Hyperhidrosis can either be generalized or localized to specific parts of the body.
For example Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most popular and most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of your sweat glands.
Any part of the body may be affected. When excessive sweating is localized we refer to it as primary or focal hyperhidrosis. Generalized or secondary hyperhidrosis usually involves the body as a whole and is the result of an underlying condition.
Hyperhidrosis can also be classified depending by onset, either congenital or acquired. Primary or focal hyperhidrosis is found to start during adolescence or even before and seems to be inherited as an autosomal dominant genetic trait. Primary or focal hyperhidrosis must be distinguished from secondary, which can start at any point in life.
Injection of a small amount of Botulinum Toxin, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium of clostridium, into the specific muscle causes relaxation of that muscle. This result in relaxation of like muscle and improvement of axillary sweating (hyperhidrosis).
