Is it ok to get Botox for auxiliary and palms-plantar Hyperhidrosis as the same time?

28 years old male and suffering from OCD under the treatment currently taking Paliris 3 mg BID for 2 months now. Would it affect me or my treatment. And what are the doses good for my case?

Botox Therapeutic can be used to treat several areas of hyperhidrosis at the same office visit.  Your doctor will determine the dosage required.

Botox for excessive sweating

Thank you for your question Sundus.89. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. Off the face it can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Common areas for such treatment include the palms, soles, and underarms. The most common dose is 50 units per side per area, 100 units total. So three areas is usually 300 units. These treatments may be done at the same time. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

It is acceptable to use Botox on multiple areas of the body as effect remains local and does not affect any other areas.

These can all be treated at the same time. There is no risk with this and no interaction with the medications. I use a new technique I have devised to make it faster and more comfortable. It uses mesotherapy needles.

The medication will not affect the use of Botox. there is no way to know the dose you will need. The first thing a doctor does is what is called a starch iodine test to see where and how much is needed. Be sure you see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon
