I had my sweat glands removed from my armpits when I was 17 years old, as I was sweating excessivly and it was causing me much embarrassment. When I had it done, the doctor informed me that they would probably grow back at some point.
Well, it's now 30 years later, I am 47, and they are back!! When I mentioned it to one of my friends, they said that there are now botox injections for the same thing, instead of having surgery to remove them again.
Has anyone heard of this?? Could there be a simpler solution?

P.S.--i have tried mitchum, and it doesn't work.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Yes, botox injection is needed for its definite treatment.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
