Hyperhidrosis Treatment (Infographic)


Since I was feeling especially creative today, I made up the following neat info-graphic to list and compare (at a very high level) the various popular treatment options for Hyperhidrosis!

About Author

I have had hyperhidrosis (palms and feet) since my childhood. I have tried/researched almost every treatment for hyperhidrosis over last decade, and in the process have acquired considerable experience that I hope will help others suffering with hyperhidrosis. I am happy to help you in whatever way I can to manage your excessive sweat problem - see the About page for more details and my contact information. Remember you are not alone, and that hyperhidrosis is entirely manageable with informed treatment. Good luck! PS: I recently published all that I have learnt about Hyperhidrosis in my book No Sweat! I encourage you to check that out as I believe its the best resource out there to understand and manage hyperhidrosis without falling for the miracle cures. Will love to hear your feedback on how to make it better.


  1. The infographic looks very useful: at first glance, it tells me that I should eliminate ETS surgery and Botox, and try to decide on some of the other hyperhidrosis treatments. Am I right?!
    It’s funny, I have never thought before of iontophoresis as being safer than antiperspirants – but now when I think of it, it makes sense. I’m planning to switch to iontophoresis for years now, but keep delaying it… This reminded me to get it moving, thanks. 🙂

      Glad that this provoked some thoughts. I would be careful though – the table is only a very high level summary and there are several nuances that cannot be captured in this infographic – e.g. Botox may not necessarily be bad. If money is not a concern, its probably a good, semi-permanent option (the side effects may be there, but none too serious as its used for cosmetic purposes successfully). ETS, on the other hand, is something I would definitely avoid – unless the impact of Hyperhidrosis is so severe that you would consider the risks worthwhile.

      My advice – see a qualified medical professional and then take a call. Iontophoresis is definitely my favorite, but that just because it works for me.

    This infographic looks like an excellent starting point for everyone who has no idea what hyperhidrosis treatment to choose. I hope it gets shared on social networks! People should see this. 🙂 Of course, to really make a choice of the treatment (or treatments – plural!), one must be better informed (as written in lower Hyperhidrosis Network comment), but I repeat, this graphic nonetheless makes for a great starting point. 🙂

    I actually have actually seen experiments where people have add a excessive armpit sweating product like Certain Dri into the injections for iontophoresis and having amazing results. I think if people were more open to new ideas that we could really find positive results that help hyperhidrosis. I have been using Certain Dri antiperspirant deodorant for years and I have been wanting to try this experiment that I found on Social Anxiety World. I was noticing great results when there from other people on the site when combining a process and a product together. I wonder if other people have tried this idea out? I really would like it to work because I’m already a fan of the product, I just rather not have to have to apply it all the time.
