Find experienced MD: In a city, there is usually a doctor who has an interest in, and many patients with, excessively sweaty armpits, hands, and feet. The specialist can try various treatments with a patient to see what works best. Drysol (strong antiperspirant), beta-blocker medications, Botox injections, and galvanic electric stimulation are some options. More recently in the news was microwave armpit treatment.
