Is there a way to remove sweat glands having diagnosed with Hyperhidrosis?

Hi Doctor, I am 20 years old and have a condition called hyperhidrosis, and main areas of sweat are my hands and feet. I have tried all possible solutions but failed. I would love to do the surgery to remove those sweat glands, but it is expensive, is there any other form of help?

Hi,

I have gone through your query and you can go for botulinum toxin (botox) injections on palms and soles.
It will help your hyperhidrosis.
You need to go for sitting every 4-6 months.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
