Hello all, we have been talking and helping a young Gentleman who is currently making a new Iontophoresis machine. This could mean a better future for us all, less suffering from our dreaded Hyperhidrosis. If you can please take a few minutes out of your day to fill out the on-line survey.
Remember….our little voices can make ONE BIG ONE and help raise the awareness on living with this skin disease.
Let me introduce you to a wonderful young man,
Hello, My Name is Mark Gamwell and I thank you for this opportunity,
I am a fourth year Product Design student at Loughborough University. As part of my final year I must undertake an in-depth design project.
After careful thought and consideration, my choice of final year project has been greatly influenced by the experience of one of my friends who has suffered for several years from hyperhidrosis. Having been present at one of their iontophoreses treatments at an NHS hospital, I thought that the equipment used could have been designed in a more user friendly manner; however the treatment was very effective and relieved their symptoms greatly.
I am going to design and develop an iontophoreses machine that would be primarily used by people at home as well as in hospitals. I am now looking to conduct in-depth user research to help me develop a comfortable and user focused product.
My main areas of development from my initial research will be:
•User comfort during use.
•User’s ability to control while treating their hands.
•How information is displayed and user interaction.
•Allow for easier storage.
•Reduce cost whilst providing a quality product.
To ensure that I can design a product that addresses real user needs and desires, I need to gain first hand research from people who own and use these machines in their everyday life.
I want to find out what you like and enjoy about the machine you use, what you dislike and what really annoys you when using it.
The more information I can gather on how everyone interacts and uses their machine, the better understanding of what it is that really needs to be addressed in my redesign.
I really hope that with lots of support I can design a product that will be able to make a real difference and possibly allow me to approach the current manufacturers with a new and innovative idea that could possibly become a manufactured product that will go on sale.

Want to thank my dearest friend for keeping us in the loop of new things for Hyperhidosis, your a gem
NEW ANTIPERSPIRANT HYDROGEL WITH ACETYLCHOLINE BLOCKING
MECHANISM: FIRST CLINICAL REPORT
INTRODUCTION AND DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW ANTIPERSPIRANT GEL
A new antiperspirant hydrogel has been projected and discovered based on an innovative
mechanism of action consisting on acetylcholine release partial blocking. This biochemical
mechanism is the main involved in eccrine sweat glands secretion and is the main issue to solve in
the patients suffering of hyperhidrosis. Generally patients suffering of moderate to severe grade
hyperhidrosis undergo to botulinum toxin sessions properly to block acetylcholine release and so
reduce sweating for several months and furthermore apply day by day very high percentage of
Aluminum chloride topical products to reduce excessive sweating. Botulinum Toxin is very
effective because blocks specifically proteins which induce acetylcholine release and so reduce
dramatically eccrine glands secretion; unfortunately injection of botulinum toxin is a strict specialist
medical practice and is not free from side effects, contraindications, allergic events and so on. Not
all the patients could be enrolled to apply botulinum toxin and many times these patients, impatient
to solve their embarrassing condition, provide to buy this drug from not legal channels and accept
to be treated from not specialized and skilled people. Furthermore, in the cosmetic landscape,
there’s only aluminum chloride products capable to produce acceptable results, but they are not free
from side effects as adenitis and skin irritations if applied every day.
This new cosmetic approach to hyperhidrosis has the main purpose to give an important opportunity
to all the patients suffering of hyperhidrosis allowing them to treat this condition with the same
mechanism of action of botulinum toxin, but without inject anything and simply applying a pleasant
and light hydrogel in the axilla, face, hands and forehead.
This gel contains an association of natural substances capable to reduce acetylcholine release in the
proximity of eccrine glands reducing contextually their secretion, exactly as botulinum toxin, but in
a very natural and not invasive way.
PRELIMINARY CLINICAL REPORT
20 patients suffering of moderate to severe grade hyperhydrosis have been tested under the
supervision of specialized dermatologists in the San Gallicano Hospital Dermatology Department in
These patients began application of this new gel (SNARE BLOCK), after two weeks from the
interruption of application of any other product for hyperhidrosis (aluminum chloride, long lasting
antiperspirant products etc.): they only applied short lasting deodorants and a common hygiene
These patients were educated to apply SNARE BLOCK two times a day (morning and night) in the
affected area taking care to induce a complete absorption of the gel in the skin area involved with a
light massage. No other products for hyperhydrosis were applied with the exception of common
deodorants with no antiperspirant molecules inside.
