In brief: Hyperhidrosis

Most people start with OTC topical antiperspirants, move on to prescription topicals (21% Aluminum chloride), oral anticholinergic agents, Botox injection.
For more permanent options, consider suction curetttage, miraDry or ThermiRF. We perform all of these procedures in our Center for Excessive Sweating, established in 1999.

In brief: Start with OTC

I would start with otc clinical strength antiperspirants.
Your dermatologist may provide prescription drysol or aluminum chloride as well. Depending on insurance, botulinum toxin has been effective. Definitive long term treatment can be accomplished with iontophoresis . More info on mira dry http://www.Miradry.Com/.
