Drysol – Review
Altogether too many people around the world are plagued with excessive sweating known as hyperhydrosis. Most often there are no apparent reasons for such a profuse amount of moisture and it is exceedingly difficult to control through the use of common antiperspirants. As a matter of fact, hyperhydrosis is not limited to the armpits alone, so it is virtually impossible to stop sweaty palms, soles, and those annoying drips on the face. Drysol was created specifically as a treatment for problem areas and can solve the problem, once and for all, with regular, infrequent weekly applications at night.
Effectiveness and Safety – Ingredients
The key active ingredient in Drysol is Aluminum Chloride in strengths from 6.5% to 20% solutions. The mild, 6.5% solution is effective for sensitive areas such as the face, palms and soles of the feet, whereas the 20% solution is best for underarms. Aluminum Chloride is found to be free from side effects, and the only possible complaint would be a mild burning sensation that is also common to many deodorants and/or antiperspirants. The main difference is that Drysol really works. Just apply it to clean, dry areas before bedtime, and wash it off in the morning. Use it 1 to 3 times per week, not daily.
Effectiveness and Safety – Customer Feedback
In researching customer reviews around the web, there is an abundance of positive feedback. Consumers are getting real results for the first time in their lives. Most are reporting that the very first treatment provides results and they are able to wear solid colors for the first time in years. No one has reported any negative side effects when using Drysol as directed. However, it is always wise to consult your family doctor before trying new products, especially if there are any underlying sensitivities or allergies.
The manufacturer of Drysol, Person & Covey, has been doing business since 1941. They are innovators in developing sun protection and dermatological products and work closely with the medical community to develop products for patients. This California based pharmaceutical company has a well respected name in the medical community and there are no apparent claims filed against them with the BBB online. In today’s society, that in itself is a miracle. Based on the respect Person & Covey has earned in the medical and pharmaceutical community, this is a company to be trusted by consumers.
Value for Price
At first glance, it may appear that Drysol is a bit pricey. However, based on consumer reports, it lasts an inordinately long time. One roll-on bottle can last literally months as it is only applied once or twice weekly. Drysol can be purchased for less than $20 per bottle and even greater savings are possible with specific packages. When compared to the only other known effective treatment, endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy surgery, Drysol is quite cheap in comparison. Based on product ingredients and consumer reports, there is considerable value for price.
Our Verdict – 5 out of 5
While Drysol is considered to be a prescription pharmaceutical treatment for hyperhydrosis, it is available online at significantly reduced prices without the need for an expensive trip to the doctor. Consumer reports are highly positive, no reports of serious side effects and one bottle goes a very long way. The company has built a reputation in the medical and pharmaceutical community. Because of this, we are able to recommend Drysol and award it an almost unprecedented 5 out of 5.
