In order to help hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) sufferers we have tested a system for the treatment of underarms using tap water iontophoresis.
The current was delivered to the underarms using axillae electrodes sleeved in moistened sponge pockets. During 2006 four medical centres treated 28 patients using the sleeved axillae electrodes. Of the 24 patients who completed the treatment 23 had a good result (data on file).
The results of the study showed tap water iontophoresis for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the underarms to be a very good second line treatment for patients where antiperspirants haven’t worked.
We also have underarm sweat shields/pads or manjana under clothing available to protect special clothing or to prevent sweat patches on important occasions such as interviews. For more information and a sample please visit the sweathelp web site.
