In brief: Hyperhidrosis

There are prescription and nonprescription antiperpirants.
I write for topical compounded Glycopyrrolate 3% which is very effective and is used at night. There are oral medications like Robinul (glycopyrrolate) which has a lot of side effects. I would have your doctor write you for compounded Glycopyrrolate 3%.

In brief: Possibly

Surgery is quite successful for appropriate candidates.
While done often by experienced thoracic surgeons (vats), it is chest surgery (major surgery). There are risks and benefits. Appropriate candidates should be selected. This link may help: http://goo.Gl/rsl68 this link to consensus: http://goo.Gl/isann.
