Excessive armpit sweat is a condition that causes the sufferer to experience sweat dripping down their underarms. It can also result in body odor in some cases, causing the sufferer to avoid social interaction. Clothes staining and rotting may also occur. Excessive armpit sweat condition is medically known as axillary hyperhidrosis, which is one form of hyperhidrosis. To know which treatment method you should use, it is important to evaluate what are the causes for your armpit sweating.

Leaving excessive armpit sweat to manifest itself can result in unpleasant odor. The body odor is usually difficult to deal with, even with strong antiperspirants, deodorant or perfume. Besides the negative health effects, it can also affect the sufferer's romance, friendships and daily activities including work. Therefore it is important to treat excessive armpit sweat early before it causes other problems.

Excessive sweating is usually caused by over-stimulation of sweat glands by the automomic nerves. In other cases, it can also be caused by warm clothing or emotional stress.

The treatment methods for excessive armpit sweat include antiperspirants, botox injections, oral medications, iontophoresis and natural remedies. Surgery may be the fastest way to stop excessive armpit sweat, but it could also result in sweating in other areas of the body.

Botox injection is another effective method that usually produces results within two days. The botox chemical injected into your armpit prevents the release of acetycholine, a chemical that causes the sweat glands to produce sweat. It can however, be very expensive and needs to repeated typically every 6 months.

I've personally used a natural remedy treatment method to cure my sweaty armpits in the past. This method requires some persistence, and involves using readily available products at home that are applied every morning and night. You can find out more about his method by following the link below.
