Driclor for your Hands

Driclor is an antiperspirant that can be used to help with your Palmar Hyperhidrosis.  There are no specialised forms of Driclor for the hands, instead you use the regular roll on, and apply it to your hands instead of armpit. 

Palmar Hyperhidrosis

Palmar Hyperhidrosis is a very difficult condition to live with, and can cause problems in many areas of your life.  Depending on the amount that your hands sweat, everyday activities can be complicated.  Writing, shaking hands, holding objects and playing an instrument can all be nearly impossible if you suffer from excess sweat of the hands. 

Application of Driclor

It is very important that before you apply Driclor your hands are as dry as possible.  This will help to reduce the risk of any skin irritation from occurring, and allows the antiperspirant to work effectively. 

Driclor should be applied in the evening before you go to bed.  This means that it will be on the skin for around 12 hours, enough time for the aluminium chloride to effectively block the sweat glands.  In the morning it ought to be washed off, and not reapplied. 

You shouldn’t apply too much Driclor to your hands, instead only use as little as possible to cover the area that you wish to treat.  This ensures that your skin will not be irritated unduly by the antiperspirant.  Over use of Driclor is the most common reason for any skin problems that may occur while you are using it. 


Driclor can be used very successfully to help ease your Palmar Hyperhidrosis, although it has to be said that the roll on applicator might make it difficult to use in such a complex area.  The antiperspirant works immediately, and although it ought to be used every night for a week to ten days, after this you will be able to use it less.  Most people find that once or twice each week is enough to stop any excess sweating.
