I sweat profusely in my hands and feet, can anyone tell me how to stop or control it? The dr. Gave me hypercare which didn't really work.

In brief: Botox
I've found Botox to work rather well in most patients with this problem. This involves making tiny injections into the involved areas, which generally takes about 15 minutes.
I'd suggest starting with your feet and/or non-dominant hand to see how it works. You can find addl info at http://www.Skin-vein.Com/cosmetic-dermatology/botox-and-dysport/botox-for-excessive-sweating.

Drysol (aluminum chloride) can help but can be irritating. A very good question. Drionic also can be helpful. Iontophoresis is also very helpful. Botox also works well but is expensive, will wear off in a few months and can be a painful process. Consulting with a physician used to treating hyperhidrosis will determine what's the next best option for you.

In brief: Maxim or Drionic
My favorites are maxim, an otc liquid applied at bedtime, and drionic, a device used every 3 months or so.
Both are available online - google them. If those fail, there are prescription medications, but like all meds they have side effects, so i always try the above first. (i have no financial interest in any product i mention on this site.).

In brief: Botox injections
The cause of sweating is often not found or concerning and the problem is often mitigated with injections of botox.
