What Is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that effects over 4 million Americans and causes excessive sweating that can cause a person to sweat excessively, even if they're not stressed or overheated. Those who have hyperhidrosis commonly experience heavy sweating in the hands, face, feet, scalp or underarms. Impacting men and women alike, hyperhidrosis occurs due to overactive sweat glands (over stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system) that causes heavy sweating that can soak through and stain clothing, effect a persons self confidence and interfere with your job or social life. While hyperhidrosis is usually not a dangerous condition, it often causes self-esteem issues and other psychological difficulties for individuals affected by it. Chronic sweating of the hands and feet may cause maceration of the skin with superimposed fungal or bacterial infections, craking of the skin and an adverse odor.
The good news is at Basin Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, our team specializes in effective ways to treat excessive sweating using Botox. While Botox has been typically used to treat lines and wrinkles in the cosmetic arena, it has been FDA approved to treat over-active sweating.

What Are Some Causes and Treatments for Hyperhidrosis?
While sweat is often caused by factors, like heat, physical exertion, or nervousness, hyperhidrosis has a set of specific causes.
