£5.25£23.99

Driclor Solution has been specifically formulated to treat excessive perspiration. It works by forming a gel matrix in the effected sweat glands, which reduces and eventually stops the flow of sweat.

Excess sweat is reabsorbed into the body and disposed of in the normal way. Within just a few weeks of using Driclor Solution, excessive perspiration should disappear and sufferers should feel cool and dry.

Driclor anti-perspirant roll on is suitable for use on all skin types and by anyone for whom traditional anti-perspirants are inadequate.

How does Driclor work?

Driclor antiperspirant contains aluminium chloride hexahydrate which works as a strong antiperspirant and blocks the sweat glands.

When you apply Driclor and leave it to dry, it When you wash Driclor off, the sweat glands remain blocked and won’t produce any sweat until the natural skin shedding process unblocks the glands again.

Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

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).
