How do you use Anhydrol Forte?

For adults, children and the elderly:
– Use only on the armpits, hands or feet.
– Ensure that the treated areas are completely dry before applying the product. To achieve this do not bathe or shower immediately before applying the product.
– Apply it last thing at night, just before going to bed (this is because your sweat glands tend to be least active while you are asleep).

1) Allow the product to dry naturally (this should only take a couple of minutes), then wash the hands (unless treating them).
2) Leave the product on overnight, then wash it off thoroughly in the morning.
3) Initially, apply Anhydrol Forte overnight in this way for two nights in a row, then do not use the product for the next two nights.
4) Repeat this two-nightly treatment cycle for as long as necessary.
5) Increase or decrease the frequency of application to suit your own requirements

Using other antiperspirants or deodorants:
The use of ordinary antiperspirants or deodorants is not necessary when using Anhydrol Forte. If you still wish to use these
types of products, you should either:
– apply them only on the days in between, when you are not using Anhydrol Forte, or;
– apply them after washing off Anhydrol Forte the next morning, making sure that all antiperspirants and deodorants are washed off and the skin is completely dry before re-applying Anhydrol Forte.

Only use it on the skin of your armpits, hands and feet and avoid getting it in your eyes or mouth. Anhydrol Forte can stain clothes, so make sure it is dry before getting dressed. You should also avoid getting it on any jewellery or metal surfaces.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Excessive sweating is common and can affect the whole body or just certain areas. Sometimes it gets better with age but there are things you can do and treatments that can help.

Excessive sweating can happen for no obvious reason, because of another condition you may have or as a side effect of medication you’re taking.

Things you can do to help with excessive sweating

Do

wear loose-fitting clothes to minimise signs of sweating
wear socks that absorb moisture and change your socks at least twice a day if possible
wear leather shoes and try to wear different shoes day to day

Don’t

do not wear tight clothes or man-made fabrics – for example, nylon
do not wear enclosed boots or sports shoes that may cause your feet to sweat more
do not do things that might make your sweating worse – for example, drinking alcohol or eating spicy food

Treating severe excessive sweating
If there’s no obvious cause for your sweating, and nothing seems to be helping, then you may be referred to a specialist (dermatologist).

Side Effects

Like all medicines, Anhydrol Forte can cause side effects, although not everyone will experience them. If you are experiencing side effects, it can mean that you are applying Anhydrol Forte too frequently.

The most common side effects of Anhydrol Forte are skin irritation and redness at the site of application. For a full list of Anhydrol Forte side effects, please see the patient information leaflet.
