When using Hypercare for excessive sweating do I use antiperspirants on the days I do not apply Hypercare?
My daughter has just been perscribed Hypercare for excessive underarm sweating and we understand that she is not to apply deodorants or antiperspirants at the same time as Hypercare but what about on the off days? Do you just use nothing on those days? Kind of scary for someone who knows they sweat a lot.
I don’t know much about Hypercare, but I do have other alternatives for you…
Hyperhidrosis is a fairly common disorder shared by millions across the world. By definition, Hyperhidrosis is the excessive sweating of the head, face, hands, feet and armpits no matter the temperature or conditions.
The sweating is erratic, unpredictable and uncontrollable. You do have some options.
To stop the excessive sweating try:
Drysol is a prescription deodorant that works wonders for underarm, hand and foot sweating. Apply it to your hands, feet, armpits or anywhere else you sweat at night before bed. You only need to apply it once a day – it’s not like regular deodorant. This stuff is Clinical Strength. Beware of irritation with Drysol. You may have to take a day or two off from this treatment if your skin gets too dry, sensative or red with a rash.
2. Drink more water to lower your body temperature.
A lot of people are confused by this solution. They think if they drink more water, it will give them that much more fluid to sweat out. This is totally incorrect. Drinking more water cools your core temperature and will alleviate some of the excessive sweating. Of course now you’ll need to worry about all those bathroom breaks.
3. Drink Green Tea or Sage Tea at night
Tea contains an astringent property which will dry out oils and prevent excess moister from escaping the skin. It essentially drys you from the inside out.
In addition to helping your complexion, green tea will neutralize many of the toxins that create the pungent odor in sweat. By the way, that odor is caused by bacteria that treats your sweat as a breeding ground. Gross!
4. Try Certain Dri (non-prescription deodorant)
You can buy this one at most pharmacies. Certain dry is a little less abrasive than Drysol so you won’t need to worry as much about irritation. It is however a little less strong. You’ll want to gauge your level of Hyperhidrosis by first trying Certain Dri. If your sweating continues, upgrade to Drysol and that should do the trick.
5. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine
Don’t underestimate the power of your diet. Onions, Garlic, Curry, Coffee and a whole host of other ingredients are powerful triggers for hyperhidrosis sweating. Cut out some of these cultprits and see gradual but noticeable results. Add leafy greens and tea into your diet for a positive effect on sweating. Changing your diet will really cut out the spontaneous sweating from your daily lunch breaks.
6. Try Iontophoresis treatments.
This is more of a phase 3 solution. Try the clinical deodorants and diet fixes first. However, there is a treatment called Iontophoresis where you place your hands and feet into bowls or plates. The plates are filled with mineral water. Connected to the plates is an Iontophoresis electromagnetic device. Gentle electic pulses are distributed through mineral water. The minerals bond and temporarily change the nature of your sweat pores to block the sweat. This treatment works well. You can learn about it through the Source link I’ve provided below.
7. Try a Sage Tea Soak
There’s something called a Sage Tea solution what you do is…
a. Buy Sage Tea from your supermarket
b. Fill a large bowl with room temperature water
c. Put the sage tea bags in the bowl and let the tea dissolve a bit.
d. soak your hands for 15 minutes in the bowl.
Sage Tea will act as an astringent to dry the skin and prevent excessive sweating for many days to follow.
Don’t just do this soak one day. Do it everyday for 5 days straight (15 minutes at a time) and you’ll see great results.
If your hands tan from the tea, just wash them in the sink with antibacterial soap. The residue will come off easily.
8. ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery)
If the sweating is bad enough, some people will opt towards ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery). This is, however, a LAST resort. I recommend you try everything else possible before opting towards surgery. You can speak with your Dermatologist to find out more.

Brands of deodorant that do not have antiperspirant in them?
I use a medication at night called hypercare to stop my sweating. It says not to use another antiperspirant with it. My armpits feel extremely dry during the day though because I am used to having my deodorant/antiperspirant (Secret brand) on.
What are some deodorant brands that do not have antiperspirant? Or what can I do to not have this dry feeling all day, some kind of moisturizer or something?
Hypercare and Deodorant?
I was prescribed Hypercare for excessive sweating yesterday. My doctor said it’s fine to use just a deodorant and not an antiperspirant but the information sheet in the box says not to use any antiperspirants OR deodorants. What should I do?
i use hypercare and i use deodorant with it. its really difficult for me to find just a deodorant that i’m not allergic to, personally, so i’ve recently started using an antiperspirant deodorant instead of ust deodorant and i haven’t had a problem yet, i’m actually researching now as to why i’m not supposed to but its only been two or three days…
My Hypercare Solution prescription deodorant is irrtating. How often should I use it etc?
Hey all. I’ve had a major sweating problem since the 7th grade, and now I’ve chosen to use hypercare. I’ve been using it for about 3-4 days now, and its working great. I am barely sweating, and I feel much more confident. But I had a few questions. One, how often am I supposed to use it. Two, on the days that I don’t use it, am I able to wash my underarms in the shower. And also, I am having an irritation problem. When I put it on after my shower at night, it itches like CRAZY. Its rediculous, and I have to scratch it or else I’d go insane, but I try to resist. Although the irritation goes away during the day, but it only comes back at night/in the mornings. Hope you could help.
Can I wear deodorant while using Hypercare?
The instruction says “Do not use other deodorants or antiperspirants while using this medicine” so does this mean that I can wear deodorant on the days that I do not use Hypercare?
I’m not sweating anymore but my underarm odor is still there.
