Tame Your Sweat Glands with Drysol Solution

Drysol Solution is prescription strength medicine that is applied topically to feet, hands, underarms, or scalp to help control mild hyperhidrosis - excessive sweating, usually without cause. Sweat glands are found over our entire body and number somewhere around three million. They provide the built-in cooling system that keeps our body at about 37°C. It is usually only triggered during physical exertion, warm weather, or in response to embarrassment, nervousness, anger, and fear. Those with hyperhidrosis seem to have overactive eccrine glands that produce sweat more heavily not only in the armpits, but head, feet, and hands as well.

No More Embarrassing Sweat Marks, Wet Hands, or Foot Odor

Normally, when the sweat glands are stimulated, cells secrete a fluid that goes from a portion of the gland up through a duct or opening, and out onto the skin surface. When treated with Drysol Solution as directed, aluminum ions from the active ingredient (Aluminum Chloride) are taken into the cells lining the ducts of your sweat glands on the top layer of your skin. As the aluminum ions are drawn in, water passes with them. With the flow of more water, the cells start to swell which squeezes the ducts shut so sweat is not able to get out.

Drysol Solution Treats Primary and Secondary Hyperhidrosis

We all sweat as a way to keep our bodies from over-heating. The nervous system automatically triggers the sweat glands when the body temperature rises. The moisture is our coolant and is not usually considered embarrassing, unless you have hyperhidrosis. This condition may cause you to worry about anyone that may want to shake your sweaty hand, or might smell your sweaty feet, or see your shirt or blouse with sweat circles under your arms.

Primary hyperhidrosis is heavy sweating with no known medical reason, and secondary hyperhidrosis is caused by a medical issue, such as a tumor, gout, diabetes, or an overactive thyroid gland to name a few. Only a small percentage of those with excessive sweating issues ever seek treatment because many are embarrassed by their condition. Drysol Solution can help reduce your problem of mild hyperhidrosis, but you will need a prescription.

Before You Apply Drysol Solution

If you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding, ask your doctor if Drysol Solution is safe to apply. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have that may interfere with using Drysol Solution and list all OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and vitamin supplements to be certain they will not cause any negative reactions or unintended side effects. Do not use other deodorants or antiperspirants while treating with Drysol Solution. Keep Drysol Solution and other medications stored out of children’s reach.

Proper Use and Recommendations for Drysol Solution

Treatments are usually carried out overnight due to the requirement for covering up the areas where Drysol Solution is applied. You will need a shower cap if you are treating your scalp, latex/plastic gloves for your hands, plastic bags/wrapping for feet, and a shirt/T-shirt for armpits. You should not apply Drysol Solution to any areas of broken, irritated, or freshly shaved skin. Make sure the area you are treating has been washed and thoroughly dried before applying Drysol.
