Excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhydrosis, is caused by the overstimulation of sweat glands by the autonomic nervous system.
Excessive perspiration can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and stressful to deal with. Some sufferers socially withdraw. There are also the high costs associated with clothing wear, repair, and cleaning. Traditionally treatments have included antiperspirants, oral medications and electrical treatments, all with very limited success and some with unpleasant side-effects.
Although surgery for underarm sweating can be effective, it can cause sweating more in other parts of the body including the chest, arms and neck to compensate. There is also a 2-5% failure rate associated with this type of surgery.
