End for sweaty armpits



excerpt independent.co.uk No sweat - just take a Botox jab By Flora Stubbs 08 February 2004

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.
