New treatment cures "over-sweating"

Rochester, N.Y. -- Melissa Botkin suffers from hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating.
People with hyperhidrosis may produce five times more sweat than necessary.
“If I'm working out, people make a comment that I sweat a lot,” Botkin said.
Melissa tried prescription strength deodorant, but it didn't work very well for her.
It works by heating the junction between the skin and the fat, and permanently destroys the sweat gland.
It costs $2,400 to $3,000 and will cause some soreness and even temporary numbness under the arms.
