Our Refer a Friend program in new. If you know someone who has an excessive sweating condition why not refer them to the Dry Pharmacist. He or she will likely find something that will provide relief and you will get a rebate on your next purchase for doing so.
It's pretty simple. Provide your name and email address as well as your friend's name and home address. Once they make a purchase your rebate is activated. The rebate can then be applied on your next purchase. No worries, the rebate does not expire. It remains valid until your next purchase.

Two is better than One.
Sounds pretty simple on the surface but often forgotten when treating hyperhidrosis - two is better then one. Individuals often tend to try something and move on if results are inadequate.That's certainly the case with the treatment of hyperhidrosis. People mistakenly try a treatment and discontinue if the response is deemed a failure. The truth is, most treatments provide some sort of partial response and individuals seek other forms of treatment when this occurs. Most of the time, this partial response can become a successful treatment if it is complemented with another or an additional treatment. Read on...click image below.

In my usual quest to find the most current information on focal hyperhidrosis, I am came across a medical journal review article* that emphasized the importance of proper use. I couldn't help but think that some people are probably not get maximum benefit from their topical antiperspirants because of suboptimal use. Improper use is also a principal source of skin irritation which can also lead to poor results.
If you are going to remember anything, keep the following key aspects in mind: 1) aluminum chloride hexahydrate products such as DryDerm should be left on the skin for 6 to 8 hours to be effective; 2) product should be applied to skin that remains dry for that period of time, for example, at nighttime during sleeping hours. Applied to a damp region will affect its efficacy in a negative manner and increase the likelihood of skin irritation. Though it is tempting to apply product in the morning, this is discouraged. The inevitable sweating that occurs during the day will adversely affect product efficacy; 3) the treated region should be washed off in the morning to avoid irritation from product that remains on the skin for an extended period of time; 4) irritation can usually be successfully treated with hydrocortisone 1% cream (available over or behind the counter in pharmacies) for up to 2 weeks. If the region has to be shaved occasionally, wait 24 to 48 hours before reapplying product to avoid possible irritation. See our Treatment DOs and DON'Ts to get the most from your treatment. 

Keep in mind that other treatment options such as Botox or iontophoresis can be complemented by topical products such as DryDerm. Individuals often tend to try different options witout thinking that they can actually be used together for added benefit. For more information about complementary treatment see our Resistant Palmoplantar Hyperihidrosis page.

Admittedly, we don't exactly have the most kid friendly site, we decided to create a page for the little fellas, or the younger teenager. Given how tech savvy the kids are these days we figured some younger folks might be doing some research about excessive sweating on their own. In the event that they land on our children's page, the provided information will give them some insight and encourage them to seek help.

Hey folks...if you think you have a child with an excessive sweating condition, don't ignore it. Make sure there is no underlying condition causing the sweating. If a medical problem has been ruled out, be sure to take action...excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be socially crippling at a young age. It can be particularly ostricizing and can have a very detrimental effect on your child's confidence and sense of self.
