A possible new method of treating excessive sweating involves blasting the palms of the hands and armpits with liquid Botox at high pressure, avoiding painful injections.
A small study of this experimental technique found it improved sweating from the palms and armpits, but we need larger studies to confirm it works.
The body’s largest organ, the skin, is also designed to remove heat from the body. The most noticeable way is losing heat via evaporating sweat.
It's an eternal struggle when it starts being remotely nice outside – your body begins to actively sabotage you by leaving sweat marks under your armpits, on your back, under your boobs. It seems disgusting, but honestly, sweat is natural and beautiful and essential.
Everyone sweats, obviously, and perspiring is a sign that our bodies are healthily regulating our internal temperatures. But some of us perspire a lot, and it doesn’t take much for us to get there. Hyperhidrosis is the clinical term for abnormally excessive sweating, but there’s also a middle ground of people who find themselves breaking a sweat more easily, and for longer, than most.
Sweat gets a bad rap. We blame it for stink. We accuse it of staining clothes and ruining white tees, and we react in disgust when it appears. But this ill will toward perspiration is misguided. Truth is, we need sweat...

Summer is the best time of the year, because of the beach, the ocean, fresh fruit, beer, sports, and enough Vitamin D to end seasonal depression. But it comes with a cost: humiliating sweat stains. You are not alone. Look at all these sweaters.
There are plenty of good reasons to work up a sweat. Detoxifying your body isn’t one of them.
They say beauty is pain— even if it’s for practical purposes—and I’m not gonna lie, the treatment was no walk in the park.
Of all the animals on Earth, humans are the best at sweating. We’ve got not one, but two sets of sweat glands: one to cool us off, and one that kicks in when we’re anxious.
Sweating is not only entirely and utterly normal, but also necessary, so I wanted to know what gave the liquid such a toxic societal association. I began looking to the past.

I felt like a therapist trying to figure out why my patient began to enjoy dismantling gophers. Something had happened during his formative years, but what?