These patients came back to the clinic once a week to compile a clinical report under supervision of
a dermatologist in charge to carry out the clinical evaluation.
The parameters considered were:
- Grade of subjective satisfaction;
- Grade of pleasantness of application;
- Indication of “sweat reduction grade” in a graduated scale;
- Fast working effect grade;
- Objective clinical examination;
At the end of the 4 weeks, 18 patients declared to be:
- quite satisfied to highly satisfied of the efficacy of the product indicating a grade of “sweat
reduction” ranging from 6 to 8 in a graduated scale ranging from 0 for no effects to 10 for complete
satisfaction. 1 patient interrupted after only 2 weeks declaring that the product didn’t work and
another one interrupted after 3 weeks with no explanations;
- in a scale ranging from 0 to 10 for the “sweat reduction” parameter grade 2 patients reported a
score of 8 (high grade of reduction), 13 patients reported a score of 7 (moderate-high grade of
reduction); 3 patients reported a score of 4-5 (moderate grade of reduction);
- 16 patients declared to be satisfied in terms of pleasantness in a scale reporting these parameters: 2
patients not satisfied (bad sensorial effect in the skin), 7 patients moderately satisfied (acceptable
sensorial effect, but not very nice), 9 very satisfied (very good skin effect and nice to apply);
- 18 patients declared a quite slow working effect onset: 7 patients declared to feel first working
effect in sweating only after 15 days from the first application and the best effect after 18-20 days.
Please join us in our friendly forum on more about this new and exciting product, feel free to leave your questions and comments.

Excessive Sweating Targeted by New Procedure
Everyone sweats but for some people the problem is so severe that they do not even want to leave their homes.
“It’s really emotional. It’s stressful,” said Briana Bernyk, who suffers from sweating so severely that she even skipped her high school prom.
“I didn’t want to go through the whole hassle of picking out a dress, so I blew it off,” she told “Good Morning America.”
Bernyk, 20, of Massachusetts, sweats so profusely under her armpits that she often has to throw shirts away after one use and wears layers to better protect herself. She also uses just one color in her wardrobe, black, in order to camouflage her ailment.
“From sweatshirts to fancy shirts, everything I have is black,” she said.
After trying topical solutions and even Botox to help lighten her sweating, Bernyk turned to what is being heralded as the latest fix for underarm sweating, a procedure known as miraDry.
“It’s not that they don’t sweat at all. They just sweat like a normal person,” said Dr. Michael Kaminer, a Boston-based cosmetic surgeon and the managing partner of SkinCare Physicians who performed the procedure on Bernyk, said of the results.
The nonsurgical procedure became available to patients in January after being approved by the Food and Drug Administration last year. While the patient’s armpit is placed under local anesthesia, microwave energy is used to melt the as many as 33,000 sweat glands in the armpits to stop the patient’s hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excessive sweating.
The company behind the procedure, Miramar Labs Inc. in Sunnyvale, Calif., says, on average, the overall volume of sweat is reduced by an average of 82 percent and lasts for nearly one year, according to its website.
Some medical experts say they are waiting for longer-term, independent data on the procedure, which can cost between $2,500 and $3,000 for two sessions and is not covered by insurance.
For Bernyk and other patients, the results speak for themselves.
“Now it’s just exciting to go out. I can wear what I want,” she said. “Before I was nervous about going out…uncomfortable and always in a cover up….[Now] I can hold them [my arms] on my hips and I can fix my hair in public.”Tags: armpit, axillar, axillary, excessive sweating, help, hyperhidrosis, miradry, non-invasive, non-surgical, procedure, treatment, underarm

What does underarm sweat have to do with armpit acne?
Not a topic for everyday casual conversation. More often than not, this part of our bodies is a cause of insecurity—despite what the deodorant commercials show, most of us probably wouldn’t dare lift our underarms into the air so unselfconsciously particularly on a hot day in public. It’s also a source of inconvenience for women, as most of our fashion choices (sleeveless, cap sleeves, or long sleeves?) end up hinging on the state of our armpits. Of all the body parts we possess, this is one of those parts that tend to make us stressed out in an already-stressed out life.
Maintaining the hygiene of our underarms is as important as maintaining the hygiene for the rest of our bodies, as it is of the most sensitive parts. But many of us, in the hastiest of our lifestyles, usually focus on only two grooming aspects—keeping our underarms hair-free (especially for women), and keeping them from smelling. So we shave, spray, and use roll-ons with abandon, but fail to realize that improper care can cause skin trouble to our armpits.
