Are you finding it challenging to keep up with iontophoresis day after day, week after week, month after month?
I wondered if many people have trouble keeping up with the treatments, even if the alternative is very unpleasant – sweaty hands and feet etc.
I know a few people who have phases when they falter and skip first one hyperhidrosis…[Read more]
If you are using direct current iontophoresis for hyperhidrosis, it's recommended that you take 15-minute treatments. If you are using pulsed current, you can prolong this, I think, the weaker the current is, the longer the treatment can be. If iontophoresis device is set to 50% wave width pulsed current, you can increase the treatment time for…[Read more]
As far as I know, yeah, Botox blocks excessive sweat regardless of its cause, so you should be good! 😀
It stops the glands, simple as that, so essentially yeah, it deals with the symptoms and not with the cause of excessive sweating. But wait, do you have sweaty hands all the time, or only when you get anxious?
And are you sure that Botox is…[Read more]
I've been living with hyperhidrosis since my teens. It wasn't very bad at first, and I never even knew that I have this medical problem. I only considered myself to be unlucky in my sweating habits, and tried to […]
Melanie started the topic A possible trick to relieve discomfort during iontophoresis in the forum Iontophoresis Forum 9 years, 10 months ago
An interesting tip for everyone who often or continuously feel physical discomfort during iontophoresis.
Basically, it all comes down to this: if your treatments hurt, how about you try to soften the water you are using?
Important: I am not a medical expert at all. I am just giving this advice based on an interesting idea I saw online – and i…[Read more]
E.g. if pulsed current has a better long-term effect on treating sweaty palms, etc.
Sorry if this is off-topic – I wanted to reply to this question.
Casper, from what I know, this really could be the case. The manufacturer of my iontophoresis device – Idromed – states the following as the advantage of pulsed current iontophoresis: ❗

Do you have any local support groups for hyperhidrosis? I mean, local as in Real Life. 🙂
I have a friend who, just like me, suffers from hyperhidrosis. Since there are two of us, we thought how it would be great if we could muster up some courage and start some kind of local support group for hyperhidrosis.
We would essentially like it to be…[Read more]
First of all, to explain the title:
Sweat-Less(TM) and DeodoRite(TM) are FDA-registered natural homeopathic remedies for hyperhidrosis.
I discovered them fairly recently, and ordered one bottle of Sweat-Less. I never used it as a standalone remedy, because I also use iontophoresis (I own Idromed 5 PC). Still, Sweat-Less aims to reduce sweating…[Read more]
Yes, in the end my friend got instructions to wash her underarm pads a.k.a. Drionic applicators less, erm, vigorously. It turned out she used an aggressive soap or something like that, and of course, she wasn't supposed to!
Now she has new pads and they've lasted for the last 3-4 months, and still seem fine – or at least that's what she told…[Read more]
My friend bought Drionic Underarm to treat her armpits 5 weeks ago, and now she has a small problem with it… She asked me about it, but I never used Drionic so I couldn't answer her. Maybe you can do it for me! 🙂
Your mileage may vary. I adore Hushed Sea (haven't we talked about this already, Elena? lol) but I don't think I could take it without sugar. Then again, for someone like Ramona, maybe it's the other way around…
See if you can buy a small package of Hushed Sea and try it out. I think there's a fair chance you will like it. And even if…[Read more]
Yeah, go with Idromed. I have Idromed 5 PC and it is awesome – works like a charm, looks like a stylish gadget, is very easy to pack up, doesn't take up a lot of space and – most importantly for you – is not heavy.
It weighs about 2,5 – 3 kg. Is that too heavy for you? It is like carrying an average bag full of groceries. lol
Do you use regular tap water or some special bottled water? Do you add baking soda into the water? From the start, I've been adding 2 teaspoons of baking soda to the water, as I'd known from before that my home's tap water is rather soft.
Do you have similar suggestions? I heard that some people add antiperspirant solutions to the water, but this…[Read more]
I raise an eyebrow arrogantly, give them “the look” and otherwise pretend like I haven't heard what they said. It boils down to ignoring them… It is better than descending down to their level. Also, I like adding a grain of arrogance to my bearing at that moment, just to prove to them that their lack of manners cannot hurt me!
They act like they…[Read more]
Melanie replied to the topic Have you tried Iontophoresis? DId it work for you? in the forum Iontophoresis Forum 10 years, 7 months ago
I have Idromed 5 PC for about 5 months now, and I am satisfied. Things aren't perfect, but that's my fault – my schedule is hectic and I sometimes skip the treatments. That ruins the maintenance routine, and then I need more treatments, etc. And that's how it goes on and on chaotically. =D
Still, when I use it properly, the iontophoresis machine…[Read more]
I can recommend Hushed Sea Hyperhidrosis Herbal Tea – it's delicious and I'm convinced it helps me maintain a semblance of control over my overactive sweat glands. =) The tea is not a miracle worker on its own and I combine it with other hyperhidrosis treatments, but I noticed further improvements after I started drinking Hushed Sea, so I know the…[Read more]
