NeedleHyperhidrosis, or Excessive Sweating as its more commonly known, is a sensitive condition suffered by many people, and is especially frequent in young adults, some of whose perspiration may be caused by an underlying medical condition. But a Jamaican Dermatologist has said the condition has a number of both Surgical and non-surgical remedies, and the most suitable option can depend on the degree to which an individual suffers from it.Dr Arusha Campbell-Chambers, who runs a group of skin clinics on the Caribbean island, told the Jamaican newspaper The Gleaner that avoiding conditions which trigger Hyperhidrosis is the first step any sufferer should take. Among her other suggested solutions is a course of Botox, which is approved by the US Food and Drug Agency as a solution for severe underarm sweating. "It works by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that cause sweating," said Dr Campbell-Chambers, who added: "The results can last six months to a year." She advises anyone suffering from the condition to initially seek medical help, to pinpoint the treatment course most likely to be effective.
