Does iontophoresis work for feet?

Postby kz90 » Thu Dec 26, 2013 1:47 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone could share their experience using iontophoresis for feet. I have had very severe palmar/plantar hyperhidrosis since birth, and had ETS for my hands 10 years ago (was successful!). While sweaty feet haven't been as problematic as sweaty hands, they're still annoying! Certain social events are difficult to dress for, since sandals are impossible for me to wear and panty hose/heels are barely tolerable.

Here's what I've tried so far:
1. Certain Dri (not effective)
2. Glycopyrrolate (experimented with 1-3 mg/day, not effective)

I've heard mixed reviews about iontophoresis, and am very skeptical about it since most success stories seem to come from people with mild/moderate HH. So, if you're someone with severe HH who's tried iontophoresis, I would love to hear from you!

I also have a few questions...does anyone recommend a particular device? Does the water level cover the entire foot (I would need to be treated up to my ankles)? Any other methods that you've tried (that work) to treat plantar HH? I am open to literally anything.

Thanks everyone!
