Botox for pubic area sweating

Botox is a very good option for underarm and pubic area sweating.  It typically lasts 3-6 months depending on dosage.  I would recommend that you go visit someone who is board certified and comfortable doing atypical areas such as the pubic region (hands, feet, etc.).  The armpits are probably one of the most popular areas.  Other great treatments such as miraDry and surgery exist for this area as well.

Yes...a very common problem with an easy solution

you're absolutely correct in thinking that botox may provide great relief in both the underarm area and in the groin...people often suffer in silence and assume they have to live with these problems...and relatively few people discuss groin sweating with their doctors...but the treatment works great and may last for a year of so...recommend seeing your doctor as soon as possible and begin enjoying life

Botox fWorks Well for Pubic Area, Groins, Groin Crease, Buttocks

Botox works well in the gluteal folds (below the buttocks), inner groins, groin crease, outside of the genitalia, beltline, mons pubis, etc. A hyperhidrosis expert can guide you through the process and should have some expertise in injecting these areas with Botox.

Yes botox will work

Botox works well in any of those area and will block the nerve stimulation of the sweet glands. Check with your doctor. The result will last at least 3 months

Botox will work for excessive sweating in pubic area

The reason why Botox works for sweat glands is that it stops the transmission of acetylcholine, which is released from a nerve, to turn on the sweat gland. Sweat glands are the same all over the body, so it will work in the pubic area as well.  UPDATE:  see link, this is becoming popular in the Hamptons
