Avoid foods high in refined carbohydrates. Hydrotherapy and ice therapy is also beneficial. Other than this there are many medications available which you can take.

There is no cure for it. Those thing will help but the ONLY way to get rid of it is to have the sweat gland cut out. But just know they will be back, I have had over 25 surgeries and 4 skin graphs to get rid of them.
