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 stimulation (electricity) are some options. More recent in the news is microwave armpit treatments.
