Several treatment options currently exist for excessive sweating:
- Prescription antiperspirants are often the first recommended line of defense against hyperhidrosis, to be applied at bedtime.
- Oral medications are sometimes prescribed to block the nerves. This option is not always pursued, as it may cause undesired side effects.
- Botox injections may be administered to block the nerves responsible for excessive underarm sweating; for best results, these injections need to be repeated regularly. In addition, this treatment option is not always covered by insurance, making it expensive.
- Surgery may be performed to remove the sweat glands. As with all surgical procedures, this procedure carries a some risk of complications.
