Discussions that mention botox

General Health board

My internist told me recently they could inject "botox" under the arm and stop the sweating. I told him "NO THANK YOU, I am afraid of botox".

Usually it is the sympathetic nervous system acting up that causes too much sweating especially at times of stress.

Like another poster said, it is the body's way of cooling. We have a built in air-conditioning system we seldom think about.
