    Botox, the popular injectable drug used to treat facial wrinkles, also does wonders for sweaty
    armpits, scientists have found.

    Researchers said the same chemical that tells facial muscles to freeze when injected into the skin
    also instructs sweat glands to stop functioning. They discovered that people who suffer from
    sweating so severely that it limits their daily activities can be helped with just one or two
    injections a year.
