Extreme Palmar Hyperhidrosis. Iontophoresis, Antiperspirants Didn't Work. Any Solutions ?

Hi, I have palmar hyperhidrosis and it s pretty extreme. I cant hang out with my friends anymore and it s affecting my ability in school pretty hard. Iontophoresis didnt work for me, botox costs 500$ and lasts 1 month for me when I use 500 units. Antiperspirants and stuff haven t worked either. Is there any tips or help I can get?

Hi,
Let me give you some tips.Purchase 10%formalin from a chemist and dilute 5ml in a basin of warm water and dip your hands for atleast 10minutes twice daily for about 2 weeks initially and once daily for the next 2 weeks and then thrice weekly regularly.You can also use Aldryspray regularly if you dont get formalin solution.
