  • A solution of Aluminum Chloride (Hexahydrate) 20% (w/v) in Anhydrous Ethyl Alcohol (S.D. Alcohol 40) 93%v/v

    INDICATION

    An aid in the management of hyperhidrosis (excess sweating).

    WARNING

    For external use only. Keep out of the reach of children. Do not apply Drysol to broken, irritated or recently shaved skin. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, wash eyes thoroughly with water. If irritation or sensitization occurs, discontinue use or contact a physician. Drysol may be harmful to certain metals and fabrics. Do not use near open flame. KEEP CAP TIGHTLY CLOSED WHEN NOT IN USE TO PREVENT EVAPORATION.

    DIRECTIONS

    To achieve optimum results this procedure should be followed: Drysol should only be applied to absolutely dry skin. Dry skin can be achieved by blow-drying with a hair dryer on a warm setting for a few minutes. Medication should be kept on the skin for 6-8 hours, during which sweating does not occur. This means for best results, Drysol should be applied only before bedtime, since the sweat glands remain inactive during the tranquility of sleep.

    HYPERHIDROSIS OF UNDERARMS (Axillae)

    Apply Drysol evenly to dry skin of underarms. To minimize irritation let the alcohol evaporate. If needed, blow-dry with a hair dryer on a cold air setting, leaving an evenly distributed film of the antiperspirant on the skin. Wear a T-Shirt while sleeping to prevent the medication from being rubbed off on bed linens. Do not apply Drysol to broken, irritated or recently shaved skin. Now check instructions under "next morning".

    HYPERHIDROSIS OF THE PALMS (Hands)

    Apply Drysol evenly to palm(s). Let the alcohol evaporate, leaving a thin film of antiperspirant on the skin. To keep the medication from being rubbed off during sleep, cover palm(s) with a sheet of saran wrap, held in place with cotton glove(s). Do not use adhesive tape. Now check instructions under "next morning".

    HYPERHIDROSIS OF FEET

    Apply Drysol evenly to sole(s). Let the alcohol evaporate, leaving a thin film of antiperspirant on the skin. To keep the medication from being rubbed off during sleep, cover sole(s) with a sheet of saran wrap, held in place with sock(s). Do not use adhesive tape. Now check instructions under "next morning".

    HYPERHIDROSIS OF THE SCALP

    Apply Drysol evenly to the scalp. Avoid contact with eyes. Let the alcohol evaporate, leaving a thin film of antiperspirant on the scalp. To keep the medication from being rubbed off during sleep, wear a plastic shower cap. Now check instructions under "next morning".

    NEXT MORNING

    Depending on the area being treated: Remove the T-shirt, glove(s), sock(s) or shower cap. Remove and discard saran wrap. Wash the treated area thoroughly with a mild soap or a mild shampoo to remove the residual antiperspirant and to prevent skin irritation as well as damage to dry clothing. Then towel dry the skin or scalp. Do not apply other deodorants or antiperspirants while using Drysol. Follow these procedures and repeat applications of Drysol for 2 or 3 nights, until the desired effect (lack of sweating) is achieved. Generally, after that, an application once or twice a week should maintain needed controlled protection from hyperhidrosis. Occasionally, there is some tingling or itching after application. Any irritation it might produce is temporary and will subside if application is avoided for a few days. Drysol is not absorbed but works locally on outer skin.
