When you grow up having hyperhidrosis, you end up learning lots of ways to hide your excessive sweating--which often means missing out on the fun things in life. It's time to stop hiding and start healing.

Botox everywhere...but who can afford it?
An NBC News Blog recently published an article about various uses for Botox, including treatment of excessive sweat. A woman interviewed for the article had Botox injected in her fingers and on her palms, and the resulting dryness enabled her to get fingerprinted without smearing the ink. Here is a video of such a procedure. I have to admit that I can barely watch it. It looks VERY painful. Some of the people who commented said that they had palmar Botox but it didn't work. Has anyone tried it? If so, please let us know how much it cost, if it worked (and, if so, for how long), and if it was painful.
