If you experience hyperhidrosis, you know that it can cause you a great deal of irritation and embarrassment. We can work with you to find an approach for treating your specific symptoms. One of the first options your doctor may suggest for you is the use of a strong antiperspirant such as Drysol.

Antiperspirants, containing 10 percent to 19 percent aluminum chloride hexahydrate, can help you control your sweating. If this is not sufficient, your doctor may prescribe an antiperspirant containing up to 25 percent of aluminum chloride, which is applied nightly onto the affected areas.

Your doctor may also recommend deodorants, which do not prevent sweating, but are helpful in reducing body odor.
