Blue sweat - Chromehydrosis / chromehidrosis

Hi,

Can anyone help shed any light on the above problems? My mother has been suffering from this for the past few months and it is proving difficult to find much information at all, especially no reasons as to why it might have started and if there is anything that can cure it. She had recently been taking diuretics and we wonder if that might have been the cause.

Does anyone know where to go for more info, or know of anyone that has had this? She doesn't really want to go down the botox route!

Thanks

Has she tried capsaicin? That's the usual first treatment with botox being second. A quick search showed quite a few articles which indicate it's a benign condition and can be caused my exposure to some agent. Have you tried to figure that out? have you tried stopping the diuretic?
