Excessive sweating is common in the tropics. However, occasionally, it may be due to an underlying internal problem such as an overactive thyroid. Excessive sweating in the palms and underarms can be socially embarrassing.
When topical treatments have not worked, injections into the skin of the underarm or palms have been shown to be effective, with results lasting an average of 6 months.
A newer and lasting solution for excessive underarm sweating is miraDry treatment, a non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure that is clinically proven to dramatically reduce sweat and provide lasting results with just 2 treatments.
