John, the problem may be that you are using the machine too frequently. I have noticed if I use it for 3 days in succession I get small burns on the webbed part inbetween my fingers. I think the key is to use it every other day, or every three days until your hand and feet calm down, then you can re...

This site below has an order form to buy the machine at a reduced price of $100. I don't think it ever expires.

Firstly, use the Drysol every night for a week. Use it at night and dry it with a hairdrier, then wash it off in the morning. If you're still sweating after 7 days i'd try it for a few more days and see what happens. If it doesn't work you could try an antiperspirant from online, Odaban and sweat st...

That definition is nonsence really, hyperhidrosis is excessive, mainly uncontrolable sweating anywhere on the body: hands, feet, underarms, facial, scalp, buttocks, back, chest, legs.

Where is your problem area? I think your GP might know quite a bit about the surgery so i'd listen to him first.

You can crumble robinul tablets and add them to water. But it won't be as effective as glycopyrrolate solution.

In regards to ETS all I can say is - don't go there. I know the sweating is terrible but possible post-ETS side effects can be much worse, it's not worth the risk. The people on this site can tell you everything about surgery - http://pub157.ezboard.com/betsandreversals Obviously because of the hair...

Alcohol affects the central nervous system (CNS), which controls a range of body functions including sweat glands. It impairs CNS functioning which causes the usual symptoms of being drunk.. and maybe also impairs sweat secretion in your case, but i've read passages that argue alcohol increases swea...

I've been using Glycopyrrolate for around 10 months or so now. It has been very successful at reducing my hyperhidrosis of the hands and feet. One 20 minute treatment of the area (10 minutes on each polatity) will usually make my hand/foot 95-100% dry for a week or longer before the sweating of the ...
