A number of different treatments and products are available to help people with excessive underarm sweating. Here's an overview of some you may have heard about or considered trying.
If you have any questions about which treatment option may be right for you, you are welcome to speak to Dr. Hanna.
Often considered the "first line" of treatment for excessive underarm sweating, over-the-counter and prescription antiperspirants work by blocking sweat ducts, thereby reducing the amount of perspiration that reaches the skin. The most widely used ingredients in antiperspirants are metallic salts, including aluminum chloride hexahydrate. Antiperspirants can cause skin irritation, and higher concentrations of aluminum chloride can be destructive to fabrics. Deodorants help control body odor, which is caused by a reaction between bacteria and sweat. The deodorants work by making the skin more acidic, and hence less attractive to bacteria. They are often used in combination with antiperspirants to help control sweating in addition to odor.
BOTOX is FDA-approved for excessive underarm sweating that is inadequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the excessive sweating stops.
It is injected at 15-20 sites in the underarm. A decrease in sweating is noted after the injections. Usually, repeat treatments are needed every 4-6 months.
