Treatments

  • Prescription Antiperspirant

    As an initial course of treatment, your dermatologist may prescribe an antiperspirant that contains aluminum chloride (Drysol, Xerax AC). You’ll typically apply the antiperspirant before you go to bed, and then wash it off in the morning.

  • Nerve-blocking Medication

    Some oral (taken by mouth) medications block the chemicals that allow certain nerves to communicate with each other, which works to reduce sweating in some people with hyperhidrosis.

  • Antidepressant Medication

    Some oral medications typically prescribed for depression also decrease sweating. What’s more, anxiety can worsen sweating, so these types of medication also work to reduce episodes of anxiety.

  • Botulinum Toxin Injections

    Injections of botulinum toxin (Botox) can help reduce sweating by blocking the nerves that trigger your sweat glands. The effects of each treatment lasts six to 12 months, so you’ll need to come in for subsequent treatments.