Armpit acne is caused by a myriad of things. Certain fabrics and underarm products can irritate the skin. Improper shaving can result in “razor bumps”. But most commonly, armpit acne is caused, like the pimples on our faces, by the clogging of the pores with oil and bacteria. When left untreated, armpit acne can worsen and turn into serious skin problems.
Damp armpits don’t just increase the chances of body odor, but also traps bacteria. Combined with dirt from the air and the oils our bodies naturally possess, the skin becomes inflamed and becomes a pimple. These pimples can become painful, and are often filled with pus.
Inability to control underarm sweating when you’ve developed one of these can lead to the pimple sticking around for a very long time, as the sweat continues to feed bacteria into the wound. Thus, the sweat glands in your underarm may end up become inflamed and infected. To prevent this, it is important to always keep our armpits clean and dry by using powders, or by regularly wiping sweat away. Many people would opt for antiperspirants, but this can end up worsening things as antiperspirants themselves clog pores to keep sweat from coming out. Badly clogged armpits can result in the inflammation of the sweat glands causing abscesses, which are infections caused by staph bacteria and require medical attention in order to heal.
Damp armpits also cause skin rashes on hot, humid days. Known as heat rashes, these are red, itchy rashes caused by the heat and the material of your clothing. Sometimes, the rashes develop whiteheads. On such days, you’ll want to wear light, airy fabrics that enable the breeze to pass through your clothes easily, eliminating sweat and odor constantly. You also want to avoid shaving, as improper shaving can cause hair follicles to be trapped under the skin causing irritation.
Armpit acne can be treated by bathing thoroughly and regularly, using creams and soaps containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide that dry out pimples and pus. It is important to dry your underarms properly after showering to prevent dampness. Pimple creams created for facial use can be used safely on underarms. As these dry out even unaffected skin, always use a non-greasy moisturizing lotion afterwards. Cutting down on greasy food is also advisable in order to prevent overproduction of oil in our systems. When using deodorants, it’s best to go for a hypoallergenic one without fragrances that can further irritate the skin. When armpit acne is severe, though, do not hesitate to approach your dermatologist, who can provide prescription medicines suiting your current needs.
We don’t have to get to that point, though. Maintaining proper hygiene can keep us from developing armpit acne in the first place. Other additional tips for proper underarm care include exfoliating occasionally, using light scrubs in order to remove dead skin cells and lingering dirt. A regular routine of underarm hair removal through methods like waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams is also advised in order to prevent BO. With a little effort and dedication, your underarms don’t have to be your enemy anymore.

Clothing for Excessive Sweating
Sweating is something that the body does naturally all the time. Even when it is cold, the human body perspires to keep its temperature regulated. However, there are people who have excessive sweating or to give it its official name – hyperhidrosis.
Sometimes excessive sweating is a medical condition that a doctor can treat. This usually means the condition will improve. During this time, a person may feel embarrassed, or feel self-conscious about their appearance. They do not want people to see perspiration marks on their clothing. Being anxious about sweating and others seeing the perspiration, can lead to more incidences of heavy sweating. People often become depressed and isolate themselves from others, to hide the excessive sweating.
If people with this issue do go out, they will often try to hide the sweating by wearing loose fitting clothing regardless of fashion trends and looks. Shopping for clothes becomes a mission to find clothes that will not make it obvious that they are sweating rather than if a person actually likes the clothing.
There are clothing fabrics and colors that will prevent others from noticing the excess sweating. A person will feel more confident if they have knowledge of the type of fabrics that will work best for them. In addition, sweating can create body odour, so choosing the proper fabric can reduce the smell of perspiring. Using anti-perspirants and frequent bathing is imperative for people with excessive sweating. The first items of clothing we put on each morning are undergarments. While generally, no one else will see them, the fabric of undergarments can help prevent, or conceal excessive perspiration. Choose cotton fabrics as these will allow perspiration to evaporate more rapidly.
Women and men can also purchase speciality products that are made for hyperhidrosis. Dress shields, or underarm shields, can be worn in the armpit area to absorb perspiration. They are available in disposable and washable formats for men and women. Camisoles or undershirts in breathable cotton, bamboo or other natural fabrics can also absorb sweat. People must experiment with layering, and find what works the best for them. Socks are now manufactured by many companies in fabric that has wicking action. Wicking action means it carries the sweat away from the skin, allowing the perspiration to evaporate.
