Everyone has a unique sweat pattern, especially for the armpit areas. Sweat glands can extend beyond the normal area of armpit sweating, whilst some patients will have a greater number of sweat glands concentrated in a certain area. Our Team of Specialists may use a variety of tests to determine the sweat area. The most common test with the highest accuracy rate is called the starch iodine test. This can accurately determine the area of maximal armpit sweating.
