treatment for hyperhydrosis
Over-the-counter antiperspirants: Home remedies like these are usually tried first because they are readily available. Antiperspirants containing aluminum chloride (for example, Certain-Dri) may be more effective when other antiperspirants have failed. So-called "natural" antiperspirants are often not very helpful.
Prescription-strength antiperspirants: those containing aluminum chloride hexahydrate
Iontophoresis: a device which passes direct electricity through the skin using tap water
Microwave destruction: a device destroys the sweat glands purportedly causing minimal damage to other tissues
Oral medications: from the group of medications known as anticholinergics, which reduce sweating
Botox (botulinum toxin): approved in the U.S. by the FDA for treating excessive axillary (underarm) sweating
Surgery: cervical sympathectomy, or interruption of certain nerve pathways, as a last resort
Aluminum chloride hexahydrate
When regular antiperspirants fail, as they often do, to remedy hyperhidrosis, most doctors start by recommending aluminum chloride hexahydrate (Drysol, various generics), a prescription-strength version of aluminum chloride. It is applied just before bedtime seven to 10 nights in a row, then roughly once a week as a maintenance medication. The aluminum salts in this preparation collect in the sweat ducts and block them. Over time, the excessive perspiration may diminish to such an extent that no further treatment is needed. This method works reasonably well for many patients whose problem is excessive underarm sweating, but it's not satisfactory for most of those with palm and sole sweating.

The main side effect with aluminum chloride is irritation, which can sometimes, but not always, be overcome by reducing the frequency of use or applying anti-inflammatory medications such as lotions containing hydrocortisone.

microwave destruction can be done.