There are also clothing items in athletic wear, which provide wicking. These can often be worn as undergarments, or for everyday wear. Colour choice in clothing is also important to hide perspiration. Darker colours do not show sweat marks as much as lighter colours. Patterned fabric prevents perspiration marks from being as apparent. Wearing a jacket, bolero, sweater of other layering garment can prevent others from seeing armpit stains. While shopping for clothing, bring along a water bottle. Sprinkle a tiny amount of water on the clothing item to see how the moisture reacts on the fabric.
There is help out there so don’t let hyperhidrosis get in the way of loving and living your life.

Are Sweaty Palms Affecting Your Self Esteem? Here are 6 Ways to Boost Your Confidence
Palm sweating is a horrible problem. Even if it isn’t a serious medical condition, it can still totally disrupt your day-to-day living. You can’t go out on dates because you’re too afraid that he or she will want to hold hands. You can’t go to parties, clubs, or church because you don’t want to shake hands with anybody. It’s an insecurity that seems to never completely go away. It just sort of lingers in the back of your mind all the time.
In other words, sweaty palms can really affect your self esteem. It can cause social phobia.
What you need to do is STOP BEING AFRAID! Being afraid will only make the problem worse!
You CAN keep your hands dry. You CAN improve your self esteem!
Take the first step towards a more confident you with these 6 tips.
1. Diet, Diet, Diet. Drink tons of water. Doing so will keep your internal body temperature down. When your body is cool, you won’t sweat as much. You won’t be on as edge as much. Stay away from coffee and alcohol. Don’t eat a lot of unhealthy foods, as they will lead to more sweat.
People who eat healthy diets can usually elimate one cause of excessive sweating – obesity . They also tend to have more self confidence which can generally minimize nervous sweating.
2. Exercise daily! Again, exercising will give you higher self esteem. Feel sexier in as little as a month and start feeling more confident about your appearance. Plus, the more you exercise, the healthier your metabolism will become. Depending on the degree of your excessive palm sweating this can make a difference in the amount of sweat you produce.
3. Just relax! Sometimes this sounds easier than it actually is. We all have busy lives. If you’re a naturally nervous person, then it’s no wonder that you sweat all the time. Nervous people tend to have self esteem issues as well and this can create a chain reaction that causes anxiety induced sweating.
There are so many things you can do to relax yourself and to stay calm. If there’s something or someone at work or school who’s causing you some stress, either avoid them as much as you can or learn to not let them bother you so much.
Keep repeating to yourself over and over “I am fine. Everything is okay. It’s unimportant to me what anybody else says or thinks about me. All that matters is that I know that I’m a great person.”
Learn some deep breathing techniques. You’ll be surprised at how dry your hands will be if you’re able to stay relaxed.
4. Drink tomato juice and/or acai berry juice every day. Yup. Both tomato juice and acai berry juice can actually prevent hand sweating. Not only can you drink them, but you can soak your hands in them as well. Sure, it might seem kinda gross, but it’s very helpful.
Tomatoes and acai berries have antioxidant properties. They will destroy the germs and bacteria on your hands better than a lot of soaps. Drink at least one cup of your preferred juice a day, or soak your hands in it every morning for about 30 minutes if you prefer.
5. Did you know that charcoal can prevent sweating? Not many people know this, but activated charcoal is one of the best remedies for well… anything! It’s a detoxifier and it works very well for those with excessive sweating problems.
Take an activated charcoal supplement on an empty stomach twice a day. Not only will it prevent sweating, it will also clear your skin up and leave it clean and supple.
6. Try an alternative treatment such as aromatherapy, acupuncture, or herbs! I know, some people don’t believe that these alternative treatments really work. But if you give them a try, you might be surprised.
For aromatherapy, try essential oils such as lavender, lemon, peppermint, and cypress oil.
Herbal remedies include witch hazel, ground ivy, aloe vera, basil, and valerian. Not all of these can be taken orally. Just topically apply them to your hands. Let them dry for a few minutes and then rinse them off. The basil and valerian can also help reduce stress.
An acupuncturist can treat both sweaty palms and stress. If you live near an acupuncturist, schedule a meeting to see if there is anything they can do to help you.
Here’s a bonus tip: THINK POSITIVE! You can improve your self esteem if you learn how to think positive. Just visualize yourself with dry, clean hands. Positive thinking, when combined with the above tips, will enable you to keep your hands dry AND feel better about yourself!

