Recommended First-Line Hyperhidrosis Treatment
It has been said that there is no better product endorsement than personal use testimonials. Having said this, recommendations from unbiased experts or organizations also provide further proof that a product does what it claims.
DryDerm contains the ingredients and strengths that are recommended as first-line treatment of focal hyperhidrosis. In other words, DryDerm should be your go to treatment from the start. Both the Canadian Hyperhidrosis Advisory Committee (CHAC) and more recently, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) endorse the ingredients in DryDerm as first line agents for treating excessive sweating.
The Rationale behind 'First-Line'
In the world of medical treatments, 'first-line' means that a particular chosen treatment should be tried before all others. The decision to denote a treatment as first-line is not just a chance occurrence but rather a well thought out consensus decision based on reliable, credible and unbiased evidence. The usual parameters include product efficacy, safety, treatment convenience and cost.
The notion of cost-effectiveness is a particularly important factor that relates to first-line treatments. Essentially, it the measure of a treatment's ability to deliver a well established efficacy for a reasonable cost. When a therapy provides good efficacy for a relatively low cost, it is said to be cost-effective.
A good example would be two treatments that are similarly effective in terms of neutralizing excessive sweating. If one of these treatments was significantly less expensive, it would then be regarded as a more cost-effective hyperhidrosis treatment.
A first-line agent is typically the most cost-effective alternative.
So what does all this mean for anyone wondering what treatment to use for their excessive sweating condition? The answer is simple. Because DryDerm is a first-line treatment, you can feel comfortable with your decision to try DryDerm.
