Antiperspirants

Antiperspirants are considered the first line of treatment for excessive sweating of the underarms, hands, feet, and sometimes face. They are called the first line of treatment because they are the least invasive and experts recommend that they be tried first, before other more invasive treatments. They are also inexpensive and easy to use.

Botox Injections

Botox injections don't just tackle wrinkles, they can also help control major sweating in the armpits and one the hands, face, and even other body areas. Injections give you the creeps? Teens who've had Botox say it's not that bad and the results are worth it! Besides, your dermatologist has ways to make the procedure more comfortable and most people need to have just one treatment every 7 months or so. Botox is especially useful for armpit hyperhidrosis.

miraDry

miraDry uses a non-invasive handheld device to deliver precisely controlled electromagnetic energy beneath the underarm skin to the specific location of sweat glands, resulting in thermolysis (decomposition by heat) of the sweat glands. While the sweat glands are being eliminated through electromagnetic technology, the top layers of the skin are simultaneously cooled and protected. Sweat glands do not grow back after treatment so the effect can be seen almost immediately and results are lasting. For best results, two procedures spaced three months apart are recommended.

Medications

The most commonly used medications for managing excessive sweating are anticholingerics. These include medicines such as propantheline, glycopyrrolate, oxybutynin, benztropine, and others. Because the drugs used to control excessive sweating have not been studied in controlled trials, their use is based primarily on years of anecdotal evidence. While these oral therapies have not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) specifically for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, these medications have a substantial history of off-label use and are safe when used as directed. Many medical professionals and hyperhidrosis patients experience great success with them.

Armpit Sugery

One of the benefits of local surgery for excessive sweating is that for whatever glands you injure or remove, there is often a permanent result – the affected glands will not produce any more sweat. One of the difficulties is that sweat glands are too small to be seen, even with surgical instruments, so even the most experienced dermatologist is going in "blind." It is difficult for physicians to know how many sweat glands they are removing or damaging and therefore the results can be highly variable.

Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis uses water to conduct a mild electrical current through the skin's surface. While it's not entirely understood how or why iontophoresis works, it is thought that the electric current and mineral particles in the water act together to microscopically thicken the outer layer of the skin, thereby blocking the flow of sweat to the skin's surface. Once this sweat output is blocked or interrupted, sweat production in the treated areas stops.

Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS)

There's a type of major surgery called ETS that's sometimes used to treat excessive sweating on the hands/palms. It involves cutting or otherwise destroying a nerve connection in your body. The surgery is invasive and has big risks -- including compensatory sweating. Compensatory sweating is sweating on another area of your body (like your butt, ugh!) and it can be even harder to deal with than your original sweating problem. For lots of reasons, doctors usually don't recommend this last resort treatment and they especially don't recommend it for young people. Better to try other, less invasive, treatments first.
