Hyperhidrosis is a disorder characterised by excessive sweating, more than the amount required to regulate body temperature. Primary hyperhidrosis has no discernible cause and may involve the axillae (armpits), palms (hands), soles (feet), face, and groin. The excessive sweating treatment procedure is relatively straightforward. Muscle relaxant treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
