Axillary hyperhidrosis - topical treatment with aluminium chloride hexahydrate.

Abstract

Forty-two patients with axillary hyperhidrosis on the waiting list for surgery were treated with topical saturated solution of aluminium chloride hexahydrate in absolute alcohol. There have been 7 failures. Three patients were unable to cope with the treatment and 4 more experienced severe local irritation or soreness; these 4 were submitted to local surgery. This is a simple and effective treatment for the majority of cases of severe axillary sweating.