I thought I would approach this subject as most of us seem to be complaining about what to wear, what if I sweat. We all have the, “What If’s?”
I know I am, and as time is getting closer to Thanksgiving, Christmas office parties, dinners, dances, Ball’s, schools plays, shopping we all tend to suffer from pre-festivity panic.
We tend to panic and make ourselves worse than what we began. If we just looked at this simply we could erase a lot of our, “What If’s”
If you are like me and my life has been so busy this year has flown and were here again! I am currently getting ready to move and I have a big ball approaching. I have tried to get out of it but looks like I am going to have to attend. I have been listening to the other wife’s and their excitement on dresses and hair do’s and such and I wish or I pray I could also get as excited as them and wear the lovely clothing. But in reality I can’t!
I have thought about going back on my oral medication for a few weeks but I am still battling a sinus infection and will probably not help matters right now.
Can you join me in making a list on what we should do and what we should not do? Here are some of my sugestions.
If daytime office lunch, dress in layers and battle your way like a rugby player, American Football player, to get that seat next to the window, and as the lunch begins and you feel your sweating arrive, take off your layers, ask to open up the window and if your a woman blame it on a hot flash…yes we do have an advantage on that one, sorry Gentlemen.
If an office party, again dress in layers and make believe your an onion and peal them off, also if windows available use them or take in a power hand fan or use a folder to cool you down lol..I’m beginning to smile here now as have been there done all the above and will carry on.
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner..one of the worst as so much preping and cooking can make for a hot hell hole before it even begins, If you can make sure someone else cooks or go out..laughing hard now!
OK, if you are cooking then do what I always do, buy a already cooked turkey and prepare most of your sides and deserts the day and evening before, takes off so much stress and you can sweat all over everything and they will never know, with 5 fans blowing on you from every angle, kidding about the dripping in food sweat…tee-hee!
Dressing for the occasion can be the hardest of them all and the daunting task we all fear….What am I going to wear that wont show my sweating, wishing you could just crawl into a dark hole and remain there. I would advise a very light material or dinner jacket, nothing that is going to cling to the body or create more heat.
I swear by dark clothing, hides a multitude of sins, including sweating..ha! I love black and silver as they look so good together, a bit of bling and you can’t go wrong. What I have found helps also is wear some glimmer lotion as if the sweat does arrive you can’t really see it, or as my girls like to call it, Fairy dust
For our hand sweaters, I encourage a cold or half frozen water bottle always remain in your hands and you can use the frozen water melting as your excuse. Also have a face cloth hidden in a pocket or purse. For head sweaters also, go to the bathroom and mop down!
For the ones whom like to have a few drinks, like me, I always have two beers before as this will trigger my sweating and once my body has had the initial shock of alcohol it will not be bad as first arriving and having a drink!!! I tend to go bright red in the chest, neck and face…I wear a shawl and large jewelry to try to hide this.
So my dear friends, members, fellow sweaters, brother and sisters, I encourage you to add your little secrets on what you do to keep the sweat at bay.
Will you be on the naughty or nice list this year? Hee hee…you can use your imagination and help others achieve less sweat this SEASON.

I decided to split the blog from the testimonials to make everything easier to find.
“Hi, I’m from Australia and I would like to say, I would pay whatever dollar to fix up my sweaty arm pit problem, and then I came across Hydrosal!. I just would like to say there is no other product that works as good as this. and I have tried every single product out there and this is by far the best! I will keep using this product until I stop having this problem. Thanks, Jason ”
“I would like to bring to your attention, that I have tried the product that my doctor has recommended Hydrosal. For the pass thirty years I suffered in complete embarrassment, severe sweating from the forehead, and other body areas.
This sweating was triggered by nervousness on my confrontation of an individual that I met, or dealt with on first time basis.
