The medical device Electro Antiperspirant has been used at the dermatovenerology clinic to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the palms, soles, and underarms since March 2012. Its efficacy was evaluated in a total of 8 patients (3 men and 5 women). In all patients, there was a significant reduction or even remission of symptoms. The effect was evident as early as after one to two weeks. Maintenance treatment took place mostly in the interval of once per two weeks, in two patients once per month, and in one patient the effects persisted for two months. All patients rated the treatment very positively. One patient purchased the device for home use at the end of the treatment.* full statement here

Excessive sweating of the palms, also called palmar hyperhidrosis, is probably the most annoying form of this condition. Sweat glands in the palms are the only ones in the human body we can control by our will and mind. However, when you suffer from excessive sweating, you lose the ability to control the sweating of the palms, both the intensity and timing. This then brings about mostly social and working difficulties. As sweat literally drips from the hands, it is almost impossible to stay calm when shaking hands.
Excessive sweating of the feet, on the other hand, can be concealed more easily. However, if we enclose our feet into airtight shoes, we expose ourselves to a high risk of skin infestation by fungal infections and parasites, which thrive in humid environments. If you go for slippers or sandals, your feet become slippery and get dirty very quickly. In addition, bacterial decomposition in sweat creates odour. Disturbed and irritated skin occurs shortly afterwards.
Excessive armpit sweating does not affect our social lives as much as hyperhidrosis of the palms, however, the aesthetic aspect of this form of the disease is probably the worst. Sweaty clothes, stains in the armpits, and an irritating odour similar to that from sweaty feet. On top of that, you have to wear dark clothes only, as these can at least partially disguise your sweaty clothing.
Excessive sweating of the head and palms are the most visible forms of hyperhidrosis. Though you can hide sweaty palms in pockets, drops of sweat running down your face are a different story. Moreover, looks of disgust by people around you do not make it much easier for you. If you are more than familiar with the above symptoms and you wish to start controlling your sweating, together with your life, the second generation Electro Antiperspirant can help you to fight hyperhidrosis.
Excessive sweating of the back, abdomen, or chest are relatively rare forms of the disease, medically known as hyperhidrosis. One could say that such sweating can be easily camouflaged with clothes and that there is no need to worry. The opposite is true. As in the case of excessive sweating of the armpits, even excessive sweating of the back and other body parts can literally soak your clothes and create stains that cannot be overlooked. Such sweating occurs when exercising and especially in winter, when coming from outside into a warm indoor environment.
