Unpleasant Body Odour – Fighting Underarm Sweat
Normal sweating is a physiological process in which the body regulates its temperature.
Excessive sweating, for example in the armpit no longer has any function and is very unpleasant. This ranges from odour nuisance to sweat running down to permanent spots in clothing that are difficult to hide.
There are various ways of tackling underarm perspiration:
Aluminium-containing deodorants: They work more or less for a short time but are suspected of being harmful.
Botox: Botox blocks sweat production. Botulinum toxin is injected directly into the sweat glands in the armpit. The effect is reliable and lasts for about four months, If the patient does not want surgery, we can also offer this type of treatment.
The suction of the sweat glands: Cutting through the sympathetic nerve: Here the doctor cuts through the nerve that controls sweat production and all other automatic, autonomous controls for the arm and hand. This requires a surgical intervention, an operation, from the thoracic cavity, the thorax, this is offered in thoracic surgical clinics by an appropriate specialist.
How can this be Influenced?
Methods of relaxation and stress reduction certainly help to reduce the emotional cause of sweating. Whether this is enough, everyone must test it for themselves.
Aim of the Treatment of Sweat Gland Aspiration
We want to eliminate the excess of sweating. The “normal”, i.e. the physiological sweating that does not lead to the symptoms mentioned above, may remain, but does not have to remain. It is also possible to tackle the& embarrassment of sweating completely.
