  • Now, we have a safer, more effective therapy in the form of Botox injections into the armpits. 
  • Before being treated for sweating under the arms, patients should be evaluated for other potential causes of the problem, such as hyperthyroidism, to avoid symptomatic treatment of hyperhidrosis with Botox without addressing a potentially serious underlying disease which requires other forms of treatment. 
  • Indicated for people who sweat as a result of anxiety find that the problem becomes exacerbated in stressful situations and can result in embarrassment and an attempt to avoid those situations which provoke profuse sweating. 
  • The injections work by paralyzing or shutting off the sweat glands. 
  • The most common adverse events following treatment (occurring in 3% to 10% of patients) included injection site pain and hemorrhage, sweating in other parts of the body, flu-like symptoms, headache, fever, itching, and anxiety.
  • If nothing else works the patient might want to consider ETS.
    Please note that in most cases Doctors do not recommend endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) for excessive underarm sweating. 

    While ETS is perhaps the most commonly discussed, (as well as criticized) surgery for hyperhidrosis, there are other, far less risky, and far more predictable, options for people who suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms.
    As a last resort Dr. Gary refers patients to Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General because it has one of the best centers for endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) for excessive underarm sweating in the world.
    The Hyperhidrosis Surgery Service, part of the Mass General Division of Thoracic Surgery, includes board-certified thoracic surgeons who have a tremendous amount of experience treating hyperhidrosis surgically.

    Although surgery for hyperhidrosis is relatively simple, as with all operations, it still carries some risk. At Mass General, patients undergo the procedure at a premier hospital that provides safe, high-quality care
