Non-Surgical Treatment Options For Hyperhidrosis
Aside from adopting some changes in your lifestyle, your dermatologist can recommend the following treatments:
You may be prescribed an antiperspirant containing aluminum chloride. This is applied to dry skin before going to bed and then washed off when you wake up.
Prescription creams and wipes
Prescription creams that contain glycopyrrolate may help with excessive sweating located in the face and head.
Some oral medications called anticholinergics can be used. They work by blocking the nerves that trigger sweat glands to produce sweat.
Some medications used for depression can also be used to decrease sweating and at the same time decrease feelings of anxiety.
Botulinum toxin injections
Injections with botulinum toxin or Botox block the nerves that trigger the sweat glands. It will be injected into each of the areas affected and might require several injections to be effective.
