity
  • Certain medications 

How Do You Treat Hyperhidrosis? 

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, the good news is that there are a number of effective treatments, including lifestyle changes and Botox, which may help manage your symptoms and reduce any discomfort caused by this condition. 

1. Botox For Hyperhidrosis 

Your skin specialist will recommend Botox for hyperhidrosis when topical treatments such as antiperspirants and medications have been unsuccessful at alleviating the symptoms. 

If you are considering Botox to help manage your condition, here is what you can expect: 

How does the Botox treatment work? Botox helps control sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This prevents sweat from being produced in the treatment areas. 

How long does the treatment take? Depending on the size and location of the treatment area, the treatment will take approximately 30 minutes. 

When will I notice the results? There will be a reduction in sweating within the first few days. However, it can take up to one week before you notice the full effects of your Botox treatments. 

Am I a good candidate for this treatment? Most patients are great candidates for Botox treatments for hyperhidrosis. However, it’s always best to book a consultation with your skin specialist first because Botox isn’t recommended for patients who are:

  • Pregnant 
  • Breastfeeding
  • Allergic to known components in Botox 

What are the benefits of Botox for hyperhidrosis? 

Botox is a great option for patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis because it offers safe and effective results and has many benefits, including: 

  • Only one treatment is needed for maximum results
  • Each treatment only takes 15-30 minutes 
  • The treatment doesn’t hurt
  • Effects can last up to 6 months
  • Botox doesn’t destroy the sweat glands unlike other treatments, such as microwave treatments 
  • There is no permanent damage to any tissue


2. Lifestyle Changes 

When treating hyperhidrosis, it is often recommended that you begin with the least invasive treatments, such as powerful antiperspirants. In addition to this, certain lifestyle changes can help minimize your sweating. 

This includes: 

  • Wearing light and loose clothes
  • Avoiding triggers such as alcohol or spicy food that could exacerbate your symptoms 
  • Losing weight
  • Wearing black or dark clothes to minimize signs of sweating 
  • Working to lower your stress or anxiety levels 
  • Using talcum powder to absorb any sweat
