Permanent solutions to sweat

The Infini can be used for controlling sweat. It will give long term control. The problem is that it's footplate is very small, so it will take significant time to get treated in all those areas. You will probably get compensatory sweating if you treat all those areas too.

Severe over-sweating

Botox can be used to treated excess sweating in many areas, including the area you've mentioned. You should consult with a qualified derm or plastic surgeon who has experience in this condition. Expect a little over 6 months out of every treatment. Most patients who have it are very satisfied in our practice.

Not sure what is available in India but it might be worth the trip to have miraDry performed on your underarms!

Thank you for your question.

Read the ebooks on the link below to guide you.

Sympathectomy is available in India but it may worsen your lower body sweating - compensatory hyperhidrosis.

Botox is very helpful in ALL of the areas you mentioned but is very expensive.

Hi.. thank you for the question... Sorry for how you feel... Im not in India, but i want to guide you... The actual treatment for this type of condition is Botulin Toxin (Botox or Dysport)... Depending in how severe this is it could be treated once in a year...
