See dietitian: Possibly a dietitian can help you lose weight. Botox can be used for excess sweating.

Sweating: Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be treated by your dermatologist. Treatments vary from topical solutions that block the sweat duct, to iontophoresis to Botox injections. Botox is very effective because it stops the sweating for up to 4 to 6 months but it is an expensive treatment. It may be cheaper for some people who have to replace their suits often because of excessive perspiration.
