I often sweat profusely under my arms. It never has a strong odor but is embarassing. Other than things such as indelitox or botox, what can I do?

In brief: Many ways
Besides botox, there is also drionic iontophoresis and drysol.
As dr. Balogun mentioned, laser can be used. Sometimes a beta blocker can help too.

In brief: Hyperhydrosis
Sounds like you have hyperhydrosis? There are some topical medications you can try.
Ask your doctor. There are also some surgical options that can disrupt the nerve pathways that control sweating. It's a difficult condition to manage, so hang in there!
