For the last few years I have been suffering with sore hands. The palms of my hands get incredibly hot sand this leads to them getting really red and sore. On one of my many trips to the doctors about my hands let to as trainee doctor prescribing Driclor to me. The doctors thinking was that perhaps my hands were getting sore because they were getting sweaty and Driclor is a medicine that is designed to stop sweating.
I believe that Driclor cans be used on any part of the body. I used Driclor on my hands. It comes in a roll on like a deodorant and it is really easy to apply. You roll it on just before bed for best results and wait until the morning before washing it off. I believe you use it as night time because your sweat glands are less active then. It is prescribed that you use Driclor for around one week every night and then every few days after that. Eventually it is supposed to stop you sweating altogether.
For me Driclor did not work at all. Every morning after using it my hands really stung. I used it for over a week and it didn't reduce the moisture in my hands at all.
It turns out that the problem with the palms of my hands was contact dermatitis and nothing to do with sweating anyway. Obviously this treatment was not the right thing for me but maybe it is good for others who are correctly prescribed it.
Clinically proven antiperspirant for the treatment of excessive perspiration Driclor is a clear, colourless solution which is indicated for the treatment of excessive perspiration of the underarms, the hands and the feet.