The more I realized I was sweating, the more severe it became. It was devastating for me, and I spoke to many doctors with really no feed back from them. Meeting Dr Benohanian was for me a miracle; Life has given me a second chance. Hydrosal is amazing and very easy to apply with almost 90 to 95 % effective rate for me. Keep up the good work and create more beneficial products like Hydrosal!! Thanks again. ”
“Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I have suffered from excessive sweating as long as I can remember…..the last 10 years specifically, have been the worst. I was ready to have surgery to have my sweat glands removed in my arm pits as nothing seemed to work. My doctor called me 2 weeks ago to tell me about an article that she read in the paper about Hydrosal Professional. After the first 2 days it started to sting a little when I applied the gel, but I got over that fast when I realized that it was working. I just finished my 7 days and have not sweat at all in 5 days. I am absolutely thrilled and hope that others will try this too. I realize that sweating is an embarrassing issue and I myself didn’t talk about it much with other people, but it’s kind of obvious when you can see it through your clothing. Since I no longer have this problem I have been telling my friends and family about it because I know how difficult dealing with this issue is and how much it affects your life. I am surprised to hear how many other people have excessive sweating also. Thanks again and I will continue to spread knowledge about this great product! ”
“Before Hydrosal I would always have to worry about sweat stains in the shirts I used to wear. Now after using Hydrosal I can wear any color I want in any fabric. Hydrosal worked fast too; after 2 days I could already see the results – no more sweat stains. I highly recommend Hydrosal to anybody who has had it with those extremely embarrassing sweat stains and doesn’t want to worry about them anymore! ”
“My story began in high school. Whenever I had a big exam or had to do a presentation in class, I would start to perspire. I tried many different deodorants, changing deodorants almost every other day. I wore dark clothing, trying to mask my condition. I started purchasing only cotton garments as well in an attempt to hide the perspiration. When the condition was at its worst, I would place many tissues or a small towel under my shirt to contain the perspiration. I would have to change clothing once I arrived at an event due to the excessive perspiration. Ten years later, a friend of mine saw an Oprah show on “Hyperhydrosis” and how this was a known medical condition. From her information, I did some research online and found a doctor in Montreal that specialized in the treatment of Hyperhydrosis. The doctor prescribed “Hydrosal”. I put some on everyday for seven days before bed, and it worked! After that, I only need to apply the gel once a week and it continues to work. I’ve been using the gel for two months now. “Hydrosal” does not have any odor, has not caused any discomfort, and has removed my worries about public embarrassment. Thank you for helping me get over my embarrassing condition. ”
“I am delighted to see that after 34 years of experience as a dermatologist, Valeo Pharma is bringing Hydrosal Professional to America. I have had the rare opportunity of treating over 7000 patients suffering from excessive sweating; the affected sites were the underarms, hands, feet,face and groins. Some of them were unquestionably candidates for surgery. Hydrosal, a new first line treatment for excessive sweating, consists of aluminum chloride hexahydrate in a proprietary gel base.Studies have demonstrated that a gel vehicle is better tolerated than an alcohol solution and that may be the reason why such preparations have improved efficacy and are better tolerated. I highly recommend this product as a first line treatment before considering Iontophoresis, Botox® injections or surgery. ”
Antranik Benohanian MD, FRCPC, FAAD
Dr. Benohanian is a Dermatologist at the Montreal University Hospital Center (Saint-Luc Hospital)
“I’ve had plantar hyperhidrosis since childhood, but figured I’d have to suffer through it. This winter my sweaty feet got so wet and cold that I got 2nd degree frostbite on two toes, so I became desperate to find something to help. I found Hydrosal Gel while researching iontophoresis online. I was skeptical but am thrilled with the results! Noticeable difference after two nights and I haven’t had to re-apply for two weeks now (plus, I’m in Hawaii where it’s much warmer than Calgary). My feet are sweat-free but the skin is not dehydrated or itchy. I’m so glad to have found this terrific product! Will also add that the service from Well.ca was great, along with the best price plus free-shipping. Thank you!! ”
“It’s awesome – if you take any prescription medication and the side effect is that you are sweating buckets… well, this is a true life saver. Also a great thing to put on if you want to go out all night dancing as you will not sweat. I am sure the company can improve in the area of how often to apply. Apart from that, if you don’t take medication and just have hyperhydrosis, you would have to use it a lot less after the first week. ”
“This stuff really works! I’ve had excessive sweating for years and had pretty much given up on finding a solution.
I tried Hydrosal gel and after a few days the sweating was gone. Now I only use it a few nights a week. Let’s say I stop using it for a few days. All I have to do is start using it again and by the 2nd night the sweating has stopped again. ”
“I read on the net about this product and thought I would give it a go. I have a little bit of a face perspire issue in tight places like bars where people may be elbow to elbow, or job interviews with stress. I bought it, LOVE it! I use it only when needed before a situation and its all win. HIGHLY recommended and supplier is good also. ”
“ I have never used any product that works as well as Hydrosal Gel. ”
“ This stuff is a life saver! ”
