May need presciption: You should see your doctor. There is a prescription antiperspirant that may be helpful to you. However, you should discuss with your doctor; they may want to make sure there is no underlying hormone/endocrine problem.

If there is no underlying medical problem, BOTOX is very effective in treating excessive underarm sweating.
