Why am I sweating so much, and what can I do about it?

I seem to be sweating a lot more than other people, especially during the night-time. My girlfriend doesn't have this problem, so it's not a matter of room temperature. Is this something that could be wrong with my body? Maybe it's because I'm a bit overweight, and I don't really do much exercise.

Over sweating also called hyperhidrosis needs an evaluation by a primary care physician or Dermatologist.  This will see if there are any medical concerns causing your condition.  Sometimes hormones, diabetes or even tumor can use hyperhidrosis.

Once you have been cleared as a serious form of hyperhidrosis, you can have various treatment options such as MiraDry procedure, iontophoresis, glycopyrronium towelettes, Botox injections or just prescription strength antiperspirant.

We offer Botox treatments for hyperhidrosis.  Patients seem to like it a lot and have results for upto 6 months.  Cost about $1,000
