Botox mot svette hos barn og ungdommer

A study from 2014 looked at quality of life after treatment of localized sweating problems (hyperhidrosis) in children and teens. Overall 37 patients were included in the study and treated with Botox against perspiration on hands or underarms. Patients had a good effect against perspiration, and a marked reduction in tendency to isolate themselves to hide plague. Explore Erne concludes that Botox against perspiration in this patient group can significantly improve quality of life.
