"Whilst normal sweating regulates body temperature, excessive sweating can be chronically embarrassing," said Nicky Naylor, the Harley Medical Group's Botox specialist. "Sufferers can start avoiding social situations. Many patients feel that not having to worry about getting uncomfortably sweaty is a big boost to their confidence, especially during summer."
