Being sick of our illness is no longer so stigmatizing. Many people understand that there is nothing to control. In addition, today there are many treatments that can eliminate the whole problem in just a few hours. Thanks to the research on the disease, treatment is now so simple that it can be carried out at dental clinics. So suddenly, a specialist is not required to get rid of sweating due to our illness.

I live in Oslo and there are about 20 different qualified dental clinics within reach of where I live. I myself go to a dentist in the room. I found this by searching for dentists in Oslo and found the Rommen Tannlegesenter which also had time that week. They were very friendly and professional. During the phone call, they built my trust and insured that the treatment is something they do two, three times a week. Many people usually get there at the same time to fix their teeth or bleach their teeth and also receive this treatment when they are still under anesthesia.

As I said, I was quite close to it for a while, and I have previously told my dentist fear, but this time it was still okay. I would not do the treatment for the teeth, but for my sweating.

When I got there they were still incredibly professional. They took me very quickly to their own room when they realized that I was nervous. Then I had to take off my clothes and put on a patient gown, one that has it completely open there behind. Pretty soon they picked me up and took me to the treatment room where I lay on my back on a bed. Then I got anesthesia. “Count down from 10”.

I do not remember more than I counted at seven, then I was gone. When I woke up, a nurse stood over me telling me everything went well. I was a little whining yet so I asked what “good” really means. She replied that the sweat I experienced earlier will now be gone.

What they do is inject botox into the sweat pads to block the signals sent to the brain. It prevents glands from working overtime and thus avoids sweating. This is not a one-time treatment, so it’s important to find a clinic where you are comfortable.

In any case, I have found right and will go back.
