In my usual quest to find the most current information on focal hyperhidrosis, I came across a medical journal review article* that emphasized the importance of proper treatment administration. I couldn't help but think that some people are probably not get maximum benefit from their topical antiperspirants because of suboptimal use. Improper use is also a principal source of skin irritation which can also lead to poor results.
Keep in mind that other treatment options such as Botox or iontophoresis can be complemented by topical products such as DryDerm. Individuals often tend to try different options witout thinking that they can actually be used together for added benefit.
