Weird but true: Why women are more likely to experience migraines

Why women are more likely to experience migraines

Women account for over 75 per cent of migraine complaints.

According to research published in August 2018 in the Journal Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences, the changing levels of the hormone oestrogen make cells around a key nerve in the head and connected blood vessels more sensitive to migraine triggers.

This increases the risk of migraines for women. Meanwhile, male sex hormone testosterone appears to protect men from migraines.


Botox treatment to the armpits can reduce need for deodorants?

Yes indeed. Botox is commonly used to diminish wrinkles but also it is effective for treatment of focal hyperhidrosis.

This is a condition where there is excessive sweating in a particular part of the body. Botox works by blocking the nerve responsible for activating your sweat glands and this prevents excessive sweating.

This effect is achieved two to seven days after injection and total dryness in about three weeks.

The effect is temporary and lasts four to 14 months where another botox injection may be required.
